    charming historical romance

    Dance hall singer Louisa Bell finds herself out of a job, and, not knowing what else to do, sets out for Fort Reno, where her brother Bradley serves in the cavalry--and has recently gotten into trouble with his commanding officer. Hoping she can find a job there, when she's mistaken for the governess Major Daniel Adams has sent away for, she doesn't correct the error. Instead, she accepts the job tutoring his two daughters as she tries to take Major Adams' measure and help Bradley get back into his good graces without arousing the major's suspicions. Daniel knows something isn't right with his governess--her story doesn't quite add up and she doesn't have the makings of a real governess--but he also finds that she might be exactly what he and his daughters need. I've read and enjoyed several of Regina Jennings' books, but this one is easily my favorite. This is a charming historical romance. The characters were terrific, including secondary characters whom I'm hoping to see again later in the series. The story moves forward quickly and was just a lot of fun to read. Can't wait for the next book in the series! I received a complimentary copy of the book. All opinions are my own.

    Wichita, Kansas 1885 Louisa Bell, with the captivating voice, is the star performer at the Cat-Eye Saloon, until she’s not! Private Bradley Willis, her act-before-you-think little brother, is stationed at Ft. Reno in Indian Territory. Word has it he’s found trouble… again. Being desperate for work and a roof, and determined to find a way to help her brother, she heads off for the fort with as many dancehall dresses as she can manage. In her mind, soldiers must need entertainment. Along the way, she meets a kindly Mennonite woman, Mrs. Sheridan, who is also headed to the fort to become a governess to Major Daniel Adams children. However, an awful case of hay fever has changed those plans. She is distraught at not being able to deliver the chest of books she has brought for the Major. Louisa offers to take them for her. Mrs. Sheridan is grateful, and leaves her “a more serviceable blouse and skirt; so she won’t ruin her fine things traveling in a coach.” Ch. 3 “May God make your trip good and no sinning and everything good,” Louisa said. Mrs. Townsend’s eyes twinkled. “That, my dear, is the most original benediction I’ve ever received.” I absolutely loved the way Daniel and Louisa met for the first time. It is so unique I won’t spoil it here. Later, when Louisa arrives at the fort, Lt. Jack Hennessey mistakes her for the new Mennonite governess, and she decides not to correct him or reveal her relationship to Bradley Willis. Privately, she pulls him aside to describe her account of an accident befalling one of the troopers. The details send Jack into a fit of laughter he has a hard time hiding. Jack has a big heart, and often a twinkle in his eye. I hope to learn more of his story in future installments. He shows Louisa to her “quarters”; Major Adams home! She soon meets his rowdy daughters, Caroline & Daisy, who aren’t the small children she was expecting. How will she possibly be able to teach them anything? Major Adams is a no-nonsense, widower of ten years. He has worked hard to climb the ranks of the military, and he expects the same of his soldiers. When Private Willis decides to blow off steam by drinking and shooting out lanterns on the base, he throws him in the guard house. But the WAY he did it, gives him pause. Meanwhile, he’s had all he can take of his bickering daughters and decides it’s high time to bring in reinforcements. A stern, older teacher from the Mennonite community that he respects so much should make a perfect governess for his girls, and hopefully, keep his busy-body mother-in-law at bay. I enjoyed this historical, Christian romance, and recommend it to others. You can also look up on you tube, “Fort Reno Interview” where the author shot a location video in OK! (about 4 minutes).

    Witty and Enchanting!

    4.5 "I am Lovely Lola Bell. He will be enchanted with my performance and will love my show." . . . . . . Except that Louisa Bell has landed the job of a governess, albeit by mistake, for Major Daniel Adams' precocious girls on remote Fort Reno in Indian Territory. Escaping her life as a dance hall singer after being replaced by a younger, more promiscuous talent; Louisa heads towards her unruly brother's last known residence as a cavalry soldier. She never expected her ruse to last more than a few days, especially following her unbelievable introduction to the handsome fort commander. Major Daniel Adams was expecting a more severe rendition of a governess than Miss Louisa Bell. How can he possibly endure the lovely creature that is stumbling through his girls' lessons, privately rendezvousing with one of his most annoying soldiers, and appearing in his dreams as an angel in blue satin? She is hiding something, he is sure of it. Join Regina Jennings as she expertly captures your sympathy, empathy and undivided attention while Louisa and Daniel march their way towards the future with more than one unexpected, and often comedic, turnabout. Checkmate! I received a copy of this book from the publisher. The opinions stated are entirely my own.

    Christian Romance done right

    This is Christian Romance done right. Louisa Bell, aka Lola Bell, is a dance hall singer who has just been replaced by a younger woman. With nowhere to go, she heads to Fort Reno where her brother is stationed. She's just learned that he's gotten himself in trouble, so she hopes that she can help him. In the meantime, Major Daniel Adams is struggling with raising his daughters who are getting to an age that they need a woman's help. So, he decides to send off for a governess from the nearby Mennonites. While enroute to the fort, Louisa meets Major Adams' intended governess who is turning back due to allergies and agrees to deliver the educational materials to the Major. Upon arrival with the books, she is mistaken for the governess. Without any other options, Louisa decides to continue with the ruse, but as she gets to know the girls and their father, her deception weighs on her conscience. Can she reveal her true identity and risk getting sent away? What follows is a lot of humor, tender romance, and a slice of history. Within the developing romance between Louisa and the Major are some truly funny scenes. And, even though this is a fictional story, the author details at the end how real history and real people were introduced within the story. A primary theme within the story is the redemption available through Jesus. At the beginning of the story, Louisa doesn't trust God or church goers. But, as she observes other Christians and listens to them, she softens and accepts the Gospel message. Another smaller theme is forgiveness. Will she be forgiven if she reveals her past and the deception she's living as a governess? Romance - G / tame PG Language - clean Violence - one fight scene, man thrown from horse and hits head, causing bleeding. My rating - 5 stars
