Holding the Fort
(The Fort Reno Series
By: Regina Jennings
Publisher: Bethany House
Louisa Bell (aka Lovely Lola), didn’t want to be a dance hall singer in the first place, but due to circumstances beyond her control, she either had to work at the Cat-Eye Saloon or starve. Louisa wasn’t surprised when the owner of the saloon, Tim-Bob gave her the boot in favor of a younger girl, whom she felt had potential…potential to be his next lady-love. It couldn’t have come at a worse time and to top it all off, her brother; Bradley was in trouble again with Major Adams at Fort Reno. With no place to go, she packed her belongings and headed out to Indian Territory to help him.
Major Adams had two young daughters that his mother in law threatened to take away from him if he didn’t provide a new governess for them. When Louisa arrived at the Fort, with some reading material in hand she was mistaken for the governess who never arrived. Although her methods were somewhat unorthodox and she was often in over her head, Louisa was determined to keep her job and help her brother without letting Major Adams, know who she really was.
This was such a delightful book, that once I started it, I couldn’t put it down. It is sure to bring a smile to your face. It is an easy read and I love that it was interspersed with history along with a budding romance. I have read several books by Regina Jennings and have enjoyed all of them, but this one is by far my favorite. I cannot wait for the next in the series.
