Author: Maggie Brendan

Paperback: 336 Pages

Series: Virtues and Vices of the Old West (Book 2)

Publisher: Revell (February 2, 2016)


Rachel Matthews isn’t one to rely on others to take care of her. Homeless and alone, she still wants to make her own way and her own money to buy back the family ranch–even if she’s forced into the life of a dance hall girl. Horrified by her circumstances, Rachel’s brother, who is away mining for gold, sends a friend to rescue her. Cattle baron John McIntyre is focused on acquiring as much land as possible in Montana and has little time to deal with a dance hall gal. Rachel isn’t sure she can take one more day in John’s home–especially once she discovers that he’s the one who holds ransom the key to her family’s future. Sparks fly between this spunky, independent heroine and the ruggedly handsome hero as they navigate the snarled terrain of pride, greed, faith, and love in Maggie Brendan’s delightful series set in the Old West.

My Review:

If you’re looking for a great book to read Maggie Brendan is the author to choose. A Sweet Misfortune has it all, entertaining characters and an interesting setting. This novel is so much more than a Historical Romance. This is a story that is not only about love but, a story about forgiveness, humility, and grace. There isn’t much suspense or adventure to be found within these pages. Each and every conflict wraps up rather quickly leading to a predictable but, satisfying ending. Although this is the second book in the series it can be read as a stand-alone novel.


I received this book free from the publisher through the Revell bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Happy Reading!
