A hero in the Making by Laurie Kingery

My book review today is on the Love Inspired Historical, A Hero in the Making. This book is one of the Brides of Simpson Creek Series. I enjoyed this book very much. Laurie does a great job with westerns, you'll laugh, you'll cry, and it will touch your heart. Her characters are broken, hurting people that persevere against all odds, you will love them.

Ella Justiss is an orphan that grew up in an asylum, she doesn't want anyone to know of her past, in fact she is unable to remember some of the horrors. She has quit her cooking job at the hotel and has opened her own restaurant in the back room of the bar. Unfortunately she has problems with the drunken men at times. Her dream is to own her own place and she saves diligently for that. One evening she is rescued by a handsome man traveling through with a medicine show.

Nate Buhannan is trying to get to California. His cousin has a job for him, a job that would bring him wealth and riches but he has to get enough money to get there. Nate hooked up with a huckster that traveled all over and would eventually take him to the train station. He was able to rescue the pretty little Ella but couldn't seem to get her out of his mind. After a full day of selling his medicine, Salali wanted to go to town, (he has a drinking and gambling problem) they argued and Salali hit Nate over the head and left him for dead. When he awoke everything was gone and the sheriff was there to arrest him for tearing up the bar and Ella's restaurant.

Nate is freed and agrees to help restore the bar and the restaurant. So the journey begins; Ella can't trust the man, Nate is convinced no one can get past the Salali thing but can't get Ella out of his head, but the whole town open up to the couple to help them. A great story of restoration and forgiveness. You'll love it.

Now God bless you and have a great week.
