Litefuse Blog Tour: Song of My Heart by Kim Vogel Sawyer

Sadie Wagner has always been devoted to her family. So when her stepfather is injured and can't work, she decides to leave home and accept a position as a clerk at the mercantile in Goldtree, Kansas. Goldtree also offers the opportunity to use her God-given singing talent--though the promised opera house is far different from what she imagined. With her family needing every cent she can provide, Sadie will do anything to keep her job.

McKane comes to Goldtree at the request of the town council. The town has been plagued by bootlegging operations, and Thad believes he can find the culprit.

After he earns enough money doing sheriff work, he wants to use it to pay for his training to become a minister.

Thad is immediately attracted to the beautiful singer who performs in Asa Baxter's unusual opera house, but when he hears her practicing bawdy tunes, he begins to wonder if she's far less innocent than she seems. And when Sadie appears to be part of the very crimes he's come to investigate, is there any hope the love blossoming between them will survive? Purchase a copy here.

My Review:

This is a really sweet story, with some really enjoyable characters.
When Sadie Wagner's Dad is injured and unable to take care of his family, she moves for Indiana to Kansas. Her Cousin Sid had written that he was able to procure her work, at the mercantile, and singing [which Sadie is thrilled about].
Also moving to Goldtree, KS is Thad McKane, he has been recruited to be the Sheriff. The Mayor wants to kept it quiet, but he has fears of bootlegging going on.
I enjoyed the way Thad is drawn to the sweet girl. He has a rival in Sadie's cousin Sid, he wants her to think of him as something more than a Cousin, which he is, but not really. You will also the colorful characters of Melva and Shelva, and their not so nice brother Asa. There is a lot of Forgiveness to be sought from God, but they need to forgive themselves and others first. There are some twists and and turns in this quick read, hard to put down, story. Enjoy!

I received this book from Bethany House, and was not required to give a positive review.
