Holding the Fort (Fort Reno #1) by Regina Jennings

When dance hall singer Louisa Bell visits Fort Reno to see her brother, she is mistaken for the governess that the harried Major Daniel Adams is waiting for. Between his rowdy troops and his two daughters, he has more responsibility than he can handle alone. Eager for the opportunity, Louisa sets out to show the widower that she is a perfect fit.

She now lives outside Oklahoma City with her husband and four children.


My Review

As soon as I turned the cover of this book the author had me walking in Louisa Bell’s shoes, and loving this girl. A big heart filled with compassion, and when she becomes homeless decides to go to her brother who is in the brig in Fort Reno.
Be ready for a few chuckles and wonder how she does what she does, but with such a loving way, that faux pas are soon forgotten, but we do see what a great mind she does possess with her chess playing. Can a bar room singer get away with posing as a governess, well your about to see it happen, well kind of, until the mother-in-law goes falling down.
Come and see how our lovely Lola Bell perceivers and we get some historical information along the way, and meet Major Daniel, the father of the girls and head of the fort.
When the book ended I was ready for more, I wanted to stay here with these delightful folks.
I received this book through Bethany House Publishing Blogger Program, and was not required to give a positive review.
