    A Hero in the Making by Laurie Kingery Brides of Simpson Creek #7 4 STARSThis seems to be a good series I have only read the last two books but I would love to go back and read the first 5 of them This was a nice story Some things you could see what was going to happen but others had no idea ofNate did not have much left but skills his father taught him He did not have to make right the wrongs is boss Robert Salali did He was talented and wanted to help others Ella Justiss was a good cook but she had a hard time trusting men and others The you learn about Ella you want to help her She had some tough things in her life Makes you glad that I had loving parentsThe setting for this book is Simpson Creek Texas 1869Ella Justiss has a café in the back of saloon She wants to someday have her own café with a building She works all the time It is not the best location with the drunks Her business and saloon were destroyed by Salali and Nate was left behind and everything he had takenNate was working with Salali medicine show for a little money but mostly to help him get to California He has big plans But he wants to help rebuild the furniture that was destroyed If he can get tools and would he could fix things So he trades his skills for room and boardDose talk a lot about prayer scriptures and church in a good way that is natural to the story It does inspire you Makes for a clean read and thankful for what we do haveI was given this ebook to read so I could give a honest review of the story by Net Galley and Harleuin

    This book is set in Texas during the time of the Old West Ella has a history that she wants to keep in the past Her life has been altered by emotional and physical abuse by her caregivers as a child It is hard for her to open her heart and mind to others She doesn't feel worthy of love and friendshipNate came into the small town as a sidekick to a man selling a miracle elixir sure to fix all ills He does it to earn money and passage San Francisco His plans are interrupted when the business goes bad and he is left to atone for the sins of his employerI enjoyed this story of two people who have had problems growing up They both need someone to stabilize them and help them through problems This book dealt with the issues of redemption and forgiveness It also content of dealing with the past and moving forward To find healingThis book is a Christian romance I enjoyed that the characters used faith or rediscovered faith to help in their decisions

    I have NO idea why I accepted a review copy of a book written by an evangelical Christian but I'll try to keep an open mind

    Ella is trying to make her own way She operates a café in the back room of the local saloon One evening a stranger saved her from an unruly man Soon after her café and the saloon are trashed and the stranger stays to help repair the damage when it’s figured out it was his boss who did the damage As much as Ella wants to trust Nate her past keeps her from embracing a future with himWhat I liked Nate and Ella were very likeable and the towns people made this book interesting I have not read the books preceding this one but the author did a good job of telling enough of the previous characters that I did not feel like I need to go read any of the other books Both Nate and Ella had issues from their past they needed to work through which gave the book depthWhat I did not like This book felt short Time seemed to jump around and I felt like there could have been to the story I know that these books are shorter in general but I really felt it with this book The climate of the plot felt rushed Overall the book was okay but not as good as it could have beenhttpabbiesreadingcornercom20140

    I love historical westerns and this one has a number of uniue twists that make it stand out I love that Nate really is a hero in the making He has a noble heart but that doesn't always translate into noble actions He has a somewhat dubious job when we first meet him He knows it but justifies away his misgivings until it's nearly too late His journey toward becoming a true hero makes for a satisfying read Mind you he's never perfect and makes plenty of mistakes but his brash cheerful personality win over most of the townspeopleExcept Ella At first Ella's distrust runs deep and lasts longer than it should By slow degrees the author reveals just why that is A painful past haunts Ella Nate can see that and his tenderness and care even when Ella is at her prickliest makes him a true hero in my booksPlenty of plot twists and enough emotional angst makes A Hero in the Making an excellent readMy thanks to Harleuin and Net Galley for a review copy of this book
