The Virtues and Vices of the Old West series has been an intriguing series to read. This is the third book in the series and at first, I was a little torn. I had really liked Patience in Book 2. She was quirky and easy to like. in Trusting Grace, Grace was easy to like, but she was more predictable. It wasn’t a bad thing and I did like her, but Patience has been the character in the series that stuck out with me!
Grace, though, had me grow in liking her. She was predictable in her behavior, but she had gone through the death of her husband. She was just trying to survive and keep the farm afloat. Robert was the character that was more unpredictable. I fluctuated between really liking him, feeling sorry for him, and then not liking him. I ended up liking him by the end, but he had his own struggles.
It actually seemed like the perfect match because of how they both are now single and the circumstances surrounding the reason they are single. However, they also seem like they have impossible hurdles to jump in a relationship because of all the baggage that has come with their past.
Maggie has captured me throughout this entire series. One reason that I love her as an author is that she writes with historical accuracy. Many of the things she writes about are actual places or actual people. She does an excellent job weaving in facts with her creative story. I have closed her books on this series while having learned more about the Old West. I’m not ready to see this series end, but I know she’s going to have another great book coming out right after!
I received this book free from Revell Publishers.
