MARRYING MISS MARSHALL--A book review

Marrying Miss Marshal Marrying Miss Marshal by Lacy Williams

My rating: 5 of 5stars

I wish I could give this book more than 5 stars.

Marrying Miss Marshal is such a delight. I loved it. Fast-paced but one of the sweetest love stories I’ve ever read. Which is surprising when the heroine is a tall, strong, willowy girl who is tough enough to stomp out a bar brawl, ride straight into a cattle stampede to save the male hero, and then go after cattle rustlers and murderers.

Author Lacy Williams is brilliant in the way she fills out the characters, Danna Carpenter and Chas O’Grady, the tenderfoot detective that comes into town. Nothing stereotypical about these characters, but fully complex human beings with all the longings of any man and woman.

It’s not just that Danna wants to fill the shoes of her late husband, the Marshall, she wants all that entails the life of a woman—love, children, learning how to be feminine. As the reader we feel those emotions through both her and Chas.

This debut author has a great career before her. Her writing is wonderful, a voice that is soft at times, but packs such an emotional punch.

Yes, it's a very nice Love Inspired novel in the Christian category of Harlequin romances. I hope you enjoy it.

This are a lot of romance readers out there who want a clean read and one that will encourage their faith.
