Revell Review- The Trouble with Patience by Maggie Brendan

Afternoon everyone!! I actually read this book a month ago but had to wait for the blog tour to post so here I am with...




Patience Cavanough,new in town, is going to do her late grandmother's old, broken down boarding house. When the stubborn, arrogant, sheriff Jedediah Jones publicly humiliates her in the center of town, Patience is even more irritated with him. As the need to work together becomes evident, Patience begins to exercise her name...and finds herself beginning to actually like the marshal. Then Cody starts coming around and Jed seems way too overprotective. When unexpected situations evolve into a crime-solving situation, Jed and Patience's two-stepping becomes more. Will they fix the situation? Can things work between them? 

Jedediah Jones can't believe the gall of the strong willed newcomer, Patience Cavanough questioning his authority in the middle of a law situation. When she storms into his office demanding an apology and choking down his mud thick coffee, Jed unknowingly falls just a little bit in love with her. Except she's not his type which is why it makes no sense that he's jealous to find another man helping Paitience paint her boarding house. When the unlikely two end up having to work together to solve crimes, Jed can't help but admire her spunk and tenderheartedness. Yet, his past keeps him from exploring a relationship with the lovely lady...doesn't it? With the danger steadily increasing, will they even make it out? 

*I loved*

I loved Patience from the very start of this book. The tenderheartedness and spunk mix that she showed to Jed from the beginning really had me. The story wasn't anything special but it was really sweet just the same and had a surprising amount of mystery for a western...very cool!! The town was a really sweet little western town that as another reviewer said "reminded me of mayberry". 

*Not my favorite*

The only thing I didn't like about it is the speed of the story. I felt it was a little slower then I would like but it was still good. It also was not a very unique story but still very cute.
*My Rating*

I give The Trouble with Patience...

4 stars!!
*My overall thoughts*

The Trouble with Patience by Maggie Brendan is a sweet western/mystery that I really enjoyed. The characters were friendly, I loved the banter between the main protagonists, and the town was so charming!
*My Favorite Excerpts*

1.  Jedediah: “I’ve never needed help from any woman and don’t intend to start now.”

           Patience: “Perhaps we can start with your manners – for example; when a man insults a women in front of half the town, it’s customary to apologize!”

          Jedediah: “Apologize? When you’re intruding on the law? Is that the way a lady behaves? Hardly, now, if you’ll excuse me…don’t let the door slam on your backside as you leave.”
