A Sweet Misfortune is Maggie Brendan’s latest and deals with a very peculiar woman’s job in the old West. Saloon girl dancing, in which we find the abonded heroine in the first few pages working as. This was a pretty quick read for me, enter a rugged rancher cowboy who swoops in to save his best friend’s sister from the only job she was able to find and you have a battle of wills. This was a great old western story of a couple of people who have been through a lot of hurt and trying to make a life in the rugged, often less civilized western part of our country. I immensely enjoyed this lighthearted romance and wondered how long before these two love birds saw the truth of their feelings. With the help of a grandmother and the housekeeper, a few close friends, and other love interests for these two, you have a sweet adventure and romance story to the altar. I received a copy from Revell Publishing for an honest review and the opinions are my own.
