A Hero in the Making by Laurie Kingery ~ Review

A Hero in the Making (Brides of Simpson Creek, #7)Lucie's Review:

Nate Bohannan is an unlikely hero, he came to Simpson Creek as a banjo player & sidekick for a medicine show. He has his dreams, non of which include staying very long in one place.
Ella Justiss is determined to make it on her own, she puts everything she owns into making a go of her cafe, but the only place she can afford is the backroom of a saloon, so when the saloon gets torn up, so do Ella's dreams.

Can two unlikely people with different dreams come together to find what they both need?

Ella and Nate are both likable characters, who want to move forward with their lives. Many Simpson Creek regulars reappear to help them on their way, including the Spinster's Club which is still alive and well though their focus has changed.

This book has plenty of great interaction between the characters, as well as humor, drama, action, and the occasional inevitable misunderstandings. I loved how both Ella and Nate grew in their faith and character. This was a delightfully engaging read that stands well on it's own, though it is part of a series. I especially loved the ending--but I can't tell you about that! ;)
