Courting Misfortune by Regina Jennings ~ Review

Lucie's Review: Mischief abounds in the town of Joplin. 

Calista York is determined to complete her mission and secure her job as a Pinkerton operative, she is clever and has admirable intentions, she doggedly pursues her target. 

Matthew Cook is a missionary who is determined to turn the town of Joplin around, he was hard to like with his high horsed opinions that he knew what was best for others, and while he wasn't entirely wrong, sometimes he could have gone about things more tactfully. 

This was a hard book for me to get into, there is definitely a lot going on and a fun plot, but I found the main characters hard to like, and felt that at times that it reached too hard to find the humor. I very much enjoy the supporting characters like, Granny, Maisie, and baby Howie who was adorable. 

Overall, this was my second time reading a book by this author and while I enjoyed many parts of the book, there were also parts that I found not to my personal taste, though I can see why many of my friends really enjoyed it. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
