The Lady's Mine by Francine Rivers // Review

My Review: 

A western romance, filled with clashes of culture and character, conflict and romance. 

Kathryn Walsh finds herself in a rough and tumble boom town, after inheriting a house and claim from her deceased uncle. A far cry from the Eastern society she is used to, but she is determined to make  it work. Upon her arrival she stirs the interest and ire of the predominantly male townsfolk with her scathingly honest opinions. 

An entertaining read filled with a full cast of colorful characters, I liked Kathryn's grit, as well as being able to admit when she was wrong. I liked her determination and her love for the town of Calvada.  I loved her friendships with Ronya and Scribe. 

Overall, this was a fun enemies to lovers western romance, lots of fun characters in a rough setting. Honestly this wasn't my favorite read from this author, I thought that Malachi was pretty high handed, and though he did change over the course of the book it was hard to overlook some of the things that he had done that crossed the line for me. I also felt that it lacked the strong Christian faith woven throughout that I have come to expect from this author from reading books from her in the past, the characters went to church and prayed, but it just wasn't up to the level I have read in the past from this author. I know this review sounds harsh, but I really did enjoy the book with its full cast of characters, humor, and chemistry charged banter. Great for fans of enemies to lovers romance and westerns. 

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