My Heart Stood Still by Lori Copeland
Publisher: Harvest House
Series: Sisters of Mercy Flats(Book 2)
Goodreads Summary: “The Sisters of Mercy Flats”, begun in Promise Me Today, continues in this wonderful new Western-flavored historical romance. The McDougal sisters are experts at swindling men, and this time Anne-Marie enters into a bargain bordering on blackmail–with a Crow warrior.
Book two opens with the 3 sisters being saved by 3 different men once again. This time Anne-Marie’s saved by an Indian. All she wants is to find her sisters and all he wants is to finish his mission. Oil and water do not play well together. Creed needs to finish his orders and having a woman tagging along does not help. The more he is with her the more he starts to care yet he’s been promised to another many years ago. Can he keep his word or will he follow his heart?
What I liked: Anne-Marie finds herself saved by an Indian who she soon finds out is more complicated than he first let on. She just wants to get back to her sisters but finds herself stuck tagging along with Creed and his sidekick. I really enjoyed how Anne-Marie and Creed interacted. The plot of this book was good. I enjoyed the suspense of how they were going to get out of the tribes camp without being noticed. I found that Anne-Marie was not wanting to listen to Creed and doing her own thing which, of course, got her in trouble is a lot like us when we don’t listen to God. We find our self in trouble and remorseful and just when we think we are out of options God will help us find our way. This may not be without consequences, but he never leaves us.
What I didn’t like: I really can’t find much to not like about this book.
Overall this was an enjoyable book. The characters were well-developed. I though the humor was well threaded into the book. I have enjoyed the series so far and look forward to the last book. Even though this is a series book it can easily be read as a stand alone.
