Aw, this was such a fun read! The story is lighthearted and very well researched. It was easy to like Louisa and to root for her and Major Adams to fall for each other. The two girls, Caroline and Daisy, are enjoyable youngsters as well.

Holding the Fort by Regina Jennings was such a fun book to read. I can't even say how much I enjoyed it. When you think about a dance hall singer posing as a Mennonite Governess, it would have to be hilarious. Louisa gets herself in more situations than you'd think possible with Major Daniel Adam...

Louisa Bell, aka Lola Bell, sings in a bawdy house, even though she's never done anything but sing, but still she's treated like trash by everyone. She loses her job at t...

As soon as I turned the cover of this book the author had me walking in Louisa Bell’s shoes, and loving this girl. A big heart filled with compassion, and when she becomes homeless decides to go to her brother who is in the brig in Fort Reno.
Be ready for a few chuckles and wonder how she does wha...

Holding the Fort was such a joy to read. I cannot think of another book that had me giggling out loud as much as this one did in quite some time. It takes a special story to really be able to infuse humor into a romance during a time in history that was very stressful and could be deadly. I like...
