A Lady Like Sarah by Margaret Brownley

This romance was a most satisfying offering, and was absolutely time well spent while reading. It has all the elements of romance without any fancy footwork of the author trying desparately to get the characters to "act" in a certain way. These are extremely well-developed characters, interesting, funny, believable with no contrivance. I said that twice, and I meant it.

While Sarah is just a little bit saucy, it isn't at all in a tiresome way. Just enough to keep it light, but not so much that you feel like she's annoying.

What a delightful plot, to put a young preacher (with a bit of history) with a woman outlaw (who's only real fault is being born into a family of brothers who want to teach Wells Fargo a lesson by stealing from the outfit.) The plot is only a little bit predictable in that you know the two will "git hitched", but how that comes about is what is so much fun. I do think the brothers came around rather abruptly, but all's well that ends well. This is a charming piece of Light Romance fiction. I highly recommend it!

A Lady Like Sarah
Thomas Nelson; Original edition (December 22, 2009)
Margaret Brownley

Sarah Prescott has never known a respectable life; just a hardscrabble childhood and brothers who taught her to shoot straight.

Justin Wells left Boston in disgrace, heading out alone on the dusty trail to Texas. But when the once-respected clergyman encounters a feisty redhead in handcuffs with a dying US Marshall at her side, their journey takes a dramatic turn.

His high society expectations and Sarah's outlaw habits clash from the start. With a price on her head and a sweet orphan in tow, Justin and Sarah make the difficult journey toward Rocky Creek. There justice will be meted out hopefully with a portion of grace.

Thrills, mystery, suspense, romance: Margaret penned it all. Nothing wrong with this, except Margaret happened to be writing for the church newsletter. After making the church picnic read like a Grisham novel, her former pastor took her aside and said, "Maybe God's calling you to write fiction."

It turns out God was and Margaret did. She now has more than 20 novels to her credit. In addition, she's written many Christian articles and a non-fiction book. Still, it took a lot of prodding from God before Margaret tried her hand at writing inspirational fiction which led to her Rocky Creek series. "I love writing about characters at different stages of faith," she says of the new direction her writing career has taken, "and I'm here to stay."

Happily married to her real-life hero, Margaret and her husband live in Southern California.
