Review: Holding the Fort (Fort Reno #1) by Regina Jennings

Blurb (from Amazon):

Jennings Winningly Combines Humor, History, and Romance

Louisa Bell never wanted to be a dance-hall singer, but dire circumstances force her hand. With a little help from her brother in the cavalry, she's able to make ends meet, but lately he's run afoul of his commanding officer, so she undertakes a visit to straighten him out.

Major Daniel Adams has his hands full at Fort Reno. He can barely control his rowdy troops, much less his two adolescent daughters. If Daniel doesn't find someone respectable to guide his children, his mother-in-law insists she'll take them.

When Louisa arrives with some reading materials, she's mistaken for the governess who never appeared. Major Adams is skeptical. She bears little resemblance to his idea of a governess--they're not supposed to be so blamed pretty--but he's left without recourse. His mother-in-law must be satisfied, which leaves him turning a blind eye to his unconventional governess's methods. Louisa's never faced so important a performance. Can she keep her act together long enough?

My Review: 

Holding the Fort is the beginning of a fun new series by Regina Jennings called Fort Reno. I have loved all of her stories and I believe this one is my new favorite. It is full of laugh out loud entertainment, adventure and good ol' clean romance. Louisa and Daniel are the best characters, especially, when they are in the same scene.

If the rest of the series is this good, then I am looking forward to the next installment. I loved this story! Such a great read!

Highly recommended.

100 stars.

I received this book from the author, but was not required to write a review. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
