Rebecca Reviews ~ Holding the Fort by Regina Jennings

 Published December 5th 2017

When dance hall singer Louisa Bell visits Fort Reno to see her brother, she is mistaken for the governess that the harried Major Daniel Adams is waiting for. Between his rowdy troops and his two daughters, he has more responsibility than he can handle alone. Eager for the opportunity, Louisa sets out to show the widower that she is a perfect fit.

Rebecca's Review
4 STARS!!!

"I am Lovely Lola Bell. He will be enchanted with my performance and will love my show." . . . . . .

Except that Louisa Bell has landed the job of a governess, albeit by mistake, for Major Daniel Adams' precocious girls on remote Fort Reno in Indian Territory. Escaping her life as a dance hall singer after being replaced by a younger, more promiscuous talent; Louisa heads towards her unruly brother's last known residence as a cavalry soldier. She never expected her ruse to last more than a few days, especially following her unbelievable introduction to the handsome fort commander.

Major Daniel Adams was expecting a more severe rendition of a governess than Miss Louisa Bell. How can he possibly endure the lovely creature that is stumbling through his girls' lessons, privately rendezvousing with one of his most annoying soldiers, and appearing in his dreams as an angel in blue satin? She is hiding something, he is sure of it.

Join Regina Jennings as she expertly captures your sympathy, empathy and undivided attention while Louisa and Daniel march their way towards the future with more than one unexpected, and often comedic, turnabout. Checkmate!

With nearly 28 years of experience in her field, she has had many opportunities to use her love of reading and writing in creative ways across the generations. A wife, mother of four "nearly" grown children, and grandmother to four beautiful grandchildren, Rebecca has been able to return to her love of reading and more recently reviewing, with a renewed passion for the "beauty of story".
