True Love

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

Book Review: The Accidental Lawman by Jill Marie Landis

BLURB: Not five minutes in a one-horse Texas town, and Hank Larson foils a bank robbery. No matter that one of the bandits tripped right over Hank's dusty boots. Suddenly, the newcomer is hailed a hero and anointed sheriff. Hank came to Glory to report crime in the newspaper—not stop it himself. But everyone thinks the Lord led him there to save the day. Everyone except the town's beautiful healer, Amelia Hawthorne. The robber who got away was her nineteen-year-old brother. And it's Hank's job to bring the guy in.

Hank knows all about losing family. And he slowly sets about restoring Amelia's shaky faith. But doing what's right might mean breaking her heart… and his own.

REVIEW: I have long been a fan of Jill Marie Landis and her writing and every time I pick up one of her novels it’s easy to see why. Jill is a master storyteller when you turn the pages you are immersed in the characters lives and the dramatic and romantic plots that she creates. In my humble opinion she is truly one of the best authors out there. And while she has been a name in the romance genre for years... and with this second book in her inspirational romance novels she has proven that she is just as adept in this genre as well.

Hank Larson is a man that is looking to start his life over. After picking the small community of Glory from a map he travels there hoping that starting up his newspaper there will be the realization of his dream and a much needed change. For Hank is a man who’s past has been filled with tragedy and heartache, and a change is very much what he needs. But little did he know that the “sleepy” little town of Glory would have much more in store for him that he ever imagined. He isn’t even unpacked yet and a trip to the bank lands him right in the middle of a robbery! Hank manages to subdue the robber and unwittingly is turned into the town hero and the towns people offer him (and some downright push) the title of sheriff on the new newspaperman. Even though Hank doesn’t want the position of Sheriff he agrees to stand in as one until a replacement can quickly be found.

And he also is blindsided by the proper and beautiful lady who was in the bank with him at the time of the robbery…

Miss Amelia Hawthorne is the town apothecary and unofficial town doctor. She’s also very strong in her faith in God. She is in all things proper but from the moment she lays eyes on the handsome new man in town her heart seems to have a mind of its own. Amelia has faced many trials in her life, as an assistant to her  Father on the battlefields during the civil war, the death of both her beloved parents, and many sicknesses and hard times as the head of her household, but God and her strong faith have seen her through them all.

But life and her faith are about to be tested as never before when she finds out that her little brother (whom see raised since the death of their mother) has fallen in with a very bad gang and just might have had a hand in the robbery!  Amelia prays that she can make her brother see the light before it’s too late, but has he already gone to far…

All the while circumstances seem to keep pulling Amelia and Hank together and both of them start to have feelings that neither of them thought they would ever have again…

Could God be pulling these two people together? Is Amelia the woman that can heal Hank’s shattered heart? Or will a series of tragic events push the two apart forever? And can Amelia who has always been grounded by her faith overcome her own heartbreak and doubt when her faith is tried more than ever before?

This is a wonderful and very thought provoking heartfelt story. The main characters and the trials that they face both together and on their own are riveting. Jill Marie Landis has made a cast of characters that tugs at the heartstrings and makes the heart soar with the Godly messages and faith weaving them all together. This is one series not to miss. And if you read her previous release Homecoming you will love seeing the main characters from that novel making a return in this one as secondary characters! If you love great historical romance you’ll love this one!

Completely clean just sweet kissing nothing heavy at all.
