Sisters of Mercy Flats by Lori Copeland - Review

By FTC regulations I must disclose that the following post contains advertisement for book and publisher.

The three wily and beautiful McDougal sisters can swindle a man faster than it takes to lasso a calf.
But their luck is running out, and they're about to be hauled off to jail. When the wagon carrying them falls under attack, each sister is picked up by a different man. Unfortunately for Abigail, she's grabbed by a twit of a shoe salesman, Mr. Hershall Digman.

 She steals his horse and rides off to the nearest town, not giving him another thought...until she discovers those secret papers in his saddlebags. Could Mr. Digman be a Confederate spy?
As if to prove it, the man who comes storming after her is no shoe salesman, but a handsome captain who wants his papers back...at any cost. And Abigail wants a ride back home. Together they embark on his mission, determined not to trust each other...or the God who won't seem to let them go.
My Thoughts:
If you are looking for a humorous, entertaining quick read, this is it.  It did not take long to read this fun story of the three McDougal sisters.  Scheming and conniving they finally meet their match.  The book is mainly about one of the sisters, Abigail, who is rescued by an odd man she is led to believe is a shoe salesman. But just as she is hiding behind a disguise, so is he! The book is full of adventure as they take turns getting in and out of scrapes together, each, on occasion taking the upper hand. Will they ever be able to work together?  Some of the happenings in this book are unbelievable! But at times I just enjoy reading a slightly unbelievable book for the sake of getting lost in the story and what could happen. Since Abigail grew up orphaned and fatherless and is strongly independent, it is difficult for her to learn to trust a heavenly Father and change her ways. Does she? Hershall struggles with rejection. Can he overcome his fears and trust a woman again? Guess you will have to read it to find out! I enjoyed this book and am hoping Lori is planning several sequels as my curiosity about the McDougal sisters has been peaked.  I am thankful to Harvest Publishers for sending me a copy of this book to review. All opinions are my own.
