The Trouble with Nancy by Chautona Havig


About the Book


Book: The Trouble with Nancy
Author: Chautona Havig
Genre: Christian Historical Romance, Western
Release Date: July 18, 2019

Her reputation precedes her, whether the bad guys realize it or not.
Nancy Harrison has finally stepped out of her prissy box and tried to do something helpful–but did she go overboard in her first self-less act?

She can’t ride, she hates horses, and she’s terrified of being alone. What’s a girl to do?

Join the Pony Express, of course.

When Nancy Harrison’s family receives a tax bill they can’t pay, there’s only one option open to them. Her brother, Lewis, will have to join the Pony Express and earn the money that way.

It would have worked, too, if ruffians hadn’t attacked him and broken his leg.

She doesn’t want to do it, of course, but what choice is there? Lose everything or ride a stupid, smelly horse for a few weeks? Nancy decides that she’ll chop off her hair, take to the dusty overland trail, and prove that she isn’t a “flighty little thing.”

But things go from bad to worse as she discovers that riding astride is worse than sidesaddle—especially when you’re not used to it.

Can’t she just go back home to balls, teas, and the hope of a suitor before her twentieth birthday? Sans her hair, of course, because that’ll entice the fellows. Sigh.

My Review

I always enjoy a book by Chautona, and I have thoroughly enjoyed all the different authors that have taken part in this series so far! I really loved Nancy, and really wanted to be friends with her, though I can't say I am quite as impulsive and daring as Nancy- which is why I think we would make good friends. lol I really enjoyed the historical dig into the history, dangers, and reality of those taking part in the pony express. I enjoyed the really sweet and unexpected romance as well. Chautona's signature style still shone too through which is why I really enjoy this author so much regardless of the genre. I felt like the plot was really steady paced, exciting, and had plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing. I highly recommend this book for those looking for an excellent Christian fiction or historical fiction, and also recommend the entire series for the same readers.


I received a complimentary copy of this book, and all opinions given are entirely my own. 




About the Author


Chautona Havig lives in an oxymoron, escapes into imaginary worlds that look startlingly similar to ours and writes the stories that emerge. An irrepressible optimist, Chautona sees everything through a kaleidoscope of It’s a Wonderful Life sprinkled with fairy tales. Find her on the web and say howdy—if you can remember how to spell her name.
