Stephanie Grace Whitson's A Most Unsuitable Match. Now, I know this isn't a Love Inspired Historical (which I'm quickly discovering are a completely different kind of book compared to simply Love Inspired) but I do expect the hero and heroine of a historical romance to meet somewhere in at the first five or six chapters.
It was very hard for me to get into this book despite my liking both main characters. There was just so much back-story at the beginning. The book was about Fannie Rousseau and Samuel Beck meeting on a steamboat headed from Saint Louis to Montana--both searching for answers. The plot was good, the characters were good, and the end was good. But when I was finished I was left wanting. There were no sparks in this book--no depth to the relationship between the two main characters who were supposedly desperately in love with one another.
It's just another "written-well-enough" book which could have been better with just a little more work.
I received this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review on my blog.I give this book 3 STARS.
