    Sometimes it is good to just kick back, relax, and indulge in a fun, light, tickle-me-pink story that still holds a good, clear message of the goodness of God and His forgiveness. Holding the Fort is just such a book. Typically I don't care for wild west stories that involve dance h...

    Aw, this was such a fun read! The story is lighthearted and very well researched. It was easy to like Louisa and to root for her and Major Adams to fall for each other. The two girls, Caroline and Daisy, are enjoyable youngsters as well. I have to say, that introduction between Loui...

    Holding the Fort by Regina Jennings was such a fun book to read. I can't even say how much I enjoyed it. When you think about a dance hall singer posing as a Mennonite Governess, it would have to be hilarious. Louisa gets herself in more situations than you'd think possible with Major ...

    Age Appropriate For: 15 and up Best for Ages: 15 and up I discovered Regina Jennings this year in reading Caught In The Middle. That book really impressed me. The next book I read by her, her very first book, wasn?t my favorite. Sixty Acers and a Bride had some wonderful elements...

    Holding the Fort was a thoroughly delightful book! The story contained a nice balance of humor, serious dialogue, and questions of faith. I enjoyed the characters in this story, both the primary and secondary ones. Louisa was a likable character, even as she tried to uphold the ruse...

    3.5 stars While Holding the Fort wasn't my favorite book by Regina Jennings, I must admit it was a pretty adorable story. The first book in a new series, THE FORT RENO SERIES, it was engaging, fun, and easy to read. I ended up liking all the prominent characters: Louisa Bell, the da...

    . Wow - what a gorgeous cover!! In between the gorgeous covers of this book lies an equally gorgeous story, one that will draw you in from the very first page. This book has some beautiful characters. Major Daniel Adams is one of the kindest, most gentlemanly heroes I've seen. ...

    Regina?s novels always have such fun characters and a sense of humor that is delightful. This one has that, but so much more. There?s a heroine who?s trapped between her past, and what she hopes her future will be. A hero who wants to be more than he is and who is tied to a forma...

    'What did God think of her sitting in this chapel, pretending to be holy? He knew the truth. He knew she was no friend of His.' Louisa Bell, aka Lola Bell, sings in a bawdy house, even though she's never done anything but sing, but still she's treated like trash by everyone. She los...

    As soon as I turned the cover of this book the author had me walking in Louisa Bell?s shoes, and loving this girl. A big heart filled with compassion, and when she becomes homeless decides to go to her brother who is in the brig in Fort Reno. Be ready for a few chuckles and wonder h...

    What a hoot! This book is well written and a lot of fun to read. Louisa Bell comes from questionable beginnings. She feels that she can not make much of herself because of others decisions that affected her life. She doubts God and she doubts herself. A fortunate circumstance fell i...

    Holding the Fort was such a joy to read. I cannot think of another book that had me giggling out loud as much as this one did in quite some time. It takes a special story to really be able to infuse humor into a romance during a time in history that was very stressful and could be dead...

    The first in a series about Fort Reno. Louisa is a dance hall singer who loses her job and has no place to go except the fort where her brother is stationed. He is in trouble as usual and she wants to help. She is mistaken as the governess that the commanding officer was waiting for. S...

    When you are in the mood for a trip to the old west, life in a fort, and a sweet story about faith, love and forgiveness then this should be one of the books you pick up to indulge that feeling. While this book is labeled as western Christian romance, it is not heavy on the religiou...

    It is amazing how much I still learn about the West while reading fiction after all these years.  Regina Jennings packed so much history into Holding the Fort, written about the actual military fort, Fort Reno.  It is clear she did a lot of research for this book, and yet not a minut...

    With fun loving characters, laugh out loud moments, and a whole lot of heart, "Holding the Fort" is another winning novel from Regina Jennings. Louisa is a zany, likeable young lady who will surely win your heart within a few pages of becoming acquainted with her. Her desire to look ou...

    I really enjoyed the story (though I had some small initial hesitation, even having loved the author's previous works--nothing good ever comes from lying about who you are). But it's delightfully funny, it's sweetly romantic, and it's a marvelous example of grace--everything I've come ...

    Sometimes it is good to just kick back, relax, and indulge in a fun, light, tickle-me-pink story that still holds a good, clear message of the goodness of God and His forgiveness. Holding the Fort is just such a book. Typically I don't care for wild west stories that involve dance h...
