THE LIEUTENANT'S BARGAIN by Regina Jennings, Reviewed by Winnie Thomas

I always know I’m in for a treat when I pick up a book by Regina Jennings, and The Lieutenant’s Bargain is definitely a treat. The author’s distinctive, sparkling sense of humor permeates this tale and makes it a delight to read. Although this story can stand alone, it’s the second book in The Fort Reno series, and includes many of the characters in the first book, Holding the Fort. It was fun to revisit some of them and see what they’ve been up to. 

Jennings’ precise historical detail shines in this story set in 1885 in Indian Territory, and the characters are vividly drawn and endearing. Jack and Hattie had me chuckling and giggling out loud with their delightful banter and miscommunications. They are, without a doubt, two of my favorite Jennings characters. For a brilliantly funny tale packed with adventure, charm, and romance, with an added dash of faith, grab this book. It’s one for the keeper shelf!

BackCover Blurb:
 Hattie Walker dreams of becoming a painter, while her parents want her to settle down. As a compromise, they give her two months to head to Denver and place her works in an exhibition or give up the dream forever. Her journey is derailed when a gunman attacks her stagecoach, leaving her to be rescued by a group of Arapaho . . . but she's too terrified to recognize them as friendly.

Confirmed bachelor Lieutenant Jack Hennessey has long worked with the tribe and is tasked with trying to convince them that the mission school at Fort Reno can help their children. When a message arrives about a recovered survivor, Jack heads out to take her home--and plead his case once more.

He's stunned to run into Hattie Walker, the girl who shattered his heart--but quickly realizes he has a chance to impress her. When his plan gets tangled through translation, Jack and Hattie end up in a mess that puts her dreams in peril--and tests Jack's resolve to remain single.
