Stealing Jake

This is my first review for NetGalley.  Though it's also for Tyndale and I have done reviews for them...but I digress.

Stealing Jake is a wonderfully written piece of Christian historical romance by Pam Hillman.  The story takes place in a rural town where Livy O'Brien has just relocated to from Chicago where her life was not that easy.  She is trying to start a new life and become a better person than she was.  She meets the town Deputy, Jake Russell, who has problems of his own and a past he wants to move on from as well.  The characters are well developed and this is not just written as a romance, there have been some robberies and some new street kids coming in from Chicago as well as the new orphanage in town.

I am not one for romance novels, as a rule I don't tend to like them.  But, as I said, this isn't just a romance.  Pam Hillman stayed true to the historical events of the Chicago area and developed characters, both main and secondary, that you truly cared about.

I highly recommend this novel.  You can find it on Amazon for Kindle.
