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.
