Publisher's Summary

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.

Found Treasure

I wholeheartedly loved this book! I was drawn into the story from the first moment I pressed play. It had me on the edge of my seat from the drama then giggling from a few misunderstandings and surprises.
Of all the things that could have happened, Lieutenant Jack never expected to find a woman needing to be rescued. There is a funny line Hattie says to herself about being saved by the Indians and held captive by the Calvary. I loved seeing her connect with the children and how her heart changed as time went on.
This is a wonderful drama with bits of Regina Jennings trademark humor infused throughout. A message of faith and trusting God is gently woven around the natural scenes. Teaching the young Indian children and their parents the Christmas story through a school program was brilliant.
There are too many fun moments for me to mention. I loved seeing characters from the first book included here but I think this story stands on its own.
I highly recommend this book. I spent the entire day and most of the night listening. Only pausing for a few important business matters.

Love this story.

The narrator does a great job bringing this story to life.
I have read several Jennings books and this series is by far my favorite. The series has a nice balance of being light hearted and yet the Christian message is thought provoking. It is sprinkled with humor to keep you smiling/laughing as you listen and characters that are relatable that you can’t help but to cheer on.
I read/listen to a lot of stories and the Fort Reno series are some of my all time favorite.

Very enjoyable.

I definitely enjoyed this novel from beginning to happy end, even chuckling during some of it. The characters are three-dimensional and so wonderfully realistic.
