Sisters of Mercy Flats by Lori Copeland

book title front  This is a rollicking romantic adventure, set during the Civil War!  When three con artists, who happen to be sisters, are attacked on their way to jail, they're each rescued by a different man.  Abigail ends up with a shoe salesman, Hershall Digman, an inept man she can't wait to be rid of.  However, after stealing his horse and discovering papers he was carrying, she wonders if he could truly be a Confederate spy.  When he shows up, she's determined to make him take her home in exchange for the papers, but everything keeps going wrong.  Can a con artist mend her ways and a Rebel open his heart to love?

Abigail was a fun and feisty character, but what a handful!  I really liked them both and it was entertaining to see what catastrophe would happen next.  The banter was amusing, though sometimes a phrase didn't fit the context, which was distracting and confusing.  The faith elements were more general, mentioning belief in God, and the characters' struggles didn't feel very fleshed out either.  I'm guessing there will be a couple more books in the series, one for each of the other sisters, or at least I hope so because this was a fun romance and I want to find out what crazy things happen to the other sisters!

I received this book free from Harvest House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
