The Trouble with Nancy Celebrate Lit Tour and Giveaway

My Thoughts

The Trouble with Nancy by author Chautona Havig is a Christian Historical Western novel.  I have never read anything except contemporary by this author, and this book is proof that she is more than capable of branching out into other genre.  She did a fantastic job with this tale.

This is the story of Nancy Harrison, a dreamy headed young woman whose family is struggling.  Her father recently died leaving her mother to pay taxes they cannot afford.  Nancy’s brother wants to help and trouble ensues.

Fiesty Nancy decides to join the Pony Express Riders and help her family.  This experience changes her tremendously.  She finds herself and God along the way.  It was a captivating tale and I was immediately invested.

Author Havig always puts an inspirational message in her books.  It isn’t hidden but in plain sight.  That is one of the things I love about her writing.  Her style is pleasant, down to earth, and easy to read.

This story had a few twists that made me want to keep reading it.  I learned a lot about the Pony Express.  Books that not only entertain me but also teach me things are my favorites along with the Christian message being clear.

This is a delightful story.  I found the characters totally engaging.  I wanted to offer advice to Nancy in certain parts and actually spoke out loud a few times.  It definitely gets my recommendation.  I give it a 4.5 out of 5 stars.  A copy was provided by Celebrate Lit but this is my honest opinion.

HAVIG_Nancy-smHer reputation precedes her, whether the bad guys realize it or not.

Nancy Harrison has finally stepped out of her prissy box and tried to do something helpful–but did she go overboard in her first self-less act?

She can’t ride, she hates horses, and she’s terrified of being alone. What’s a girl to do?

Join the Pony Express, of course.

When Nancy Harrison’s family receives a tax bill they can’t pay, there’s only one option open to them. Her brother, Lewis, will have to join the Pony Express and earn the money that way.

It would have worked, too, if ruffians hadn’t attacked him and broken his leg.

She doesn’t want to do it, of course, but what choice is there? Lose everything or ride a stupid, smelly horse for a few weeks? Nancy decides that she’ll chop off her hair, take to the dusty overland trail, and prove that she isn’t a “flighty little thing.”

But things go from bad to worse as she discovers that riding astride is worse than sidesaddle—especially when you’re not used to it.

Can’t she just go back home to balls, teas, and the hope of a suitor before her twentieth birthday? Sans her hair, of course, because that’ll entice the fellows. Sigh.
