    I feel like squealing about this one, honestly! I'm so happy to see my dear friend Patience's book ready to launch out into the world. I got to hear about all the scenes as they were being written and then got to be a first reader. One of the most delightful feelings when your friend is a writer is expecting the book to be good and then being blown away by how excellent it really is. There's a poetic life to many of the descriptions, which are vivid without becoming pedantic. There are bad guys I feel like squealing about this one, honestly! I'm so happy to see my dear friend Patience's book ready to launch out into the world. I got to hear about all the scenes as they were being written and then got to be a first reader. One of the most delightful feelings when your friend is a writer is expecting the book to be good and then being blown away by how excellent it really is. There's a poetic life to many of the descriptions, which are vivid without becoming pedantic. There are bad guys worthy of the best sort of John Wayne movie. There are circumstances playing against the MCs that are quite obviously not going to end well. And there are some of the most real, lifelike characters that have crossed a book's page in a long while! Marion will grab your heart from the beginning as she longs to find a better future for herself. Tragedy robbed her of her family too young, and she is alone in the world. Despite having to support herself at a young age, she didn't give up on dreaming of a better future. She simply had no idea her dream was going to turn out the way it does when she embarks to find it! What if she has to give it up for something else—better or worse? Anyway, I'll stop now before blabbing any good spoilers. :) Suffice it to say that this story will keep you on the edge of your seat as a strong young woman encounters the Old West with results she never dreamed of and dangers at every turn.

Breathtaking descriptions and vivid characters leave the reader This is the debut novel of an author with the potential to go places. God has truly gifted this author with an astounding gift for description and crafting sentences, and I can see Him publishing many more excellent books through her! Midnight Justice is a gripping page-turner that weaves together themes of love, forgiveness, justice, revenge, and redemption in a riveting and sweet story of drama and adventure in a Western setting. Breathtaking descriptions and vivid characters leave the reader sympathizing, sighing, and rejoicing by turns as the author leads step by step on a journey of destiny. This book. What an adventure. If you love books that make you feel you’re there, that let you get to know the characters personally, that keep you turning page after page in an epic-length work, that combine poetic description with dramatic plot, Midnight Justice is your book. Characters: Carson and Marion were so easy and delightful to get to know – not to mention Sylvie and, of course, Dottie. 🙂 Everyone was developed well for the role they played in the story. Even with a large cast of characters, the vivid descriptions made each one stand out in a memorable way. The dialogue flowed well and lent certain characters a distinct personality and manner. I loved Marion’s sweet, pure dreams and hopes and goals and the way she kept encouraging those around her no matter what. I loved her loyalty and sweet determination. She was so pure and good, yet she wasn’t “perfect” – she was a rock, yet she wasn’t unshakable. She faced hardships like a human with tears and struggles, yet she kept her eyes fixed on Christ. She was determined to stick with her beloved, yet she was gentle and honoring of others as well. She loved with all her heart and never wavered from her principles of what’s right. Characters truly make the story, and Marion is the best kind of protagonist. Plot: There’s not a lot I can say without giving spoilers, but it’s satisfying. There are twists that might catch you by surprise. The characters’ journeys are woven together beautifully. In some places, I was on the edge of my seat. In others, I was smiling and nodding. In yet others, I was chuckling. This plot has it all. Pace: I loved how the first part of the book shifted quite regularly between Carson and Marion each chapter. While one might find the beginning a bit slow, it was a good setup for the rest of the story. With the length of the book, the variations in pacing seemed exellent. I felt carried along with the story. I love the word pictures the author weaves – I can see each scene. In many books filled with journeys and travels, one of three things tends to happen: (1) too many time skips; (2) too much boring description (“they traveled all morning. They stopped for lunch. They traveled all afternoon. They stopped when the sun touched the horizon…” etc.); or (3) drama happening along the way that feels like it was added simply to avoid the second option. Midnight Justice had none of these. Despite the lack of time skips in mot instances, when larger period of time occurred in which nothing of note happened, the author somehow made it sound interesting while transitioning smoothly to the next important scene. Content review: some violence, romance. There are a few kisses, most of them between married couples. I found the romance sweet, innocent, pure, and lovely, worded in a discrete way. There’s not too much physical description or dwelling on it. This book handles that aspect better than most, in my opinion. All in all, this is a beautiful story of love, justice, rightness, and forgiveness! It’s so sweet and pure, yet dramatic and complex. Such a variety of characters have all been interwoven into a lovely book. I love how the focus of the story is kept and the characters’ goals are clear. I love the redemption messages – so different and yet so similar, and the beautiful, faithful hand of God preeminent throughout. The descriptions and the way the author puts words together is riveting. The story definitely left me with something to take away. I highly recommend this book, especially if you’re an adult or young adult who loves Westerns, adventure, beautiful description, or a good story. Five of five stars.

    *thumbs up* beta-ed it a while ago. Enjoyed the story and the characters. The settings were a bit over-done for me I think, but I recommend this book for ages 18 and up for sure. :D

    Well, that was definitely a ride! This book was very much in the style of an old western (or at least it reminded me a lot of the old western movies and TV shows I've seen). The setting absolutely popped off the page, and I felt like I could pretty much see the whole thing--probably partially thanks to those western TV shows--but a lot of books don't succeed in doing that for me, no matter how familiar I am with the setting, so that's a real compliment. Both Marion and Carson pulled hard at my hea Well, that was definitely a ride! This book was very much in the style of an old western (or at least it reminded me a lot of the old western movies and TV shows I've seen). The setting absolutely popped off the page, and I felt like I could pretty much see the whole thing--probably partially thanks to those western TV shows--but a lot of books don't succeed in doing that for me, no matter how familiar I am with the setting, so that's a real compliment. Both Marion and Carson pulled hard at my heartstrings, although in different ways. Marion's almost childish innocence in some things worried me a bit at times, but it made sense with her backstory, and I appreciated her hardworking attitude, her deep faith, and her tenacious loyalty. Carson was different--he had obviously seen and done a lot that he shouldn't--but it was easy to tell that his conscience was still working underneath the rough layers, and I just about held my breath wanting to know how his story was going to play out. I really appreciated several aspects of the timing of their relationship, even if the age gap did raise my eyebrows a little at first. (view spoiler)[Also, Sylvie--wow! I didn't think twice about her when I first met her, but later, I absolutely loved the depth of character she showed. And her dry humor, of course. ;) (hide spoiler)] The plot went from interesting to white-knuckled intense very fast and had me glued to the pages more and more the closer I got to the end. (view spoiler)[And I'm not sure how, but the author actually had me convinced that a certain event might really happen and end the story in a totally different way than I expected. Not saying whether it did or didn't end up happening, but for someone who usually blows that kind of possibility off, this in itself is quite an accomplishment. Also, yes, I know that's not a very spoilery spoiler, but some people might know me well enough to be able to guess from the above what actually happened, so I'm hiding it here. XD (hide spoiler)] And I appreciated how realistic some of the consequences were, although a big part of me would have happily gone along with Marion's overly optimistic views. :) I did feel like some of the word choices and sentence constructions got a little awkward at times--or if not awkward, unusual enough that they didn't quite flow in my mind. That said, the author definitely has a gift for writing deeply immersive settings and strong redemptive messages that don't feel at all contrived or forced. I really loved and appreciated all the messages portrayed here, along with the way they were portrayed, which is something I can't always say! Content--drinking (including drunkenness), smoking, and gambling; numerous references to swearing (no words); mentions of saloon girls in revealing costumes and veiled references to their work; mentions of lingerie and a woman in undergarments (only women present); violence, including gunplay; deaths, including discussions of murders; blood and wounds; an unmarried couple spend nights alone on the trail but conduct themselves honorably; kissing, touching, and holding (not overly descriptive); a couple fall asleep sitting against each other in a rainstorm

    Review: I loved Midnight Justice. Absolutely beautiful writing- I can see why others liked it a lot. I’m not into historical fiction, especially ones that include cowboys and ranches, but this was amazing and I LOVED IT SO MUCH- I was also super impressed by how well Patience writes! Her writing style is really descriptive (but not too descriptive- there’s a perfect balance). She shows instead of tells, which I found very refreshing.

Her writing style is really descriptive (but not too descriptive- there’s a perfect balance). She shows instead of tells, which I found very refreshing. I also loved the Christian content in it. 😀 The characters are beautifully written. Each character has its own distinct personality, so I was able to tell them apart easily without memorizing their names. xD I’ll miss reading about them. 😦 The romance was done incredibly well and just… wow. ❤ Words cannot express how I feel about this romance. xD And in the middle the feels CAME OUT OF NOWHERE and wow Carson + Marion ahhhhhh my life is complete now. ❤ ❤ ❤ I definitely think that if you like historical fiction set on ranches and farms with cowboys here and there, you would LOVE this one. Not to mention the cover + interior designing is gorgeous! Sarah Grace and Victoria Lynn did an absolutely brilliant job in capturing the feel of Midnight Justice. 😀 What I Didn't Love: - I wish I could understand why the main characters feel an attraction. xD I know that’s a weird thing to say when I said earlier that the romance was done well, but… still. It’s not exactly obvious. - The plot, while structured nicely, was very predictable. Content: - mentions of being drunk - sentences like “a swear word tainted the silence” or “a swear word came from his mouth”, but swearing is set in a bad light. which is good! - this is a novel with romance as a big theme, so there are mentions of noticing a girl and kissing. Nothing is overly described though, and I was definitely comfortable with it. 🙂 Conclusion: I loved this debut novel by Patience! It’s engaging and well-written (plus a good dash of romance!)- what more could you want in a book? 😀 4.5 stars, rounded up to 5. Recommended to mature 11 year olds+ because of some semi-detailed romance. *FTC DISCLOSURE: I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for a review. All thoughts are my own and a positive review was not required.* Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂 Like my reviews? Read more here.
