Review: Jodi's Journey by Rita Hestand

Jodi’s Journey by Rita Hestand

Publisher: Whimsical Publications
Genre: Historical Romance

Heat Rating: 1



The war was over. The town of Esser Crossing ebbed closer to a slow death while Jodi Parker and  Hunter Johnson fought desperately with one last chance to save it, and themselves.

Two unlikely people came together against their own will and struggled to carve a new empire. Swollen
rivers and Jayhawkers were the least of their troubles on a cattle drive to Kansas, when both carried
secrets that could easily destroy them. He had to prove himself, she had to live with her own decisions.

A cruel destiny threw them together. Only a true and lasting love could save them…

Ashira Datya’s Review

I'm not exactly sure what it was about the summary of Jodi's Journey that caught my eye, but I'm glad it did.
In the aftermath of the Civil War, Jodi has to deal with a lot; her father and brother haven't returned from the war and the man that usually helps to get the cattle sold has suffered a terrible injury, making it impossible for him to do his duty. He urges Jodi to go to Hunter Johnson, a “coward” according to the good people of the South for help. Hunter agrees to help Jodi … but he adds a stipulation that leaves Jodi stunned.

Together, Hunter and Jodi round up as many people as they can to help get the cattle to market to sell, and come across some that mean them harm, including the Klan and some that are just plain old stupid. Jodi and Hunter have to learn to trust each other, theirs and others lives depend on it. The ride isn't a smooth one and the journey is treacherous and fraught with danger.

I really enjoyed Jodi's Journey. It was a very sweet story, showing how people can move past their reputations and start over when the chips are down. I give Jodi's Journey three Tea Cups and a heat rating of a one. I really recommend this story to anyone who wants to read a good, sweet story.

3 Tea Cups!
