My Heart Stood Still is an inspirational romance by Lori Copeland. Although I typically enjoy this genre and don't really care that the books are light, easy reads, I can't say that I really enjoyed this one.
From the book's description:
The three wily and beautiful McDougal sisters can swindle a man faster than it takes to lasso a calf. But their luck is running out, and they’re about to be hauled off to jail. When the wagon carrying them falls under attack, each sister is picked up by a different man.Anne-Marie, the middle sister, is saved by Creed Walker, a Crow warrior. It’s loathing at first sight, but with bandits on their tail and a cache of gold to hide, Creed and Anne-Marie need each other. Will they learn to put aside their differences and trust each other—and God? And can their growing faith turn their lives around?
The story was rather choppy. I felt as if we went from event to event with not much character development in between. The happenings were rather unrealistic, and, although it's fiction, I want it to be mostly believable.
This is one of a series that apparently tells the story of each of the sisters in the book. I haven't read the others in the series and don't really know if they are interrelated. But, I don't think I'll be looking for the others.
I give this one 3 stars and a G for content.
