Journey to Riverbend by Henry McLaughlin
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers. The idea was interesting, but I didn't not particularly enjoy it. This is a Christian romance western. When Ben Carstairs is hung for a crime he did not commit, Michael Archer agrees to contact Ben's father and try and reconcile the two. When Michael arrives in town Sam Carstairs is away on business. Sam never makes it back. The town puts together a posse to try and find and save Sam. Michael goes along. There is also a romance between Michael and Rachel. Rachel feels like she can never have a healthy normal relationship because of her past, but she finds out that Michael has a past as well. The book was very readable. I did enjoy reading it, but there were a lot of plot holes that I had a hard time with. I would give it a 3 out of 5.
