All in Good Time, Gilded Legacy Series #2 -eBook
Forgiveness in Good Time
While this is a Christian Historical Romance, this story is more than that. It is about personal and spiritual growth, helping others, and ultimately forgiveness from multiple characters. I really enjoyed the characters and the story line. The setting and premise of Dessa (main character) starting a safe house at the time period of the story was unique. I really enjoyed this and am looking forward to reading more from this author.

All in Good Time - A book about Christian values.
This book is great because of the main character not going against her values even when she meets Turk Foster, which turns her head slightly, but not all the way. Henry is the second main character who Dessa eventually falls in love with. She has such a big influence on Henry that he doesn't believe in her at the beginning. He thinks she will fail and his money he invested in Pierson House is a total loss. But eventually Dessa wins the hearts of everyone around her. Maureen Lang is an Excellent romance writer.

I enjoyed this book; I can appreciate Dessa's commitment to the girls held against their will in brothels regardless of what it cost her. I can also understand her tendency to plough ahead without always considering the ramifications of what could happen. I admire someone who takes up a cause and is willing to do all in their power to fight for it and I think that is what Dessa did. It was also fun to watch Mr. Hawkins change as the book progressed and he learned to know Dessa better.

Great historical romantic suspense story
From the opening of this story with a stagecoach robbery to the fire burning the safe women's house near the end, this page turning historical novel was a real thriller you won't want to miss!!! What made the robbery so successful it was repeated 3 times? Dessa was desperate when she consulted Mr. Hawkins about providing the loan she needed to open a house for prostitutes to teach them a trade so they didn't have to use their bodies to survive. Wealthy Christian women were providing the funds to meet the mortgage. What forced Henry to give her the mortgage when he thought it unlikely she could make the monthly mortgage fee? Her house was strategically located at the edge of the bad neighborhood loaded with prostitutes. Why didn't the prostitutes rush to escape that life? Why did this scare Dessa? What were two things she did to attract them? What did the bank robber use to make Henry fill a bag with money? Who was Dessa's first person to move in? Why did Henry start to attend church? What did Turk Foster do that offended Henry? Why did Dessa decide not to participate in the benefit arranged by Turk Foster? Whom did Dessa decide to rescue that was extremely dangerous? How was it done? Where were they hidden? Why did Dessa want so much to rescue them? What happened that would destroy Pierson House? What three things did Henry do? If you love mysteries with some love and historical enrichment thrown in, you'll love this book like I did. Put it high on your must read list!!!
