Bonus Story of Honor Bond by Colleen L. Reece
This delightful historical fiction book includes two stories for readers enjoyment. The first story is Desert Moon, which is about a Julia Newman, a young lady who returns to Arizona after her mothers death to find her beloved brother accused of robbing a stagecoach by the very man she has always loved, Deputy Adam Scott. The second story is Honor Bound. This story is about a nave young lady named Honor who travels to the Grand Canyon with the family she works with as a nanny and falls in love with Philip, who is not all that he seems.
Both stories are very well written and include some nuggets of historical fact that enhance the tales and engage the reader. In Desert Moon, Julia is returning home on the stage coach after she hears about her mothers passing. She had left to go to school and become a teacher because she couldnt bear to be in the same town as the Deputy when she was in love with him, but couldnt marry him. When the very stage coach that she is riding in is robbed, she is enraged that Deputy Adam Scott would accuse her brother of the deed. As she struggles to convince Adam of the truth and find her brother, who has gone missing, she realizes that her feelings for Adam have not decreased over time at all. Will she clear her brothers name? Will they discover who robbed the stage coach? Will she find love at last? All of this and more are answered in this engaging story.
In Honor Bound, Honor is happy to travel to the Grand Canyon with her employers. They treat her fairly and allow her time to explore when she is not working. She meets Philip, a man she had known many years before and they fall in love. However, Philip is from a different world than the one Honor grew up in. While she works hard and has to strive to support herself, he comes from a wealthy family and is rather spoiled. Honor convinces herself that they can make things work though. She agrees to meet with him at his home. When she arrives there, he says that he cant remember anything about her or their time together. As they get to know each other again, she finds him different in his own home. When he asks her to marry him in a hurry, she is unsure why but completely willing. During this entire period, Honor is struggling with her inner conscious about what is right and wrong and whether or not she should follow the teachings of her youth or go her own way. The story is a very sweet tale of a young girl who discovers not only love, but faith to sustain her through life.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes historical fiction. Both stories are interesting, fun, and enjoyable. I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley for my honest opinion.

ReginaF5 Stars Out Of 5Keeps you guessing!January 10, 2017ReginaFQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Desert Moon which was originally named Almost Arizona is a story that is intriguing, full of adventure, mystery, and it keeps you guessing.
Julia has been away from hometown for two years, she returns because her mother passed away. The action begins before she before she even enters town. When they finally arrive, her former fiance, deputy sheriff Adam Scott is there to take charge of the situation.
Julia and Adam lock horns immediately! Adam is determined he has his culprit and focuses only on that person. But as the story and plot thickens and the puzzle pieces fall together he realizes he was in the wrong. Instead of locking horns, Julia and Adam start realizing their feelings from the past are still there but have matured. A romance blossoms between them.
Adam eventually discovers the truth of who did the robbery and it isn't who he expected. The truth really creates a stir within him.
This story is a powerful one, full of misconceptions, mistaken identities, finding oneself in Christ, and forgiveness.
The Bonus Story from Honor Bond by Colleen L. Reece
This story is about Honor Brooks. Honor is a nanny to an adorable six-year-old girl. She lost her only sibling in France on the day of Armistice. She is grief-stricken over his loss. Due to her employer wife's health it is decided that they visit the Grand Canyon in Arizona. While there Honor is literally swept off her feet by Phillip Travis, a fellow she met in San Francisco two years before. A swift courtship and engagement ensue, then Phillip leaves for his ranch - Honor will follow later.
Honor comes to the ranch and things happen! One things leads to another.... This is where the story really gets good! I am not saying one word about this. You have to read the book!
