Sisters of Mercy Flats - A Review
Abigail McDougal and her sisters are beautiful thieves. Yet at some point, even the best of thieves get caught. On their way to jail, a Comanche raiding party attacks their wagon. Three different men come to their rescue, and each departs with one of the sisters. Hershell Digman, shoe salesman, is on his way to Shreveport when he rescues Abigail from the Indians. He's hiding something as well. Could he be a spy? As the pair continue to Shreveport with vital information for the Confederate Army, they fight an attraction to each other. Will they make it in time? And will they both admit how they feel?
It's been a while since I picked up a Lori Copeland book. Light-hearted, this book kept me entertained from the first page through the last. This book is Abigail's story. I'm hoping that there will also be books about her sisters as well. Both Abigail and Hershell have issues in their lives to resolve before they can move on. While they aren't as developed as some of the other characters in the author's other books, they were believable.
I received the Kindle version of the book for free from Harvest House Publishers via Netgalley for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.

Rating - 3 stars - because I really felt blah about the book.
