Jane: A Fierce Heart (Harvey Girls Book 3) 

Amazon quote:

Jane is determined to make the world a better place even when everything seems so bleak in this clean and wholesome historical western romance story.

Independent, red-haired Jane Harris is twenty years old in 1917 when war breaks out and changes her life. In her hometown of Beaumont, Virginia, she does her best to be a good sister, a good daughter, and to volunteer however she can for the war effort.
But it’s not enough. Her brothers, many of her friends, and the man she loves are gone to France, and Jane needs to do more than knit socks for them. She needs to be busy. She needs to leave home. Luckily, her mother understands, and soon Jane is interviewing to be a Harvey Girl.

The job comes with challenges she has never before experienced. Far away from home, she must stand against her adversaries, and sometimes against her friends. She will have to work hard to achieve things that come easily to those around her, but luckily she will learn that character triumphs over talent, especially when times are hard.

I’m currently reading:

Flight Risk

Savannah Daniels has worked hard to build her law practice, to surround herself with good friends, and to be the loyal aunt her troubled niece can always count on. But since her ex-husband’s betrayal, she has trouble trusting anyone.

Jett Glover’s father committed suicide over a false newspaper report that ruined his reputation. Now a fierce champion of truth, Jett is writing the story of his journalism career—an international sex-trafficking exposé that will bring down a celebrity baseball player and the men closest to him, including Savannah’s ex-husband.

When Jett’s story breaks, tragedy ensues. Then a commercial airline crashes, and one of Savannah’s clients is implicated in the crash. Men connected to the scandal, including her ex, begin to die amid mysterious circumstances, and Savannah’s niece becomes an unwitting target.

Against their better instincts, Jett and Savannah join ranks to sort the facts from fiction. But can Savannah trust the reporter who threw her life into chaos? And can Jett face the possibility that he’s made the biggest mistake of his life?

It’s hard to say where I will go next. I’ve read every enticing thing at the top of my TBR list. Maybe it will be today’s download, unless there is another must-read showing up in the next 24 hours or so.

These days life is busy with other things so at least the pressure is off to find enticing before the current book ends.

It was exciting getting to this one but it is not turning out as well as I’d hoped. There is a lot going on and a dominant story doesn’t seem to be in the mix. This isn’t working out well for me.

Rather than pulling me in it’s leaving me lost and a little adrift. I’m skimming often, still trying to decide if I care to stick around long enough to see how it ends.

Unless something changes, the way it stands at 51% the ending won’t be much of a surprise anyway.

I’m not disliking the story, I’m just disappointed.
