"Want to hear God laugh? Tell him what you got planned for your life." Those words ring in 1870s federal agent Dan Sullivan's ears as he shelves his retirement to infiltrate a band of payroll thieves. He didn't expect to meet stubborn mail-order bride Hope Kallahan, who gets kidnapped by the gang and held for ransom, or that she would be a veritable magnet for danger. As she intimidates hardened criminals into cleaning house and talks Dan into rescuing her, Dan believes God had a reason for throwing her in his path. A Western romp full of hilarity and good, old-fashioned fun.

Hope finds herself locked in a cabin with the funny bunch of bandits. Three roughians and a Christian bible quoting gentleman. Hope orders the bandits to clean up the mess that is the cabin and refuses to enter it until they do so.
Dan eventually helps Hope to escape her captors and agrees to take her to her fiance in Medford. However, the journey is not without problems. First they come across a feuding family and is caught in the crossfire. When they do finally leave the feuding family Dan is shot at and wounded. Their journey is delayed as Dan recovers from a fever caused by his wound. Next they come across a wounded little old lady who is bedridden. They stay with her a few days to help her recover and also for Dan to rest from his gunshot wound.
When Dan and Hope to finally come across the next big town they are relieved only for Hope to be kidnapped again by the ruthless Davidson Gang. During this kidnapping, Hope manages to convert one of the bandits, saying that he should mend his ways and that God loves him. When Dan does eventually get around to rescuing Hope a second time, the whole group including Dan and Hope are thrown into jail. Once set free, Dan and Hope finally make it to Medford. However, Hope no longer wishes to marry her intended for she has hopelessly fallen in love with Dan.
This was a great fun read. Although the Davidson Gang are meant to be a group of roughians, you could see the funny side of the story when they are bossed about by the headstrong Hope. Dan made a gallant hero, always coming to the rescue of Hope and Hope was a strong heroine, never being beaten into submission by any fate which fell her way. I only wish more books were as well written as this one. There was adventure, suspense, comedy and romance. A highly recommended read!

Hope has left home to meet her fiance, John, in Kentucky. She has more than a lifetime of problems getting to him. She is kidnapped when mistaken for the senator's daughter, she nearly dies of illness, and she cannot figure out where God is in all this.
In spite of the delay, she presses on to reach her betrothed. In the interim she meets a lawman infiltrating a gang, families feuding and fighting, and a sweet old lady.
Lori Copeland did a great job mixing Christianity, humor, history and love in this third book. I have already ordered book 4, "Glory" - and would recommend the entire series.
