One of my favorite series of books is Shar MacLaren's Little Hickman Creek series. In the first book, "Loving Liza Jane", I was just captivated with her writing style, the storyline, the settings and the characters. She didn't disappoint in the following books either. I was sad to see that series end. So when I heard that she was writing the Daughters of Jacob Kane series I knew I wanted to check it out right away! So I delved into Hannah Grace and am so pleased to say that the settings, characters and storylines have changed - but Shar's writing style is fully intact and she has another series that is sure to be a winner. I really liked Hannah Grace and can't wait to see where she takes us with Maggie Rose and Abi Ann. She has picked another unique time and place and put a cast of characters around Hannah that made for a delightful jaunt everytime I opened the book. A new sheriff, a mute orphan, dad, 2 sisters, a band of murderers and thieves - a general store (I've always been delighted by general stores, maybe it's a Little House on the Prairie thing, I don't know), a growing town and the year 1904. It's fantastic. I'm already looking forward to the next one!

Very interesting storyline, great characters. Just enough seriousness, some grin-producing moments, and I found myself anxious to get the next book in the series so I can find out what happens with this family next. A good read!

This is the first book in the Daughters of Jacob Kane series and I'm looking forward to the rest of the series!! Hannah Grace is a wonderfully written historical romance but with the welcome touch of suspense woven in as well. The characters were developed beautifully and are easy to identify with.

Gabe moves to Sandy Shores as the new sheriff but doesn't realize he has a stow-away on board, the wild runaway, Jesse. As he tries to settle into his new surroundings and also figure out what to do with the boy who refuses to speak, Gabe meets several of the townfolk, including Hannah Grace, who is quick to jump to conclusions and ruin his day.

This book is one worthy of 5 star praises and so much more. Please don't hesitate to take a chance with this book. It's truly an excellent story and I'm anxious to see what's happening to "Maggie Rose", Jacob Kane's middle daughter and book 2 in the series!
