Louisa Bell finds herself jobless with no place to live. As a former dance hall singer, her prospects are limited. When she learns that her Army brother is in trouble again, she determines to travel to Indian Territory to talk some sense into him before he's kicked out of the cavalry because of his antics. When she arrives, she had no intention of deceiving her brother's commanding officer, but when she's mistaken for someone else and it means a job, she finds herself deciding to fill in for a short time.
Major Daniel Adams is struggling with the home front - or at least his two rambunctious daughters. The governess the Mennonite Society sent isn't anything like he anticipated. Her methods and ways are sometimes unorthodox, but she seems to be able to take his daughters successfully in hand, which is what he desires. As long as he can keep his heart out of the mix he won't have any problems.
I found Holding the Fort to be a delightful story. I particularly enjoyed the humor that Regina brings to each of her tales. She is a master at creating a story that the reader can't put down and is sad when the book comes to an end. I give it a 5 out of 5 for happily-ever-afters.
