Patricia Davids: A MILITARY MATCH

Patricia David
218 pages
Steeple Hills
ISBN: 978-0-373-87506-1

Private Avery Barnes grew up with money, but no love, and everone thinks he's just a wealthy playboy. Everyone, that includes his estranged grandfather. But the military taught him to cherish and value honor and love. To prove to his grandfather that he is made of more than everyone thinks, he plans to win the top prize at a cavalery competition. For this, he needs the help of Jennifer Grant, a local who is exceptionally good at riding. Jennifer, having grown up on the "other side of the tracks", is wary about Avery's commitment to both the competition and her.

I have to admit something. I'm not Christian and I usually am very wary of Christian literature, no matter what genre. But Patricia Davids' books are wonderful reads that I enjoy a lot! I had been waiting for Avery's story ever since I read Military Daddy in January. I had hoped to learn more about him and Patricia Davids made my wish and hope come true (Thanks a lot!). So, it was a much anticipated story, and I was not disappointed! Avery and Jennifer have a history and Jennifer is not too happy about seeing him again, but first her job and then their obligations bring them back together. Ms. Davids chose a clever way to bring them back together and once again created likeable characters. I hope to find a copy of the first book about the men and women of the Commanding Feneral's Mounted Color Guard, just to complete the story - but I still hope there will be more books coming!

Rating: 4/5


  1. Kathrin,
    So glad you liked Military Daddy. Jennifer is my most favorite heroine to date. I hope you can find a copy of The Color of Courage because Jennifer plays an important part in it.

    I'd also like to recomment my latest book, Speed Trap. It's an suspense/mystery story and I think you'll enjoy it.
    Have a great day.

  2. Oh wow! I will definitely try to find The Color of Courage! Wish me luck :-) And I'll check out Speed Trap as well :-)
