For Love of Liberty by Julie Lessman

About the Book
A Match Made in Heaven?
Or Someplace a Whole Lot Warmer?
She’s stubborn, educated, and looking to give women the vote.
He’s bullheaded, successful, and looking to give her a piece of his mind.
But when things heat up, they just may give each other a piece of their hearts.

My Thoughts
There's usually a bit of trepidation when an author ventures into a new genre but I didn't think for a single second that Julie wouldn't deliver another amazing story despite it being a different setting. And of course I was right! I absolutely adored every second of this prequel!
The fireworks were flying of the page and it was the best thing ever! To say that Liberty O'Shea and Finn McShane butted heads would be the understatement of the century. They both had fiery tempers that seemed to come out most when they were with each other and made for some of the best (and most amusing) verbal sparring I have ever read! But underneath all their bickering with each other, they had both always had feelings for the other that they kept buried and never admitted. And when they finally did reveal their feelings there were fireworks of a whole different variety!
The secondary characters were so much fun too, especially Pastor and Mrs. Poppy, and Milo Parks (Finn's best friend and Libby's boss).
I absolutely love how this author manages to weave passion (the good kind), humor, and a strong spiritual message seamlessly into all of her books. And even though this was shorter than she normally writes everything was still beautifully written in and I never felt like it was lacking at all.
So in short this story was beyond amazing (I devoured it as fast as I could) and I cannot wait to read the rest of this series!
