Five Stars for Taming Julia by Jodie Wolfe In 1875, Kansas bachelor Drew Montgomery's sole desire is to serve God, but his congregation's ultimatum that he marry or leave, forces him to advertise for a wife by proxy. Jules Walker strides into Drew's life wearing breeches and toting a gun and saddle--more cowboy than bride. After years on the trail, she's not exactly wife material, but she longs for home and family, and will do anything to ensure Drew never discovers what she really is. This sweet, inspirational, historical was a joy to read! The book was a quick read which I devoured in two sittings. It had humor, drama, and a suspenseful twist I hadn’t expected. Jodie Wolfe took me back in history to a time period I’ve always loved to read about—the west—and she did it with engaging, and sometimes irritating, characters that made me keep reading to see what would happen next. The juxtaposition of the heroine’s innocence, she had never seen a town before or a cast iron stove, and her steely determination to become a good wife, in spite of the fact that she knew nothing about being wifely, made for some funny situations. She refused to put her side arm away, even wearing it to church, which was a bit of a problem for the pastor and his congregation. I loved the voice of this heroine. It was consistent throughout the book, which is sometimes a hard thing to accomplish when one is using dialect. The actions of this rough and tumble woman, trying to fit into her new life as wife and homemaker, were believable, humorous and, at the same time, elicited empathy from me. Frankly, I loved this heroine and would read the book again, which is something I rarely do, just because of how well the author drew her. If I had any complaints about this book they were; one, I wanted the hero to stand up for Jules sooner than he did; and two, the story ended before I was ready to let it go. If you love stories about the west, strong heroines, and surprise twists, I think you’ll love this well-written, giggle-producing book, Taming Julia, by Jodie Wolfe. I know I did. I received a free copy of this book, but the opinions and review are my own. Catherine Castle

Taming Julia by Jodie Wolfe, is a story about two people whose past's threaten the shaky foundation of the relationship they are working to build. Preconceived notions, half truths and outside interference may cause the very destruction they fear of the home they both secretly long for. Taming Julia brings a combination of humor, drama, twists and turns that left me with held breath as I turned the page. This Historical/Romance is written with a Christian perspective that I appreciate and is a clean read that has lessons in which we can all benefit. I recommend this book and hope all future readers will enjoy it as much as I did. -Sandy Kay Slawson Homemaker and Writer February 17,2020
