About the Book
Book: The Trouble with Nancy
Author: Chautona Havig
Genre: Christian Historical Romance, Western
Release Date: July 18, 2019
Her reputation precedes her, whether the bad guys realize it or not.
Nancy Harrison has finally stepped out of her prissy box and tried to do something helpful–but did she go overboard in her first self-less act?
She can’t ride, she hates horses, and she’s terrified of being alone. What’s a girl to do?
Join the Pony Express, of course.
When Nancy Harrison’s family receives a tax bill they can’t pay, there’s only one option open to them. Her brother, Lewis, will have to join the Pony Express and earn the money that way.
It would have worked, too, if ruffians hadn’t attacked him and broken his leg.
She doesn’t want to do it, of course, but what choice is there? Lose everything or ride a stupid, smelly horse for a few weeks? Nancy decides that she’ll chop off her hair, take to the dusty overland trail, and prove that she isn’t a “flighty little thing.”
But things go from bad to worse as she discovers that riding astride is worse than sidesaddle—especially when you’re not used to it.
Can’t she just go back home to balls, teas, and the hope of a suitor before her twentieth birthday? Sans her hair, of course, because that’ll entice the fellows. Sigh.

"Well, that's the trouble with Nancy, isn't it? You can never can tell how she'll surprise you next." I love this quote from the book, because it really sums up what the book is about.
This story about a female pony express rider is quote a fantastic read. The fun fact is that she isn't really doing what she thinks she is doing. The book is about greed and gold as well as delivering the mail.
I love the ending, but there is a sight chance but it might made a few tears fall , both happy and sad ones.
I love this quote because it is just really what the christian life is and we can relate with Nancy and said Yes, that is right. Here is the quote " It's just that I went through tortures to pay off a debt, but when I finished and went to pay, the account was settled for me. Jesus did. We try to be good, and read the texts, and say our prayers, and not kill people..." ...or thrash them when they put us through horrible things...."But in the end, all we did to pay that debt wasn't necessary. The Collector won't take it. He only accepts Jesus' payment for us. That's the one He wants." Even through this is the book, the book is not preachy.
I really enjoyed this book from the beginning to the end.
Great book Chautona Having and I for one am glad you wrote it!
