Maggie Brendan's sequel to No Place for a Lady is an improvement on the series-opener. Brendan gives herself the opportunity to showcase her abilities. I saw a review on the back of the book saying that her writing is reminiscent of Janette Oke, and I have to agree. Her writing is more quickly paced than Oke's, but it has the same feeling of someone telling you their story first-hand. She depicts the Western atmosphere with talent and knowledge, and doesn't make the same shortcuts that were evident in her the first book in the series.
Josh, Crystal's dismayed suitor from the first book, has traveled to Montana to strike out for a living of his own after breaking off badly with his father. (I would have liked to see that Josh had a better resolution with his family, but I have a feeling that may come in the next book.) He soon meets Juliana Brady through tragic circumstances, a young woman whose charm and humility entrances him as quickly as the Yogo Sapphires being found in the area. Juliana and Josh may be bound for one another, but what will it take to overcome Juliana's distrust, and the challenges some sparkling sapphires have in store for Josh? I really enjoyed the 'cameo' appearances of some artists, and the fact that some of the more negative characters turned out to be far more endearing than one might think at first.
A gentle romance and a quick read, Jewel of His Heart is a heartwarming, though predictable, novel to keep handy for summer reading.
