Marnie: Pendleton Petticoats Book 4 is another hit in the series, as well as a wonderful stand-alone story. Marnie is a young woman working in a bordello as a saloon girl in the early 1900s. United States Marshal Lars Thorsen is the man who will change her life forever. Lars travels to Pendleton in hopes of catching the Barlow Gang which has committed many crimes throughout the West. It is an added bonus when, much to his surprise and happiness, he finds his long-lost sisters Aundy and Ilsa, and meets Marnie with whom he falls madly in love. Marnie is slowly convinced that she needs to change her lifestyle and become a respected citizen of the town. She uses her sewing skills to begin working in Ilsa’s shop and turns away from her old life. We spend time reunited with Aundy, Ilsa, Caterina and their families, and share in the new adventures of Marnie, Lars, and the orphan children they quickly learn to love.
Once again Shanna Hatfield has a written a winning romantic historical story, even including a must-try recipe for Coconut Cake. Marnie is book four in the series that just keeps getting better and better. I can hardly wait for the next installment to spend more time being carried back into 1904. I would absolutely love to see these books come alive on the Hallmark Channel as a season show. I highly recommend you read Marnie and the rest of the Pendleton Petticoat series; it is perfect reading.
