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.

Nancy is so determined to help out her mother. There are taxes to pay on the house, and her mother doesn’t have the money. Her brother got hurt, so Nancy decides to earn money.
The story is set in the year 1860 and involves the pony express. I love reading historical books and stories about the pony express. Amazing how they did the mail delivery. Nancy is not very good at horseback riding but determined to get the job now.
This book is part of the Gold Diggers series, but each one is a stand-alone book. I have enjoyed each one I have read so far.
I received a complimentary copy of the book from the author through Celebrate Lit. This book review is my own opinion.
