Book Review ~ Panning For Love by Meg Cross Wenig ~ 1/26/2021


Title:  Panning For Love by Meg Cross Wenig
Series:  N/A
Pages:  285
Date Published:  September 28, 2020
Publisher:  Kindle Edition


Maggie Carver found herself as the third wheel in her own relationship with a guy who was really good at living a double life—until he wasn’t. Since then, trust didn’t come easily. Two years later, her best friend convinced her to go live for a week in Summit Springs, an old mining town in Utah. In a historical reenactment experience, they would get to live as people did in 1866 during the Wild West. What Maggie didn’t plan on was falling for an outlaw from a wanted poster.

For John, it was love at first sight. He and Maggie had a rare connection, and it wasn’t every day someone understood his humor. He never minded playing the part as livery owner by day and outlaw by night at Summit Springs—until now. His other job came with a nice paycheck, but people normally treated him differently when they found out about it. John didn’t want a thing to change between him and Maggie.

Will Maggie let John steal her heart or will past fears foil the heist?

My Thoughts:
I knew I would love this book from the time I read a review written about it and of course read the blurb.  I immediately went and downloaded it from Kindle Unlimited.

I love history so the idea of spending a week back in time sounds like so much fun!  In fact, certain aspects of this book reminded me of Austenland by Shannon Hale, a favorite of mine :)

The book is written in the first person from Maggie's perspective.  I usually prefer reading both sides of a story but I think in this case it lent to the air of mystery.  I don't want to give anything away, but I figured out John's "other job" at least I had a good idea.

Maggie was such a fun character and was so witty and sharp-as-a-tack!  John fell right into step alongside her.

I loved that, even though the time-table was one week, the way the author wrote didn't make the love story feel rushed at all.

Meg Cross Wenig is a new-to-me author but I'm already excited about reading more book by her!  Again, I got this book through Kindle Unlimited but in case you'd like to purchase it, it is $3.99 to download on Amazon.

Onto the next book!
