The Trouble with Patience by Maggie Brendan

Patience Cavanaugh has lost hope in romance. The man she yearned to marry is dead and her dreams are gone with him. Now she is consumed with the restoration of a dilapidated boarding house in order to support herself. Despite her desire for solitude, Jedediah Jones, the local sheriff with a reputation for hanging criminals, becomes an ever-looming part of her life. It seems like such a simple arrangement: Patience needs someone with a strong back to help her fix up the boardinghouse, and Jedediah needs a dependable source of food for himself and his prisoners. But Patience gets more than she bargained for as she explores the depths of the "hanging lawman"--and finds both betrayal and love.

Patience is an independent woman whose walk with God is something to be admired.  Her forgiving spirit gave me something to think about.  It was interesting watching her and Jedediah’s romance blossom. Jedediah has some issues of his own.  He has to learn how to forgive himself for things he has done in the past. 
This a pretty predictable book as I knew pretty much how it would end.  There were some twists that I did not see coming.  I would recommend this book to anyone who would like a light read. It is not one that I will probably read again. But a good book none the less. 
I received this book from the publisher for an honest review.  I was not compensated in any way.
