Overview Feisty, strong-willed Hannah Grace Kane strikes up a volatile relationship with the new local sheriff, Gabriel Devlin--a relationship that turns to romance, thanks to a shy orphan boy and a little divine intervention.
Publishers Description Growing up in the west Michigan resort town of Sandy Shores in the early 1900s, Hannah Grace, the eldest of Jacob Kane's three daughters, is feisty and strong-willed, yet practical. Between working at her father's general store and courting the town's physician, Ralston Van Huff, Hannah has her life planned out in an orderly, meaningful way. Or so she thinks. Hannah's world turns upside down when the new sheriff comes to town. Gabriel Devlin is strong, outspoken, and a Christian, to boot-but he's sworn off women, having met ones mostly interested in money and apathetic about God. Determined to ignore the newcomer's handsome looks, Hannah is drawn to him nonetheless by a shy, runaway orphan boy named Jesse. While Hannah works to befriend the shy vagabond, who's living with Gabriel until other arrangements can be made, God works in her heart. What plans does He have in store for this young woman who thought she had it all together?

Sweet, Sassy and wonderful! May 31, 2010
Oh my heavenly stars, I absolutely fell in love with Sharlene MacLaren's writing! She is another new-to-me author and also one that is on my favorite author list!! I was so excited to have the chance to review "Hannah Grace", the first book in The Daughters of Jacob Kane series. This book did not disappoint me in anywany!
In this good, clean, sweet and sassy historical, Sharlen MacLaren introduces us to Hannah Grace, the eldest of Jacob Kane's sassy bunch. I was captured from page one, in which the story completely wrapped around my heart and pulled me into this heart-warming, God-filled story. When I met Hannah, my mother instincts kicked in and wanted to guide her in every way. But, boy when I met her beau, Ralston, I was inclined to want to pop him upside his head and tell him "wake up and don't be dimwitted!". And there was the matter of sweet Jesse Gant and the Sheriff Devlin who was looking after him. Both just stole my heart away!
I really enjoyed this fast paced read. I found myself often wishing the story wouldn't end. I laughed so much through this story. It's filled to over flowing with humor, love, family and friends coming together in times of crisis, over coming the problem by trusting in God and fully relying on His will.
This book is one worthy of 5 star praises and so much more. Please don't hesitate to take a chance with this book. It's truly an excellent story and I'm anxious to see what's happening to "Maggie Rose", Jacob Kane's middle daughter and book 2 in the series!
Great Start to a New Series! May 14, 2010
I've enjoyed all of Sharlene Maclaren's books and am now anxious to read the rest of this series! Hannah Grace kept my interest and made me want to keep reading to the end. I enjoyed all the characters in this book with the exception of the villains. I thought it was a bit far fetched for them to chase a little boy who was a witness to their crime when they could have just left the area but it really didn't impact my enjoyment of the story. You will finish this book wanting to belong to the Kane family or at least move to Sandy Shores and become their close friends :0)
Pleasant Reading May 3, 2010
In this almost predictable historical Christian story, Hannah Grace had the grace, dignity and spunk of a lady in the early 1900's. Her fire red hair was a giveaway to her personality and the young sheriff in town found that enchanting. There were some good twists to the story which kept readers involved although we all know the typical ending of a historial romance, I have given the book 5 stars because it was a clean and good Christian values for all readers to enjoy. Recommended for church libriaries.
good plot but weak romance Mar 1, 2010
i liked maclaren's plot in hannah grace a lot. jesse was just so adorable! of all the characters i liked him and jacob kane the best. hannah and gabe's personalities were not described well enough. if they were i would have given the book at least four stars
Enjoyable read Feb 1, 2010
I enjoyed reading this book very much, and liked getting acquainted with the various characters in this book. I look forward to reading the next book in this series, and finding out what else is going to happen with the Kane family.
