    LOOKING BEYOND JUDGMENT I enjoyed the third book in the Three Rivers Express series that covers the small town of Three Rivers in Wyoming and the Pony Express. The story will easily read as a stand-alone and has many of the key characters that are in the other books in this series. While the story still includes bits and pieces about the Pony Express, it also brings up some of the rising issues with the Indians, and also with tension among the military that is supposed to protect the civilians an LOOKING BEYOND JUDGMENT I enjoyed the third book in the Three Rivers Express series that covers the small town of Three Rivers in Wyoming and the Pony Express. The story will easily read as a stand-alone and has many of the key characters that are in the other books in this series. While the story still includes bits and pieces about the Pony Express, it also brings up some of the rising issues with the Indians, and also with tension among the military that is supposed to protect the civilians and help keep peace with the Indians. This story also brings out about judging someone based on prejudice and assumption. Stone Brown is a rider under Levi Hawkins for the Pony Express. He left his family and his past, which included a hateful father, but it also meant leaving his mother and siblings. He has found more acceptance under the influence of Levi and Olivia Hawkins. Charity Mitchell may work in the Crystal Dawn saloon dealing cards and serve drinks, but she is no soiled dove. When her father disappeared and was assumed dead while they were in New Orleans, Laiden McMasters took her under his care since she was just a little girl, and has raised her. While living in a saloon wasn’t a place to raise a child, it was what it was. Liaden has treated her well, protecting her, and providing for her. The plot will have Stone and Charity slowly developing feelings for each other. He doesn’t see her as tainted or a soiled dove and starts courting her. He is furious at how some of the so-called upstanding citizens in town treat her. The Hawkins have great respect for Charity, especially after she took a stand and helped Wyeth. They consider her a friend, and she is welcome in their home. “Sometimes the heart runs on its own pace. We can’t set a timetable.” The story will have several scenes that include tension with the military and also trouble brewing with the Indians. Stone and Brett will be sent out of secret missions to Fort Valor to deliver a letter from Washington to the Major. During their overnight stay, they will come to the aid of an overzealous preacher outside of one of the saloons. The Hawkins are planning a holiday dance at the home where Olivia is thrilled that Stone will be bringing Charity. In the Christian nature of the season, she will be inclined to invite Pierson, and he will cause problems. It never fails that certain people are troublemakers, especially those who want to act all pious and ignore what the Bible teaches them. “I love Charity, Mr. Hawkins. I always will. People like Pierson just can’t stand happiness. I don’t think he’ll bother us anymore now that his little secret is out. Thank you again, for taking me on and making me a better man. You are the father I wish I’d had.” –Stone Brown to Levi Hawkins. The story has angst, threats, rising problems, danger, and suspense, especially as tension escalates between the whites and the Indians. Several people are injured in this story, and it shows how good people help and make a difference, especially where there is no doctor present. While the story does not end on a cliffhanger, it does end with tension that I am sure will come out in the next books. The story is a sweet, clean historical based story of new beginnings, that has ordinary people who accept the extraordinary challenges of life. I look forward to the next book in this series.

These sweet romantic stories take us back to the time of the Wild West and how the Pony Express kept it connected to the rest of the U.S. Each book features a different Express rider, with Stone Brown up in the saddle to ride to his HEA. Stone Brown joined up with the Express after becoming estranged from his family. He has settled nicely into Three Rivers, where his fellow riders, stationmaster Levi Hawkins and his wife have become Stone’s new family, and that is enough for him. So when Charity Mitchell catches his eye, with her beauty and smile, Stone surprisingly starts to believe maybe a home and family to call his own is within reach. Charity, however, cannot allow herself such illusions. Orphaned when her father goes missing while they are traveling through Mississippi, young Charity is taken in by Laiden McMasters, a saloon keep. McMasters protects Charity from the unsavory characters, but nonetheless she grows up as a “saloon girl,” dealing cards, serving drinks and wearing rouge on her cheeks. But when the danger from her past that has come to Three Rivers continues to confront her and escalates in violence, Stone realizes he must show Charity and the town what she means to him. Once again, a wonderful read! There is a slow-building (but never boring) tension building throughout this series that fascinates me. As people are moving westward, the Native American lands are being invaded and claimed, creating an emerging scenario of fear and violence. In this book, the tensions between settlers and the Native Americans are at an all-time high. This reflects the escalating tension Charity feels as someone feels very threatened by what she knows. Added to that is the fact that the 1800s had a very different view of women in the workplace, and saloon girls were not the kind of woman a respectable man took home to meet the family. Ms. O’Berry, realistically and with a fine touch, shows us that world where Charity lived as a fallen woman. And in doing so, creates a true hero in Stone, who saw past the rouge to see a fine, intelligent, brave woman who due to circumstances had to struggle to survive in a society not kind to women without families. The mix of danger, suspense and romance made for excellent reading when put to paper by an author with terrific writing skills. The plot, pacing and character development was very spot-on. I look forward to the next Express rider to grace the pages!

Stone is a rider for the pony express and is dependable, hard worker, and protective. The express riders route is becoming more dangerous as trouble is brewing between the Indians and the ranchers. A sense of unease and a threat of an uprising is in the air. This is a sweet series and I look forward to each addition. Former riders and their wives all make appearances. Levi Hawkins who runs the Pony Express and his wife Olivia Hawkins are wonderful parental figures to the riders and ensure their safety & health. I would’ve like to see more focus of the main couple together. Always, Stone leaves you with the sense of upcoming danger to the pony express and changes to the town. A hint of a romance blooming between young Anna and rider Brett. Overall an enjoyable read and good addition to the series.

    I enjoy stories about the Pony Express. Handsome riders blazing the trail is hard to resist. Stone Brown thinks he's too smart to fall into the matrimony trap. He's found himself in the role of protector for a presumed soiled dove. Charity Mitchell is well acquainted with abandonment and scorn. Raised by a saloon owner after her fathers deserts her. I enjoyed this sweet story of redemption. I could sense the camaraderie of the rider brotherhood. The friendship of the wives is beautiful. The communi I enjoy stories about the Pony Express.

The grammatical errors and typos made me think this story wasn't examined enough before going to print. If you can get beyond these errors, it's a good read. I won a paperback copy from the author. All views expressed are my honest opinion.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I really enjoyed Charity and Stone’s story. Charity wanted more was afraid to step out and try for it. I liked how she was willing to take the risk with encouragement. McMasters and several others in the community had her back. I also liked how Stone saw her for who she was and not based on her preconceived past. He loved her regardless. I also like how these stories have another story going on in the background. Great story!
