Taming Julia by Jodie Wolfe


I just finished reading “Taming Julia” by Jodie Wolfe and I read it in just two days.

Drew needs a wife as soon as possible if he wants to keep his job. He places an ad, but Julia isn’t what he expected.

Julia wears breeches and a stetson, and she totes more than one gun. She is unfamiliar with most things women do and wear, when she arrives in Burrton Springs to move in with a man she married by proxie.

Things don’t go as either Drew or Julia thought they would, and in the beginning, that makes for some laugh-out-loud reading. But as time passes, things grow more serious and the trouble becomes downright dangerous. Soon the reader is on the edge of their seat wondering how things will turn out for Drew and Julia and hoping for the best.

This is a sweet romance story with a message of faith, love, and perseverance. It is an easy read, and it grabbed my attention from the very first page to the last past. It was very enjoyable.

So, if you need something to cheer you up while you’re housebound due to the coronavirus, or you love Christian Romance stories or stories set in the Old West, this book is sure to please.

This is the second book I’ve read by Jodie Wolfe and I will continue reading her books because they are simply delightful. You can see my review of “To Claim Her Heart” by Jodie Wolfe here, and if you’d like to know more about Jodie, you can read my author interview with her here.

Q: When did you know you wanted to be an author?

As a young adult, I believed that one day I would write a non-fiction book, but fiction came as a surprise. Only two years ago, I felt inspired to write my first novel.

Q: Where did the idea for More Than a Second Chance come from?

My debut novel is based on a true story. “Cassie” is a determined woman despite her misfortune and tragedy. I wanted to give her a happy ending, so the romance is fictional until it comes to pass in real life.

Q: Why did you decide to indie publish rather than traditional publishing?

My story is based in Australia with Australian characters which isn’t what American publishers are looking for. We have small publishers in Australia, however with my marketing and business background, I thought I would try indie publishing for this first series.

Q: You are a homeschool mom of seven children. How do you care for a family of this size, homeschool, and still find time to write?

Many people perceive homeschooling to be a massive task. I’ve been homeschooling for fourteen years and I find I’m mainly working with one younger child and the older ones are self-taught with the programs we use. All our homeschooling activities are finished by lunch time. We also attend a once a week group with other families for extra curriculum activities.

Q: What does a typical day in your life look like?

After breakfast, the children have some free time while I check my emails and perhaps do an edit on a chapter. By nine o’clock, I set the children up with homework and work with my new reader for up to an hour. After morning tea break, I work on my computer next to their desk and I’m available if they need help.

In the afternoons I might read a novel or work on writing a chapter in my work in progress. I’ll be finished for the day by five p.m. My schedule is flexible, and family always comes first.

Q: Do you have plans for upcoming novels?

I’m working on Acres of Promise, the next novel in the Single Again series. This one is also a lot of fun, but has some meaningful themes that will bless single mothers.
