Along Came A Soldier is a complex and intriguing historical murder mystery paired with romantic suspense. The characters were interesting and caught my attention early along with the tensions between the two towns. Charity is caring and adventurous. Jethro is impulsive and rough around the edges. Together, Charity and Jethro make a perfect pair. Henry is haunted, showing signs of what we would call PTSD, but still wanted to right his wrong from the past making him a sympathetic villain. I also loved Grace's knowledgeable, meddling and well-meaning character, although I don't know why her boobs had to be described every time she moved. The mystery also pulled me along, though I had the gist of it pretty early, element were added to the very end for an unexpected and satisfying ending.
