JACOB’S LADDER is the
third novel in ZA Maxfield’s magical ST. NACHO’S series. I am always happy to
visit with the people of St. Nachos. I was excited to see characters from
previous novels make an appearance St. Nacho’s is a magical place. People who
find there way to this small town always find their lives changed for the
better and in unexpected ways.
Yasha is no exception.
Yasha is a complicated but appealing character. I was really touched by Jacob’s
story. He suffered a very abusive childhood. As an adult Yasha finds himself
with an abusive boyfriend but it takes almost being killed for him to walk
away. In St. Nacho’s he finds a group of
domestic violence survivors who change his life.
JT is a kind and caring
person but he has his own issues to work out. Although, he is attracted to
Yasha he believes that being gay is wrong because his faith tells him so. JT
frustrated me but I also felt sorry for him. He is very conflicted. I really wanted these two heroes to find
their way to one another and I cheered them on until the end. Jacob’s brother
is an unexpected treat. He is fun and very funny. I hope he gets his own story.
