This story just pulled me in and had me running from hornets, watching out for Indians and hoping Miss Louisa Bell would come out on top! Lots of action, made me smiles and some, oh mys, had me reading way past bedtime! Definitely one of my favorite reads this year!
I was gifted a copy and my review is voluntary…
From the start I was pulled into this story in a little mountain town where the people have formed a vigilante group that will dish out justice because the Sheriff isn’t. Betsy helps her Uncle in the small town newspaper office and loves to hunt down a good story. When the new Deputy arrives on the train and lands in the middle of a hooded marauders ride he knows he has his work cut out! Lots of action and mystery with ‘the hero always coming back for his lady’. I was gifted a copy and this definitely is another for my favorites list!
ABOUT THE BOOK: Betsy Huckabee might be a small-town girl, but she has big-city dreams. Writing for her uncle’s newspaper will never lead to independence, and the bigger newspapers don’t seem interested in the Hart County news. Trying a new approach, Betsy pens a romanticized serial for the ladies’ pages, and the new deputy provides the perfect inspiration for her submissions. She’d be horrified if he read her breathless descriptions of him, but these articles are for a newspaper far away. No one in Pine Gap will ever know.
Deputy Joel Puckett didn’t want to leave Texas, but this job in tiny Pine Gap is his only shot at keeping his badge. With masked marauders riding every night, his skills and patience are tested, but even more challenging is the sassy journalist lady chasing him.
