A BRIDE'S PORTRAIT OF DODGE CITY, KANSAS
Vetsch has a great sense of humor and her characters are charming, interesting and hard to forget. During the period of the book, it was rare for women to be photographers, but Adeline sees beauty in everything and goes after her dream.
Adeline Reid has 90 days to come up with enough money to keep her photography business afloat. When a local shopkeeper is found murdered, Deputy Miles Carr’s investigation leads him straight to Adeline’s door. She has no choice but to help, even though it could cost her more than her career if her secret is found out. Miles is attracted to Adeline and is having a tough time keeping his mind on solving the crime, but he believes she knows more than she’s told him. (BARBOUR, Sep., 320 pp., $12.99)
