THE OUTLAW'S LADY
THE OUTLAW'S LADY (4) by Laurie Kingery: Rio Grande Valley, Texas, 1880: Tess Hennessy would rather be photographing people than going to the social gatherings her mother insists she attend. One night she's waylaid by a gang of thieves and kidnapped because their leader wants her to photograph him. Rancher Sandoval Parrish is part of this gang, but he's not what he seems. He's bent on revenge against Delgado, the leader, for using and tossing aside his sister. Tess isn't sure if she believes Sandoval, but to stay alive, she has to trust into him, and he in turn must trust her. Kingery's novel is full of suspense, romance and trickery. The characters are defined not only by their strengths but also by their weaknesses.
