This is a wonderful historical with romance, mystery and characters who are sweet, cunning and determined to get the upper hand on the bad guys. Historical details are written so well that readers can visualize the sights and sounds of Indian country. Morris is an amazing writer; he brings to life the 19th century — the good and the bad — with style and grace.
Sabrina has just been conned and her younger sister has been kidnapped. She needs help — fast. When Sabrina’s family’s money does not get them justice, she decides to go after the con artist herself, but the only person she can get to help her is barely on the right side of the law. Waco Smith reluctantly agrees to help Sabrina, for a price. They each put their dislike of the other aside to try and save a woman’s life. (BARBOUR, Dec., 320 pp., $12.99)
