About the book:

     Love and second chances aren’t easy to come by in a town named Tombstone. When Christy Grey receives an urgent summons to Tombstone, Arizona, she reluctantly leaves her new life in California. The trip goes from bad to worse when four masked men hold up Christy’s stage. She finally arrives in Tombstone to find her mother ill and her brother trapped in a life of gambling. Desperate for money to support her family, will Christy bow to pressure from the local saloon owners and return to the life she thought she’d given up for good?

     Nevada King has problems of his own. He’s been dodging bullets for years and wants nothing more than to settle down and get married. But he’s on the run from outlaws bent on revenge, and the one woman who captures his interest recognizes him from the stagecoach holdup. Will Christy turn Nevada in to the authorities, or will the outlaws on his trail catch him first?

My review:

     An absolutely wonderful historical romance novel!

     I loved both Christy Grey and Nevada King. Miralee did an incredible job of developing and presenting these great characters. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting them and slowly learning about their personal backgrounds. It helped me see what shaped them into the people they are at the time of this story.

     The interest between them started to build slowly which is what I like to see in a book. It feels more natural to me that way. I was fascinated by the inclusion of some characters that I have actually heard about in history and many other books and movies set in the period and location.

     One other thing that I really enjoyed in this story was the focus on God’s redemption. Both Christy and Nevada were encouraged to trust God by others in their lives.

     Sorrel Brigman did one of the best jobs of narrating that I have ever heard in an audio book. The variety of voices that she used for the different characters kept the book alive. I was totally entranced by her narration.

     I was entranced by this wonderful story and the performance by the narrator. I am highly recommending it. I will be looking for more audio books performed by Sorrel Brigman. This marvelous presentation gets a rating of 5 stars from me.

  1. Wow! Thanks so much for your awesome review. I love Sorrel, as well. She was a perfect fit for my characters....didn't you just love how she did Nellie Cashman with the Irish lilt? I'm a huge audio fan, so this was very fun to see one of mine turned into audio.
