4.0 out of 5 stars Along Came Jones May 1, 2003
New Yorker Deanna Manetti is running for her life when she is accused of laundering drug money. She's been framed, the law doesn't believe her, a crime syndicate is after her, and she has nowhere to go but the road. Hoping to disappear, Deanna winds up in the wilderness of Montana ending up being run off the road by a wild horse. When she recovers she's is in the arms of a long tall cowboy named Shepard Jones. repaired. He knows something is not right but is willing to be patient until she trusts him enough to tell him what is wrong. Deanna is a city slicker through and through and some of the hilarious situations she and Shep find themselves in will have you laughing out loud. Deanna is used to analyzing businesses and coming up with great ideas to make them work. It doesn't include cooking or ranch chores. <Grin> Oh my, this city gal sure gets herself into more tight spots on that ranch. Beware; you may endanger your ribs from laughing so much.
The town of Buffalo Butte will never be the same after Deanna gets through running a three-ring circus by trying to keep her secret about what really happened from Shep and dealing with all the locals. And it seems Shep knows more about Deanna's trouble than he is letting on. The saving grace is that God is the ringleader as he leads Shep and Deanna on the road to love and romance as they follow the Word of the Lord as they each seek His counsel when the chips are down putting their lives in jeopardy.
Linda Windsor tells a heartwarming tale of love, suspense and inspiration that tangles your heartstrings up tight as a rope on a wild horse being brought home. Ms. Windsor has a wonderful touch with her writing that helps readers to realize the doubts and struggles we all go though in life as we question what we should and shouldn't do.

4.0 out of 5 stars fun romantic suspense thriller April 5, 2003
Deanna Manetti knows she is in deep trouble, but not how to get out of it. The mob thinks she has something that belongs to them. The Great Falls police have overwhelming circumstantial evidence that leads them to conclude she killed her lover-employer C.R. Majors. That is why Deanna is driving on a Montana back road thinking how things could not get any worse when a sorrel comes out of nowhere causing her to crash. The native New Yorker wonders why God has abandoned her while ironically pondering fourteen years of driving in NYC without an accident and now alone, her car is disabled. Rancher Shep Jones arrives and takes Deanna by horse to his spread, which is more of a ghost town.
Being a former US Marshal, Shep concludes that Deanna is on the run, but offers her shelter anyway. As Shep and Deanna fall in love, he tries to learn the truth, but she fears trusting anyone after what C.R. did to her heart and her life. However, the criminals and the Feds are closing in on her and neither side cares what happens to Deanna. Only Shep and his partner want to keep "Slick" safe.
Though there are numerous religious elements included in this story line, ALONG CAME JONES is more of a romantic suspense thriller than an inspirational romance. The story line hooks the audience from almost the beginning when a weary Deanna wonders what she ever did to be abandoned and turns wary when ALONG CAME JONES. Though his previous occupation seems too convenient, readers will rate highly Linda Windsor's latest contemporary tale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of "Alnong Came Jones" March 1, 2009
Although this book was published several years ago, copies can still be obtained. My love for reading and collecting books is my one true vice. Thus, I have accumulated quite a collection of great reading material. Unfortunately, that means some really great books, like this one, sit upon my shelf just waiting to be opened and absorbed.

Title: "Along Came Jones"

Author: Linda Windsor

With realistic characterization, Linda Windsor, drawls the reader into the believable struggles that befall a young woman after she makes some poor choices in life. Deanna Manetti, a young businesswoman hailing from New York, transfers to Montana in hopes of climbing the corporate ladder to even greater success and thinking she has found a loving relationship with her new boss. Unbeknownst to Deanna, her boss implicates her as his accomplice in a money laundering/embezzlement scheme. Not only do the police have all sorts of questions for her, but the mob wants the stolen money returned to them. Deanna finds herself in more trouble than she can handle and is unsure of whom to trust or where she can turn for help. Attempting to flee from the mess that has become her life, Deanna literally collides with God's solution in the form of retired US Marshall, Shep Jones. After sustaining a life altering injury, Shep retreats to his homestead located amidst a ghost town in the Montana hills of Buffalo Butte. His former job in law enforcement makes Shep suspicious by nature. He senses something about his attractive, new guest that has him questioning what she is running from. Fighting attraction along the way, Shep vows to keep Deanna safe.

More About the Author

Linda Windsor is the author of twenty-nine contemporary and historical novels. Her first sixteen were secular historical romance for Zebra/Kensington Publishing, NY as Linda Windsor and Linda Covington. In 1999, she switched to the inspirational market, once she was assured that Christian characters were not only flawed, but did indeed have hormones. Her late husband used to tease that there was a little of Linda in each of her heroines. Windsor contends he must have been referring to her sense of humor, resourcefulness and stubborness. NOT the figure.

Her inspirational historicals have placed in the secular historical category of some RWA contests and Affaire De Coeur polls. Both her inpirational historicals and romantic comedies, dashed with suspense, have won a few National Reader's Choice Awards, Aspen Golds, Barclay Golds, and numerous other RWA contests as well as the CBA Christy Award for the Irish Celtic RIONA, #2 of the Fires of Gleannmara series.

Windsor resides in a "painfully" restored (as in never do that again!) historic home on the Eastern Shore of MD. She still enjoys singing and playing music (keyboard and guitar) after a ten year stint in an 80's professional band. Today she plays the organ in her church and frequently does special music with guitar at church and for various charities.

Then there are home improvements. She can paper, paint, refinish furniture, and renovate, but... Let's suffice it to say, this Red Hat Lady and AARP member doesn't enjoy them as much as she used to.

Windsor is currently contracted for a three book historical trilogy titled Brides of Alba. HEALER, book one, will hit the shelves this June.
