"Always a Lady" is a historical fiction about belly dancing in the old west. Yes, belly dancing. A different idea for me. I loved the women of Bandit Creek, the feisty bordello owner, Lorelei Sutton, and Maggie O'Connor, the bakery owner. These two women and Lady Serena turned a difficult circumstance into something remarkable. This was a great introduction to Bandit Creek, but way too short for a story unto its self. I really wanted more from this story. I want to know more. I really wanted more background information on Lord and Lady Serena, more about the town, more about why they were there.
However, all that said, for a novella and the length that it was, it enjoyed the light and frothy read. I give it 4 out of 5 clouds for the category of novela.

Impatient to be re-united with her husband Randolph, Lady Serena Buxton follows him to Bandit Creek, where he has interests in a gold mining operation. But, on her arrival, she is horrified to find that Randolph is missing and presumed dead.
Serena has her doubts that Randolph is truly gone. She is suspicious of the mine manager and is aware the sheriff is keeping an eye on her. She is also practically penniless. The bank manager's refusal to allow her access to her husband's funds compounds her problem and is only the first of many obstacles this endearing character must confront. Her one talent is totally unexpected but with the help of two local women she exploits it to the best of her ability to make ends meet until she can find the truth about what has happened to her husband.
Mary Buckham, co-author of BREAK INTO FICTION and an avid reader of debut authors!
With the prospect of being tossed out of her husband's hotel room at the end of the month, Serena devises a plan to raise funds while watching for any clue to her husband's whereabouts. She cannot bring herself to believe the man she dearly loves is dead, but is this simply wishful thinking on her part?
Ms. Chatham weaves a charming historical tale filled with believable characters, suspense, mystery and romance that will keep you turning the pages until the very end.
- Brenda Sinclair, author of contemporary and historical American West romance
Not only is she worried about his welfare, she's soon left fretting about her own. Lord Randolph's disappearance has left Serena instantly penniless. But the unconventional Lady has a novel talent she hopes to exploit for cash while she investigates her husband's fate. A talent that involves a veil and a lot of hip action.
Author Victoria Chatham seamlessly weaves together history, mystery, a love story, and still manages to make social commentary on the role of women during the period. A must-read installment in the Bandit Creek Books series.
