Carmela's Quandary is a quick moving story filled with tragedy, suspense and many twists and turns.
Carmela becomes the ward of her Uncle Silas at the age of twelve when her parents die on the trail west. Silas forces young Carmela perform in front of large crowds, telling a made up story of captivity. As Carmela ages, she longs to stop the lies, but her uncle says she must perform, he says she owes him for her father's debt. A stage coach robbery provides an opportunity like none other. With Uncle Silas injured and taken by the robbers, Carmela ends up handcuffed to a handsome deputy.
I will stop here, I don't want to give any spoilers. If you are drawn to the Inspirational Historical western fiction genre, you will love this book, if not, this would be a perfect introduction.
Freeland is a US Marshall and finds himself on a stagecoach with a prisoner, Carmela and her uncle. The story gets very interesting as the stagecoach finds themselves in danger. I thought Freeland was very brace and I loved how he was so protective of Carmela. They find that they must depend on each other to survive and find help. The author has really written a western story that has all the makings for a movie. The intrigue and action is top notch , the characters are very strong and Carmela's faith is very refreshing. Can Carmela trust Freeland to help her get away from her uncle? Will Freeland be able to help make Carmela be happy? Will she finally live a life in freedom from her past and find love along the way?
I don't want to say more because the story has many elements in there that are vital for readers to grasp. It's not just another western story, but a western story filled with hope, danger, redemption and forgiveness.
I received a copy of this book from The Barbour Publishing Review Crew. The review is my own opinion.

US Marshal Freeland McKay hopes to transport his prisoner to Prescott without incidents. When Carmela and her uncle travel on the same stagecoach, his curiosity is aroused. When problems befall them, he feels he must do what he can to protect her.
Susan Page Davis weaves an intriguing tale with just the right amount of historical details, suspense, and romance. I was sad when the book came to an end. Great job, Susan.
Carmela has been travelling around with her uncle for the past eight years telling lies. She was only a girl when her parents died, and her uncle has forced her to travel around the country, giving performances telling of her time with the Indians. The problem is, she was never captured by Indians. She wants to tell the truth, but she doesn’t see a way out. When the stagecoach they’re travelling on is attacked by outlaws, Carmela gets separated from her uncle…and attached to Freeland. Literally.
Freeland lost his prisoner in the attack and now his most pressing issue is to get Carmela to safety. Eventually, she reveals the truth, and he wants to help. Carmela isn’t even sure if her uncle is alive, but she sees the opportunity to try and start over.
I liked the first part of this book, when Carmela and Freeland are together. But then they get separated for a HUGE chunk of the book. I got glimpses into what they were both doing, but they weren’t together. Later, they meet up for about a minute before separating again. They don’t really get back together until the last part of the book, and by then, I wasn’t as interested in the relationship. It was more Carmela’s plight at that point.
The way Carmela and Freeland get pulled apart for so long for so much of the book bothered me. It put the story off-balance, and I didn’t enjoy it as much as I could have. It was just okay.
*I received a copy of this book from Barbour Publishing through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
