A young lady has vowed to get vengeance from a man who had seemed exciting and elegant, but had caused the death of her father and caused her to lose their farm. Add in the fact that her father had been an engraver with two plates for counterfeit currency not yet found, and the Secret Service was looking for the same bad man, and it begins to get interesting.
But that's not all. Turns out she doesn't know it, but her father had been working with the Secret Service to make things right, before his death.
And so the stage is set for her to dye her hair, and change her appearance, and set out to right some wrongs. But wait, don't forget romance. Can romance bloom when she mistakes an undercover Secret Service man for her nemesis and runs him down with her wagon on the way into town? Well, you'll have to read the book to see.
But you'll be glad you did.
The author, Tammie Clarke Gibbs, speaks to us at the conclusion of her book. As I've read from other authors, her characters develop a life of their own, she reports, as the novel progresses. She says that as she's writing, it seems as if they take charge of the direction the novel will go. I think one would have to BE an author to truly understand that, but it surely does make for believable characters. There is an integrity to Tammie Clarke Gibbs' work that is quite refreshing, I think.
I have 73 "notes" on my kindle and 99% of them are about commas used incorrectly.
I keep track of problems as I read a book so I am able to remember things when I do a review. This review is mostly for the author as I think she shows great promise, but she needs to get a handle on punctuation. There are a few other editing issues such as question marks when there should be a period and the reverse as well. I noticed a few quotation marks that open but never close. Her work really needs editing, but it is not nearly as bad as some of the self published books I have read. THIS author shows a lot of promise.
A few words were incorrectly used such as week instead of weak, and whole instead of hole, but essentially the writing is good. It is the punctuation that needs work. The commas don't detract from the story too much, which is good, but the errors are quite noticeable. The author really needs to "brush up" on punctuation.
Overall I enjoyed the story (which I won't disclose as I don't believe in "spoilers") but the commas all over the place drove me nuts. There were some places that needed commas that did not have them as well. There were a couple of run on sentences too, but only one or two.
I encourage this author to keep writing, but to brush up on grammar/punctuation. Had there not been so many errors like that I would have given this a 4. I suspect this is self published. If it was not, the author needs to fire her editing staff.
A nice read, a decent plot, and a few surprises at the end. Don't let the punctuation problems stop you from reading the book--it won't even be noticed by most readers. Grammar and punctuation happen to be one of my pet peeves and it really separates the professionals from the amateurs.
This author could be a "pro" if she'd just brush up on English grammar and punctuation. I think she has a lot to offer and hope we see some more from her that is perfectly "polished".
It was refreshing to read about a familiar era that I had read about in my youth. Petticoat, corsette wearing ladies and gun slinging gentlmen and creeps. But what really held my interest was who was the guy in the white hat or was it the black hat? I had no idea for certain.
I loved the little romantic gestures from the male interest. But was fearful of Megan making the wrong decsions about avenging her father's death in this whole mess of western set story.
I loved it. It was easy to read on my Kindle while I exscpaed riding throuhg Nebraska with my thoughts while riding the old grey hound bus, (could have been a stage coach.)
