Editorial Reviews


Playful and funny secondary characters lighten things up, and eventhe judgmental church ladies prove teachable. Brownley strikes a finebalance of humor and realism, not glossing over the darker side of theWild West as she explores childhood abuse, broken families, and doublestandards.
(Publishers Weekly 2014-10-01)

Brownley's story, based loosely Kate Warne's life (A real-lifefemale detective), is a fresh look at a historical period on theAmerican frontier.  Set against a backdrop of America's oldestprofession Ms. Brownley takes on a story that is both uplifting andheartbreaking.  The characters are realistically written andmulti-layered. This looks to be a great new series.
(Michele Hagenlock RT Book Reviews 2014-11-13)

A careful blend of mystery and hilarity make this both an excitingand charming read. I loved the characters: the depth of emotions as theauthor subtly considered the lives and times of "sporting women", andthe bonds of friendship that surmount the obstacles of class. It wasn'tan easy read, but it was a cleansing one, for both the characters andthe readers. The dialogue and dialects were as amusing and distinctiveas the characters. The twists and turns of the plot sinister and varied, without blocking out hope or love.
