Honey Beaulieu needs more cash for her personal living and to help the ever-growing collection of downtrodden people she has come to care for. Honey’s older sister, Louisa, is due to birth her baby in Silver City, Idaho Territory, and it just so happens that Boyce McNitt is only a couple hundred miles south of there. Honey could collect the large county on McNitt and be with her sister. It should be a win-win situation.
Honey has had her fill of dealing with Marshal Fripp and she never cared for the deputy marshal title anyhow. It was time to follow in her father’s footsteps and become a full time bounty hunter. Of course, the unexpected always happens. Honey finds herself in Winnemucca and arrested for violating the gun ordinance. When Honey refuses to enter Pickles in an upcoming race, someone claims that Honey stole his racing mule. (That man’s name sure sounds familiar to Honey.) The only really good thing is that Honey runs into U.S. Deputy Marshal Sam Lancaster again.
**** FOUR STARS! If you have not read the first title in this series, you will still fully enjoy this western. Readers that have will be reunited with fun secondary characters and meet some new ones. Of course, Honey’s donkey (Sassy), mule (Pickles), as well as the ghost of Roscoe Peevey, still cause ruckus, but each help her in their own special way.
From the first page until the last I was kept thoroughly entertained. I was unwilling to stop reading and actually rescheduled my day so that I did not have to. Stellar! ****

As one might expect, all kinds of men get in Honey’s way, but it isn’t just Pickles who can show a stubborn streak. Jacquie Rogers’ newest release, "Sidetracked in Silver City," is as full of humor and colorful western dialogue as any saddle bruising, gun-toting tale could be.
The story begins in crisis and with a familiar sense of frustration, as Honey Beaulieu, intent on leaving town as soon as possible and catching her next bounty, is confronted with problem after problem rooting her in place. Rogers is talented in keeping the dialogue moving, even as Honey is often lost in her own thoughts or speaking to a ghost that only she can see, named Roscoe who hangs out with a with a three-legged ghost horse named Luther, naturally.
Honey’s big heart is on every page as she strives to make enough money to buy a future for herself and others. Talking to her animal companions as if they are humans isn’t all that peculiar for Honey – especially when a racing mule, a bonnet-wearing donkey, a surprise goat, and more than one horse all seem to understand. And while carrying multiple guns and knowing darn well how to shoot them builds the tough outer layer the world sees when they look upon Honey, her aim is to never have to use them. It takes her big, handsome admirer, Sam Lancaster, to see that soft inside of her soul.
From Silver City to Fry Pan Gulch, Honey wrestles with being in the right place at the right time, whether it’s missing the morning train or being there in time to hold her sister’s hand when she gives birth. For anyone who has ever fought the clock and lost the battle, Honey’s exasperation is palpable. We want her to “get her man” no matter what it takes, and Rogers is quite good at building the dramatic tension with the many characters that both complicate Honey’s plans and endear us to her in this wild, wild west she calls home.
