This is a book that was sitting on my shelf waiting to be read and I really enjoyed it! The adventure, action and romance was very interesting and clean for ladies 16 and up.

This book is about a young women trying to escape her husbands killer. After moving to a small town and starting a dress shop, Charlotte thinks she escaped the ‘baron’, but raising her young son alone is getting harder by the day with all her lies. Then ranch owner and future politician Barrett Landry steps in, and now Charlotte is worried about much more than being found by the murderer; she’s worried she may lose her heart…

This book was super sweet and fun. I very much enjoyed the plot line, the characters were very well written, and the mystery was engaging! I totally suggest this book to young ladies 16 and up who love a good historical mystery out west.

Now there are some adult topics mentioned. Mention of women of the night, (and some rude words to describe them) mention of men getting their way and so on. Nothing is described but it is mentioned throughout the novel. There is some violence, mention of murder, knifes, guns and such. The violence is not overly described but it is mentioned.

Overall, this is such a great book for ladies 16 and up! I loved the story, I loved the characters, I loved the book!!!! I totally suggest it and I hope you all have a nice day. -The Young Llama Reader.
