I've always liked a good western. This one is a sequel to High Country Justice which I read and loved this past summer. In this one, Caleb Marlowe has to deal with squatters on his land illegally mining for silver, cattle rustlers, outlaws, a corrupt judge, and the man who murdered his mother when he was sixteen....his own father. He also has to deal with his growing feelings for the lovely Sheila Burnett.
"(Sheila) had forced his eyes open to see and recognize who he was. Caleb Marlowe was a gunslinger, a fighter, and a killer when the need arose. And that was fine. This was the frontier. This was the life that he'd chosen and that Sheila was trying to find a place in. They were not as different as he'd thought. They were survivors."

When I decided to participate in Susan's Bookish Books Reading Challenge last January, I had a list of 20 books that I wanted to read for it. And I came really close. Out of those 20 books, I DNFed two of them, wasn't in the mood for two others, and one that I really wanted to read ended up having so many holds on it by the time I went to check it out of the library there's no way I'll get a copy of it until sometime next year. But I read the rest of them. (Drumroll, please!) Here are the 15 bookish books I read this year:

"Eve stands to inherit a fortune if she is sound in mind, but it seems that something - or someone - is threatening her sanity. Holmes and Watson travel to the Allerthorpe family seat at Fellscar Keep to investigate, but soon discover that there is more to the case than at first appeared. There is another spirit haunting the family, and when a member of the household is found dead, the companions realise that no one is beyond suspicion."

My sister and I had so much fun writing this one; we hope to start writing the sequel to it next year...because Zeb's and Mariah's and Moose's story is not done. (Moose is the dog; he's awesome!)
