Spirit Ridge

L. A.

WESTERN:  Nell Bishop has a nose for investigating and the gumption to defy convention. Not willing to live under the constraints of the 1880s standards for women, she takes a job as a reporter for the San Francisco Dispatch. When she discovers that successful businessman Colin Doyle is conducting illicit business deals and planning to expand his evil domain, Nell takes the witness who can unmask Doyle and flees to Arizona for safety. However, Nell is going to need the help of Marshal Sam Tanner of Spirit Ridge to reach her goal. 


Taking place in the late 1880s, this historical romance takes the reader on an adventure that stretches from the streets of San Francisco to the wilderness of the Arizona Territory. With a giant leap out of the starting gate, this novel begins the action from the very first page and doesn’t let up until the last word is read. The ending is somewhat rushed, however the well-developed characters and smooth, even flowing pace keeps one engaged and entertained from beginning to end. Non-stop action, Native American spirits and visions, along with a clean and heartwarming love story, combine to make this an unforgettable novel that historical reading buffs and romance lovers will find a boon to their libraries.
