I Love a Good Mystery!

Awesome New Book!


I’m having so much fun reading A Bride’s Portrait of Dodge City, Kansas by author, Erica Vetsch. My own writing has delayed my reading a little, so I’ll have a review by next week, (LOVE the spunky main character!) but for today, I wanted to share all the information that I learned about this historical fiction. I was chomping at the bit to read it!

This summary was taking directly from the author’s website. You can find it HERE.

Quench your craving for good fiction with this wonderfully written Old West adventure. Hoping to leave the shadows of her shady yesteryears behind, Adeline Reid is focusing on her photography career. But when her ex-boyfriend’s compatriot in crime shows up in Dodge City her entire past is threatened by exposure. Can Addie keep her secrets while helping to catch a killer? Deputy Miles Carr’s investigation into a shopkeeper’s murder leads him to Addie’s door. Will his attraction to this female photographer keep him from catching the true culprit? Or will Addie lead him off course in more ways than one?
Deputy Miles Carr has his hands full trying to keep the peace in Dodge City and find a local shopkeeper’s killer. When his inquiries lead him to the door of Addie Reid’s photography studio, he finds himself more than a little distracted. Does this beauty hold the clue to the killer’s identity?

(I swear the model on the cover reminds me of Alyssa Milano, the gal that starred as Tony Danza’s daughter in the sit-com “Who’s the Boss.”) And, for as much as I’ve gotten to read of it, the heroine in the story has some of the same personality traits as Milano’s character, like her strength and willingness to take a risk. I look forward to putting more reading time in!

You can purchase a copy of this great book for yourself at this link for Christian Book Distributors. Come back next week for my review!
