Once again, Beverly Jenkins has given us a wonderfully entertaining story. This author never fails to deliver to the reader. I enjoyed this book from the beginning to the end. Ian Vance Bigelow, aka Preacher, is known throughout the West as a bible quoting bounty hunter, Marshall, and a lawyer. Maggie is a strong, independent woman who has experienced more than her share of hard knocks but she has persevered through it all.
Maggie was wrongfully arrested for killing her would-be molester after he was accidentally killed while she was defending herself. Her attacker’s father was a prominent member in the community and he railroaded the Sheriff into arresting her even with the evidence clearly showing that it was an accident. The Sheriff wanted her to get a fair trial so he decided to change the venue of trial. He asked for Preacher’s help in transporting Maggie to the new venue because he knows that Preacher would get her there alive. I won’t spoil the fun for readers who have not read this book yet but these two will encounter trouble coming from the past, present, and future. Riding along with our Maggie and Preacher was just thrilling and captivating. But as usual, love conquers all and Maggie will finally get the happy life that she deserves.
I give this story two thumbs up and I can’t wait for Ms. Jenkins’ next book.
