Book Description(From Amazon)

 April 27, 2014
Murder, mayhem, marriage, and a horse named Mutiny… Minnie’s impulsiveness has been getting her into trouble her whole life. She never expected it to land her on a suspect list for murder, though. With nothing left but a few trunks of possessions and her own defeat, Minnie leaves San Francisco behind and returns home. In an effort to protect her family and friends, she keeps them in the dark about the ongoing investigation and the possibility that danger may have followed her to Larkspur. When events force her to trust someone with her secrets, she turns to the sheriff and finds both a friend and an ally. It may have been four years since he last saw Minnie, but how could he ever forget her? When Art finds her sneaking through a back alley in town, he knows something’s wrong. The once vivacious Minnie is a mere shadow of her former self, all sparkle gone from her eyes. Art knows that time spent with her will be dangerous to his heart, but he can’t turn Minnie away. Even if it means protecting her from her own impetuous decisions, he vows to keep her safe. In her attempt to take responsibility for her own choices, Minnie shut out her friends, fami-ly, and God. An unsolved murder isn’t all that’s chasing Minnie, though. Will she find her way back to the heart of her faith before it’s too late?
#3 in THE LADIES OF LARKSPUR series, but can be read a stand alone. Murder, mayhem, romance, redemption, faith, danger, healing, and finding true love. Oh, yes, a horse named Mutiny, you gotta love it that name. Fast paced, powerful, compelling and intriguing tale with plenty of drama, suspense, and mystery. You will adore Minnie, she has been though so much and betrayed by one who should have loved her, her husband, who was killed, which left her as a suspect and in grave danger but stayed strong and determined. I wager, that was no great loss, sorry, her husband’s murder, that is. I enjoyed the the chemistry between Minnie and Art, his protective nature toward Minnie, his old childhood friend, his strong faith and their attraction to each other. The secondary definitely help carry the story. The setting was great as well. The writing was interesting, enjoyable and made for a very satisfying read. Historical Romance readers, as well as Western Romance readers should be satisfied with this tale.
