Crazy Woman Creek - Book Review

Okay, I REALLY liked this book! It's a self-published book written by Virginia Hull Welch and it just came out last month. Here's the scoop:

The story is set in Wyoming Territory in 1880. Lenora Rose's husband James walks out of their ranch house one night and never comes back. Lenora seeks the assistance of the local sheriff and deputy. Sheriff Moore thinks her husband drowned in a river, but Lenora is convinced that her husband is still alive. Deputy Davies, who thinks Lenora is pretty, wants to see the investigation through to help the poor almost-widow. But is Lenora telling the whole story about what happened the night her husband disappeared? And how convenient that the handsome Deputy Davies came along right before James Rose disappeared. Or could it be some of the drunk ranch hands that are always causing a ruckus in town? Who keeps sneaking around Lenora's ranch, scaring her and her dog? And is James really dead ... or still alive?

There are so many questions in this book, and I never wanted to put it down because I wanted to find out what was going to happen next. There's a mystery, there's a love story, and there's a great depiction of life in the "wild" west in the 1800s. If you like romance and historical fiction, then you'll like Crazy Woman Creek.

Side note: Apparently, there really IS a Crazy Woman Creek in Buffalo, Wyoming. Makes me want to read more about that!

Crazy Woman Creek is published by Virginia Hull Welch. It is available to purchase now. I received a free review copy for my honest opinion.
