Physical attraction, budding romance, mistaken identities, and two private investigators intent on showing their worth in an increasingly dangerous situation make for a fast paced, lively western which is told with a well crafted mixture of drama, humor, and even some spiritual insight. I especially liked the short "detective" quotations which began each chapter, such as this one: Sign outside private detective's door. In God we trust, all others will be treated as suspects." (p.38)
I received a copy of Gunpowder Tea from Litfuse Publicity Group for review purposes. All opinions are mine. Litfuse and Thomas Nelson Publishing are sponsoring a blog tour of this book. Check out this link to learn more about Margaret Brownley's giveaway, her facebook party, and the other reviews.
More about the author
Thrills, mystery, suspense, romance: Margaret penned it all. Nothing wrong with this---except Margaret happened to be writing for the church newsletter at the time. After making the church picnic read like a Grisham novel, her former pastor took her aside and said, "Maybe God's calling you to write fiction." So that's what Margaret did. She's now a New York Times bestselling author and a Romance Writers of America RITA finalist with more than 25 novels to her credit. Her first non-fiction bookGrieving God's Way: the Lasting Path to Hope and Healing has won much critical acclaim. She is currently working on the third book in her Brides of Last Chance Ranch series. Not bad for someone who flunked 8th grade English. Just don't ask her to diagram a sentence.
