Review: Mail Order Cowboy

Mail Order Cowboy (Love Inspired Historical)Mail Order Cowboy by Laurie Kingery

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Laurie Kingery wrote a Western with a new twist! Mail order theme books are popular, but Kingery sets the scene with a husband coming to town instead of a bride. Mail Order Cowboy is the first in a series entitled Brides of Simpson Creek.

In addition to a traditional Western tale, the Civil War has ended and young men are scarce in the town of Simpson Creek. The Matthews sisters are running a ranch with help from their few hands. Milly and Sarah band together with the Ladies Aide Society and form the Simpson Creek Society for the Promotion of Marriage. Others in town simply refer to the group as the "Spinster Society." Enter the first mail order cowboy...Nicholas Brookfield from England. I'll let you finish the rest of the tale. I look forward to Kingery's next installment in this new series.

What doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God. ~ Micah 6:8

Time Period: Western, 1860's

Review: Rats on the Page

Rats on the Page (Return to the Library of Doom)Rats on the Page by Michael Dahl

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Return to the Library of Doom! When I saw the title at my local library, I was trilled! I thought the Library of Doom was at an end. Lo, and behold, on the children's shelf, was a new library book. Michael Dahl created a wonderful easy reader with suspense, adventure, magic and rodents. Many readers love to discover dark sides, especially in literature, not so much in reality. I found this title uniquely dark for myself, because I am not a fan of rodents. If you enjoy a good rodent book, pick up Rats on the Page for a quick read. I look forward to discovering more books in this new series.

If you missed the original Library of Doom series by Michael Dahl, I would encourage you to go back and read the first series.
