Spirit Ridge

Spirit Ridge 
L.A. Kelley
May 2016

San Francisco in 1885 is a dangerous place for investigative newspaper reporter Nell Bishop. She’s uncovered a crime lord’s corrupt empire and heads to the Arizona Territories to stop the plan to extend his evil dominion to the West. As a woman in man’s world, she locked her heart to romantic distractions, but could Marshal Sam Tanner hold the key? 

Sam Tanner fought the visions sent by his Apache blood. They always foretold an inevitable death. Then he dreamed of the coyote with golden brown eyes who warned of a black shadow spreading evil across the territory. Had the spirits linked Sam’s fate to the beautiful woman with the golden brown eyes who stepped off the stagecoach? Can Sam help Nell elude the mysterious dark riders who dog her trail or will the next vision mean death for both? 

Between The Pages 
An interesting western with added elements to keep you turning the pages. The plot not only focuses on a western romance, but includes action, suspense, and a native spirit guide. The story line was well written and captivating. Nell and Sam have an endearing chemistry and their strength commands the story. The dialogue is smooth with a bit of humour that will make you smile. The secondary characters are equally important to this story, such as Sam’s grandparents, and Sam’s friend who finds love as well. The action and suspense were perfect, placing the reading in the story. A very enjoyable read.
