Set in the 1800’s, Anna Finch and the Hired Gun by Kathleen Y’Barbo captures the reader’s attention with the odd combination of the typical female heroine, placed in rather bizarre situations. Anna Finch is of marrying age but doesn’t care for any husband her father has picked out for her. In fact, she would much rather spend her days writing dime novels and newspaper articles for the Denver Times using her alias. However, her avoidance of love gets more difficult when she meets Jeb Sanders.

After Anna accidentally shoots a man on her wild and prohibited morning ride with her horse Maisie, her father hires a detective to play the role of babysitter to his daughter until he can marry her off. Anna soon discovers that the handsome Pinkerton detective and the man she shot are one in the same. Although they have feelings for each other, they have difficulty getting along. Anna can’t stand Jeb’s attempts to squash her dream of writing about the infamous murderer Doc Holliday, and Jeb is annoyed at having to follow Anna across Colorado on her hunt for the very man he wants to kill.

Throughout the novel, Jeb battles with his desire to bring justice to Doc Holliday, the man who murdered his wife. He made a vow that he would avenge his wife’s death before he became a Christian, before he learned that only God can bring justice to men. Despite this, vengeance is still on his mind no matter how much he tries to restrain it. Y’Barbo does an excellent job of depicting Jeb's struggle with God as he is tempted more than once to pull the trigger on Doc Holliday.

Anna Finch and the Hired Gun moves at a quick pace, never once leaving the reader feeling abandoned among a carnage of words. The delivery is easy to read and fun, creating an upbeat mood that kept me reading until the end. I would recommend this novel to anyone looking for a snippet of entertainment and a good laugh. – Kyla Sele,

    Kathleen YBarbo

    This was my favorite book of the series. In fact, I read it in one day, I was enjoying it so much. It features a handsome, faith-filled Pinkerton detective Jeb Sanders hired to watch the spunky Anna Finch, whom her father believes causes so much trouble she cant catch a man.

    Jeb believes he has been assigned the worst case ever to babysit *some rich girl instead of catching thieves and murderers and following leads on the ruthless Doc Holliday (whom he has a personal vendetta against).

    Anna, by all appearances, is *just that. But, secretly she is a published author, and a girl whos heart desires riding the open plain from time-to-time, not sitting around wasting her days stitching and her nights at social events. She is also the last of 5 daughters and the only one not married. Her father intends to remedy that as soon as possible and has hired the Pinkerton Detective Agency to guard his willful daughter and keep her out of trouble, until such time as she is properly wed. The story starts off with a bang (literally), and Jeb and Anna are thrown together in an unexpected way. His job is made exceedingly difficult when she makes the acquaintance of Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday, and begins friendships with them. The story involves lots of sneaking around and even a healthy dose of danger, which was most enjoyable. For a faith-filled novel, I liked that the author gave us a little more danger and a little more passion than some authors of this genre without crossing the lines, in my opinion.

    This book also contains short quotes at the top of each chapter regarding Doc Holliday and Wyatt Earp, my favorite being This is funny. Doc Hollidays reported last words. Ch. 8, pg. 73.

    Additionally, there are historical facts about them listed in the back of the book.

    I was loaned this copy. My opinion is my own and without compensation. I give it a 5 star rating, and recommend to others who enjoy historical, Christian novels particularly western.

    Anna Finch and the Hired Gun is not just a cowboy story--not even close. Toward the end of reading it, I realized there hadn't been a dull moment to the book. It didn't have a slow start, no plodding middle, and it had a wonderfully satisfying end.

    It ranks near the top of my list of favorites, The historical background to the book showed that a lot of research had been done and was woven into the story. I especially enjoyed the quotes at the beginning of the chapters. The humor was wonderful, as well.

    This book kept me reading late and made me anxious to reach the end, but I also wanted to just keep reading more from Kathleen Y'Barbo from this time period. I knew it would be good when I saw her name.

    A delightful story of a young woman who defies conventional society to become a journalist. Upon meeting Doc Holliday and writing a series of articles about him she soon finds she may have more in her life than she bargained for. When her father finds out about her "un-lady like" behavior he hires a Jeb Saunders to keep her out of trouble which of course is when the read trouble starts.

    This is the first book I have read by this author and I have to say I have truly enjoyed every minute of it. One of my favorite parts were the Doc Holliday interviews. I thought those added a very realistic touch.

    A very cute story. One small annoying thing is the ebook file does not include the cover picture as the first page but a green and white text only page. I'll still read other ebooks by this author though.
