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.
"Anna Finch and the Hired Gun" was fun and humorous! I had a hard time putting it down! I didn't know what to expect at first as I've never read the author but she had me hooked from the very beginning! It was very well written and the characters were likable. I found myself rooting for Anna as she did her own thing now matter what anyone thought! Even though her father was against it as well as the hired gun, Jeb, she still did what was against the norm during that time period. Definitely a read again book as well as author!
