This was a very easy read for me. I guess I would categorize it as a “light read”. I enjoyed the story and the characters. I found it to be very fast-paced and at times I felt it could have slowed down a little but overall it was a good story. It is book one of Maggie Brendan’s Virtues and Vices of the Old West series. I will be on the lookout for the other books.
