She made a good story out of unknowns. I'll read the next in the series to see where it goes from here. A mystery, murder, romance, poker faces, espionage and more. Picture a heroine reminiscent of Victoria and Audra Barkley. There were times where it dragged as a slow drawl, but then it would pick up again leaving you not knowing who to believe. The end is a bit rough for those with sensititve stomach. Kirsten Potter does a great job of narrating! Although at one point I thought the book dragged, I ended up enjoying the mixture of mystery, romance, western and historical fiction.
It was good to have a strong woman protagonist, and mixed race characters. View all 3 comments. Jan 08, Xyra rated it really liked it Recommended to Xyra by: Lida. Very interesting. Great for historical fiction and mystery lovers. The setting is great! I've never been to Leadville, Colorado a real town , but I have been to Virginia City, Nevada so I could easily picture the town layout, the business streets, residential areas, church, opera house, and outlying mines.
The best part is the author didn't try to make it Hollywood pretty.
She gave us all the muck and mire one would encounter in a time without indoor plumbing or paved roads. Inez is a good hear Very interesting. Inez is a good hearted woman who has some business sense. She owns and runs a saloon with her partner, Abe. When a friend turns up dead outside the back door of her business the wheels start turning to figure out who killed Joe and why. The journey is not without peril; in fact, the story is filled with action, adventure, intrigue, and even a bit of fluff aka romance. I don't understand why she made some of the decisions she made and wish we had more details, but they may have cluttered up the main plot.
Plus adding some details may have muddied the biographies of real people who show up in Inez's life. Bat Masterson makes an appearance; he's written more handsomely than the images found online. This isn't quite a "cozy" mystery. This is a step or two up with regards to violence and lawlessness.
While our main character is openminded in some regards, she can be quite cruel in others. Inez is no Miss Marple or Nancy Drew. The entire story is quite exciting. When you think one clue is figured out a nifty little twist comes along.

However, I did figure out one thing long before Inez did and kept yelling at her when her line of thinking returned to the forefront. So if you routinely read mysteries, you might have this somewhat solved early on. Don't let that deter you from enjoying the rest of the story. It's a worthwhile read. I really liked this book. The story is well written and filled with intrigue; setting well described; and characters believable. Near the end I didn't want to put it down and am suffering slightly from sleep deprivation because of it. She shoots, plays poker, owns a salon along with her partner Abe, a free black man, and has a husband who has been missing for eight months.
When local assay-agent Joe Ross is found dead in the alley next to Inez' saloon, she promises to help his pregnant widow and son settle Joe's business interests. What she finds are secrets, greed, graft, danger and an attraction to J. B Sands, a minister—or is he? Her descriptions of 's Leadville are vivid and integral to the story. Her characters are diverse, real, interesting and fully developed.
Inez is a smart, independent woman, capable of holding her own yet will doubts and insecurities of her own. Her dialogue is appropriate to the period. The plot is interesting and compelling; it caused me to read way too late into the night in order to finish it in one read. There is a romance, but it doesn't overwhelm the story or the character and very good suspense.

I also liked how the author wove in some social issues of the era voting rights for women, contraception, prostitution - you could write a whole book about those topics, but she addressed them and moved on but it was still very effective.
