    A flirty Anne of Green Gables-like character--catastrophe lies in her wake

    In 1880 America, socialite Eugenia Cooper's life is all mapped out, including a marriage to rich banker Chandler Dodd. But this lover or western dime novels longs for an adventure of her own. When the opportunity arises, she jumps a train to Denver, Colorado to pose as a governess for ten-year-old Charlotte Beck. What she discovers in Denver, however, can hardly be called a girl. The grubby thing not only wears britches and refuses to bathe, she stole Eugenia's pocketbook before Eugenia even left the train station.

    Then she meets a handsome man at the local store and wonders if this western adventure won't have a little romance. What she didn't expect was that she would be thrust into a scandal that would not only ruin her good name, but that of Charlotte's father, Daniel Beck. What's a girl to do?

    Eugenia reminds me of a flirty Anne of Green Gables. She never intends to get herself into such mischief, but time after time, catastrophe lay in her wake. I couldn't help but like her naiveté and root that everything would work out perfectly for her in the end. I didn't much enjoy the excerpts from the Mae Winslow dime novels that started each chapter and stopped reading them about halfway through. I was just so caught up in Eugenia's story that I didn't care a bit about ol' Mae Winslow and her horse Lucky. Still, this is wild west romance fun, so if you like that sort of novel, you must read this one. Fun, fun, fun.
