The BEST 'McKenzie'!
I have read and enjoyed the complete McKenzie series. A word for all who have read the McKENZIES - Josh is the BEST by far. I HOPE Ms. Leigh follows with more of this most interesting family!

Excellent western romance
In 1890 Long Island, heiress Emily Lawrence informs her father Hiram that she will not marry just because he insists she do so. She knows how poorly her father treated her now deceased mother and vows to not fall into the same trap. However, Hiram lays down an ultimatum that she either picks a spouse or he will select one for her. Emily decides to flee west as a Harvey Girl working in a restaurant near the train stations even if she cannot cook. <P>Pinkerton Agent Josh Mackenzie is assigned the job of finding the runaway Emily and return her and the fortune she stole to her father. Josh knows this job is a snap because how difficult is it to capture and escort an Eastern debutante? He will soon learn the hard way that taking Emily home will prove to be his most difficult task ever because she refuses to cooperate and they are now in love with one another. <P>THE MACKENZIES: JOSH is an entertaining western romance that brings America in the last decade of the nineteenth century to life. The story line is fun and humorous as Emily thwarts every effort Josh tries to complete his obligation. The relationship between the lead charcaters makes the tale wonderful even as the support cast provides the color behind the plot. Ana Leigh writes a tale that when compared holds up to the sterling works of the previous generation of Mackenzies. <P>Harriet Klausner
