    Christy Grey receives a telegram from her brother urging her to

    Christy Grey receives a telegram from her brother urging her to come an care for her ailing mother.  Christy had just gotten settled into her new life with new friends and employment in California but she figured this would be a perfect oppurtunity to reconcile with her mother.  On her long trip to Tombstone, as if the journey wasn't difficult to begin with, the stage coach gets robbed.  Then she no sooner arrives in Tombstone and her brother takes off for his wayward life of gambling leaving her to deal with her ailing mother.  There was little money and even worse there was an almost bare cupboard.  She would have to find some kind of employee right away, just to provide for their necessary needs.

    Nevada King is headed for Tombstone to begin a new life and hopefully acquire a wife and his own ranch.  He must stop for one more night before reaching his destination.  With luck, he thought, he rides up on a group of men that have camp set up for the night and hopes they would allow him a bite to eat and a place camp for the night.   But come morning it become apparent these men were not what he had assumed. He meets a lovely women during a stage holdup and then recognizes her latter on after he arrives in Tombstone.  Will Christy turn him into the law assuming he was part of the stage holdup or will outlaws catch up with him first to seek revenge?

    It was nice to see the author borrowed the character Christy Grey from her book Love Finds You in Last Chance, California.  She continues with Christy's life in a reconciliation attempt to build a new relationship with her mother and brother.  The author creates many situations which lead the young woman into a new relationship not only with her family but with a handsome cowboy and most importantly God.  This book has trust issues, revival of ones soul, and a mission to save a young women from a world of white slavery.
    Showing us how God provides for his children.

    I highly recommend this book. 

    I rated this book a 5 out of 5.

    Disclosure:  This book was a gift and I was not required to write a review. I was in no way compensated for this review.  This review is my honest opinion.

    Enjoyable

    Loved this story by Miralee Ferrell. I had the pleasure of visiting Tombstone, AZ two years ago and Mrs. Ferrell did an excellent job bringing the town to life before my eyes.It's a good western. Both Nevada, the hero, and Christy, the heroine, are likable characters fighting very real battles, both spiritual and physical. A great story that I would recommend to any lover of historical romance.

    a wonderful historical novel

    Christy Grey fled Tombstone, Arizona seeking a new beginning in California (see Love Finds You in Last Chance, California). In 1881, her brother Joshua sends a wire asking Christy to come home to help with their ailing mom. Dutiful and caring, she travels by stagecoach only to robbed and shot in her arm by the bandits.

    When she reaches Tombstone, Christy finds her brother addicted to gambling and no help to their sick mom. Having lost her money to the stagecoach robbers, she desperately needs to bring in cash. The only place willing to hire Christy is the gambling halls; just what she ran away from in the first place. She meets and recognizes Nevada King, who was involved in the holdup. They are attracted to one another and he would love to settle down with Christy, but besides the robbery, a gang of outlaws want him dead.

    The key to this Americana romance is Christy who as a single woman with a dancehall past struggles with her virtues as most males feel she is open season. Character driven by the courageous Christy and real persona like Doc Holiday and events like the stagecoach robbery, readers will appreciate this Love Finds You in a wonderful historical novel as Miralee Ferrell brings to life living as a single female in a frontier mining town just before the famous shootout.

    Love Finds You In Tombstone Arizona by Miralee Ferrell***** Chr

    Love Finds You In Tombstone Arizona by Miralee Ferrell*****

    Christy Grey leaves her friends in Last Chance California on a stagecoach to Tombstone Arizona after she receives a telegram from her younger brother, Joshua, that their mother is gravely ill and he needs help caring for her. While on the road the stagecoach is robbed and Christy is shot in the arm. One of the bandits helps her wrap her arm and asks her to promise not to give a description of him to the sheriff if he helps her. Finally arriving in Tombstone she tries to locate her brother since she does not know where they are living and needs him to take her to their mother. And she needs to see the doctor to have him look at her arm.

    Nevada King runs into trouble on his way to Tombstone where he had hopes of starting a new life working his own ranch and possibly settling down with a wife. He meets up with the stagecoach just as it is being robbed by the men who allowed him to stay in their camp the night before. They force him to help them, however he doesn't want any parts of a robbery but helps a young woman who had been shot.

    While in Tombstone Nevada and Christy meet and realize that he was the man who had helped her on the stagecoach. But Nevada isn't sure she will keep her promise and not describe him to the sheriff. Their paths continue to cross and they develop an attraction to each other. But what can ever come of it? Christy's mother is running out of money fast and Christy searches for a decent job to no avail. What is going to happen to her mother, brother and her if she can't find a job soon? And what of Nevada, can she trust him?

    This was a delightful story of reconciliation, struggles, fears, grief, forgiveness, love and faith. Historical facts of Tombstone of 1880's is complete with saloons, gambling and Doc Holiday which are woven through this story along with fictitious but realistic characters.

    A Must Read! Sweet Western Love Story

    Book Blurb: Love and second chances aren''t easy to come by in a town named Tombstone. When Christy Grey receives an urgent summons to Tombstone, Arizona, she reluctantly leaves her new life in California. The trip goes from bad to worse when four masked men hold up Christy's stage. She finally arrives in
    Tombstone to find her mother ill and her brother trapped in a life of gambling. Desperate for money to support her family, will Christy bow to pressure from the local saloon owners and return to the life she thought she'd given up for good?

    Nevada King has problems of his own. He''s been dodging bullets for years and wants nothing more than to settle down and get married. But he''s on the run from outlaws bent on revenge, and the one woman who captures his interest recognizes him from the stagecoach holdup. Will Christy turn Nevada in to the authorities, or will the outlaws on his trail catch him first?
    My Review

    Christy Grey has started her life over fresh and new in California and she never wants to go back to her old life in a dance hall again. When her brother contacts her about their mother's illness, her California life comes to an end and Christy heads to Arizona to take care of her sick mom. Because of a stagecoach robbery, Christy arrives in Tombstone injured and with no money. To make matters worse, she finds her brother in a gambling hall and is surprised with the horror of finding the home her mom and brother living in a shack that looks like it's about to fall down. What on earth happened to land them living in a place like this?

    Nevada King seems to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. He didn't want to be involved in the stagecoach robbery, but was he going to be involved anyway? Or was he really in the right place at the right time because a pretty lady needed help after she was shot, and he was able to play doctor and fix her arm so she could continue traveling to Tombstone? One thing he did know, he was through living his former life. He was now ready to settle down and make something good of the life he had left.

    Enjoy this wonderful western as you follow the sweet romance between Nevada and Christy, Joshua and Sara in the little town of Tombstone Arizona. Experience the magnificent view of Tombstone and experience their lifestyle, meet their people and feel the personality of their community as the author so brilliantly brings to life in this book.

    This was not a book I rec'd free to read for a review. I purchased this book to read for myself, and posted the review on my own. The opinions in the review are mine only.

    A Sweet Inspirational Story for a Light Reading Experience!

    Miralee Ferrell quickly became one of my favorite authors, last year, when I read her novel Love Finds You in Bridal Veil Oregon. Her writing style and unique characters quickly worked there way into my heart. I then had the pleasure of reviewing her contemporary fiction novels Finding Jeena and The Other Daughter, as well as another Love Finds You book (Love Finds You in Last Chance California). I've been hooked ever since and was so pleased to have the opportunity to read and review Love Finds You in Tombstone Arizona.

    LFY in Tombstone, Arizona is a sweet western that picks up exactly were Last Chance California left off. Christy, whom we met in Last Chance with Justin and Alex, is on her way home to her ailing mother and her younger brother, when her stage is held up. She is one of the unfortunate ones and is shot in the arm. Enter Nevada King. His sweet and adorable character put him in the wrong place at the wrong time, yet he was fortunate enough to help Christy out by doctoring up her arm so she can make it into Tombstone.

    I could go on and on about their story, but if I do, I'll give away the plot line and spoil the story for Miralee's fans. So, I'll stop there. But, what I will tell you is this: not only was this story a sweet and funny, and altogether faith-filled, it's filled with so many other things, like the wonderful Doc Holliday, the OK Corral, Wyatt and Virgil Earp and so many other things that you hear about from History.

    I highly recommend this book to everyone. The added suspense makes it a bonus, along with learning to fully rely on and trust God. Being in the middle of Tombstone, watching the instant attraction between Christy and Nevada, and seeing the characters grown in a friendship that includes the reader, was fantastic. Most definitely worthy of 5 stars and so much more!

    Romance in the old west

    Miralee Ferrell's books are a delight to this reader. From her historic Love Finds You books to her contemporary The Other Daughter and Finding Jeena, Miralee delivers a compelling story that entertains and satisfies.

    Her latest accomplishment, Love Finds You in Tombstone, Arizona, unfolds a romantic tale set against the backdrop of one of the old west's most notorious historic towns. If you are drawn to the intriguing personality of the rugged denizens of frontier days with a questionable history and the ladies whose pasts are less than stellar, you must read this book.

    Miralee delves into the life of character Christy Grey beyond her appearance in Love Finds You in Last Chance, California. When Christy is called home, she not only finds her brother unreliable to help with her ailing mother, but encounters outlaws during a stagecoach holdup on her journey. Her dilemma worsens when she promises one of the outlaws involved to keep his identity a secret when it is revealed to her. Christy's problems and her past serve as a stumbling block to the dreams she hopes to someday fulfill.

    Nevada King has dreams of his own. Yet, circumstances beyond his control put him in a bad light to Christy, the woman for whom he feels a growing attraction. He also lives in constant danger of pursuit by outlaws who are out for revenge. As Nevada proves himself to be a friend not only to Christy, but also to her family and a saloon girl looking for a way out of the sordid life that has trapped her, Christy's heart softens toward him.

    Miralee has interwoven real life documented historical occurrences with her fictitious but believable characters. She has crafted a story that deposits the reader smack dab in the midst of the old west in the late nineteenth century.

    A must read!!!

    I enjoyed this book so much! I would call it a western historical romance book. Christy Grey is summoned home by her brother to care for their ill mother in Tombstone, AZ. She really doesn't want to leave her new life in California but the strong feelings for family coerce her to going. She finally arrives in AZ and learns she not only has to care for her mother who is ill but has to find a job to support them as well. The brother has lost her mother's money gambling. Things worsen but in the end she learns that God does provide.
