Not a favorite but it was entertaining. I would probably read another of Lise McClendon's books. Mostly I read this book because I grew up in the town where the story took place. Enjoyed revisiting places I was familar with. The descriptions in the book were very accurate.
For those interested in the west, art, indian lore, mystery..You will love it!
