Samantha Williams has two big problems. The first is that her father intends to force her to marry an older wealthy man that will boost the family's standing in Chicago society. The second is that if he has his way, Samantha will lose her lover, Charlotte Harte, a lovely Southern girl whose family moved to Chicago to escape the ravages of the Civil War. Of course, Samantha takes the bold way out, riding away with Charlotte astride their horses, disguised by wearing men's clothing.
They soon realize, though, that life astride a horse on the road through the Wild West is not a bed of roses, especially for the tender Charlotte. But what the two saddle sore young women lack in hardened trail smarts, they make up for in spunk and a repertoire of trick shooting and whip cracking talents they use to hide in plain sight while they continue their journey to San Francisco, meeting a passel of famous 19th Century Western characters, even as they are pursued by a smart and dedicated Pinkerton agent who has taken the contract to bring Samantha back to her father.
Sugar Lee Ryder and JD Cutler make a fabulous team, expertly cooking up a large plate of yummy reader cookies in a page turner of a fast paced book with lots of breath taking cliff hangers. They skillfully lead the two girls through a charming and sweet love story set in a rip roaring adventure that forces them to blossom into women willing to fight for their dreams and each other.
