Nick Stolter had found peace, comfort with a good woman and put down roots into the lush, green land where his quarter horses grazed. His son and daughters were quick-witted and handsome like their mother but had gained an instinctual cunning from him. Deep inside him was the knowledge that his family was the best thing he had ever done.
The guns hung dusty and quiet in a cabinet in the barn behind a padlock. The younger times of chasing payroll lockboxes and gold carrying stagecoaches seemed a secret lifetime ago. Until one day, a dark shadow from his past rode into the yard firing up the lure of one last easy job.
Quiet common sense wrestled with flashy, loud desire. The buckskin roan saddled, twin Colts cleaned and holstered, and Nick took one long look at home, then turned and headed north. Liquid courage from a bottle fueled his emerging streak of recklessness.
What would he sacrifice to bring money back to the family? Could he pull of the job, and make it back home in one piece or would a bullet stop him?

She’s a sucker for children under three and anyone in their 90’s. She will happily put you on hold until next week. Every book she writes feels like her first one.

Ok, so I read the one review and decided I had to see for myself if it could be that bad. I didn't make it past page two. Terrible writing style and difficult to understand.
This would be an excellent book with a little editing. The story is great, but some of the grammar and spelling is terrible.
I’m usually not a big fan of westerns, or essentially really any reads with even the slightest of western influence. So, that being said, I was quite surprised after giving this book an admittedly half-hearted gamble of how much I truly enjoyed the read and it has not only left me more than satisfied but also changed how I will view these kinds of books in the genre in the future. I think what really had me hooked within this story would have to be the protagonist, Nick. I can’t say for sure what it is but I couldn’t help but find myself relating to him in so many different ways throughout the read. This caught me off guard as I rarely find myself connecting to protagonists, especially not those who live in a time period far from what I am accustomed to. Overall, I am impressed with the read and I hope to see more by author Lee Anne Wonnacott in the future.
Was hard to read lots of spelling and sentences that made no sense, stupid ending. Story didn't or make much sense. Won't read this author again. For a free book it was terrible author needs another profession.
