Whispers on the Wind based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
It was a very exciting, well written story. I would purchase another book by this author.
Mary Costner's mother had left her half the share of a gold mine in Gregory Gulch, Colorado Territory. Mary's partner was Big Jim McCoy, a huge Irishman with a mean temper. To Mary, however, he was the father she never had. Mary dressed as a boy and went by the name of Mark so all the other miners would not bother her. The two hit several veins of gold. Every time they considered quitting, another vein showed up. Then one morning Mary woke up with a huge lump on her head, a knife in her hand, and blood everywhere. Big Jim had been murdered and Mary could remember nothing of the night before. Unable to do anything else, and determined to clear her name, Mary ran. She did not get too far before her horse threw her. Mary became unconscious in a snow drift. ....................... U.S. Marshal Carter Monroe had the nickname 'Coldhearted Monroe'. He and his deputy, Rick McCallum, were on the way to see Carter's mother. Carter Monroe was one of the best at his job, but he was always on the lookout for The Carlson Gang, who had killed his sister long ago. Carter had managed to kill three of the five men thus far. They found Mary nearly dead. Carter cared for her until they reached Judith, his mother. ................. Finding herself in the home of a U.S. Marshal, Mary pretended to remember nothing but her name. She just wanted time to figure out what to do. In the meantime, Mary would help Judith. (Even with an opera!) And hot upon her trail was John McCoy and the two evil gunslingers, Sammy and Randy Carlson! ........................ ***** This is the last book in the Misfit series. The author, somehow, was able to make me care for all the characters throughout the entire trilogy. Each book is a stand-alone story, but if you read all three you will see just how brightly the writing talent of Brenda K. Jernigan shines! Past characters, such as Thunder, return for an encore. Be warned that there is a lot of adventure in the fast paced novel, so do not begin reading until you have plenty of time with no interruptions. Unputdownable! *****
