Genre: Inspirational/historical

Anna Finch has so far escaped all her father’s plans to marry her off. But now, it seems her father has taken his desire to see her wed too far, as he has hired a Pinkerton agent to trail her and be her hired gun, keeping her safe and, supposedly out of trouble.

If Jeb Sanders thought that keeping Anna Finch out of trouble would be an easy job, he had much to reconsider. The first time he meets her, he is shot in the side. And then he catches her meeting up with the infamous Doc Holliday and Wyatt Earp. Convinced that she is an informant for them, Jeb has to work double time to keep her in his sight.

If Anna has any dreams of writing the truth about Doc Holliday then she has her work cut out for her. Between her father trying to sell her off like prized-horseflesh to an unsuspecting groom, and the hired gun trailing her every move, getting the story is more complicated than she ever dreamed.

ANNA FINCH AND THE HIRED GUN is the sequel to The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper. I absolutely loved The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper so was thrilled to find that ANNA FINCH AND THE HIRED GUN is more of the same lighthearted, humorous and totally engaging writing.

I couldn’t put ANNA FINCH AND THE HIRED GUN down. I literally fell in love with both Anna and with Jeb, and especially enjoyed the sparks that ignited between the two of them. Having a real life person, Doc Holliday, making appearances in the pages of the book was an unexpected bonus. I thoroughly enjoyed reading ANNA FINCH AND THE HIRED GUN and highly recommend this book. $13.99. 325 pages.
