The Silver Shawl by: Elisabeth Grace Foley

The Silver Shawl is set in Colorado in the late 1800's. As you may or may not know back in that time of history when people went West in the U.S. they didn't necessarily give out a lot of information about themselves. So it's no surprise that our heroine's intended doesn't know that much about her when she turns up missing and the local sheriff and a detective start asking questions trying to help find her.
However, her astute neighbor across the hall of her rooming house, Mrs. Meade, seems to be able to suss out clues the men in charge don't seem to catch onto.
This is a plot that has been dressed up in many different kinds of times, clothes, and  characters, but the author has given it a fresh perspective with the introduction of Mrs. Meade.
A quick read with some interesting twists and turns, but I won't tell about the ending. You'll have to read to see how the story turns out.

Happy Reading--

The Bowl of Souls Series by: Trevor H. Cooley

This is a YA Series, but as I've said before I'm just a big kid at heart and I love to read about good triumphing over evil.
Unfortunately, if you don't have an E-Reader you won't be able to pick this one up. Mr. Cooley has had to E Publish himself. Shame on the big publishing houses for not saying yes to this author.
I never thought I would enjoy my Kindle Fire because I have been a reader of real books all my life. There's just something about opening a new book, the smell of the ink on paper, just no description for that since I'm not a writer.
The first in the series is Eye of the Moonrat, the second: Messenger of the Dark Prophet, and the third is: Hunt of the Bandham.
All the good characters are very likeable, and all the bad characters are very bad. Just the right mix to keep you rooting for the good guys throughout the series.
Mr. Cooley story has good flow which keeps you turning the pages and when you get to the end of one book you're wanting to read the next. When I got to the end of #3 I was so glad to find that he is working on #4.
If you're up for a bit of fantasy adventure this is a series you might want to check into.

Happy Reading--
