Firstly, I don't think I've ever read a western before; you know Western as in cowboys and sheriffs and all that stuff but am I glad that I picked up MILES TO LITTLE RIDGE? You bet! Great story with interesting characters and a whole lot more for not a lot of money.
What intrigued me to begin with was that Heath Lowrance is writing about a character, US Marshall Gideon Miles, from the pen of Edward A. Grainger. To let someone else loose with your creation involves such a lot of trust and Grainger must be delighted with the tale that Lowrance came up with.
The characters and the setting are both expertly drawn, opening up with the Swede chopping wood, unaware that his partner, Christian, was becoming aroused by his hard body and the rhythm of the work. So this wasn't what I expected! Go read this yourself - it's not what you expect!
I always think it's a good sign that I'm disappointed when I get to the end of a story. No, I'm not crazy! What I mean is that I'm disappointed that there's not more, that I've already devoured such a tasty offering and Miles to Little Ridge is definitely one of those stories. I've got other Cash Laramie & Gideon Miles stories sitting waiting on my Kindle and they've now just moved rapidly up my TBR list and I'll also be checking out more of Mr. Lawrance's writing with Trestle Press. Oh heck...I think I'm in love again!
