“Ahhhhhhh” (That’s the sigh of a contented reader who just found a book that was exactly what she hoped it would be.)
The Lucky Hat Mine is a classic old west tale complete with miners, murder and mail order brides.But… the mail order bride’s husband-to-be was the murder victim and all the miners are lining up to propose.
Fortunately, our heroine is made of stern stuff and despite the fact that she spouts off rules of etiquette at every occasion and constantly reminds the men to watch their language, she gets along just fine, and even thrives, in the Colorado mining town she has landed in.
Would I recommend it? There is a goat in this book! A fainting goat. So, clearly, yes. Also there is a great strong female lead, humor, a smidgen of romance, a murder mystery all wrapped up in a western. What’s not to love!?!
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I discovered this book because I’m a proud member of Rosie’s Book Review Team!
Thank you Jessie, I’ve read this too and the goat certainly was fun.
The goat was treated so much like a dog at times that after my initial shock about it I just enjoyed its presence but never felt like it was too big for the story. I thought it was well done, though I do love goats so I might be biased. 😉
The fainting goat was the persuader for me.
You really just can’t beat a fainting goat book! 🙂
