Product Description (from Amazon):
In 1880 America, socialite Eugenia Cooper's life is all mapped out, including a marriage to rich banker Chandler Dodd. But this lover or western dime novels longs for an adventure of her own. When the opportunity arises, she jumps a train to Denver, Colorado to pose as a governess for ten-year-old Charlotte Beck. What she discovers in Denver, however, can hardly be called a girl. The grubby thing not only wears britches and refuses to bathe, she stole Eugenia's pocketbook before Eugenia even left the train station.
Then she meets a handsome man at the local store and wonders if this western adventure won't have a little romance. What she didn't expect was that she would be thrust into a scandal that would not only ruin her good name, but that of Charlotte's father, Daniel Beck. What's a girl to do?
My overall feeling of the book:
While this wasn’t my favorite Kathleen Y’Barbo book, I did enjoy it.
My Favorite Character:
Charlie, aka, Charlotte. The daughter of the hero even if she is a bit precocious.
My Favorite Scene:
My favorite scene is in the general store when Eugenia and Daniel first meet and flirt.
It Would Have Been Better If:
I just wanted to get deeper into the book than I was able to.
I would recommend this book to:
All us girls who long for a “Wild West Adventure”.
