I received an email yesterday from McD. After seeing our discussion about recommendations in the comments to my last post, she is sharing her list of authors currently writing historical westerns. (I happen to know that McD is a thorough reviewer and has in fact reviewed for a couple of popular book blogs.) Four of the authors she mentions are new to me, and I’m going to give them a try. So, here it is:
All of these authors usually deliver 3.5-4 star reads, some higher, particularly JG.
Rosanne Bittner has a new book coming out – Do Not Forsake Me – in July. It’s book #2 in the Outlaw Hearts series. The first book, written over 20 years ago, is due to be re-issued in June by Sourcebooks. It’s a 500 page sweeping saga, and pretty good – 4 stars.
The Gallows’ Bounty
The Sheriff’s Widow
The Milch Bride
From Darkness to Glory
(there’s a third book in this series I’ve not yet read)
An older series that’s been re-issued – 4 stars overall – which I recently re-read and enjoyed:
A Reason to Live (the best of the series imo)
A Reason to Believe
A Reason to Sin
I hope those of you looking for recommendations find some new-to-you books and authors to try in that list.
