The future is clearly mapper out for New York socialit Eugeinia “Genie” Cooper, but she secretly longs to slip into the boots of her favorite dime-novel heroine and experience just one adventure before settling down. When the opportunity arises, Gennie jumps at the chance to experience the Wild West, but her plans go awry when she is drawn into the lives of silver baron Daniel Beck and his daughter and finds herself caring for them more than is prudent–especially as she’s supposed to go back to New York and marry another man.

As Gennie adapts to the rough-and-tumble world of 1880s Colorado, she must decide whether her future lies with the enigmatic Daniel Beck or back home with the life planned for her since birth. The question is whether Daniel’s past–and disgruntled miners bent on revenge–will take that choice away from her.

I have always enjoyed books (and movies)where people switch places, “trade lives” so to speak…  and that is what happens with Eugunia “Gennie”.  Leaving her socialite lifestyle Genie trades places with her maid and the fun really begins!

A fun lite read that had a few laugh out loud moments.  I enjoyed how this fun loving character found herself in a western themed life. As a lover of dime novel books, she finds herself almost in the same situations as the characters in the books she has so enjoyed to read!

  1. I have to admit to an irrational dislike of Westerns, so I’m quite surprised that this one sounds good!

    Thanks for sharing your review.

  2. Yo know – I do too…. I was surprised myself as I kind of wrinkled my nose when I seen what it was about. It was a fun read… not overly “WOW!”, but fun and easy to read.

    This book sounds (and looks – I just love the cover) like so much fun!

    Now I’m going to ask a stupid newbie question – what’s a book tour and how do you get so many copies of ARCs? Any advice/tips for me?

  4. Sounds like a light and fun read!
