A Chance for Escape Takes Two Unlikely Allies on a Romantic Adventure Along a Desert Trail
Since orphaned at age twelve, Carmela Wade has lived a lie orchestrated by her uncle, pretending to be a survivor of an Indian kidnapping and profiting from telling her made-up story on the speaker circuit. But as she matures into adulthood, Carmela hates the lies and longs to be free. On a stagecoach in Arizona Territory, Carmela and her uncle are fellow passengers with US Marshal Freeland McKay and his handcuffed prisoner.
The stage is attacked. Now a chance to make a new life may suddenly be within Carmela’s reach. . .if she can survive the harsh terrain and being handcuffed to an unconscious man.
Will Carmela’s wish come true, or will she forever be branded by her past?
**I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.**
You know those books that just catch you a bit off guard? The ones that exceed expectations or are just unlike what you thought you would get, and you love every moment of it? That is what I discovered in Susan Page Davis’s My Heart Belongs in the Superstition Mountains: Carmela’s Quandry.
From early on in this book, I was drawn into Carmela’s story. A girl who was forced to lie on stage to grow her Uncle’s wealth. As those lies contradicted with what she thought was right, the tensions in the story grew. Add in a cast of wonderful characters, some good western fun, and a well-timed romance story and it just made for an enjoyable read.
So far in the My Heart Belongs series of books, Davis’s novel has by far been my favorite and I think it will take another great one to even come close to knocking this one off that pedestal.
