"Secrets of the Western Town"
by Florence Linnington

Lottie and her Father have just arrived in the town of Red Canyon. He works for the railroad and it is his job to determine the best routes for new tracks to be laid and which towns the train will pass through. Lottie’s father is a widower who has never truly gotten over the loss of his wife, and unfortunately he has taken his pain out on his daughter. When he begins to ease his loneliness by becoming involved with the woman who runs the local cathouse, what will happen to Lottie?

This story has quite a few more twists to it than Ms Linnington's most recent tales. This is not a simple story of a young man or woman looking for a spouse, nor even a tale of love found or lost. In this case,  it was a tale about a young woman who must find the strength within herself to save not only herself, but those around her. And if she can't, she may lose more than just a romance or a family member. 

I enjoyed this more complex tale. It kept my interest held and had me wondering if this would have the happy ending that I have come to expect from Ms. Linnington's books. I won't give the answer to that question away here. You're just going to have to read the book for yourself to learn that one. What I can say here though, is that I think you will enjoy it just as much as I did.
