I really like the originality of Kim Vogel Sawyer's books. This book is set in Kansas and while the setting is familiar, the characters and storyline are quite unique. Sadie just wants to sing, but while her pa is laid up from a work injury she needs to help support the family as well. Her cousin has a solution, move to Kansas where he is and work at the mercantile and sing at the Opera House. Sadie takes him up on the offer so she can send money home to her family but she never expects to get caught up in the middle of illegal happenings in this sleepy little town. Meanwhile Thad comes to town as law enforcement and ends up earning his keep. Can Sadie make up her mind whether to be loyal to family or loyal to her heart. A very enjoyable book.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Thad McKane comes to Goldtree at the request of the town council. The town has been plagued by bootlegging operations, and Thad believes he can find the culprit. After he earns enough money doing sheriff work, he wants to use it to pay for his training to become a minister.
Thad is immediately attracted to the beautiful singer who performs in Asa Baxter's unusual opera house, but when he hears her practicing bawdy tunes, he begins to wonder if she's far less innocent than she seems. And when Sadie appears to be part of the very crimes he's come to investigate, is there any hope the love blossoming between them will survive?
