About the Book

Book: Shoot at the Sunset

Author: Kathleen Denly

Genre: Christian Historical Romance

Release Date: April 9, 2024

Will love survive when truth takes aim at their secrets?

Sharpshooter Preston Baker has spent a lifetime confronting danger head-on. So when a heartfelt letter arrives from his big sister asking for help, he doesn’t hesitate to put his traveling show career on hold and journey to her remote desert ranch, determined to make amends for past failures. What he doesn’t expect is to discover his long-lost little sister and her best friend, Lucy, are both hard at work on the ranch.

Unbeknownst to anyone, Lucy Arlidge’s decision to travel to a remote desert ranch was born as much from desperation as friendship. Fleeing San Francisco may have saved Lucy’s life, but the decision left others in danger. To thwart the evil plans of those who pursue her and her family, Lucy must keep her new gem-mining operation concealed and her secrets safe.

Preston is drawn to the mysterious woman, despite her plans to marry the neighboring rancher. Lucy’s quiet strength and undeniable beauty beckon him like a campfire in the wilderness, offering light amidst the dark memories and deepest fears resurrected by the presence of his sisters. But as danger closes in, Preston and Lucy must confront their pasts to save not only their own futures, but the lives of everyone they love.

This book was a long read but it was also an inspiring read. It deals with drug addiction (opium) and murder and fraudulent money shams. The plan of salvation is written into the story as part of the plot. The characters receive forgiveness and give forgiveness in this book. There are quotes that are shared as part of the storyline that are things that would be good for us readers to remember when we are struggling with things in our life.  This is the 5th book in this series. I think a reader would enjoy this book even if they didn't read the other 4 but i say it is better to read them all in order to get the background of all the characters mention, but I personally have to read entire series, just a personal trait of mine.  In this book the main characters , 
Opal, Lucy and Preston all grow in strength and learn to lean on and follow God.

I received a complimentary copy from the author and Celebrate Lit and these opinions are my own.
