“I typically read crime novels. I decided to give a western a shot...so
glad I did!! SHANNON’S LAND is a wonderfully written book that drops

who's fast on the draw with both a Colt Revolver and a charming smile.
The combination is lethal in more ways than one and that includes the
great dialogue, which brings it all together.
