Fiction • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Author and narrator are both listener favorites, and this novel set on the Monterey Peninsula in the 1850s is sure to please fans of both. Part historical romance, part murder mystery, part ghost story, the narrative highlights the roles of women as fighters, detectives, and comrades in arms against the men who victimize them. The perspective is more modern than historical, and Thérèse Plummer's fluent command of character voices and narrative tone are crucial to the storyline and its credibility. And as always in this author's fiction, the most idyllic moments occur on horseback. We are even given a few songs, nicely performed, and a thrilling climax that confirms the novel's tagline: "Being a woman is a dangerous business."
