I’m thrilled to have friend and fellow author, Sandra Cox, here today to talk about her latest, “Return to Silverhills.”
I had the pleasure of reading this as a beta reader. I can highly recommend “Return to Silverhills,” but I decided to enjoy the story one more time before writing the review 🙂
I found all the words in the puzzle below. Fun!
A trail boss with a fast gun. A damaged woman. A cattle drive fraught with danger. And a combustible attraction.
The unexpected sound made her heart crash against her ribs, her hands grow clammy and her breath push in and out in sharp gasps. Her horse sidled in response to her nerves.
More gunfire and whoops sounded in the distance.
She flinched. The bang and flash of gunfire. The sight and scent of sulphur. Always a reminder of the night the Comancheros had captured her and slaughtered her family.
Fighting back the painful memories, Lisa Reiner stared into the valley at the ranch below, the mountains behind it throwing off a blinding glitter wherever the sun touched. Alex talked incessantly about those flashes of silver in the hills. Alex. Who’d cared enough to take her out of the mission and bring her to her own home to start fresh, to live with her like a sister.
Slowly. Tentatively. Fear and nerves crawled into excitement. Silverhills.
She spent a number of years in the Midwest chasing down good Southern BBQ. By the time she moved to North Carolina where Southern BBQ is practically a staple, she’d become a vegetarian.
Pineapple is a must-have on pizza, along with black olives and onions.
She loves pumpkin waffles. Pumpkin cream cheese, not so much.
Old West Puzzle
Can you find: remuda, longhorn, lasso, rope, saddle, bridle, saddlebags, coffee, gun, canteen, saloon, tobacco?
Sandra, who also writes as S. Cox, is a vegetarian, animal lover and avid gardener. She lives with her husband, their dog and cats in sunny North Carolina.
An award-winning author, her stories consist of all things Western and more.
