Waiting on Wednesday 04/04/18

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

Mogsy’s Pick

Heresy by Melissa Lenhardt (October 2, 2018 by Redhook)

Not the kind of book I usually feature, but as you know I am a huge fan of the author’s Sawbones trilogy, and I was hopping up and down with excitement when I found ot she was writing another Western about an all-female gang of outlaws tearing it up across the the American frontier.

“The Parker-LaCour Gang. The first and only all-female band of outlaws in the American West. Ignored during their time. Written out of history.

Margaret Parker and Hattie LaCour never intended to turn outlaw.

After being run off their ranch by a greedy cattleman, their family is left destitute. As women alone they have few choices: marriage, lying on their backs for money, or holding a gun. For Margaret and Hattie the choice is easy. With their small makeshift family, the gang pulls off a series of heists across the West.

Though the newspapers refuse to give the female gang credit, their exploits don’t go unnoticed. Pinkertons are on their trail, a rival male gang is determined to destroy them, and secrets among the group threaten to tear them apart. Now, Margaret and Hattie must find a way to protect their family, finish one last job, and avoid the hangman’s noose.”

  1. Looks good, I’m really liking that we seem to be seeing more Western-themed books. I like the idea of the all- female band of outlaws, and that they’re family too? Awesome.
