Waiting on Wednesday 07/29/20

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!

The Silver Shooter by Erin Lindsey (November 17, 2020 by Minotaur Books)

I just love Erin Lindsey! I was so happy to discover that there will be a third volume in her ghostly historical mysteries starring Rose Gallagher, and I can’t wait to see what paranormal activities she will be investigating next.

“Erin Lindsey’s third historical mystery The Silver Shooter follows Rose Gallagher as she tracks a monster and searches for treasure in the wilds of the Dakota Territory.

It’s the spring of 1887, and Rose Gallagher is finally coming into her own. She’s the proud owner of a lovely little home near Washington Square, where she lives with her mother and friend Pietro, and she’s making a name for herself as a Pinkerton agent with a specialty in things . . . otherworldly. She and her partner Thomas are working together better than ever, and mostly managing to push aside romantic feelings for one another. Mostly.

Things are almost too good to be true—so Rose is hardly surprised when Theodore Roosevelt descends on them like a storm cloud, hiring them for a mysterious job out west. A series of strange occurrences in the Badlands surrounding his ranch has Roosevelt convinced something supernatural is afoot.

It began with livestock disappearing from the range, their bodies later discovered torn apart by something monstrously powerful. Now people are dying, too. Meanwhile, a successful prospector has gone missing, and rumors about his lost stash of gold have attracted treasure hunters from far and wide – but they keep disappearing, too. To top it all off, this past winter, a mysterious weather phenomenon devastated the land, leaving the locals hungry, broke, and looking for someone to blame.

With tensions mounting and the body count rising, Roosevelt fears a single spark will be all it takes to set the Badlands aflame. It’s up to Rose and Thomas to get to the bottom of it, but they’re against the clock and an unknown enemy, and the west will prove wilder than they could possibly imagine…”

    • One of my favorite romance-fantasy series (the Bloodbound trilogy) is by Lindsey so yes she’s been known to include a lot of romance in her stories 😀 But so far it’s actually been quite light in this series, which I definitely appreciate because the focus is on the paranormal mystery 😀

  1. I would look right past that cover when browsing, but historical mystery, tracking a monster, and searching for treasure? That sounds like a fun read.

  2. I feel sad because this series looks right up my alley and I didn’t know about it until just now? How did I miss this one?! Hahaha. Thanks for sharing, I will have to dig around for the previous books.

  3. I really like the retro style covers for this series – although, like other commenters I wonder whether I would have just skipped over them as light historical reads and not realised the fantasy elements? I hope you love this one.
    Lynn 😀
