Footprints in Oklahoma
Footprints in the Dew, Damon "Chub" Anderson and the unsolved Mullendore Murder - Dale R. Lewis

I loved this book! It was a great look at another crime in northeastern Oklahoma and a great local read companion to "Killers of the Flower Moon."
This is truly the story of Chub Anderson, outlaw and roughneck, and his wild life. The whole book centers around the E.C. Mulledore III's murder in 1970. However, there is so much more to Chub's life and your drawn into this wild ride of guns, drugs, hiding from the cops, and eventually Chub's last days.
Recommend for true crime buffs and Oklahoma history readers.

Release Blitz w/Review - The Friar

 

 

 

Adam Westfield gave his heart, mind, body, and soul over to God and entered the Franciscan Brotherhood, but a moment of rage had him breaking his vows and one of the ten commandments. Five years later, he’s released from prison a changed man once again. Unsure of his destiny now, he hits the road, roaming the United States, hoping to find a purpose in life again . . . and forgiveness.

A widowed mother of two, Sage Hammond is doing everything she can to hold onto the horse-breeding ranch that had belonged to her husband’s family for generations, but times are tough and she’s just barely getting by. Unable to find a ranch hand willing to work for meager wages, she thinks all may be lost and she will have to sell. Until a quiet, handsome stranger appears to be an answer to her prayers.

Adam is falling in love for the first time in his life, however, strange things begin to happen at the ranch—things that are putting Sage and her children in danger—and he finds he is willing to sell his soul to protect them. But will it be enough?

A man trying to overcome his past. A woman trying to secure her children’s future. Can they both learn to live in the present and discover that second chances do exist?

 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 

The FriarThe Friar by Samantha A. Cole
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Adam is starting over and trying to figure out what that mean for him. He has had a rough past with a lot of pain. He only knows he has to keep going to find where he belongs.

Sage has had a painful past as well. She has to raise her kids without their dad. She has to save her farm. She also has to figure out why she is so attracted to a stranger.

This book was full of surprises. There was honestly something inside for everyone between the pages. I had said earlier that it had "heart, reverence, joy, respect, friendship, family, and sexy!" Imagine all that with suspense thrown in. Yes, I know, really makes it a must read.

Reading progress update: I've read 272 out of 400 pages.
The Life and Legends of Calamity Jane (The Oklahoma Western Biographies) - Richard W. Etulain

If nothing else, this book has definitely made clear the impressive amount of research that was necessary to establish what little we really know about Calamity Jane's life. In this case, Etulain's not content simply to print the legend, but to dissect it and explain how it has led to the many myths surrounding this famous, yet obscure woman.

Now and Again
Now and Again - Charlotte Rogan

Wow this one is hard to review. There are 2 separate storylines here--that of Maggie and the rest of the folks in Red Bud, where a munitions plant keeps the war effort stocked and a prison of inmates is used for some sort of labor. And then there are Penn Sinclair, Danny, Pig Eye, Le Roy, and Joe Kelly--a group of soldiers who had been together in Iraq and have largely come back together to expose the lies of the war effort to the American public.

The only character in both of these stories is rather minor--Dolly, Danny's girlfriend and a midwife in Red Bud.

I kept expecting these 2 stories to come crashing together to resolve something. But it never really happens. And nothing is really resolved (not that the issues in this book could truly be, since they are real and they are current and ongoing in real life). Yet what one might expect if this were to go down in real life doesn't really happen either. Or at least Rogan doesn't actually finish that part of the story.

So, ultimately this was disappointing.
