My first introduction to the writing of Miralee Ferrell was through another Love Finds You novel, Love Finds You in Bridal Veil, Oregon. I have no however read Love Finds You in Last Chance, CA which for some purposes could be considered a prequel this this novel. However it is my understanding they stand alone, and reading this one first just reiterates a desire to snatch up the other one as soon as I get the chance. Honestly right now I have a bunch of books in my TBR pile, but when this one a ...more

I've mentioned before, that I don't particularly care for historical chicklits, but I absolutely loved this book.

It follows the story of Christy Grey (from Ms. Ferrell's book Love Finds You in Last Chance, California), as she moves back to Tombstone to help her family. I felt this book was well written, and intriguing...who wouldn't love to learn more about Tombstone...it has such a rough history that is romanticized.

I loved how Ms. Ferrell researched this city and worked in real events...this r

When Christy Grey is summoned to Tombstone, she’s happy to be available for her sick mother, and even hopes to be able to make a life for herself from the new adventure. What she doesn’t expect is for her stagecoach to be held up just before she reaches her destination. A stray bullet hits Christy’s arm, and when one of the masked men offers to tend it for her, she gets a glimpse of the face behind the mask, as well as the man behind the good-looking face. In return for his assistance, she makes ...more

Miralee Ferrell's books are a delight to this reader. From her historic Love Finds You books to her contemporary The Other Daughter and Finding Jeena, Miralee delivers a compelling story that entertains and satisfies.

Her latest accomplishment, Love Finds You in Tombstone, Arizona, unfolds a romantic tale set against the backdrop of one of the old west's most notorious historic towns. If you are drawn to the intriguing personality of the rugged denizens of frontier days with a questionable histor

A Yummy Slice of Old West Life...

Miralee Ferrell takes the reader back to the wild, gunslinging Old West in Finding Love in Tombstone, Arizona. The fear produced by sudden shoot-outs and hold-ups, the dust, the saloon atmosphere, the hapless saloon women who were ostracized yet longing to be free of their lifestyle; all were very convincingly portrayed by Ms. Ferrell. I felt like I was experiencing the certain horrible excitement of proud gunslingers or the fear of a lady serving gamblers and ca

An absolutely wonderful historical romance novel!

I loved both Christy Grey and Nevada King. Miralee did an incredible job of developing and presenting these great characters. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting them and slowly learning about their personal backgrounds. It helped me see what shaped them into the people they are at the time of this story.

The interest between them started to build slowly which is what I like to see in a book. It feels more natural to me that way. I was fascinated by the i

This book had me from page one. Miralee really knows how to write a book I have not found one yet that I have not liked. Love finds you is a series but there is no need to read them in order. every story is unique in its own way Christie Grey and Nevada King are the two main characters in this book. Nevada is a ex outlaw and Christie Grey has come to tombstone to care for her sick mother. it's truly a wonderful love story a big page turner for me.

Excellent book, I feel in love with all the characters so much and the way the Author weaved the story with actual historical sites and people it made you feel like the story could have truly happened. And best part is how she shows that whatever horrible fate the characters face, God is right there to turn it around. This book is one of my favorites of all Miralee Ferrell's books

I was thrilled when I opened up this book! It is somewhat of a continuation of Love Finds You In Last Chance California, though can be read alone ~ I didn't feel like I was missing any details in this book when I read it. But, that being said, I was super excited to read it when I realized it was continuing on with a character from the previous book! So if you haven't read Love Finds You In Last Chance California you might want to give it a whirl first!

I received an audiobook version of Love Finds You in Tombstone, Arizona in exchange for a fair review!

While I didn’t particularly like the narrator in this book at first, she grew on me. She does a fine job doing all the voices for the different characters. I was especially fond of her Irish trill.

Miralee Ferrell quickly became one of my favorite authors, last year, when I read her novel Love Finds You in Bridal Veil Oregon. Her writing style and unique characters quickly worked there way into my heart. I then had the pleasure of reviewing her contemporary fiction novels Finding Jeena and The Other Daughter, as well as another Love Finds You book (Love Finds You in Last Chance California).

Christy Grey receives a message from her brother that he needs her help. Having lost a connection with her family, she feels drawn to returning home and fixing that. Unfortunately, her trip to Tombstone, Arizona goes awry when the stagecoach is robbed. What she finds when she arrives in Tombstone is definitely not what she expected either. The relationship with her mom and her brother is rather shaky, but she is determined to change that.

I always enjoyed the old TV westerns when I got an opportunity to watch them. But 30 minutes or an hour is not long enough to really develop the characters, the plot, or much else. It was simply good versus evil and good always won. Most of the time, only the bad guys died. Don’t look for a stock formula in this book. The story goes so much deeper than a woman with a past going to Tombstone to help her ailing mother, meeting a man, and finding love. The hero and heroine have experienced a lot th ...more

What an action-packed historical romance! This story read like a western style romance with the geographical setting, the stagecoaches, the blacksmith, and the holstered guns on the hips of the men; yet it was so much more. It was a story of choices, forgiveness, reconciliation, hospitality, and finding God in the darkest corners of life.
Miralee Ferrell writes with precise historical accuracy, interweaving it with the perfect amount of suspense and romance. The book is written as a sequel to Lov

Unfortunately, this book wasn't that great until the last 75 pages or so. It was not well planned out and was a finicky story.

Christy is leaving Last Chance (which I read the book for that one and liked). Her brother informed her that her mama was sick and he couldn't take care of her that well. On her way out there is a hold up and she is shot. She meets a man in Tombstone named Nevada who has some history of being on the run and Christy also has some history she hopes never comes up.

Finding Love in Tombstone, Arizona is probably my favorite book by Miralee Ferrell, so far. It is about Christy Grey, a former saloon dancer, who has turned her life around and has returned home after recieving a telegram from her brother telling her their mother is gravely ill. There is so much to this story that it is difficult to summarize. It is a charming story that reads like a western, including gun fights, saloons and gambling, and even a stage

I really enjoy reading books set in the old west and finding out how it was living back then especially for a woman. Christy Grey finds herself back in the town she thought she had left for good to help out her family. I cannot imagine how adventitious it would be to leave for a new life and travel during this time as she did. and then to get held up and shot along the way would have been both exciting and terrifying.
Once she makes it back to town she had to deal with her family who is not survi

This book is a direct follow-up to Love Finds You in Last Chance, California, though nothing on the book jacket indicated that fact. It actually really irritated me that it wasn't mentioned, as I had to go and read Last Chance before I started this one. When I finally got to this book, I found it dragged just as much as Last Chance did. The story with Nevada and Christy was not enough to keep my interest, though the historical figures peppered throughout the book was enough to keep my interest g ...more

The descriptions in this story are so real that I could imagine the dust on the stagecoach and dry air in Tombstone Arizona. Christy arrives back home to find family and new friends that need help. A ride on the stagecoach brings more mystery to life than she needs. This is a story that will take you to a time of cowboys,stagecoaches and the wild west. In the story, the reader is reminded that God forgives, we just need to ask for his forgiveness. I like that there is faith element in the story. ...more
