This book is a fairly quick read, and I read all of it on a train ride back from New York City. It's set in the 1920s in a remote part of the west, so it has a mixture of Western with a little modern touches. I enjoyed that the book touched on things such as the beginning of forensic evidence, Prohibition and more.

Ruby was a good heroine for this time period, although I do feel that the intimacy between her and Ethan was a bit too rushed. Ruby's children wind up playing a big role in how the romance turns out, but I don't think there was enough time spent with Ethan developing a relationship with them. There is a good reason for Ethan's reticence, but I would have loved to see a bit more with how he deals with Ruby's daughters. The mystery that anchors the book dragged out a bit too much, and I think that time could be used to develop Ethan's relationship with the girls.
