River pirates!

An unusual story, cleverly told that will take you down a flatboat on the Mississippi to New Orleans.

Set in 1828, beginning in St. Louis, this is the story of Juno Brock, a young widow who meets a dangerous criminal on the street who threatens her to get her to deliver a package. She believes it has to do with counterfeiting but since she can’t read, she doesn’t know what is written on the directions he gives her. Instead, she sells her hair for the passage north to Michigan Territ

A journey down the Mississippi River is fraught with perils: alligators, pirates, and a debonair flatboat captain with his sight set on revenge. Sign me up!

This is only the second Marti Ziegler book I’ve ever read, but I think it’s fair to say that one of my favorite things about her work is seeing the characters evolve. I’m now convinced she is an absolute master at creating a rough male lead who you can’t help but love. At first introduction, Malcolm is kind of a jerk. He is hell bent on reven

I previously read and loved the author's first book, Clingstone, so I had pretty high hopes for Watermark. Unsurprisingly, this book far exceeded any expectations I had when I started it. Even though I've only read two of her books, this one is without a doubt my favorite (for now).

Marti Ziegler is a brilliant historical romance author. While I may not read much historical romance, I can attest that this is a fantastic book, no matter the genre.

Both the aspects of life on the Mississippi Rive

The ending saved the book for me.
The beginning was okay. The middle was okay.
I had to reread parts quite often as it just wasn’t making sense to me. I think the way the author revealed bits and pieces when she did was confusing. Once I got to about chapter 18 I started really enjoying the book. So as I said, the ending saved it for me.
