Canyon War by Sarah Sawyer is a delightful historical novella that will warm your heart. It is the first book in the Doc Beck Western series.
The characters are all well drawn and realistic. I loved the delightfully amusing banter and rapport between Jimmy and Doc Beck. The giving of a nickname ‘Just Jimmy’ shows a feeling of ease and a bond of friendship.
There are two rival groups of tough talking cowboys within the story. The reader witnesses that violence merely serves to destroy from within.
We all need to know that someone cares and has our back. We all long to belong.
As I began the story I had a few preconceived ideas that were rapidly demolished much to my surprise! Have a read and see if the same happens with you.
Canyon War is a charming novella to kick off what promises to be a great new series.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the author. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
