Just in time for Christmas, we are delighted to announce the release of one last book for this year: The Crimson River by Donna Westover Gallup. It is the 4th and final book in the Mysterious Ways series of novels, set in 1872 Colorado Territory & 2010 Denver, Colorado. After Charlie Smith comes of age, finds his fortune, and learns who to trust in the first 3 books, the story now fast forwards to 21st-Century Denver, with Charlie Smith's descendent as a main character, and with flashbacks to Charlie’s continued story. The plot involves a hunt for buried treasure based on clues found in Charlie's diary. Beloved characters from the first three books enter the picture and struggle against greedy antagonists and their own conflicted motives. Plot twists provide suspense and intrigue as well as romance and inspiration.
"I loved the history in this novel and the back and forth between ancestor Charlie and current events. Gallup intertwines the two stories with perfect balance coming to a perfect end.... If there is a book lover on your list this would make a great Christmas gift!" ~ Lindsey, IE Mommy blog review crew
"The twists and turns, the sharing of emotions, and the conclusion of the story will surprise and delight the reader.... I thoroughly enjoyed this series and recommend it to anyone who likes a good story. Each book in this series made me want to curl up in front of a fireplace with a mug of hot chocolate and travel back in time to the Colorado old west. "
