rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the best Wick book I've read so far. It is from one of her earlier series. Others have said that Wick's early books are better than the later ones, and this book is evidence of that. The storyline, about a woman who masquerades as a man and works for the US Treasury Department in the 1870s, is more exciting than Wick's other books and the writing isn't nearly as stilted. None of the "this woman" problem shows up here.
The books in the Rocky Mountain Memories series don't intertwine much with each other, so you could read this book out of order without missing anything. If I were to recommend Wick to someone who has never read her stuff, this book would be at the top of the list.
