Pub Date: 6/30/20
“A ranch hand looking for work in Wyoming finds employment, true love, and murder. Despite the rising body count, Nesbitt keeps it all slow and easy as a gentled horse, making this tale the perfect escape even from other mystery fiction.”
-Kirkus Reviews on Across the Cheyenne River
Russell Archer has come to Wyoming to fulfill his dream of having his own land. After Archer works for one season on Lidge Mercer’s ranch, Mercer offers to make him a junior partner. Before long, however, Archer learns that Mercer may need a bodyguard more than a partner. Then Mercer is found dead, and Archer feels an obligation to solve the crime. Now the real difficulties set in, as the killers come for Archer and his sweetheart, Kate, one at a time. For Archer and Kate, the path leads to their own land across the Cheyenne River, but there are a great many obstacles in their way.
