GOLD FEVER by Vicki Delany (RendezVous Crime)
Boy, did I have a good time with this one! I got to go back in time to 1898, to the wide-open Canadian Klondike. Fiona MacGillivray is co-owner of the popular Savoy Dance Hall. Fiona's 12-year-old son Patrick saves a young Native American woman from drowning and brings her home to the boarding house where he and Fiona live. Because of her son's gallant actions, FIona feels obligated to help Mary find a job. Mary's story is not pretty—and her former life shadows her current one.
Gold Fever offers murder, mayhem, and mud, and a grand look into Gold Rush history. I look forward to more adventures in the Klondike.
