Small town. Small mystery. Big heart.
Feeling betrayed by her family, Julia Thom has started her life over as a schoolteacher in a tiny Canadian frontier town. When her brightest pupil is accused of a crime he couldn’t have committed, and his dreams of becoming a doctor are ruined, Julia makes it her mission to clear his name.
As she gets close to solving the crime, an unexpected threat arises, and Julia will have to decide how much of her new life she’s willing to risk for someone she hardly knows.
Charlie Horse is the first book in the Town Called Horse cozy mystery series. If you like strong female heroines who refuse to be told what to do, a focus on character development, and misfits who are finding their place in the world then you’ll love award-winning author Alexandra Amor’s heartfelt take on life in frontier British Columbia.
5 stars “Charlie Horse was a heartwarming, feel-good read – brought a smile to my face. Loved the characters, the adventure and mystery, and the hint of romance. The local setting, landscape, and history were delicious. Left me wanting more.” Maggie R.
