Christy Grey fled Tombstone, Arizona seeking a new beginning in California (see Love Finds You in Last Chance, California). In 1881, her brother Joshua sends a wire asking Christy to come home to help with their ailing mom. Dutiful and caring, she travels by stagecoach only to robbed and shot in her arm by the bandits.

When she reaches Tombstone, Christy finds her brother addicted to gambling and no help to their sick mom. Having lost her money to the stagecoach robbers, she desperately needs to bring in cash. The only place willing to hire Christy is the gambling halls; just what she ran away from in the first place. She meets and recognizes Nevada King, who was involved in the holdup. They are attracted to one another and he would love to settle down with Christy, but besides the robbery, a gang of outlaws want him dead.

The key to this Americana romance is Christy who as a single woman with a dancehall past struggles with her virtues as most males feel she is open season. Character driven by the courageous Christy and real persona like Doc Holiday and events like the stagecoach robbery, readers will appreciate this Love Finds You in a wonderful historical novel as Miralee Ferrell brings to life living as a single female in a frontier mining town just before the famous shootout.

I just received my hardback copy of "Love Finds You in Tombstone, Arizona" in the mail today from Crossings Book Club. I can't wait to read it. I already have LFYI Bridal Veil, OR and LFYI Last Chance, CA. Loved them both!! I was especially interested in LFYI Bridal Veil, OR, as I work just a few miles from there, in Corbett, OR. Thanks!

I've read all of Miralee's books and have loved them. Have LFY in Tombstone on my TBR list and looking forward to it.

I'll have to admit to being a teensy bit envious about you getting one of my books in hardcover. I found a copy of LFY in Last Chance, CA on ebay in HC and snatched it up. Apparently the person bought it on Crossings (same as you) read it and put it up for sale. I'd love to get my hands on all my books in HC. Maybe someday! I'd love to hear what you think once you read Tombstone. I'm tickled you enjoyed my other two, and how cool that you work in Corbett!

Hi Martha,

I'm so blessed that you enjoy my books and plan on reading this one. Thank you my friend!!!
