Trailblazer

I hate writing reviews of middling books.  I’m sure anyone who writes reviews on a regular basis will know what I mean when I say that reviews of books that are simply ‘okay’ are often the hardest to write.   Anna Schmidt’s Trailblazer, the first in her new Cowboys and Harvey Girls series ...
