Sam, Vanessa, and Charlie are the main characters in A Badge For Redemption by Lynda J Cox, with an excellent supporting cast played by the people who live and work in Redemption. Clay is the Mayor of Redemption while Charlie is from Purgatory, the next town over. Vanessa used to work for Sam, but when she is caught running away, she becomes the pawn in a horrible game of getting even. Sam and Charlie had a relationship that ended badly. Charlie uses threats against Vanessa to force her to destroy Sam. Nothing goes as expected and the twist and turns of the story will have you skipping chores and staying up late.
A Badge For Redemption - Redemption Bluff: Book 9 had a slow beginning in setting the scene, but the middle and end made it an impossible book to put down. I am sad to say I did not read books 1-8 but plan to change that very soon. However, A Badge For Redemption stood up just fine as a stand-alone western romance. I am a big fan of western novels, especially when a little romance is thrown in, and A Badge for Redemption did not disappoint in any way. It was impossible not to root for the good guys and hope that Charlie got what she deserved in the end. Author Lynda J Cox is a master storyteller and I look forward to reading more of her books in the very near future. If you are a western genre fan, this is a must-read.
