"A meandering mystery with plenty of suspects cleverly weaves the true facts of Annie's storied life with plenty of historical tidbits." --Kirkus Reviews "Anyone who has always wanted to ride next to the amazing Annie Oakley will love to hop into this novel and travel across the ocean with America's sweetheart! A fast read with real life characters and a lovely look into a woman who dared to be true to her own heart." --Kris Radish, best selling author of 14 books, including A Dangerous Woman from Nowhere and The Year of Necessary Lies "An engrossing tale that features a fierce and exciting heroine, a nefarious plot against the British Queen, and so many interesting details about both British and American society in the 1880s, Pecadillo at the Palace is a fast-paced murder mystery full of heart-stopping suspense. Showcasing strong female relationships and real-life historical figures from Annie Oakley to Oscar Wilde, this next installment in Bovee's Annie Oakley mystery series is an utter delight." --Jacqueline Friedland, award-winning author of Trouble the Water "In Peccadillo at the Palace, author Kari Bovï¿½e once again delights with a tale of intrigue, murder and romance on the high seas and then in London where Annie Oakley and Buffalo Billï¿½s Wild West Show travel to perform for the Queenï¿½s jubilee. Bovï¿½e skillfully weaves together various plot threads with historical details and unexpected twists to produce a clever, fast-paced mystery that will keep readers guessing until the very end!" --Michelle Cox, author of the award-winning Henrietta and Inspector Howard series Praise for the series: "Bovï¿½e's debut novel brings readers solidly into the heyday of the Wild West shows, providing wonderful details about the elaborate costumes and the characters' remarkable marksmanship . . . There are enough entertaining elements to keep readers guessing, including romance, rivalries, jealousy, and at least one evil character from Annie's past. The prose has a charming simplicity, which keeps the attention focused on the action and the well-developed protagonist. A quick, fun read with engaging rodeo scenes." --Kirkus Reviews "A fast-paced plot keeps the pages turning. Readers interested in strong American women will welcome this new series. . ." --Publishers Weekly "Absorbing, heartfelt, and thrilling, Girl with a Gun shows off young Annie Oakley's skills as a sharpshooter and as a loyal detective. From the period details to the Wild West setting, I was completely immersed in the story and in the larger-than-life characters. It's a fun as a rodeo, and nearly as dangerous. Like Annie herself, Bovee's prose sparkles with precision and skill." --Martha Conway, author of Underground River, New York Times Book Review Editor's Choice "Kari Bovï¿½e paints a captivating portrait of the young sharpshooter, Annie Oakley, in Girl with a Gun. A diverting plot filled with unexpected twists and turns enthralls and satisfies the reader as Annie is transformed from a naï¿½ve Quaker girl to an independent young woman. This lively mix of historical fiction, romance, and mystery hits the target!" --Susan McDuffie, author of the award winning Muirteach McPhee Mysteries
