A Bad Place to Die
A Tennessee Smith WesternPaperback - 2018
There aren't many options for an eighteen-year-old girl in the Old West, especially an orphan like Tennessee Smith. She can either sell her body in a seedy saloon or take her chances as a mail-order bride. Tennie chooses the latter. Joining a wagonload of women across Indian Territory, she arrives in the God-forsaken town of Ring Bit, Texas. Her husband-to-be is surprisingly decent. But after tying the knot in a quickie ceremony, he pops even more surprises on her. First, he introduces Tennie to his three young sons. Then he drops dead on their wedding night. Instead of running Tennie decides to stay and do whatever it takes to save the ranch and raise the boys. Rusty is thirteen, Lucas is ten, and Badger is six, they need a mother and Tennie needs a job. And the town needs a marshal. Sure, the local gamblers, outlaws, and thieves have no use for the law. Then again, they never met a lawman, or woman, like Tennessee Smith.
