Review:

"Cox's (Love in Disguise) western romance is set in 1893 in Arizona Territory, where the motto, 'Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free,' has appeared on the masthead of the Granite Springs Gazette for as long as its editor's daughter, Amelia Wagner, can remember. The integrity of her father, A.J. Wagner, is a given. But when he dies, leaving the newspaper to her, she jumps in to complete his investigation against a leviathan financial firm. Though the owner of the Great Western Investment Company has done nothing illegal, Amelia fully believes her father's insistence that an evil truth must be brought to light. Devoted friends — typesetter Homer, paperboy Jimmy, and other faithful community members, including handsome Ben Stone, an unexpected ally from within Great Western itself — assist in an impetuous investigation that leads Amelia into mortal danger. Her beliefs about her parents, as well as about God's will, are sorely tested. Cox's 13th novel is sure to delight fans of the Old West. Agency: Books & Such Literary Management.

Book Summary: Wild West Romance and Mystery. When Amelia Wagner takes over the running of her father's newspaper in Granite Springs, Arizona, she vows to carry on the paper's commitment to reporting only the truth. But Amelia soon learns that even the truth can have consequences. Her father's revealing articles about Great Western Investment. Company’s business methods have caught the notice of the wrong person, and pressure mounts for Amelia to retract her father's statements. Determined to find the truth, Amelia goes through her father's notes and begins to interview members of the community. She can't seem to shake Benjamin Stone, a Great Western employee who's been assigned to keep tabs on her for the good of the company. The more Ben and Amelia learn, the more Amelia's father's claims appear to be accurate. In fact, it's probably worse than he realized. Even Ben is beginning to wonder if he's become a pawn in the workings of a corrupt empire. But Great Western isn't about to stand for a female reporter and one of their own men bringing down their lucrative schemes. Working against time, and never knowing what danger lurks around the next corner, Ben and Amelia set out to reveal all they've discovered before Great Western silences them for good.

Review: This is the first, but not last book by Carol Cox that I have read. I enjoyed getting to know Amelia and Ben. The sadness of Amelia loosing her father at the start was hard, but realistic. The Great Western thing was realistic for the most part, although Owen Merrick, in my opinion, could have been a little more slick. Since he had someone do all his dirty work it would have been more realistic. Clara, Martin, Jimmy, and Homer were good secondary characters that helped move the story along. The mystery was not so mysterious and that was disappointing. Overall I liked the writing style. Ms. Cox did well painting a picture of the town and the surrounding areas. The newspaper aspect was a great hook to draw me into the story. The newspaper office was realistic and interesting to think of all that went into printing a newspaper.
I would like to thank Net Galley and Bethany House Publishing for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.
