Girl with a Gun (An Annie Oakley Mystery #1) Reviews
Annie Oakley joins Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show and discovers the body of the female Indian who shares her tent. Unhappy with the verdict of natural causes she decides to investigate.
Unfortunately I felt that the story and the characters were flat and uninteresting, and it was a struggle to care for the mystery and finish the book.
