Showdown on the River: The Bell Chronicles is the first book in a series by J.L. Curtis. The Kindle version has been out for a bit, yesterday the paperback was released! Mr. Curtis is a gifted storyteller, does his research, and like The Grey Man, this is a going another exceptional series.
Rio Bell is leading a cattle drive up the Goodnight Loving Trail to Fort Laramie. It’s his first time as trail boss, but with trusted hands and hard work, he expects to be back in Texas by late September though fire, flood, or rustlers bar the way!
He didn’t count on a range war.
They didn’t account for the Rio Kid…
And he sure as hell didn’t count on the girl showing up!
