Sam Ridgeway is on a mission. He's determined to find the deed to his gold claim, along with the low-down, thieving bum who stole it from his saddlebag. Arvid Angel would pay!
Cassie Angel has a plan. She and her little sister will sneak out of Broken Branch before being left alone in the dying town with despicable Sherman brothers. Thank goodness she now has a place to flee to. On his last visit, her Uncle Arvid stashed a deed to a gold claim in her dresser drawer. Even though it means traveling to California, she's set on trying her hand at gold panning-just like thousands of others flooding to that still-wild state. Unfortunately, before she and her sister are able to depart, Klem Sherman shows up looking for trouble. Just when Cassie thinks she is lost, a tall, good-looking cowboy appears and comes to her rescue.
MY REVIEWYes, another great story by Caroline. I liked this book from the beginning and throughout. Do you trust a stranger or a relative, even though the relative has a questionable reputation himself? You'll have to read and see what Cassie finds out to be true and all she goes through to find that truth. Highly recommended by 'ME'.
