Review: The Bone Orchard by Abigail Roux

The Bone Orchard Description: After leaving a trail of terror and death in his wake, the notorious “Missouri” Boone Jennings finally meets his match in San Francisco when US marshal Ambrose Shaw catches up to him. The story of his capture, and the marshal’s bravery, has already become legend back east by the time Pinkerton inspector Ezra Johns gets off the train from New York City to testify in the murderer’s trial.

When Ambrose is unable to give witness to the evils he’s seen, Ezra becomes their lone hope for putting Jennings in a noose. But if Ezra thinks that’s his biggest problem, he’s got plenty to learn about life—and the afterlife—in the spirited West.

Fortunately, Ambrose is there to assist, and more than happy to oblige Ezra—in the courtroom or the bedroom. He spent his life bringing justice to the Wild West, and if he has a say in it, that’s how he’ll be spending his death too.

Rating: 4/5 stars

Cover: Give me a sunset and chances are pretty high I’ll like it.

Review: Thanks to the Cut & Run series I am a big fan of Abigail Roux. So I had kinda big expectations of this book. And I wasn’t let down. There are a few things that could have been done differently, the ending was rather sudden for example and our main characters, who are really likeable, have a serious case of insta-love. Why?!

There are a few guest appearances which I loved and I would have liked to read more of, but this isn’t their story so it’s alright.


I bought it during a sale at Riptide Publishing.
