Publisher's Summary

The situation between Deputy Brock Guthrie and Daphne Decker is complicated. Can he get past his hatred of Indians and accept Daphne for the woman she is within instead of seeing only her Comanche heritage? Will he take a chance and come down from the fence he sits on, or will he turn away from the possibility of a lifetime of happiness with Daphne?

Battling Prejudice

The woman whom he's loved for nearly ever--since childhood!--but she's 1/2 Comanche and the Comanche killed his grandfather; this well-written story explores the nature of prejudice and faith while providing a provocative look at police work in the Wild West. Narration by Jay R. Smith brings the story alive. If you are starting with this tale, there is sufficient background included to bring you up to speed, but having read Book 1 of the series I had a head start understanding the protagonists' positions. (I sure miss the TV westerns like Bonanza, Big Valley, Paladin, Maverick . . . reading Ms Deeter's novels brings back many a warm memory!)

On the Fence

I loved the imagery in this book. I did have difficulty placing the time frame of the book due to various inventions mentioned. The telephone, wheelchair, fun houses. I loved how the author wrote about prejudice and made issues apparent and how ignorant people were. This story was so well written and eyeopening. I loved the imagery and found many of the characters were endearing.The narration was perfect for the book. Jay R Smith added the right emotions and had a smooth silky voice, and distinguished voices for the various characters. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review.

Totally was hooked from start to finish

The story is based on issues as old as time of prejudice against a group of people because of the color of their skin. Indians have had a hard life with what people think they did from the past and base their beliefs on a bunch of bad apples. Not much has changed as we move forward just different groups that people hit hard. You would think people would learn not all groups are bad. I thought the author did a wonderful job of showing this in her story. It was a very touching read that really touches your heart. She brings to life a story that holds your attention with sorrow, anger with a wonderful twist of humor that had me laughing out loud.

Brock is attracted to Daphne (he won’t admit it) and she is so in love with him, but he is so blind to what they can have because she is Indian, and he is not. He does has his reasons from afar they are good at least he thinks they are. Plus there are people in his family that wouldn’t like the fact they would become a couple. Brock is a good man he lives for justices and does his duty to keep the town free of crime. As people push him one way and some the other he has to overcome many issues before he can find his HEA. Daphne is a lovely wonderful woman full of spirit who stands up for what she believes in. Sure there are other men who want her attention, but she can’t get over her feelings for the one man who doesn’t want her.

The narrator does a great job but at times is a little slow not pausing when he needs to and pausing before he should. As the audio takes you away and comes to life I didn’t notice it and was taken away by a great story. I thought he has improved with his female voices, but they still need a little work. His male voices are great as he pulls you in with some very sexy and deep ones but also some that are more childlike they really fit the characters. I had no trouble knowing who was talking or what they were feeling. He shows great emotions from sad, to humor as needed. I found no background noises or any volume changes, there are no repeating of words. If any breaks were taken I could not tell. I thought this was a great listen that really made me feel the characters emotions and was very easy to picture the scenes as they played out. It is a very clean and clear audio that I totally enjoyed.

The story is a wonderful delightful fun read that holds your attention with mystery, drama, anger, love, learning to overcome, romance and humor that makes you laugh. I truly loved the monkey he was so adorable and adds so much to this story. The author puts a lot in a small space of time which really pulls the reader in. I love that there is no filler and the story does not drag on. It is to the point but filled with so much going on that you are hanging on the edge at times. The characters are great, there are some very touching scenes with supporting characters. I truly felt like this town was my home with wonderful friends and neighbors I just wanted to move there. The author writes about some very touchy issues as she brings to life the true facts on how Indians were dealt with and how they overcome some of them. I thought this was such a touching read with wonderful characters and I didn’t want the story to end. I truly loved every scene that the author bought alive making it so easy to picture things as they happened in my mind. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.

Very good story!!

I really enjoyed this story. Being in an interracial marriage myself I did kind of understand some of the mixed feelings that were going on. I’m glad he took the chance to be happy. I did the same and it worked out great for both of us.
