Publisher's Summary

US Marshals Eli Flynn and William Henry Washington - longtime friends and colleagues - are escorting two prisoners to New Orleans for trial when they discover there's more than outlawry to the infamous shootist Dusty Rose and the enigmatic man known as Cage. As the two prisoners form an unlikely partnership, the marshals can't help but look closer at their own.

When forces beyond the marshals' control converge on the paddle wheeler they've hired to take them downriver, they must choose between two dangers: playing by the rules at any cost or trusting the very men they are meant to bring to justice.

Contains mature themes.

One of her finest creations to date!

Riveting is how I would describe this story not since the "Cut and Run " series have I been hooked on a set or in this case an ensemble of different personalities brought together to make this a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ read or listen!

Best work

I like this book the best of all the Roux books I have ever read. Quirky characters, lively dialogue, and a complicated plot. I would have enjoyed a series, I'm sure.

Won by the Wild Western Romantic Suspense

What did you love best about According to Hoyle?

I think the simpler question is what didn't I like and that would be nothing. I loved everything about this one from setting, plot, characters, to the twists, turns and action.

What other book might you compare According to Hoyle to and why?

This one felt cinematic. I saw this one in pictures like a western movie. A twist between Maverick, Clint Eastwood's spaghetti westerns, and some John Wayne maybe? I'm not good at the comparison game, but that's what it felt like, to me.

Have you listened to any of Mason Lloyd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was my first. He was great, matching well with the western genre and doing a fantastic job narrating three perspectives and doing dialogue for even more with five main characters.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

See my review title. :)

It's a western action romantic suspense so something for everyone.

Any additional comments?

Please, please, please, I beg for a sequel so I can go back to the world of According to Hoyle and it's characters.

I received this book from Riptide Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
