March 2022: Updated for Audiobook

Publisher’s Synopsis:
Alison Carter wrote the definitive book on legendary American hero, U.S. Marshal Silas Quinn, who survived the infamous 1898 shootout at the Red Rock Saloon only to witness the murder of his wife, Melody, by the brutal outlaw Jamie “Kid” Gallagher in the desolate Arizona hills.

Now “Quinn,” a big-budget Hollywood movie, is being made on location in Jubilation, Arizona, and Alison’s the historical consultant, making sure the production team gets the story right.

Then a too-handsome man in a cowboy hat waltzes into Alison’s trailer, claiming to be the great-grandson of Kid Gallagher—and oh, by the way, Alison and the rest of the world have gotten the facts of America’s best-known legend completely wrong…

Military veteran A.J. Gallagher hasn’t had an easy life, but hard work and a return to his large, supportive family in his Alaskan hometown has helped him earn ten solid years of sobriety—one quiet, uneventful day at a time. Only now A.J.’s being haunted by the ghost of his beloved great-grandfather, Jamie “please don’t call him ‘Kid’” Gallagher, who wants A.J. to set the record straight—Quinn was the real villain of the legend. But the only person who can see or hear Jamie is A.J., and with his history of mental illness, he’s unwilling to believe his own eyes. Still, A.J. travels to the movie set with his invisible sidekick, hoping that doing so will end his “hallucinations.” But one conversation with brilliant and funny Professor Alison Carter is all it takes to make sparks fly.

When Alison witnesses an altercation that puts her life in danger, she’s targeted by ruthless criminals who want her dead. And A.J.—with Jamie’s very real help—has the military training and skill-set to keep her alive…

Point of view:
3rd person. Alternating perspectives by A.J., Alison, & Jamie.

Rellim’s Thoughts:
I read this several years ago and wanted to listen to the audiobook. This is a mix of romance, humor, supernatural, mystery, & suspense with a bit of historical.

At 15 hours, this is the kind of book that many authors would break into a duet or trilogy – but Brockmann packs it all into one terrific audiobook.

I like A.J. (42) & Alison (30s) as characters and how they become a couple. Both have a great deal of baggage and emotional healing to work through. However, I found them particularly endearing.

The ghost of A.J.’s great-grandfather, Jaimie, is around to help set the historical record straight. He also provides quite a bit of punchy commentary as A.J. & Alison navigate their blooming attracting. While this makes for an adorable romcom – weaved through is a murder mystery that starts to pose a risk to many members of the cast and crew. Compounded by everyone assuming that A.J. has a mental illness so it’s difficult for them to believe the “insider” information from Jamie.

I really enjoyed the pacing as well as the action and romance scenes. It was just a delightful listen.

I adore the performances by both Patrick Lawlor and Angela Dawe. They’re both so skilled at accents, character voices, emotions, and tension. I’ll definitely listen to this one again.
