Pecos Valley RevivalBook - 2011
It's early October 1923, and three interesting things are going on in the generally dull town of Rosedale, New Mexico: the fall cattle drive, the fall rodeo, and a tent revival. Annabelle Blue is excited about the first two events. The last one might be okay if it weren't for the Reverend Milo Strickland's sister, Esther, whose ethereal loveliness has captivated all the men in town, including Annabelle's long-time beau, Phil Gunderson. In spite of this, Annabelle pitches in and helps prepare for the rodeo, which is always accompanied by a community-wide party and barbecue. This year's rodeo and barbecue are being held at the Gundersons' ranch. Everything is going fine until one of the stars of the rodeo, Kenny Sawyer, falls ill and later dies. Shocked to learn that Kenny was poisoned, Annabelle begins to do some snooping. A fun, fast-paced mystery set in a tiny southwestern town at the beginning of the 20th Century.
