Where the Trail Ends, #2
Author: Anna Schmidt
Pubdate: December 6, 2016
Genre: Historical Western Romance
From acclaimed author Anna Schmidt comes a sweeping historical Western romance about the unbreakable bonds of family, second chances, and a whole lot of heart in the Wild West.
"This is me, Addie," Jess murmured. "You and me, the way we always were." But it wasn't, no matter how much she wished it were true. They were different now. She would always love him... But can she trust him not to break her heart?
Jess Porterfield fled to the big city after his father's sudden death, leaving behind his family ranch-and his childhood sweetheart. Now Jess has returned as the local lawman, determined to prove his worth...and win back the one woman he could never live without.
Young frontier doctor Addie Wilcox was devastated when Jess left her behind. Now he's back and it's difficult to remember why she should keep her distance. But with the town's richest man set to see her hang for a crime she didn't commit, Addie must put her faith in the lawman who broke her heart-and trust that together they'll find their second chance at love.
Talking with author Anna Schmidt!
How did you get the idea for this particular novel?
Because it is a sequel and part of a series, the idea was already there. The character of Addie Wilcox came out of book one. She was supposed to be a secondary character, but everyone loved her, so she gets her story told.
What is your favorite scene in your new release?
Probably the opening scene--the party where Addie realizes Jess has returned, and suddenly the life she thought she had accepted is turned upside down.
What are you working on now and when can we expect it to be available?
Last Chance Cowboys is a 4-book series. Book 3, THE OUTLAW, will be out in 2017. The finale of the series, THE RANCHER, is not yet scheduled but probably late 2017 or early 2018. I'm working on THE RANCHER now and having a tough time saying farewell to the Porterfield family.
What do you like to do when you are not writing?
Travel (just came back from a great trip to New Mexico); take long walks; read; go to movies and plays; and I am an avid college basketball fan.
What is one interesting fact about you that readers don’t know?
I have a masters in theater arts and once actually performed on an off-Broadway stage.
Top 3 things on your bucket list?
I’m not someone who plans…I take life one day at a time and remain open to the serendipity.
Do you have a genre that you can see yourself writing in the future?
I would love to do a mainstream story where the challenges the main character faces are far more complex and multi-faceted.
