About the book:

An Appalachian Feud Blows Up in 1912

Step into True Colors — a new series of Historical Stories of Romance and American Crime

In Carroll County, a corn shucking is the social event of the season, until a mischievous kiss leads to one of the biggest tragedies in Virginia history. Ava Burcham isn’t your typical Blue Ridge Mountain girl. She has a bad habit of courtin’ trouble, and her curiosity has opened a rift in the middle of a feud between politicians and would-be outlaws, the Allen family. Ava’s tenacious desire to find a story worth reporting may land her and her best friend, Jeremiah Sutphin, into more trouble than either of them planned.

​The end result? The Hillsville Courthouse Massacre of 1912.

My review:

I think this was a perfect addition to the True Colors series! It had just the right amount of suspense. To make it even better, it had kissing scenes that Pepper Basham is known for! I think she did this story justice. I liked that she included the historical facts at the back and tells what became of the real people after this event.

My rating:  5-Stars-300x57
