The Dangerous Thaw of Etta Capstone was a quarter-finalist for Amazon's 2013 Breakthrough Novel of the Year Award."Revenge is very good eaten cold"For most people food serves a purpose and the purpose isn't complicated. You eat it. But for Etta Capstone it's not that simple. An excellent cook and the owner of a successful restaurant on the Texas frontier, she's had years to perfect other uses for food besides the obvious. Food as shield. As wall. As love letter. As peace offering. Food as life-well, half a life, anyway. Etta's not like other women. She's been frozen in the past, frozen heart and soul for a long time, captive to memories of unbearable violence. Until suddenly, with the sighting of the man she holds responsible for her painful history, Etta begins to consider the possibility of a more satisfying future. She knows that with a good cooking fire and the steady heat of a patient man's love, a lot of things are possible-even change, even happiness-and to her way of thinking, all that stands in the way of a bright future is one wicked man, one necessary execution, and lessons in good penmanship. So as a woman used to creating dishes from diverse and rare ingredients, Etta concocts a deadly recipe using just those elements. She knows better than most that life offers few guarantees, and if all it takes to free her from the past is one wicked man, one necessary execution, and lessons in good penmanship, she'll take the risk and make the effort, no matter who gets burned. Because after years of keeping the fires of love and the warmth of hope at a distance, Etta Capstone is finally ready to thaw.From the Publisher's Weekly ABNA review:"...Etta isn't written as genre readers might expect, but it's effective nonetheless and calls to mind the subtle hand of Lorraine Heath's western historicals."… (mais)

I don't often gravitate towards westerns in movies or books, which is strange because whenever I see or read one I usually enjoy it, and this was no exception. Etta Capstone was a totally remarkable heroine and her story was heartbreaking and inspiring. My one quibble with the novel was that her plan for revenge, the central plot line of the book, was idiotic and ill-conceived and I didn't believe that a smart woman like her would ever have thought it could work.

However as this plan unfolded, it provided the backdrop to the brutal, tragic story of Etta and her family; how she came to run a restaurant in a small Western town; how she became surrogate mother to a fragile, damaged young woman; and how she forged relationships with two fascinating men. All this would culminate in an exciting and satisfying conclusion where Etta was able to put the ghosts of her past to rest and move forward to a more hopeful future. ( )
