Staying in character can be murder when Cat Latimer and the members of her writers' retreat head for a ghost town . . . 

Cat and the members of her writers' retreat have just arrived in Outlaw, Colorado, an "Old West" tourist town complete with inhabitants dressed up as famous figures from history. But this authentic slice of Americana takes a murderous turn when a college student masquerading as a 19th-century saloon girl becomes history herself.

Was she the intended target? Or did she take a hit meant for someone else? With a cast of suspects to choose from--including some notorious gunslingers and the sleazy town founders--Cat must unhorse the real culprit before a real-life ghost story is given a killer twist . . . 

My Thoughts: 

Cat, Shauna, Seth and Uncle Pete are back to entertain us again this time Shauna and Cat are hosting another retreat this one has a lot of historical romance authors and Jessi Ball whose gotten the opportunity to be here as part of the college.  They are having fun going to Outlaw Colorado and visit the old west dress up as saloon girls and having a great time when something seems off with Jessi and Cat tries to help her but of course not long and Cat is being informed how Jessi's roommate Danielle has been found strangled.  Who killed the young college girl and why?  

The more Cat and Jessi learn about Danielle the less they seem to like her.  Add to the mix something mysterious happening with Jessi's financial accounts.  Someone seems determined to destroy Jessi and Cat can't figure out who or why?  Will Cat figure it out in time or will someone shut down Jessi once and for all?

I enjoy these trips to Colorado we learn so much and this one also shows you how Shauna has been dealing with her boyfriend's murder.  Of course in this one Cat has her work cut out for her as these authors are determined to play the role of Jessica Fletcher.  Will Cat ever stop getting calls from Uncle Pete about the authors running off where they shouldn't be?
