For those Sandra Dallas fans, here is another one of hers The Chili Queen I just picked it up at the library.
Sandra also has a website www.sandradallas.comLife may have been hard on Addie French, but when she meets friendless Emma Roby on a train, all her protective instincts emerge. Emma's brother is seeing her off to Nalgitas to marry a man she has never met. And Emma seems like a lost soul to Addie-someone who needs Addie's savvy and wary eye. It isn't often that Addie is drawn to anyone as a friend, but Emma seems different somehow. When Emma's prospective huband fails to show up at the train depot, Addie breaks with all her principles to shelter the girl at her brothel, The Chili Queen. But once Emma enters Addie's life, the secrets that unfold and schemes that are hatched rouse both women to question everything they thought they knew. With Sandra Dallas's Trademark humor, charm, and pathos, The Chili Queen will satisfy anyone who has ever longed for happiness.
