A Woman Called Sage by Diann Mills

From the Back Cover:
They took away everything she loved ... now, she's out for revenge. Sage Morrow had it all: life on a beautiful Colorado ranch, a husband who adored her, and a baby on the way. Until five ruthless gunmen rode up to their ranch and changed her life forever. Now Sage is a bounty hunter bent on retribution.

Accompanied only by her majestic hawk, she travels throughout the Rocky Mountains in search of injustice, determined to stamp it out wherever it's found. The stakes are raised when two young boys are kidnapped and Sage is forced to work with Marshall Parker Timmons to rescue them. But Sage may ultimately get more than she bargained for. In this exciting historical romance set in the late 1800s, murder, intrigue, kidnapping, and questions of faith will keep you in suspense until the final pages.


My Review:
Thank you to CFBA and Zondervan for my copy of this western mystery. The plot keeps the reader interested as Sage, a part Indian bounty hunter searches for the killer of her husband and unborn child. She's been trained in the ways of the Ute Tribe to survive in the wild, and these skills enable her to hunt for the killer. Her adventures keep the pages turning.

In addition, romance weaves its spell with three suitors! That's the only glitch I see: after all, how can one disinterested woman capture so many hearts?

An interesting character is Hawk, a red-tailed hawk that Sage has nursed from infancy. They have a unique bond, and he communicates with her--not verbally, of course. If you like western adventure stories, you'll like this one.
