Looking for a nice cold read full of excitement? Lindsay Buroker’s Flash Gold has got everything you’re looking for. The main character Kali McAlister is ready to enter her dogless sled in a competition for a nice financial prize that will help her move away from Moose Hollow, into someplace where no one has ever heard of her or her father, where she can get a fresh start as an inventor. Too bad everyone else in the race is out to get her. What she could use is a partner.
Enter Cedar, a quiet stranger who wants to team up. Kali doesn’t want to trust him, but she needs the help, and he seems to know what he’s doing. Plus he’s handy with a rifle, so she takes him on. Good thing, too, since this race is going to be anything but fair.
This is a novella and a quick fast-paced read, but I couldn’t wait to read the next one in the series! It was free for the Kindle and I’m dying to know what happens next. I gotta say, I’m a sucker for steampunk and add in the setting, and I’m sold!
