ABOUT THE BOOK
Thad McKane comes to Goldtree at the request of the town council. The town has been plagued by bootlegging operations, and Thad believes he can find the culprit. After he earns enough money doing sheriff work, he wants to use it to pay for his training to become a minister.
Thad is immediately attracted to the beautiful singer who performs in Asa Baxter's unusual opera house, but when he hears her practicing bawdy tunes, he begins to wonder if she's far less innocent than she seems. And when Sadie appears to be part of the very crimes he's come to investigate, is there any hope the love blossoming between them will survive?

This is a wonderful novel with a great set of characters. Some, such as Sadie and Thad, immediately endeared themselves to me. Others, like Miss Selva and Miss Melva, who ran the mercantile, made me laugh at their quirks. Still others made me suspicious and a bit perturbed - but they will remain unnamed so as not to spoil the story! Beyond the plot and characters, however, this book has a wonderful message about the subtle nature of temptation and the dangers of compromise. As the story built to its climax, I found it impossible to put down and stayed up way too late until I finished!
