    2. This was assigned as this month s book club read Having read and had issues with the first book, I was pleased that this one addressed some of the things that made me dislike Inez I still didn t like her a whole lot the book began with her wanting very much to have her son back, which is a trait that I like to see in a mother, but it fizzed to nothing Again The author did show us Inez s love of men, but juggling two in this book, even while she s still technically married didn t add to her likab [...]

    3. This is the second book in the Silver Rush series by Ann Parker These books are entertaining hops through the wild west and it covered the silver mining that was going on in Colorado in the late 1800 s Also the railroad was getting established There were many historical events that provided twists and turns in this book I enjoy this particular era and even though the books in this series are a little softer than I prefer, it was still fun and they mentioned places where my parents are from and e [...]

    4. Interesting historical mystery set in 19th century Leadville, CO Railroad machinations, post war takes places 15 years after the end of the American Civil War politics, and a strong female heroine help keep it from turning into a romance If you like watching The Pinkertons, try reading this book this is the second in a series of at least three novels, the others of which series I aim to read.

    5. I rolled straight into the second book after the first and loved it almost as much The author s writing had got better and although I wasn t as taken with the story it had the right level of complexity and suspense.

    9. Iron Ties by Ann Parker was a good historic realistic fiction book It was educatonal but entertaining to read I liked how the book had relatable events to people in our century, but didn t like how it talked and gave a lot of boring details in the beginning Once your in about 1 4 of hte book it starts getting really interesting and you can really imagine how the characters look and act and can really imagine the different places like the Silver Queen Saloon that a character name Inez Stannert ow [...]

    11. The second book, Iron Ties, in her Silver Rush mysteries is just as entertaining as the first I like the way she weaves history and fiction together in a plot that keeps you engaged She does an excellent job bringing her characters alive you wonder what they are going to say and do next While I figured out some of the plot there was enough left I did not to keep me reading through the last page Well done and a darn good read Preston Holtry, author Death in Emily 3 books Kindle presholtry.webs

    12. In Iron Ties, the second in the series, Leadville erupts into violence as resistance to the new Denver Rio Grande line explodes Quirky, independent and memorable characters like brothel madam Frisco Flo and saloon owner Inez Stannert are delightful as are the appearances of notables like Ulysses S Grant Parker s grandfather was a gandy dancer on the Colorado railroads and her Leadville, Colorado ancestors were part of the silver rush in the 1880 s.

    13. I liked it, maybe not quite as much as the first probably because all the railroad history kind of bogged down in the middle, but became clearer as the novel progressed , but I thought the ending was strong It helps that I very much like and relate to Inez and love Colorado history it d still be a good book even if I wasn t interested in the history I am looking forward to reading the next.

    14. Iron Ties was praised by Booklist as being carefully researched a carefully crafted novel that will appeal to readers of mysteries, historical fiction, and genre westerns The railroad is coming to Leadville and its rich Rocky Mountain mines And who is coming to celebrate its arrival but Ulysses S Grant, 18th President of the United States Like other residents in the Colorado boomtown in the summer of 1880, Inez Stannert regards the news as mixed Find out why

    15. Overall I really enjoyed the characters, however the plot lost control and spiraled into confusion towards the end of the book The historical plot sometimes went over my head with the multiple talk of generals and who and why they were trying to blow up the railroads I still am unsure of the real underline reason Despite the ending plot, the characters were well developed and Parker s sense of imagery carries reader back in time, an enjoyable read overall.

    16. Four stars for the story, one star for the setting I just love Ann Parker s books And like the first book of the series this one was also set in Leadville, Colorado Reading the book was just like diving into the town s history.

    17. Ann Parker writes wonderful adventures that are clever, well researched, and allow one to travel back in time through a strong female character.

    18. I don t know why it took me so long to read Ann Parker Possibly because I am not so drawn to historical mysteries But I loved Parker s characters and especially enjoyed her historical research.

    19. Highly recommend this book I will continue this series A fun, easy read for historical fiction fans or fans of historical Colorado.
