Cactus Rose Release this week


This Wednesday, 8/27, A Law of Her Own by Linda Laroque will be released. In this Miniature Rose, Charity Dawson time travels to the old west and modern forensics meets the old west, in this tale of intrigue and romance.


She won’t let an innocent man hang—
When Charity Dawson resigns her father’s corporate law firm to pursue a career as a trial lawyer, she gets more of a change than she wanted. She finds herself transported to 1888 Texas in the middle of a murder trial.
Turner Reardon is on trial for killing his mistress. He’s given up all hope when an oddly dressed young woman disrupts his trial, claiming she can prove his innocence. Her testimony is brilliant, but his optimism is short lived when she also claims she’s a lawyer.
Charity doesn’t know how she arrived in Prairie, and no one believes she actually went to law school. Her evidence is tossed out and Turner is sentenced to hang. She has only one chance to save an innocent man’s life and find the real killer.
This is the second time travel short story Linda has written. Her first, Desires of the Heart, a Miniature Vintage Rose will be released later this year. It is set in post WWII in Carlisle, U.K.
