A Long Way From Ordinary

A Long Way From Ordinary by Ann Charles and Sam Lucky
Series: Deadwood Undertaker Series Book 2
256 pages
Published December 28th 2019 by Ann Charles & Sam Lucky

“There’s gold in them there hills!” … and something deadly, too.

Danger the likes Boone McCreery has never seen is brewing in the Black Hills. Fresh in from Santa Fe, he’s returned to Deadwood to seek justice for his uncle—and maybe to see about a girl. Little did he know his search for justice would have him stumbling into a hornets’ nest beyond his worst nightmare. One thing is for certain, the trouble he and his compadres chance upon deep in the trees is a LONG way from ordinary.

Kick up your spurs and enjoy another rip-roaring, wild ride with Boone, Rabbit, Clementine, and Hank through the pages of the second book in the Deadwood Undertaker series.

From the bestselling, multiple award-winning, humorous Deadwood Mystery series comes a new herd of tales set in the same Deadwood stomping grounds, only back in the days when the Old West town was young.


My thoughts about A Long Way From Ordinary ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first lines.)

First line—"'Waves of death were crashing into The Pyre, drowning Clementine Johanssen in corpses."

I love Ann Charles and her Deadwood mystery series! And I love these new wacky characters that she and Sam Lucky have introduced us to in this Undertaker series.

A Long Way From Ordinary takes us back to the old west Deadwood town as we watch Clementine, Boone, Rabbit, and Hank try to figure out what their mission is and how to defeat the 'others'. Get ready for some intense scenes as well as some hilarity as the foursome become better acquainted and as they struggle to take on the the demons.

I love this series and if you are looking for something that will keep you on the edge of your seat, as well as make you laugh out loud, this is the series for you. Give it a try!

About the authors

Ann Charles

Ann lives in the beautiful Northern Arizona mountains with her clever husband, charming kids, and an incredibly sassy cats. After many years and several colleges, she managed to obtain her Bachelor’s Degree in English with an emphasis on creative writing from the University of Washington.

Her books are character-driven, mixed-genre mysteries full of mystery and mayhem, comedy and spice, and whatever else feels right. Sisters in Crime was kind enough to let her join their membership years ago. In addition, she’s a member of Western Writers of America.

Ann has written a bunch of contemporary, award-winning novels in multiple series full of quirky characters with whom she loves to spend time as much as reality allows. Right now, while you’re reading this, she’s probably frolicking around in another story.

While her reading preferences range from adventure to horror to western and mystery, ever since she tried on her first training bra, she has loved a good mix of romance, too.

When she’s not dabbling in fiction, she’s penning writing-themed articles or standing on her workshop soapbox, sharing what she has learned over the years about the writing craft and marketing.
