Another entertaining Western-Adventure-Romance, courtesy of C. J. Petit!

Mr. Petit, your books may not be classics, masterpieces, works of art, or NYT's #1 bestsellers. And yes, they may contain a few typos. You are, however, absolutely one of my favorite authors.
Your novels are enjoyable, entertaining, fun, informative, educational and historical. Your stories include fascinating details covering a wide range of topics and professions, from the American West era: firearms and ballistics, law enforcement and the legal profession, horses and cattle and sheep (oh my), river boats, stage coaches, trains, the telegraph, cowboys and Indians, gunslingers, bank robbers, bounty hunters, astronomy and telescopes, anatomy and physiology, mining, the practice of medicine, politics, corruption - just to name a few. I love reading them.
Your main characters are always good and honorable men and women. Great role models for today's young people - the ones who are actually able to read. Sadly, literacy is declining in America - just as many of our books are being censored.
Thank you for keeping your digital book prices so affordable. I personally appreciate both your generosity to your readers - and especially your prolificacy.
I've purchased every one of your books - and have read all but Alwen's Dream, Book Six of the Evans family saga. Have postponed reading book six because I plan to reread the first five in the series before reading the final book - so I can re-familiarize myself with the large number of characters and story lines.
Regarding your "Much Longer than Usual Author's Note" following 'The Inheritance'. I've no doubt whatsoever that you wrote each and every one of your books! Yes, your writing has improved with experience, as one would naturally expect. I suspect the doubters have never read the author information segment linked to your name in the online Kindle store, which clearly explained how and why you got in to writing.
The last time I read your very interesting mini-autobiography, it ended mid sentence. Periodically I check to see if it has been completed. I assume Amazon had an arbitrary length limit that cut off the end. I just rechecked and found that you've edited, shortened and completed your author info segment - and explained why I've never found your website! Alas, I am not on Facebook, so my comments are posted as part of this review.
As a cancer survivor myself, I salute you. After all you've been through, you marched on to a third full time, successful career. I hope you keep writing for many years to come, as do all of your loyal fans.
To those who are new to C.J. Petit's books - Happy reading! 😁
