Peter Brandvold – Yakima Henry Bk 15 – Chiricahua Blues – Reviewed 11/11/21 – Read 11/9/21
We find Yakima Henry still the Town Marshall of Apache Springs, but a lot has happened since last time. The relationship with his new love, Julia is still on the rocks as she can not forgive his giving into the mistake he made with her sister, Emma. He has not told her the reason for the mistake as he does not want to heap more troubles on her plate, he is sure that she would have a fall out with her father over it. The iron horse has arrived in town, in fact right down Main Street causing him all kinds of problems. And then we have Emma showing up with a young man that is almost comatose only repeating one word, “Snake!” She found him near the canyon that contains the gold, with saddlebags loaded and the other man with him dead.
The Kid, his deputy, the Rio Grande Kid, is out of town, picking up a prisoner from Tombstone and was to return him to Apache Springs for his trial. He was the Indian agent the supplied diseased beef to the reservation. Unfortunately, he has his hands full when Indians attack the stagecoach. Things are looking bleak as both men deal with their troubles.
Join Yakima and The Kid as they both feel like the world is crumbling all around them…
What did I like? Holy cow crap, this is one exciting book!!! You all know that Yakima is among my favorite characters. His bull in the China cabinet ways do nothing to keep him out of trouble, and he sure stepped in and broke a ton this time. He is miserable and does not know what to do about it. And then there is the Kid… wow, he stepped into the biggest pile ever!!
What will you like? The action is over the top, emotional, exciting, intriguing, mysterious, and the next book in Yakima’s life story! The storyline will take hold of you from the very first page, not letting go till the last, and then giving you a cliffhanger to get you to the next book. Peter has weaved his magic again and given us one incredibly exciting read, don’t miss adding it to your Western Library today. Peter Brandvold’s “Chiricahua Blues” is available NOW!!!

I have enjoyed all the books in the Yakima series till this one. The author lost track of his story. The story starts with a stagecoach trip from Apache Springs to Tucson and then 3/4 of the way through the book the trip has suddenly changed to a trip from Tucson to Apache Springs. This inconsistency destroys the story. And the ending is so poor that it only amounts to a “come on” for the next book in the series. Unfortunately this book is so poorly written that it has destroyed my enthusiasm for the series I previously enjoyed.
