about the book
The Red Ribbon by Pepper Basham (True Colors)
An Appalachian Feud Blows Up in 1912
In Carroll County, a corn shucking is the social event of the season, until a mischievous kiss leads to one of the biggest tragedies in Virginia history.
Ava Burcham isn’t your typical Blue Ridge Mountain girl. She has a bad habit of courtin’ trouble, and her curiosity has opened a rift in the middle of a feud between politicians and would-be outlaws, the Allen family. Ava’s tenacious desire to find a story worth reporting may land her and her best friend, Jeremiah Sutphin, into more trouble than either of them planned.
The end result?
The Hillsville Courthouse Massacre of 1912.
Corn shuckin’, feudin’, and courtin’… This sweet friends-to-more romance features a gripping suspense element cleverly tempered by humor and unforgettable characters! It’s a recipe sure to capture your attention as you devour it from cover to cover.
Ava’s passionate pursuit of truth and justice and Jeremiah’s patient pursuit of Ava instantly endeared these characters to my reader-heart. While the dangerous shadows that seem to lurk around their idyllic mountain town frequently increased my rate of page-turning, The Red Ribbon‘s storyline is never without hope. I especially appreciate the way suspenseful scenes are often chased by humorous situations or sweet romantic moments… a brave reader I am not.
One of the best things about a multi-author series and specifically True Colors is the variety! Pepper Basham has crafted an intriguing, inspiring, and entertaining story centered around a truly tragic historical event. I highly recommend this book (as well as the other True Colors stories I’ve read so far)!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions expressed are my own.
