Texas Hold Him by Lisa Cooke
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
What I liked about the book?
It was set in New Orleans and much of the South. The story was a good one. A man is blackmailing Lottie Mason's father and she has to find a way to pay him $15,000 dollars to keep her daddy from hanging. Lottie does not tell her father about the blackmailing, he is weak and a little out of it since returning from the War.
Lottie gets on a gambling boat on its way to ST Louis for a high stakes game. She tries to get Dyer who is the best gambler on the boat to teach her poker. He refuses at first but knows that he can not resist.
Dyer has demons on his own and is chasing a ghost. The man who killed his family as punishment for Dyer fighting for the north.
What I did not like?
THis was a free read on Kindle and I doubt that I would have purchased it or even heard of the author had I not. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the story.
