Laws of Attraction is, to me, the heart of this series, the inspiration for it.
I read a book about the First Woman Justice of the Peace in America. She was in Wyoming. So I thought, maybe my book could be about the SECOND Justice of the Peace.
Have you ever noticed that no one argues over the second anything?
Sure, claim 1st place and people want to fight.
No the Grand Canyon isn't the most beautiful view in America.
But if you say your view is SECOND, everyone smug-ly thinks, dang right you're second, cuz MY choice is first, you go ahead and be second.
So I'm sure somewhere there is a second female Justice of the Peace, but no one is in here demanding I admit that. So far!
Nell is a seamstress...in a frontier town full of men. The few women who live in or near Pine Valley, Wyoming make their own dresses. Nell LOVES making pretty dresses. She likes lace and ruffles and ribbons. Early on after she moved to town, she made the dire mistake of agreeing to make a cowboy a pair of chaps, even though she has no idea how. But he brought in an old pair and a piece of tanned cowhide, and she figured it out and now, everyone wants a pair of chaps.
They don't care what she charges or how long they have to wait.
Nell is making a fortune and she's not happy.
Until she finds a hapless homesteader widower, with three poorly dressed, half-grown daughters.
They all need dresses. He has no money. Nell wheedles him into letting her hire them and earn their dresses. She'll teach them how to sew. She'll teach them how to make chaps.
It's all going to be such fun. And then the murderous stagecoach robbers, the Deadeye Gang strike again. Nell, the widow of a lawman back in Missouri, knows a whole lot about investigating a crime just from listening to her lunkhead of a dead lawman husband.
When she gets involved in investigating the crimes, and then the local Justice of the Peace resigns, the sheriff pitches her name to take over.
And then people start trying to kill her.
Judge Nell needs to discover and expose the robbers. Brand needs to figure out how to be the fathers to girls.
They all need to stay alive long enough to fall in love.
Let's talk about bragging rights for your town or church or school or whatever.
I happen to live in the SECOND oldest settlement in Nebraska. Well, nearby, not IN.
Every town has a claim to fame. What's yours?
And have you ever worked this type of bragging rights into your story?
