Review: Beneath a Dakota Cross (Fortunes of the Black Hills #1)

User Review  - Jerry - Goodreads

Like a television series premiere, Beneath a Dakota Cross leaves a lot of loose ends unresolved. That's not a bad thing, though; it's the first book in a hexalogy, and it was entertaining nonetheless. Those who enjoy old-school Westerns such as Gunsmoke or Bonanza will probably enjoy this.

Review: Beneath a Dakota Cross (Fortunes of the Black Hills #1)

User Review  - Keith Bell - Goodreads

A Christian western. Not bad but totally predictable. Main character talks to himself through out. Not as unspoken thoughts but a spoken running monologue of whatever is running through his mind. I'lll read more of the series if I have nothing else to read. Read full review
