Back cover blurb:

1851: Niagara Falls, New York

The evidence has been well hidden the Thayers were confident that it was safe from the clutches of the ruthless Murphy Gang. But it has all been in vain. The lawless group is closing in on the family homestead, and seven-year-old Penny is given only one instruction: Run.

After two long years eagerly anticipating her fiancé’s return, twenty-year-old Julia Barrett is ready to make a fresh start with Adam Wolcott even if it means putting her dream of traveling west with the Mormons on hold. But when Adam’s return is overshadowed by the unexpected arrival of a young orphan girl in desperate need of help, Julia is drawn into a dangerous mystery that will threaten all she holds dear.

Charged with the protection of little Penny, Julia quickly finds herself relying on the help of Tom Harrison, an endearing young man who has long admired her from afar. Torn between two suitors, Julia soon uncovers a shocking trail of corruption and deceit-a discovery that pulls her inescapably into the race to locate telling evidence that Penny’s family gave their lives to protect.

Review:

I Love All Ronda’s books and this one did not disappoint

by  Jane  –   reviewed on  November 20, 2014

BETRAYED has twists and unexpected turns throughout the entire story. I love how the writer entwined the richness of the historical time and events into her writing. The characters were totally believable and I felt attached to each one of them. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a little romance, mystery, history and a great story line. Ronda has once again proven herself as an excellent writer. Jane Still author Mothers Daze and Crazy Daze of Motherhood.

What is your typical day like?

My youngest son is still in school, so we’re up early trying to get him out the door. I try to get my exercise in the morning, like a good girl, and then schedule what needs to be done for my family. I’m not a full-time writer—yet—although I’d like to be. After that, I feel like I can sit down and write. Although, some days, I get so wrapped up in my story, I barely acknowledge anyone around me, which I know they find extremely annoyingJ

Been there done that. 🙂 Do you write with music or not?

I love music, but I also love to sing, and I’ve found that I can’t sing and write at the same time. Somehow, that combination of multi-tasking doesn’t work well for me. Usually, I don’t write with music unless it helps me with a scene I’m working on. Epic battle scenes require some serious Lindsey Stirling playing in the background. Sometimes, music lyrics help me channel the romantic aspect in a book better.

I have found that too. What is the title of your book? (more…)
