Lynna Banningabout this book: The Bride & the Bandit is a light-hearted western romance by the author of Gauchos & Gumption and Lady Lavender. This story features an imaginative small-town librarian in Maple Falls, Oregon, who is writing a summer theatrical, "The Trials of Cleopatra," and the undercover detective who comes to town, posing as a photographer, and ends up playing Antony to her Cleopatra, capturing the notorious Black Bandit, and falling in love---all in one summer.
Geneva Stanton inherits the Maple Falls town library, which suits her just fine since she longs to be a writer and the town provides a ready supply of potential case members for her play "The Trials of Cleopatra. Out West, she observes a side of life she has never seen before--the plight of struggling impoverished minority families--and she desperately wants to help them by every means possible, even if it means beggaring herself in the process.
When Franklin Burkett steps off the train from Colorado, he sets up a portrait photography studio. But Frank is no photographer; he's actually an undercover detective sent to Maple Falls to capture the mysterious Black Bandit who has been robbing the townspeople. His reward is a promised pardon for the prison sentence he is currently serving.
