What I’m reading this week (May 24, 2016)

Lady at the O.K. Corral: The True Story of Josephine Marcus Earp, by Ann Kirschner.

This is a relatively new story of Wyatt Earp’s long-time mate, written by a woman who admits she and her brother grew up on the old Wyatt Earp TV series way back when. Thought it would be a good read for the week of Wyatt Earp Days, the big celebration in Tombstone this weekend.

Will follow it up with a reread of my friend Glenn G. Boyer’s I Married Wyatt Earp, the book that launched a thousand controversies.

For fiction, I’m starting over with the Joanna Brady series, which is now up to 18, all in all. The first of these, Desert Heat, is where Joanna becomes a widow and runs for sheriff, not to give too much away, and it’s been two decades since I’ve read it. It’s fun to get the refresher, especially since I’m taking some huge fans on the Jeep Tour.
