'Packs a big punch with grit and raw passion. There is mystery, murder, Indians, bounty hunters and intrigue. The women are brave, intelligent and don't take crap from anyone. Lenhardt is a talented, creative writer; she has a grand slam out of the park with Sawbones.' -- RT Book Reviews (Top Pick!) 4.5 stars
'Raw, gritty and sometimes graphic, Melissa Lenhardt has crafted a page-turner. In Sawbones, the women are smart, brave and at times 'incorrigible.' The plot twists, unique characters and intriguing story of passion and betrayal make this a book well worth discovering.' -- Jane Kirkpatrick, New York Times bestselling author of A Light in the Wilderness
'Absolutely loved it! I couldn't tear myself away from Sawbones. An epic story of love and courage that sweeps from east to west, Sawbones will rip right through you.' -- Marci Jefferson, author of Girl on the Golden Coin
'You will fall in love with Catherine, as I did, as she struggles to assert herself in a violent and treacherous world, fighting not only prejudice but evil.' -- Sandra Dallas, New York Times bestselling author
'Sawbones is a thoroughly original, smart and satisfying hybrid, perhaps a new subgenre: the feminist Western.' -- Lone Star Literary Life
