The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper ~ by Kathleen Y'Barbo

I so enjoyed this book! The Confidential Live of Eugenia Cooper, by Kathleen Y'Barbo was light, fun, romantic and just thoroughly entertaining! It is a fast-paced story filled with adventure, drama, and humor. Gennie seeks adventure and gets more than she bargained for when she leaves her genteel, upper-class New York home to experience the Wild West for a brief stay in Denver. Along the way she learns some valuable lessons about life, love and perceptions. This book simply made me smile!


The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper
By Kathleen Y’Barbo

The future is clearly mapped out for New York socialite Eugenia “Gennie” Cooper, but she secretly longs to slip into the boots of her favorite dime-novel heroine and experience just one adventure before settling down. When the opportunity arises, Gennie jumps at the chance to experience the Wild West, but her plans go awry when she is drawn into the lives of silver baron Daniel Beck and his daughter and finds herself caring for them more than is prudent–especially as she’s supposed to go back to New York and marry another man.

As Gennie adapts to the rough-and-tumble world of 1880s Colorado, she must decide whether her future lies with the enigmatic Daniel Beck or back home with the life planned for her since birth. The question is whether Daniel’s past–and disgruntled miners bent on revenge–will take that choice away from her.

  1. I am very interested in book reviews, what a great way to give us a sneek peak in the covers of a book.

    I also love your blog, sunflowers and planting seeds, my heart as well.

    But the best, I just discovered you live in sunny AZ! Our family is moving back in a few days. That means, I might actually get to meet you. Yipee!
