Cards & Caravans (2015) Cindy Spencer Pape (The Gaslight Chronicles)

Cards & CaravansSet in Scotland in 1859

Connor–who had been certain he’d been in love with Wink for decades, has gone off to Scotland.

And instantly falls in love.

As does the woman he ends up rescuing from being burned at the stake as a witch.

Yes, they were all clearly deranged, but they were the kindest, most engaging and most powerful lunatics she’d ever met.

Literally, she was being chased across the country to be executed as a witch, and then…

It had been a whirlwind of a week as they put together the plan and prepared for their various roles in the circus. Most importantly, Sir William had made sure all the charges against Belinda were dismissed.

That might be the shortest and must abrupt conclusion to a major story arc I’ve ever read.

And then there was this:

Without stopping to doubt herself, she lifted the pistol and fired. The flames faded and the man tumbled forward, away from Belinda.

That is kind of a ridiculous shot to make with a pistol.
