Scoundrels, working girls, royalty, and murder! Nelda’s Homecoming delivers a taste of the old West with cowboys and lawmen along with frontier women who are quick to take matters into their own hands. Agnes Alexander shines again with another trademark western, this time adding a mystery layer complete with a lurking killer. A lot of western, some romance, and some mystery put Nelda’s Homecoming in the can't-put-it-down category.

Nelda Gentry Barrington was married to the love of her life, Major Spencer Barrington. She trusted her husband and cared for him deeply and loved the life they were building. Then the gossip started and stories about another woman. She didn't want to believe what she was hearing but proof made it hard to ignore. But a more menacing secret lay between them, a secret that could not only destroy her marriage and take away the man she loved, but if Nelda discovered the real truth, she could lose everything, including her life.

A life-long resident of North Carolina, she counts traveling as one of her passions. She has visited 48 of the 50 states and says Alaska and Hawaii are on her bucket list, but are looking doubtful. Of course, she loves to read, but tries to limit herself to one or two books a week. Besides traveling and reading, Agnes enjoys jewelry making, watching old movies and helping new authors reach their goal of publication. But if you ask her, she’ll tell you her most favorite thing to do is to spend time with her family—especially her two grandchildren.
