What They Are Saying About Nelda’s Homecoming
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.
