The contemporary western mystery by K.C. McRae. 

"Merry's got a problem. Fresh from a Texas penitentiary, she returns to Montana to discover that her cousin is suspected of killing a man, trouble the spitfire McCoy knows something about--but you won't have a problem with K. C. McRae's western mystery. Shotgun Moon is easy on the ear and the eye--definitely an author and a character to watch out for." --Craig Johnson, author of the Walt Longmire Series, the basis for A&E's hit television series Longmire
