This is no ordinary book club! When the group chooses a book, they are whisked away from reality to find themselves totally immersed in the story. The characters, the setting, and the murder all come to life. In order to exit the book, they’ll need to solve the mystery and reach The End. 

This time, the club chooses a mystery that takes place in a quaint western town – in the old Wild West. That sounds like great fun, until they arrive in the dusty old town in the Arizona desert, among cowboys and saloons. They discover that the outhouse isn’t the worse thing about this trip. 

The good news is that Paige, Glo, Zell, Frank, and the other members of the club discover plenty of surprises here, and they have a great time visiting a piece of history. They’ll get to live through many exciting moments as they unravel this cozy mystery story.

My Review 

My favorite book club is back for another adventure.  This time we go on a journey back in time to the wild west in Bandana, Arizona.  I so wish there was a real book club like this where the members literally are part of the book.  The only way they can go home is to solve the mystery.

Paige, Glo and the rest of the team are met with some huge surprises when they land in Arizona.  They, also, find themselves with not one, but two mysteries to solve.  They quickly learn that the wild west isn’t the easiest place to live.  There are outhouses, cowboys and saloon fights.  Not what they are used to at all.

I can’t say enough how much I love this series.  Isn’t it every book lover’s dream to be part of the story? The cast of characters are a fun, quirky and lively group, to say the last.  This includes a talking cat named Frank. Frank is a wisecracking guy who makes me laugh all the time.  It’s no surprise that Frank is my favorite character, although the humans are nice too :)

This is a fast-paced mystery with an intriguing storyline to keep you guessing.  Elizabeth Pantley has quickly become one of my favorite cozy mystery authors and she has outdone herself with this one.

Cowboys and Chaos is pure fun.  It’s filled with charm and a truly delightful way to spend an afternoon. I’m already looking forward to the next book in the series.  I can’t wait to see where we go next.
