Publisher's Summary

Pepper Paige is tired of her life as a dance-hall girl, and tired of fearing Jordan Beckett, a violent patron who has turned his attentions on her. When a stagecoach wrecks and an injured woman dies in her room, Pepper assumes her identity and leaves town. The dead woman was a refined, educated Christian on her way to marry a rancher she knew only through letters. Pepper chooses to assume that role. What she doesn't know is, the rancher has been killed by Indians and Tap Andrews is now passing himself off as the rancher. What will happen when the two meet?

A western with a twist

The title comes from the lyrics to the traditional cowboy ballad “Get along little doggies”. This is the first Stephen Bly book I have read. Zachariah Hatcher and Suzanne Cedar are engaged to be married, but they have never met in person. Suzanne travels to Colorado to marry Hatcher only both die on their way to the meeting site. Tap Andrews who was with Hatcher when he died agreed to go on and met Cedar’s stagecoach and tell Cedar of his death so she would not be left alone in a strange country. Only there is a stagecoach accident and Cedar is killed. Pepper a dance hall girl took care of Cedar as she died then takes her place to meet Hatcher. The book has lots of suspense with outlaws, and wondering if they will tell each other the truth about themselves. I believe this is one of the so called Christian fiction books. It is a typical western with a bit of a twist to the plot and a moral point to the story. Sometimes it’s hilarious, sometimes poignant but always entertaining. It is a short easy read that makes a good break from more complicated books. Jerry Sciarrio did a good job narrating the book.

A believable unbelievable story.

What did you love best about It's Your Misfortune and None of My Own?

Adventure, humor, and very engaging story. Wasted lives without purpose given incredible hope of a promising future.
A stand alone story that makes me want to hear the next episode.
Very entertaining, made a long drive much shorter.
