Publisher's Summary

Chastity Snowden Whyte just wanted to mine for rocks, metal, and ice in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Rock mining in space was all she knew. It was all she was good at doing. She was comfortable living alone as the captain of her mining ship, the Sedona. Normally she managed with only infrequent trips to the planetoid Ceres for resupply.
She didn't want to have to make extra trips back to base because of equipment failure. She didn't want to become a mining tutor for a group of newcomers from Earth. And she certainly didn't want to get entangled in corporate conspiracies, piracy, kidnapping, murder, and worst of all...politics.

Didn't live up to it's billing.

Any additional comments?

By the time I got through 90% of the book, I knew I was going to return it, so I just stopped there. Juvenile is the best descriptor I can come up with. It's a hair under just ok. Female protagonist is over the top on the 'girl bad ass' stereotype. Male bad guys are over the top on the 'white country redneck' stereotype. Story itself is shallow and predictable. If you want a good sci fi 'small community that takes care of itself' story, try Heinlein's The Moon is a harsh mistress.
