Wowsers. I thought the first book in this series was great, but it had nothing on this intense sequel. "The Mule Tamer II: Chica's Ride" is action packed from the get go. It's all up in your face and makes the the first novel in the series look like a bedtime tale.
The story starts off with the abduction of Arvel and Chica's eight year old daughter by a bunch of merciless Mexican bandits. Chica hatches a plan to get her daughter back and enlists Arvel's mother, Alice Walsh, to help her. Arvel surprisingly isn't the hero of the story. Having just suffered a stroke, he is bedridden and heartbroken . He wants to rescue his daughter but he can't get out of bed.
Rebecca suffers along with other captives as they're toted deep into Mexico. The gang is known for the ruthlessness towards women and to life and Rebecca's good looks and youth save her from initial raping, but "the gold hat" wants her to be part of her harem. Will Chica rescue her in time? Read this story and find out. I promise you won't be able to put it down. I can't wait to read the third installment!
I received this book for free from the author in return for my unbiased, honest opinion.
