Loved these two stories as much as I loved The General and the Horse Lord. She writes a particular kind of character I adore, big, burly and wears a shiny sheriff star. Sigh. I'm so easy! Loved Deigo too, he was so beautiful, clever and strong. Some of the mystery aspect was at times a little over the top, but I was enjoying the characters and setting so much I didn't really give a hoot. Loved the whole thing to bits.
