From the author of Gunslingers: A Story of the Old West comes a second novel about frontier freedom and justice on the American Frontier and the Old West.

Red River Reunion is a classic Western Fiction novel set in 1877 that traces the lives of U.S. Deputy Marshal Luxton Danner and Texas Ranger Wes Payne during their latest Texas adventures, where they risk everything to defend the meek, uphold frontier law, and satisfy their pursuit of doing what no other men can.

Fans of Layne’s distinctive style will enjoy his rich characters and period details that bring the Old West back to life


*A Thank you to Labrador Publishing for sending me this book. Here is my honest and unbiased Review*



Hello Fellow Readers,

It's been a while since I've read a really good historical fiction book, much less a western, but Layne did not disappoint! From the very first page I was sucked in and did not want to stop. It opens with a bit of a shoot out, and I can honestly say that they way Layne writes his action scenes was amazing and really made me feel as if I'm right there. I think the shootouts and the action packed scenes were my favorite but that doesn't mean that non-action moments were not as engaging. 

The way Layne crafted his book as if he had first hand knowledge of being in the 1800s Western America, which shows how much research and care went into this book. The book is divided between various POVs with a grand ensemble of characters that were a bit hard to keep up with. There were a couple of characters (Wes and Ben) that really stood out to me. This is the second book in a sereies and I wish I would have read the first book , since I feel that it would have helped me with all the characters, but this book is still good as a standalone. I had absolutely no trouble following along with the story. 

Layne really packs it in with this book; Action, Romance, and a greedy town boss really makes this a must read for all old-fashion Western lover. Overall, an extremely well written book for a genre that needs it.
