My Heart Belongs in the Superstition Mountains: Carmela’s Quandary by Susan Page Davis

Book Description:  Since orphaned at age twelve, Carmela Wade has lived a lie orchestrated by her uncle, pretending to be a survivor of an Indian kidnapping and profiting from telling her made-up story on the speaker circuit. But as she matures into adulthood, Carmela hates the lies and longs to be free. On a stagecoach in Arizona Territory, Carmela and her uncle are fellow passengers with US Marshal Freeland McKay and his handcuffed prisoner.
The stage is attacked. Now a chance to make a new life may suddenly be within Carmela’s reach. . .if she can survive the harsh terrain and being handcuffed to an unconscious man.

My Thoughts:  I enjoy stories by Susan Page Davis.  So I grabbed the cahnce to read this one.
Carmela Wade is orphaned and unfortunately she lives with her uncle who makes her lie about her life story so that he can make money.  Carmella hates the deceit and cheating people.
She and her uncle have to take a stagecoach through Arizona territory and on the stage is a US marshal Freeland McKay with a prisoner he keeps in handcuffs.
This is where the story gets interesting and filled with action.  The stage is attacked by Indians.  And Carmella being smart sees this as her only chance to escape her uncle and life filled with deceit.  
So she decides to flee but remember she is in Arizona territory in the Superstition Mountains.  This rugged terrain and not of the faint of heart.  And to top it off she decides to "rescue" the prisoner.
He is handcuffed and unconscious.  
What a story!
I loved it !  And can't wait for the next one!
