This book by Kane was one of my keepers-not a reprint. It was a wonderful read. Loved the story line and Kane is a good storyteller.
From the back cover:
Gabe Donovan's regrets for a life of gambling and drinking come fast and hard when he finds himself hanging from the short end of a rope, framed for a crime he didn't commit. But fate has a little detour on the road to the afterlife, complete with a bargain from Old Scratch himself. The deal: two months of life in exchange for the soul of the scoundrel who should have hunge in Gabe's noose.
Maggie Benson realizes that only a desperate woman would hire a dusty, down-on-his-luck stranger with a past, but she has a hotel to run in Regret, Nevada, and handymen aren't exactly lining up at her door. Destiny, however, comes in strange packages and after one magical kiss, she knows Gabe is hers. Come Hell or high water, she's not about to let go of this fallen angel, even if she has to take on the Devil himself...
What a fun combination! A cowboy fantasy with humor all over the place. Our hero(GABE) is an anti-hero but so charming you'll root for him to overcome all the bad luck that has followed him to his own hanging. And any guy who's a better cook than the woman(MAGGIE) running a "restaurant" serving terrible food is likable and oh-so-charming! When the fantasy spoof comes into play you'll love the little unexpected twists at the end and a cute sub-plot with a gal named Sugar who is anything but sweet!
Very sweet story, enjoyed reading this book.
This was a really good book. The plot flowed smoothly and it was funny. I wish it would of been longer.
I've had this book for a while, but never read.
