I didn't know what to expect from it but it sounded interesting and I enjoyed reading it. It is mainly a historical fiction but the author blends a little fantasy element in it. 
We have a strong female protagonist who has faced many struggles with the biggest one being her husband's death during the war. 
The story has mystery, drama and some action.
I really liked the relationship dynamics between our characters and especially between Jessalyn and Sam. 
One thing that I didn't like was that the revealing of what happened with the livestock was a little rushed in my opinion. It could have been a little longer and more explained. 

Rating: 3,5 Stars

About the book:

Jessalyn Joy loves her husband, but she can’t help the feelings that arose when he volunteered for the Union army. When he comes back to her in a box instead of on his feet, those feelings complicate even more.
Jessalyn’s mourning period is cut short when something begins to attack the livestock in their small town, and greater dangers begin to threaten their provincial life. Thrown together with the new reverend, one of her own students, and a strange man somehow related to her husband’s passing, Jessalyn must find a way to stop the evils that threaten her husband’s first and ultimately last home.

Set in the Southwestern home front, Huszar blends a taste of fantasy into a startling down-to-earth world, creating a high stakes adventure for this strong female protagonist and her band of amateur sleuths.

See you in the next post and don't forget to keep reading!!!
