LOCAL WRITER DEBUTS HISTORICAL MYSTERY AT PAGE ONE 3:00 PM SUNDAY, JULY 15
Kari Bovee, former technical writer, will be at Page One Books 3:00 pm Sunday, July 15, to talk about and sign historical mystery "Girl with a Gun: An Annie Oakley Mystery," her first novel.
The book is described as such: "Fifteen-year-old Annie Oakley is the sole supporter of her widowed mother and two siblings. An expert markswoman and independent spirit, she hunts game to sell to the local mercantile to make ends meet instead of accepting a marriage proposal that could solve all her problems. After a stunning performance in a shooting contest against the handsome and famous sharpshooter Frank Butler, Annie is offered a position in the renowned Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show. Finally, she has a chance to save the nearly foreclosed family farm and make her dreams come true. But then her Indian assistant is found dead in her tent, and Annie is dubious when the local coroner claims the death was due to natural causes. When another innocent is murdered, Annie begins to fear the deaths are related to her. And to make matters worse, her prized horse, Buck, a major part of her act, is stolen. Annie soon discovers that the solution to her problems lies buried in a padlocked Civil War trunk belonging to the show’s manager, Derence LeFleur. And so, with the help of a sassy, blue-blooded reporter, Annie sets out to find her horse, solve the murders, and clear her name."
Bovee was born in northern New Mexico. Early on, a love of reading, writing, and history bloomed, and her most prized gift at Christmas one year was a typewriter. From then on, she dreamed of being a writer. After graduating with a B.A. in English Literature, Kari became a technical writer at a Fortune 500 tech company, but the love of storytelling never waned. While staying at home with two young children, Kari wrote her first novel and hasn’t stopped. She and her husband happily live in rural Corrales with their horses, dogs, and cats.
Page One Books is located at 5850 Eubank Blvd NE, Suite B-41, in Albuquerque's Mountain Run Shopping Center (southeast corner of Eubank and Juan Tabo). The Bovee event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 294-2026 or visit www.page1book.com.
