Bellhouse’s Third in Fire Drifter Series Released
Local attorney and author Carol Bellhouse announced the release of her latest book, Fire Drifter 3: The Vessel. The third in the Fire Drifter series, follows the first: Meteor Shower and the second: Trails.
And this Leadville girl always has her hometown in mind when she picks up her pen, evident right from the start. Chapter One opens with “Leadville recedes in the rearview mirror. The storm clouds over Mt. Elbert are the color of steel. By the time I hit the old schoolhouse and the Malta Curve, I have the Camaro at ninety. I take the corner on the inside, straightening the arc. Led Zeppelin II roars from the eight-track player.”
And the reviews are in, including “The third book captures us just as surely as the first two. With top-notch writing, Carol weaves her magic yet again.”
