When Gold Bug Gulch’s actor-gunslinger Mongo winds up shot for real, actress and part-time PI Ivy Meadows goes undercover as the ingénue in the tourist town’s melodrama. Unfortunately, she’s distracted by a pack of marauding Chihuahuas, a problematic love life, auditions for Annie Get Your Gun, and a personal mission: to show people the real Annie Oakley. What’s more, the no-good, yellow-bellied varmint who killed Mongo isn’t finished with the Gulch—or with Ivy. Will our heroine prove she can get a man with a gun—before the killer gets her?
“She’s sassy, she’s spunky, she likes rugelach, she sorts through feral chihuahuas and her own emotional quandaries to track down a murderous miscreant, and she’s happiest when she’s somebody else onstage. Ivy “Get Your Gun” Meadows is my kind of PI, and I predict a long run for her brand of witty wackiness. And wacky wittiness.”—Too Slim, bass player and joke slinger for the Grammy winning western music quartet Riders In The Sky
