The third short story in the Loving Blue in Red States series, Jackson Hole Wyoming is now out. ‘Jackson Hole’ is a fictional account of two over 40 leads who aren’t looking for love at all. Both women are just trying to pass the time doing the same thing: playing roles in Jackson Hole’s long-running wild west Shootout show that plays in the streets of downtown Jackson (Hole), Wyoming six nights a week, all summer long, for the throngs of visitors that converge on the otherwise small town from the Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.
For a limited time, it is exclusive to Amazon and free via Kindle Unlimited.
The blurb for Jackson Hole:
Liz Ventura is a semi-retired saddle and tack shop owner who just wants to get out of the house, out among people. Friends in community theater convince her to try out for a part in the summer long Jackson Hole Shootout show and she makes the cut. She was even willing to play understudy to the show’s female lead. After all, she thought, Trudy had been playing the role forever and relished it. What could possibly go wrong?
Jessica ‘Jess’ Davenport is a six-year veteran of the show. It’s been the only steady thing in her life for most of those years as she struggled with loss and the effects of addiction. She’s incensed when she finds out the director just handed Trudy’s role to a newcomer to the show; incensed that she wasn’t even considered. When she confronts Liz, sparks fly.
Both women are living in the past. Can a Shootout show help them find a future together?
Jackson Hole Wyoming is the third short story in the Loving Blue in Red States series by Anne Hagan. It was preceded by, Sweetwater Texas and Birmingham Alabama. Look for other short stories and novellas to come out in this series in the future.
