Why This Must Be Read: A bit ago, I got on a huge Gunsmoke, Kitty/Matt kick. This was definitely one of the stand-outs from the genre. It's inventive and solidly written, using the show's canon as a backdrop for a modern-day soul-mate type story that does a great job of harking back to Matt and Kitty, while still giving Alex and Kat their own voices. It's also got a pretty solid procedural case and mystery going on, and I'm excited and curious to see where the author is going to take the characters, old and new. It's also done in an interesting, contrasted POV style, where you get both Kat and Alex's thoughts, which I'm finding really brings depth to the story. All in all, it's a great read.
