The Chili Queen is an unforgettable, humorous, and extremely readable story of love, friendship and loyalty. With it’s many twists and turns the story pulls you along and you find yourself slowing putting the pieces of the puzzle together, but always remember, re-inventing yourself was an easy thing to do in the old west.
