Review for Color of Vengeance by Kim Iverson Headlee
Kim Iverson Headlee's "Color of Vengeance" is a standalone historical short story. It's a tale of revenge. It's a very quick read, but it's chock full of wonderfully detailed descriptions. I love Headlee's writing style! I've read her historical romances before and I've come to appreciate her writing talent.
