[REVIEW] Hunger on the Chisholm Trail – by M. Ennenbach

HUNGER ON THE CHISHOLM TRAIL (Splatter Western, Book Two) By M. Ennenbach *3.5 out of 5* Though this title isn’t as strong as The Magpie Coffin, Hunger on the Chisholm Trail (book two in the Splatter Western series) is a fast and furious read that I thoroughly enjoyed.
