A Little Sin
By Sionnach Wintergreen
Narrated by Anton Rush
Length: 4 hrs and 18 mins
Sheriff Avery O’Rourke has tried to obey his strict Christian faith and lead a “normal” life. In 1923 in a rural East Texas town, “normal” means heterosexual. A cholera outbreak has made Avery a young widower, so he is married to his job. When a murder investigation forces him to confront his truth, will he finally be able to accept being gay?
Veterinarian Garland Sands has returned from Europe to take over his father’s practice. Struggling with shellshock (PTSD) and heartbroken by the suicide of his French lover, he resigns himself to a quiet, solitary life as a country vet. But the murder of the town doctor brings the sheriff to Garland’s doorstep looking for help with the investigation. Seeing Avery awakens dormant feelings. Can he love a man who hates what he is?
This isn’t the lavish 1920s of The Great Gatsby. This is the flip side of that coin—rural East Texas. No electricity. No indoor plumbing. No flappers. In 1923, the timber barons have left and racism, homophobia, and sexism thrive.
A Little Sin is a realistic mystery with unlikely heroes and a timeless romance between lovers caught in a world where their love is forbidden. This book contains steamy sex scenes and is intended for adults only.

Raw, and real, with a murder mystery and true love. This is a great read!
Real, sweet, passionate and true, with a murder mystery thrown in. This was a unique take on Western Historical Fiction and I really enjoyed it! I’m not usually a fan of historical romances but this one hooked me! I love a murder mystery and found the Timberland Ripper fascinating.
I loved the sparks and connection between Avery and Garland. These two are something special, I loved their story! So much happens throughout this story and the connection and passion between Avery and Garland only grows. I really enjoyed how well Sionnach seem to stay, true to the time and was cautious and respectful of the characters even during a time when racism was at it’s worst. This truly is a great and real historical read!!
