Mona Knight – Second Chance

Second Chance is the second installment in The Fortune Saga series and picks up where the first book, Banjo Flats, leaves off. Fortune returns home to Banjo Flats, South Dakota, for it was here she earned her reputation as a shoot first, ask questions later kind of gunfighter and she has a score to settle. But life gets complicated when she rescues a pair of young brothers on the road to Deadwood. A dark memory from her past haunts her as she picks up the trail of a lost gold shipment, hoping to vindicate the man who saved her life, and she finally comes face to face with her nemesis, Mose Horn.

Mona Knight is a novelist, short story writer, and journalist. Her debut novel, Banjo Flats, was published by Boularderie Island Press in the fall of 2017. Second Chance, the next instalment in the Fortune Saga series, will be released in mid-August of 2019.
One of Knight’s short stories was a finalist in the Writers Federation of Nova Scotia’s annual writing competition and became the opening chapter for Banjo Flats, and was launched at the Cabot Trail Writer’s Festival in 2017.
