The main characters in Cougar Woman attracted me at once: an aging woman alone and her pet. The setting sealed the deal: a cabin in the woods. The conflict intrigued me: galloping horses, a lone man being chased, and the danger that can result from such a mix, for we know these elements will soon converge. Details appealing to all the senses bring to life the location as if I'm watching a film: the cold air, moonlight, and the big cat sharpening its claws on the cabin floorboards. Historical details add just the right flavor. I love reading about spunky women, and Peggy Johnson's women fill that bill admirably. Her characters are a balance of memories and actions, making them believable and endearing. It's unusual for such a short story to have more than one point of view, but Johnson carries it off successfully. Having the posse show up at the door rachets up the tension, and we anticipate what will happen when Katy returns--with her cougar. Unexpected reversals keep the reader wondering until the last page.
