  • “Deborah Swenson spun a fascinating read in Till My Last Breath.”“Deborah Swenson spun a fascinating read in Till My Last Breath.”Carmen Peone, Author of True to Heart Trilogy

    “Deborah Swenson spun a fascinating read in Till My Last Breath. This western romantic suspense is filled with deception and revenge. The characters are lively and unique, the setting perfect for a western, and the action is real, as real as the love woven through the pages.”

  • “Time Travel Meets the Western Frontier”“Time Travel Meets the Western Frontier”Sue Ready with Ever Ready Book Reviews

    “Till My Last Breath” is a historical western genre. It employs a time travel element which sets it apart from the usual western themed novels. It's a compelling story that keeps the reader engaged right down to the last page. It reads at a breathtaking pace and I read it in 48 hours. It was hard to stop.”

  • “A wonderful addition to my western library.”“A wonderful addition to my western library.”Michael R. Ritt, Author of The Sons of Philo Gaines

    “Deborah is an emerging western author, and Till My Last Breath is her first novel. But you wouldn't know it to read it. Deborah writes with the skill of someone who has been wordsmithing for many years.  There is enough action and gritty Western machismo to keep any guy interested. The two villains in the book will have you cringing in fear and wrinkling your nose in disgust, and you will become such fans of Emily and Caleb that you, like me, will want to see more of them.”

  • “Time shifting western romance and revenge story.”“Time shifting western romance and revenge story.”Thomas D. Clagett, Author of Line of Glory

    “A first-time novelist, Swenson does a terrific job of developing multiple characters but takes a bold and risky step and allowing each of them to speak in the first person. And it works incredibly well. Swenson keeps the plot tight, the bullets flying, and the unexpected coming.”

    “Over the course of this novel, Swensen presents a story that not only flows through different eras with ease but also through different genres with equal facility. The narrative is solidly paced and displays the author's gift for salient detail, and the chronology moves forward and backward, as necessary, to provide readers with the full story without ever sacrificing clarity along the way.”

  • “Transported Back”“Transported Back”J.B.

    “Swenson has created two very likable characters. What I liked the most is the author’s very detailed descriptions of place. I could picture every wooden plank, every meal, every scent (prickly pear poultice, anyone?) and every sound of nineteenth-century Yuma, Arizona.”

  • “Mixed Genres and Good Characters Make an Enjoyable Book.”“Mixed Genres and Good Characters Make an Enjoyable Book.”Charles Johnson

    “Author Deborah Swenson takes on a fun idea; what if you mix science fiction (time travel and life after death), stories of the Old West, a portion of classical romance novels, and throw in a good cast of characters? . . . then Till My Last Breath is for you. . . expect lots of action and a few twists that come about because of the creative genre-blending and a chance to meet some interesting characters.”
