    One thought on “Tempest in the White City”

    1. What a great read. I was a little surprised at how short it was though. I was expecting 10-15 chapters or so, but it was still wonderful and I'm glad I bought it.After reading this I'm very excited to read It Happened at the Fair! I can't wait to find out more about Hunter and Billy!

    2. No new info if you've read the books this "prequels". Don't know why this cost a dollar if it is just a preview for the books.

    3. I have no problem with the writing. I enjoyed it and laughed heartily in a few spots. But this can hardly be called a prelude. It's barely even one chapter's worth of writing. The book info says 46 pages but don't be fooled, it's half that. The rest is an excerpt from "It happened at the fair". Why did the author do this? I agree with a previous reviewer who suggested that this should have been offered for free, and then we would have gladly paid for the full book when it came out. With this bei [...]

    4. This story was extremely short and ended very abruptly for my tastes, and from the excerpt in this book, it looks like the focus shifts for the next book. I did get invested in these characters and really wanted to know more about them. Billy Jack, our heroine, has a story to tell, I think, and I'm really interested in reading it! I'm looking forward to the next book to see if their story continues.

    5. A very short digital story set at the Chicago's World Fair Woman's Pavilion. It features Hunter Scott a Texas ranger very upset over having to do guard duty at the Woman's Pavilion. It also features Dr.Billy Jack - a woman doctor - who treats Hunter. It was cute. Can't wait to read It Happened at the Fair.

    6. It is a humorous, easy read, great for when you want something to read but do not have a lot of time. I can't wait for the full novel with these characters.

    7. Very funny story, I laughed out loud a few times. I wouldn't have minded reading a whole book about about these two characters!

    8. When Texas Ranger Hunter Scott was assigned to work the Chicago World's Fair, he anticipated working an exhibit that was suited to his rough-and-tumble tastes. Instead he's assigned to the Women's Building, where every corner was created, designed, filled, and run by women. When his nagging stomach pains blossom into an ailment that leaves him as helpless as a babe, he finds his welfare dependent on the one thing he fears most -- a doctor, and a female one to boot. Dr. Billy Jack Tate thought he [...]

When he is overcome with debilitating abdominal pain, Hunter stumbles to the Fair’s infirmary on [...]

    10. Hilariously uncomfortable conflict at the World's Fair women's building between a female doctor, Billy Jack Tate, and old-fashioned security guard, Hunter Scott. I was thinking this was a novella, but it is an eShort. Is told from the hero's point of view and ends with the promise of a budding relationship. It serves its purpose in that it makes me want to read "It Happened at the Fair." Discovering facts about security guards and other historical aspects surrounding the Chicago World's Fair was [...]

    11. FascinatingI really enjoyed "It Happened at the Fair", and was fascinated by the historical detail of the fair. By the time I finished the book I felt as though I'd been there. When I looked up Deanne Gist I was delighted to find she'd written two more books on the World's Fair theme. This one is a delightful novella about two people that work at the faire doctor and a guard. The guard takes ill and is horrified to find himself in the hands of a female doctor. His illness takes a comical turn an [...]

    12. This had a lot of promise to introduce the upcoming book It Happened At the Fair. However, these character had very little to do with the main book. He barely shows up, and she is merely talked about. But Hunter's ailment--the main focus of the story--was a bit into the realm of "TMI." I don't want to give it away, but it wasn't an issue I felt the need to focus on. The writing, details, and time period were all good and lived up to the promise in the full novel, which I would recommend much mor [...]

    13. I'm confused with the name of this book, as the first of the 2 book series had a different name when I read it. Perhaps it was changed. At any rate, the book was excellent and the second book was even better. I really appreciate that the author includes actual pictures of the World's Fair in her books. It really puts the reader in the center of the book.

    14. OH MY, This novella really surprised me in a good way. My husband and I were traveling to Texas and I read while he drives. I have never laughed so hard reading a book, this book will keep you in stitches from beginning to end. My husband just gave me this look wondering what was causing my outburst of laughter.

    15. Loved it! Short but Sweet! Wonderful details and delightful characters. This prelude left me CRAVING for more about these characters in "It Happened at the Fair"ever I was to be disappointed (these characters were not directly mentioned). Hopefully Deeanne will write a full length novel including these characters in a sequal ;)

    16. This is a very short read that serves to introduce an upcoming book. I thoroughly enjoyed the interaction between the main characters: a macho 1893 Chicago World’s Fair guard & (horrors!)a female doctor. The events of his medical "emergency" & her diagnosis & treatment left me laughing out loud more than once! I have already preordered It Happened at the Fair.

    17. I really liked this book, but it's very short, and the story doesn't continue/finish in the next one. The setting is in the World Fair, but it has other characters, and only has a passing comment about these characters.

    18. A short story prelude to It Happened at the Fair. Tempest in the White City had me anxiously scrolling for the next page, and when I didn't find that, counting down the days until It Happened at the Fair's release.

    19. This is not a novel, nor is it a short story or novella. It is merely a chapter presented as a teaser to a book she apparently intends to write. Read all the details before you get suckered into buying this as I was. It's about a 10-minute read.

    20. This was really just a rehash of the beginning of It Happened at the Fair. I already read that one and was hoping for more insights and a longer parallel story.

    21. It's kind a retelling of how Hunter and Billy from"Fair Play" met but from Hunter's point of view. Short, easy read with a little extra incite.

    22. Really cute characters and a fun plot, but WAY too short! Really only about 20 pages, and just when you were enjoying the banter between Billy and Hunter, the story ends.

    23. This was an unusual and fun short story. It's too bad we only get a little glimpse of these two in It Happened at the Fair. I'd love to read a whole novel about them.

    24. After reading the second book in the series called Fair Play, I remembered this prequel. This story actually takes place in the second book. This is a good series!
