Much Ado About Marshalls

Written by Jacquie Rogers

Genre: Romance, Western

Book Synopsis

Daisy Gardner wants to be a detective just like dime novel heroine Honey Beaulieu. To her delight, her sister shot a bank robber and he got away, so now she even has a crime to solve. But her parents insist she marry a man whose farm is miles from town. She can't solve crimes stuck out there. What better solution than to marry the new marshal!

Rancher Cole Richards saves his friend from robbing a bank, but is shot for his efforts, and now is a wanted man. His friend takes him to Oreana to see the doc, where Cole's mistaken for the new marshal. Now he faces a dilemma few men have to face--tell the truth and hang, or live a lie and end up married. Either way could cost him his freedom.".

Debbie's Review

This is a story about a botched bank robbery on his part and mis-identification on her part. Cole is shot while trying to stop his friend from robbing a bank. When Daisy meets Cole for the first time, she mistakes him for the Marshall that she has just hired sight unseen, because she was informed that the Marshall had been shot.

This book made me laugh out loud a lot, not only because of the dialogue but because of the characterization. Daisy is naive and this puts her in situations that made me laugh. Cole's friend who tried to rob the bank is loyal but not the smartest guy in town. His attempts to help get him into trouble which is hilarious.

Another part of the book that is funny is the story line. There are a lot of funny twists and turns which involve all the townspeople. I laughed in every chapter, and in practically every scene. This book made me feel good, except for one thing. I personally do not need a lot of detail in a sex scene. This book has at least one scene that I felt was necessary but had too much detail.

If you like to close a book with a smile on your face, this is the book for you. I have heard that there is another book in this series and I would love to read it too.
