About the book:
Welcome to Two-Time Texas:
Where tempers burn hot
Love runs deep
And a single woman can change the course of history:
There’s a new sheriff in town:
Amanda Lockwood gets more than she bargained for when she’s elected Two-Time Texas’s first female sheriff. Anxious to prove herself, she sets out to stop crime in its tracks—taking down wanted man Rick Barrett in the process. But there’s something special about the charming outlaw. Common sense says he must be guilty…but her heart keeps telling her otherwise.
So what’s a sheriff to do? Gather an all-female posse and ride to save the day.
Things sure don’t look good for Rick. If he doesn’t convince the pretty sheriff to let him go, he’ll soon be pushing up daisies. But his plan to woo her to his side backfires when he’s the one who falls head over heels. Now he must choose between freedom or saving the woman he loves…and the clock is ticking.
Who knew A Match Made in Texas could be such sweet, clean, madcap fun?
My review (5-stars)
I’m loving the Two-Time Texas series by Margaret Brownley. The stories are fast paced and the characters are laugh loud funny. I was fascinated with Amanda in the first book and simply adore her in this one. As a suffragist she’s fair-minded and not a shrinking violet.
When she runs for sheriff it’s rather comical since women had no voting rights at all and she’s the lone female running, so it’s not like she has a chance of winning, right? She’s just as shocked as everyone in town when she finds out she’s the new sheriff. She needs a deputy, a posse and learning to shoot a gun is a top priority, too.
Rick is her first and only prisoner,so she has quite a bit of time to investigate his case. She has a young, inexperienced deputy who quotes his old grandfather constantly, along with her all female posse to help. What could possibly go wrong? As it turns out, quite a lot.. Amanda soon realizes the enormity of her situation especially as her fondness for Rick grows.
Rick was so easy to like. He’s brave, handsome and witty. That’s the whole package as far as I’m concerned.
This is one that can be read as a stand-alone, but I suggest you read them in order to fully appreciate the wonderful residents of Two-Time Texas.
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley and have given my honest opinion.
