The Sheriffs of Savage Wells by Sarah M. Eden, Blog Tour
He's the most fearsome sheriff in the West. A force to be reckoned with. The stuff of legend.
So is she. . . . May the best sheriff win.
Paisley Bell knows the eccentric people of Savage Wells. From the absentminded shopkeeper who always thinks she's been robbed to the young man who has returned shell-shocked from the war, Paisley has compassion for them all. When the sheriff up and leaves town, Paisley steps up and assumes the responsibility, partly because she loves the work, but also because she needs the income to take care of her sick father. So when the town council decides that the position of sheriff should really go to a man, Paisley finds herself fighting to prove that she's the perfect candidate for the job, even though she wears a skirt.
Cade O'Brien is heartily sick of shooting people. In his many years as a lawman, Cade has seen his share of blood and violence. So when he answers an advertisement for a sheriff job in the sleepy town of Savage Wells, he believes he's found the peace and quiet he's always desired. But when he discovers that his biggest competition for the job is a woman, he begins to question his decisions.
Tension between the two begins to sizzle when both Cade and Paisley realize the attraction they have for each other, but when Paisley's former beau shows up in town, along with a band of bank robbers, the blossoming relationship between the two sheriffs is tested. They will have to work together to thwart the bank robbers and keep the town safe.
I really wasn't sure what I would think of this western novel, it is such a different genre than what I am used to from Eden. But I should have known that Eden would work her writing magic and have me so caught up in the story of Paisley and Cade that I couldn't put it down! Paisley was one original character! A woman sheriff in a small western town! Wearing a dress and a gun! I could see it all in my mind and I loved the image! Then enters Cade into the picture! The well-known gun-slinging sheriff who always catches the criminals. Who would win the badge and title of the sheriff of Savage Wells?
The competition that ensued was so fun to watch unfold! I loved getting to know each candidate for sheriff and each and every member of the town. I felt like I knew the town and the people of Savage Wells by the time I was done reading the book. They had become dear friends that I didn't want to leave! Cade and Paisley were a dynamic duo in my mind! There were always sparks, verbal sparring and surprises with those two around! A wonderfully written story, I highly recommend The Sheriffs of Savage Wells!
