The synopsis gives a good a description of the book. It is another tense story.
As an interesting side point Susannah is an author - she writes "the Ace McKenzie books" which are the favorite books of bookworm Maddy Lawrence - heroine of "Maddy Lawrence's Big Adventure" (SIM #709).
This book is fun with adventure, a bit of a mystery/who-done-it, and of course romance. All of the books in this series can be described this way. Some, if not all of them, even have gunfights! Wild West indeed!
The order for the Wild West books is:
Gable's Lady (SIM #523)
Cooper (SIM #553)
Flynn (SIM #572)
Kat (SIM #590)
In addition there are two books that are set in the same town with some of the secondary characters as main ones.
The Sheriff in the Wild West series is Riley Whitaker. His story is "Who's the Boss?" (SIM #649). A friend of Riley's is Dillon Cassidy, DEA agent. A reporter in town is Sydney O'Keefe. Their story is told in "The Loner" (SIM #673)
Took too long for the feud between the two main characters to resolve itself. The story line was a good one. The plot exciting. But the main theme should have come out sooner because it led to frustration of the storyline for me. If you like western love stories, with a touch of mystery, this has all the elements of a good yarn. But, if you like the characters to show their true colors before the book is almost over, this will leave you feeling like something needs to be happening sooner. It made me nervous wondering when the point would be made and almost angry at the author for taking so long to make them understand where they stood and why.
Overall, it was a fun, fast read, didn't have to worry about trying to figure out the plot. It was pretty straight forward and had the usual turmoil between the two main characters so much like these types of books have.
