This is the first book, about the oldest of the Rawlings siblings. This one has the most tension of the four books. Turner is good at suspense stories.
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)
This is a "good" book. I read the second book called "Cooper" first and it set the tone for this series. So, while I truly liked "Gable" it was not as strong a story, in my opinion, as the next two in the series (Cooper and Flynn). The Rawlings family is so real. Gable is a great BIG BROTHER to his siblings.

Gable Rawlings had money problems and a ranch coverted by every rich vulture in New Mexico, but he was just as worried about his sister. He'd busted his back to properly raise his orphaned siblings, and he had to stop Josey O'Brain from filling his sister's head with foolish talk about women's rights. And Gable had already figured out the easiest and most enjoyable way of getting Josey to stop talking....
