First we run into Bonnie and Dickie Calhan spying? on the new sheriff. Dickie is determined to tell the sheriff about the bank robbers. [grin, what an exchange between brother, 8 and sister 11].

Molly, 31, has been a widow for four years. And has shown no interest in remarrying. She has a store to run and children to raise. But she doesn't see any reason to prejudge a man because of his scandalous past.

The ladies gathered in Calhan's General Store to discuss the new sheriff and why he was a divorced man.
We meet Coreyanne Campbell, the widow Thelma Thompson, Emmy Lou Trainer and 19 year old Louisa Merton [who turns out to be surprise].
These are some of the members of the Elk City Ladies Society.

DeWitt Gavin 33, gains the attention of the men of Elk City when he floors Crazy Mike, a biggg miner who gets drunk a few times a year because his gal left him.
Witt, himself, is described as a mountain of a man. And he sure likes candy. Molly floors him by giving him a handful of chocolate creams.

Then the candy became his excuse to see Molly although he couldn't allow any interest to grow. His ex did a number on him.

Molly decided to take matters into her own hands and began it with a kiss. Oh Boy! It keeps getting better.
There is the subtle suggestion of the banker putting the move on Molly and DeWitt already wants to rearrange his features.

Sheriff Dewitt Gavin was quite an assortment of surprises to merchant Molly Calhan. Saddled with a scandalous past and giant sized sweet tooth,he also had a truly giving heart.Now if only she could convince him to give his heart to her. Witt Gavin had enought to handle , being the new lawman in a town of rife with gossip and kids convinced bank robbers were hiding in every alley.his one daily treat was to visit Molly Calhan's Candy counter. But was it the sugar that drew him or the spicy merchant.
