The Sheriffs of Savage Wells by Sarah M. Eden

The Sheriffs of Savage Wells by Sarah M. Eden

Summary from Goodreads:
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.

My Review:
I will read ANYTHING by Sarah M. Eden. I absolutely love her books. When I saw that she had a new book coming out I was so happy. Yay! Another Sarah M. Eden book!

This book is yet another great book by Sarah M. Eden. She creates such great stories and her writing brings you right in to the story. I fall in love with the setting, the characters, the plot. 

The characters are incredible in this story. I love the back stories on both of the main characters. In addition, there are fantastic secondary characters. There are many quirky characters, but also some that I wish I could know more about. The doctor in particular is a character that I would love to have his own book. I really appreciate the story of the war veteran. His character added another layer of interest.

The romance in the book is just the right amount for me. There is attraction and tension. There is also respect for one another and their abilities as Sheriffs. That adds another dimension to the romance. They truly are equals, no damsels in distress here.

Which brings me to one of the most wonderful parts of this book. Paisley is awesome. Sarah M. Eden has created a strong woman who is completely capable. She is also kind and friendly. She has a heart. Being strong and capable does not make her a hard woman. I love reading about women with these qualities.

This is a great historical story with a great old west setting, conflict and competition, romance, and wonderful characters. I loved it!

Warnings: None
