Marshal in Petticoats | [Paty Jager]

Marshal in Petticoats

When a down-on-its-luck mining town makes Darcy Duncan marshal after she shoots a bank robber, she puts every effort into helping the town. Her accident-prone nature, however, makes the task difficult as well as throws her into the arms of an unsuspecting drifter. All Gil Halsey wants is to bring back the boss's son and secure the foreman job on a large cattle ranch. He's been running from his past and has finally found a place to settle. That is until a scrawny, greenhorn marshal turns out to be an enticing, young woman who lures him from his path.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend this audiobook. It's a book that as you listen grows on you and manages to pull you into the story as you listen.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was the hero. He was a character that had to learn to forgive himself to be able to be completely happy, and had to learn to change the direction of his life to end up being happy.


    What about Holly Adams’s performance did you like?

    I loved her acting. Her voices matches the time and how they would sound during those times. And must admit her male hero voice sound really nice.


    If you could rename Marshal in Petticoats, what would you call it?

    I would not rename this book, I think the title matches the book perfectly.


    Any additional comments?

    This audio book is something that comes and surprises you with comedy that pops up as you go. Also pulls at you, because if things that occur through the book.

    "Fun western romance!"
    What made the experience of listening to Marshal in Petticoats the most enjoyable?

    The narrator has a very engaging voice, and really brings the characters and the story to life. She injects just the right amount of humor and sarcasm into her narration that made me smile and laugh at times.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This was a fun, fast-paced western romance. The characters are well fleshed out and their dialogue true to the era and genre. It was fun to hear a story about an unlikely woman marshall and her escapades, and the man who aids her, and the sometimes funny situations they get tangled up in to figure out the bad guy's motives. Along the way, of course, they fall in love.


    Have you listened to any of Holly Adams’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first time listening to Holly Adams. I thought she did an excellent job with the heroine's voice, as well as most of the male voices. My one objection was her portrayal of the hero. The voice she used for him just didn't quite work for me - seemed like he was constantly talking in a low whisper. However, I tried to ignore that, and simply sit back and enjoyed the story. The rest of her narration was fun to listen to.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listen to audiobooks at work, so I can't listen to one in a single sitting, but I sure would have listened to this book all the way through. There are some audiobooks I have to stop and come back to for various reasons. This one wasn't one of those.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, this was a great story, great writing that was true to the era, and really engaging narration. There are some very hot and steamy sex scenes in this book, which developed naturally during the hero and heroine's relationship. There was one particular sex scene I felt could have been left out, but again, nothing that I would knock the overall story for.
    I hope there are more audiobooks forthcoming in this series.
