Publisher's Summary

Assisted by Luv Lass a young newlywed named Darcey Teller seeks to identify and to bring to justice her murdered husband's killers. Using Darcey's expertise as a photographer, the two unlikely heroines devise a machination they refer to as "The Kill Shot" as a means of accomplishing this deadly task. But first they must do battle with each other, with their own social differences and with Darcey's desire for vengeance over justice, before ultimately battling it out with the bad men. Just who is saving whom and from what? That is a question that you will ponder frequently as the story unfolds.

Good listen

What made the experience of listening to The Kill Shot the most enjoyable?

This book was a good book but I just didn't care for the narrator. This book really helped 350 miles pass by a lot faster. I do appreciate authors that spend their time writing books because it makes my job and life a lot easier and makes the miles move faster.

What other book might you compare The Kill Shot to and why?

Can't think of any

What three words best describe Craig Hensley’s voice?

I did not care for this narrator

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I liked all of the information on the old photography

Any additional comments?

This book was a good listen I'm a trucker and it didn't take me long to finish this novel once I got it started. I would listen to another novel by this author.

4.5/5 Stars Fun Western Story

Summary: Darcey Teller and Luv Lass team up to take on some heartless outlaws.

Additional Comments:
- The blurb pretty much outlines the whole story.
- It's not a perfect story, but there are enough twists and turns to keep things interesting.
- Darcey's emotions are a bit hard to peg down. She goes basically ballistic over the death of a total stranger. That's weird. The husband thing I get. That makes more sense because there's a much closer connection, but the other part doesn't click.
- The friendship that grows between Darcey and Luv Lass happens in fits and spurts, which is great.
- Pacing's strange. Some sections drag on and then others pass in a blink. But the key for me is the good guys/bad guys. There are clearcut lines here, and I wanted to root for the good guys.

Conclusion: A worthwhile Western to dive in to.

*I received a copy of the audiobook, and I freely chose to review it.
(I know the stars thing should work out to a 4 but the combined effect of the story telling was pretty good. I was entertained. And this site doesn't do half stars easily.)

A western with a strong main female character

This is a story of vengeance and justice. Two outlaws are responsible for the two people’s deaths. Darcey Teller will seek revenge, and be the strong woman in a men’s world.

I really enjoyed this western. Usually this kind of novels have male main characters but here we are up against a strong main female character helped by another outstanding woman. The characters were quite well portrayed and it was easy to connect to them.

I don’t want to give any spoilers away, but at first I had troubles to buy Darcey’s desire for revenge. It seemed a very unfortunate event but not close enough to her to justify her wrath. Things rapidly changed, and then things started to make more sense. I found some things a bit predictable, but that didn’t deter me from enjoying this book.

There is plenty of action, great dialogs, and numerous facts about old photography that would delight anyone with a little bit of curiosity about the subject. This and the fact that we have a strong woman getting her way in a men’s world are the most remarkable things in this book.

Craig Hensley’s narration was mostly correct but the women’s voices sounded all the same, and he practically just used two accents to differentiate characters. I found it a bit weird that a male narrator was chosen for a book where the two main characters are women. I think this audiobook would have worked a lot better with a female narrator.

I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook and would recommend it to anyone into westerns and strong female characters.

I received a copy of this book in audio format from the author in exchange for an honest review.

This is great!

This is a book to keep you on your seat. Darcey Teller one of the main characters she is amazingly smart lady. She is living the happy newly married dream. All that comes to an end when a couple of thief's end her husband's life. The shock of sitting by her husband's side during his last moments makes up Darcey's mind. She's going to find the killers and hopefully bring them to justice. Than the real adventure begins, Old wild west style.

I found myself stopping everything I was doing several times to listen to exactly what was going on in the story. The story line took me through it all Shock, sadness, that oh no feeling, and than the triumph came in the end. It was hard to believe the author could pack that much into a story line less the 6 hours long.
I would listen to this book again.

Narrated by: Craig Hensley did a great job. He really helped bring that old west style out in this story. He was great at the voice changes he did for each character.

I received this audio book free in exchange for an honest review.

The plot, plus short-ish chapters.

Darcy. Emotions constantly torn, intelligent, talented, probably beautiful.

What does Craig Hensley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

American accents, authencicity to the commentary.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was moved by some of the events and although the plot and characters were predictable at times, the ending was excellent.

Any additional comments?

An original and exciting story, a great cowboy story.

'Killer' second book from Tony Gavin

What made the experience of listening to The Kill Shot the most enjoyable?

Having read Tony Gavin's first book, Wooden Star, I was looking forward to reading this. His style has improved immensely from last time, the characters seemed a lot more real. I got completely lost in this book it was so enjoyable.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I know shouldn't like them, but both Rick and Jake get my vote. Nasty pieces of work from the start. They both come across as being totally ruthless and uncompromising and not having an emotional or remorseful bone in their body. I've always harboured a slight desire to play the really bad guy in a film and both these fit the bill.

Have you listened to any of Craig Hensley’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Not listened to any others yet but I intend to

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No, I just enjoyed the whole book from start to finish.

Any additional comments?

Second superb book from this up and coming author. The Kill Shot is a good step up from his last book, Wooden Star, much grittier and totally gripping. I look forward to (hopefully) more books from Mr Gavin. I'm not normally a fan of Western fiction, but hats off to him, I'm totally converted after reading this.

A Great Western

What did you like most about The Kill Shot?

This was the first western I've ever listened to and a break from my usual reading and listening material.

What did you like best about this story?

The story moved quickly and there's a great twist at the end of the book, I can't say more about the end without ruining it.

What about Craig Hensley’s performance did you like?

He had a good range of voices and he brought the characters personalities through.

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

The book was a bit to long to listen to in one sitting for me, but it did help make 2 gym sessions and a 10k run fun.

Any additional comments?

I'd definitely give another one of the authors books a listen to if anymore become available on Audible.
