Publisher's Summary

He's the most fearsome sheriff in the West - a force to be reckoned with, the stuff of legend. But 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 as 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.

Meh, it’s okay

This is nothing compared to her Jonquil Brothers series or even For Elise. The narrator put in kind of a lackluster performance. No feels at all.

This is a terrific sweet Western romance

Paisley‘a father’s mindfulness was getting worse. From the once brilliant banker, he was unaware most days of present reality.
Paisley was not qualified for many jobs, but she felt proud of her accomplishments as serving as Sheriff’s Deputy - although self- appointed and unpaid. Now she added her name to the list of three others in application for the new Sheriff.
The Town Council decided to hold a 14-day trial before choosing one.
Cade was a notorious lawman. He was a modern legend. Only a few in this tiny community knew of him. This was a perfect place for a man tired of killing and chasing down outlaws to settle down in. The pay was surprisingly good.
For Paisley, this job was a matter of survival.
Toward the end of the trial period, the town’s situation took a drastic turn, it was past the hiring debate and only one was truly qualified.
This bittersweet romance is poignant but delightful. The entertaining banter between Case and Paisley is humorous and entertaining. The quirky friendships are amusing, and the disheartening struggles sad.
This is a clean, wholesome western romance with at. “ attitude “ the reader will surely be captivated by.
One will enjoy and feel a part of this unusual community and the experiences within.
The narration by Kirsten Potter was delivered brilliantly.

Fun and Flirty PG13

Fun, PG13 and a flirty romance with characters that stay true to their personality. Good plot.

Sick of shooting people as a lawman in the Wild West cities, Cade answers an advertisement for a sheriff in the peaceful town of Savage Wells.

Paisley fights to prove she can continue to do the job she’s been do as a self appointed deputy, even though she’s a woman.

I’m looking forward to more Eden books.

it wasn't the greatest book I've read

the story nice and clean. it had a really good plot but i didnt like the way it ended and the main character was constantly a debbie doubter which was annoying. the narrator wasnt my favorite either, she read it a bit to slow for my taste and didnt use inflection or emotional response when it was needed.

Very disappointing sophormic romance

I have listened to other books by this author and although disappointed by the lack of a faith based message, I still saw some inspirational message. This book, however, this dialogue disappointed. The dialogue sounded like teenagers. "Do you really like me?" Give me a break!!! The story could have been improved by using more mature dialogue.

Empty Story .. Suitable For Wasting Time

I expected something cute and empty and that's exactly what I got .. and then some.
the book talks about Paisley and Cade, both are competing to be the Sheriff of Savage Wells.. hence the name of the book, through out the book we see how their relationship progress and what they will accomplish together when they become a team .. I liked the town with it's funny people, but nothing was really happening so it was a nice read I guess .. suitable for my mood where I don't want any complicated story

The narration was really good and engaging, I liked it .. but I wouldn't recommend it for a good romance

Darling Unconventional Western Romance!

Savage Wells, Wyoming needs a new sheriff and the town decides to advertise for the position all over the Wild West. Gun-slinging lawmen come to throw in their hats for the position, but no one expects Miss Paisley Bell to also throw in her bonnet. Sparks fly as the contestants try to outdo each other for the badge, but not all of those sparks come from guns.
Eden paints the picture of the frontier town of Savage Wells and it’s townspeople living in the Wild West. She weaves a slow and steady thread of romance into the fight for the sheriff and adds in some Old West gunfights just to keep readers on their toes!

Wild West Fun

Paisley Bell, hearing a name like that just spells trouble. She's not about to allow anyone to tell her she can't do ... whatever she undertakes. Enter Cade O'Brien. Both are vying for the new sheriff's position in town, along with 2 others. While Paisley has been filling in for a bit since the old sheriff decided sheriffin' wasn't for him, she still has to prove to the town she has what it takes to hold the position against rough varmints. Of course she sheriff's in a dress with her holster on her hip, so it is hard to take her serious. Cade is handsome and flirty and a marshal in his own right, therefore he is going to be a problem. The dialogue is fun and witty and paints a great picture so it is easy to follow the story and have a giggle here and there. Definitely worth the listen.
