Westerns aren't my thing, but I had to choose one for the Reader's Advisory Group I attend at the library. This was a typical western. The characters were well drawn.

The sheriff is in love with her and has to find a way to save her. He strong arms a former friend into helping him, keep's Emily's loyal Indian ranch hand from running around looking for her, all ...more
Couldn't help but think of the Deputy Dawg cartoon or the Lone Ranger and Tonto the entire time I was reading this book. From the vernacular language (very tiresome after a while) to the stereotypical characters, this was straight out of 1960s TV land. The plot could easily have translated to a modern day thriller set anywhere else--good guys, bad guys, and secrets. Glad it was short and was a fast read.

Like reading a Liberal version of a conservative plot. Very good English, a good plot but horribly written. Will finish because I played for it. Would not recommend for anyone else to read.

The story stayed good, but the writing didn't' improve.
