Just when I think Margaret Brownley’s books can’t get any better, A Match Made in Texas rides in on a jaw-breakin’ wagon stirring up the town of Two-Time and takes this reader on a journey of guffawing, swooning, and blubbering!

Suffragist and self-declared forever-spinster Amanda Lockwood, has one goal. To accomplish something positive and meaningful for women’s rights to report at the next Suffragist meeting. Towards that end, Amanda runs for the position of Two-Time’s sheriff, never expecting

She tosses him jail for the murder though and now he must wait for justice. However, did he really do it? Amanda has no idea. Rick's plan? Woo the lady sheriff and maybe she'll let him go so he

I'm loving the Two-Time Texas series by Margaret Brownley. The stories are fast paced and the characters are laugh out loud funny. I was fascinated with Amanda in the first book and simply adore her in this one. As a suffragist she's fair minded and not a shrinking violet.

When she runs for sheriff it's rather comical since women had no voting rights at all and she's the lone female running, so it's not like she has a chance of winning, right? She's just as shocked as everyone in town when she

Did Not Finish at 70%

I want to start off by saying that this is a case of me personally not caring for the story but someone else could very well love it. That being said, the main reason that I didn't care for this story was that the mental maturity level was more fitting for an 8-10 year old instead of an adult. Constantly the characters in the story would do something that I'm sure was meant to be funny and yet it only came off

In the 1880s, Two-Time Texas had long known that Amanda Lockwood, a young suffragette, didn’t mind doing the unexpected but never expected she would decide to run for sheriff and accidentally become the first woman sheriff. The men are in an uproar because she won’t resign and many of their wives join her as members of the Red Feather Posse. The town will never be the same.
One of her first acts as sheriff is investigating a murder and she saves the suspect from a lynching mob. Throw an

Oh my, Margaret does it again!

Oh my goodness, I know better than to start a book of Margaret Brownley’s in the evening. Once you’ve read the first word, she weaves you into the page-turning web as only she can. Every single book not only pulls you further into the story line, but also provides you with awesome historical facts. Thank you Margaret :-)

This is one of Margaret Brownley's best yet! It has everything: romance, history, mystery, humor, action, great characters, and heart! A woman fights for women's rights, becomes the sheriff, then fights for the innocence of her prisoner. I rate it at least a 6 out of 5!

A tad disappointing in that it didn't QUITE measure up to LEFT AT THE ALTAR - but again set in TWO-TIME TX with spunky heroine and a great hero!

One of my fave time periods - set in 1882 - in a quaint town!

Brownley's humor is alive and well here!
Good romance
Neat premise

This was an interesting western story. It's interesting how times have changed,(thank goodness). Women were so limited in what they should/could do and what they could wear, etc. There was some drama, wondering how poor Rick would turn out, their justice system left a lot to believe in.

Great!!!. Wonderful. This book is even better that the first one. I great balance between, God, drama, history, loud out loud situations, family and love. A great choice!
