    Sam Bishop is a man running from his past When he reads an ad about spinsters looking for husbands he concocts a plan Marrying a wealthy woman is just what he needs to solve his problems but when he meets Prissy Gil the pretty woman uickly steals his heart and makes him want to be the good man she deserves He takes the job of sheriff and sets out to clean up Prissy’s town and prove his worth But then he comes face to face with an unscrupulous man from his past—a man who has a vendetta and will do anything necessary to accomplish his vile agenda Can Sam’s and Prissy’s relationship—one built on lies—survive the tribulations that are sure to come?I really liked this book It’s a story about a down on his luck man who meets a wonderful woman and although his initial plans are deceitful his growing affection for the heroine makes him want to be a better man Though Prissy is innocent she has a backbone and won’t be pushed around when things get difficult The Sheriff’s Sweetheart is a charming romance set in Texas just after the Civil War and is a book that historical romance readers are sure to enjoy

    The first time I picked up a Laurie Kingery book I knew she had something special and she became an automatic buy When the Brides of Simpson Creek hit the shelves I immediately fell in love with her unlikely heroines and out of the box heroes I had become so accustomed to Kingery’s heroines that I had doubts she’d pull off a somewhat normal heroineAm I glad I was wrong Prissy Gil’s uiet strength and faith drive Sam Bishop’s need for change by drawing him to her And Sam Bishop experiences God’s grace and mercy not only through the town’s preacher but also through an unlikely sourceKingery does an excellent job of drawing the reader in and keeper the reader engaged Without giving away any of the story line let me just say that The Sheriff’s Sweetheart is a definite keeper

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish The characters are very real and believable The hero starts out on rough ground but redeems himself and is very likable from start to finish The author gives her readers insight on how the main characters grow as they face trials and fall in love There's humor mystery and romance all tied togetherI read this book knowing that it was the third in a series that I had not started I was not lost as the book stands well alone But after finishing it I knew I had to buy books one and two The story uality and writers ability to pull the reader in makes me want to read

    It took me a while to get into this one for some reason but it was still a good story Love the series as a whole I just found the characters in this one to not be so endearing as the other two books I don't know what it was But in the end I love how there was a twist on the mail ordered brides with this series and how independent spunky texas gals took it into their own hands to get males to town Love the way this series was told

    Cute story about a man who who wanted to be different and become a man of respect who was worthy of a good woman and life He had to go through some scrutiny and allow God to develop his new persona while trusting that he would not be rejected based on the past I enjoyed the easy read based on a verse in Joshua claiming whom we will serve Laurie is a good writer
