I bought The Sheriff's Surrender by Susan Page Davis last month because I had heard a lot of good things about this book. I was not disappointed. :) I really enjoyed it and am so glad that this is the first book in a series. This is more of a mystery than anything else and it had me guessing who the bad guy was until the very good. In The Sheriff's Surrender we get to meet the people of Fergus, Idaho which is a mining town that has gone bust. The sheriff of Fergus has been murder and the ladies of the town don't feel safe so they ask Gert, the sister of the gunsmith in town, to teach them how to shoot. I really enjoyed seeing the town pull together and help solve this case. Well, I don't want to give anything away so I will just say if you like mysteries with a little bit of romance thrown in then I think you will like The Sheriff's Surrender. :) I know I did!
