Good story about Amanda and Rick how things all worked out. The story was suspenseful, thrilling, exciting, and romantic. Miss Lockwood had her work cut out for her being the sheriff and all. It was exciting to read about the women backing the newly elected sheriff.

Two-Time Texas Left at the Altar (Book1) A Match Made in Texas (Book2) How the West was Wed (Book 3) My Thoughts In the 1800’s of Two-Time Texas it was still very much a man’s world. Women were however finally starting to join together and implement changes that would allow them more of the privileges the male population took for granted as their due. Owning or running a business, voting, having a voice in town planning or making decisions that would affect females all over the state. Amanda Lockwood is one of those forward thinking women, she has from childhood fought for the right to stand on her own two feet when it comes to how her life should be lived. This did not include marriage, children and a white picket fence. Things that other women her age embraced fervently and with great pride. The fact that she won the bid for sheriff was as much a surprise to Amanda as it was to Mayor and Town Council of Two-Time. The execution of the job duties themselves were more taxing than she expected as well However in true Amanda fashion she does not give up and in fact finds she has the backing of every woman in town, creating the first female posse to go along with the first female sheriff. Outlaw Rick Barrett is her first hurdle, saving him from a necktie party was only the first step in keeping the man alive. Proving his innocence however is another matter altogether. Trouble seems to plague Miss Amanda Lockwood from an early age. Trouble she mostly brings upon herself with her unladylike conduct and firm belief that females deserve more than marriage, children and keeping house. All reputable aspirations but not appealing for Amanda. At least she has not seen the appeal until lately. This was a different type of Western Romance and in a lot of ways it reminded me of one of my favorite James Garner movies Support Your Local Sheriff. Not sure how to explain that other than saying like those movie characters the book characters have the ability to inspire the readers loyalty and root for them to prevail in their efforts to find justice.
