Book Review: Shotgun Bride



Shotgun Bride by Linda Lael Miller

This is the second in the McKettrick trilogy (the first being High Country Bride, which I recently read), the western adventure/romance-y series.

Once again, I enjoyed the action, setting, characters and conflict of this title. This is not, as Nancy Pearl famously said, simply a "bodice ripper/throbbing manhood" book, but is much more about conflict and resolution, and the challenges of living in the west in the 1880s. There are outlaws, a wedding, a funeral and a new town marshal, as well as the woman hiding as a nun...

I plan to pick up the third soon! Recommended, particularly if you've never tried the western romance genre. :-)
