I did enjoy listening to this book over all but found the story line completely predictable and other parts repeated so often it became redundant and still other parts a little far fetched or too contrived.

A Woman Marshal???

Marrying Miss Marshal is a story of Danna Carpenter and Chas O'Grady. Danna has became the town marshal of Calvin, after her husband's death (who is also a Marshal). She is trying to find who has killed her husband and at the same time, trying to earn the respect of the town people doing a man's job.

Chas came to Calvin to investigate cattle rustling. The last thing he expected was to be rescued twice by a female marshal and to be attracted to her. He is also hunted by the death of a woman, whom he failed to save.

Both characters are trying to deal with the demons of their past. Danna has grew up thinking that no one wants her but she still has faith in God. When she is in a difficult situation, she still trusted God that he is with her and will deliver her help. Chas has stopped believing in God. He has several issues to work out. Meeting Dana has helped him to realize several things in his past and what is important to him.

Marrying Miss Marshal is also about a woman doing a man's job during this period. Even though Danna is capable of doing the job of a marshal, she is faced with obstacles being hazed by the town council and ostracized by the women folks. The only thing that allow the town people to accept her is that her husband was the town marshal before his demise.

One of the other hypocrite of the town people is that they expects Dana to be a lady. So whenever Dana tried to gather a posse, she doesn't get help. If Dana is able to get a posse, she is expected to return back to town at a decent time and not to spend a night with men. Oh, the irony of the situation for a woman in law enforcement.

The narrator, Laural Merlington does a good job in narrating the story. Her voice and tone does capture my attention but it is not a memorable voice that sticks out among the many narrators. The narrator is perfect for this genre and possibly great to continue as the narrator for the Wyoming's Legacy.

I was given this audiobook by the author via Audiobook Blast in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated or influence in any way for writing this review.
