Publisher's Summary

When a down-on-its-luck mining town makes Darcy Duncan marshal after she shoots a bank robber, she puts every effort into helping the town. Her accident-prone nature, however, makes the task difficult as well as throws her into the arms of an unsuspecting drifter.
All Gil Halsey wants is to bring back the boss's son and secure the foreman job on a large cattle ranch. He's been running from his past and has finally found a place to settle. That is until a scrawny, greenhorn marshal turns out to be an enticing, young woman who lures him from his path.

I didn't get past the first few chapters. The author continually hammered out the premise behind the story ... "Maybe this job won't be so hard after all" ... "She was tired of roaming and wanted to settle down" ... "She hadn't eaten X since Y" .... "She needed to feed her brother Jeremy" ... "She only needed to figure out what Craven was up to" ... on and on and on. I've learned that a story which begins with repetition, isn't likely to stray from it as the plot progresses. That said, I returned this one for a refund.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would recommend this audiobook. It's a book that as you listen grows on you and manages to pull you into the story as you listen.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character was the hero. He was a character that had to learn to forgive himself to be able to be completely happy, and had to learn to change the direction of his life to end up being happy.

What about Holly Adams’s performance did you like?

I loved her acting. Her voices matches the time and how they would sound during those times. And must admit her male hero voice sound really nice.

If you could rename Marshal in Petticoats, what would you call it?

I would not rename this book, I think the title matches the book perfectly.

Any additional comments?

This audio book is something that comes and surprises you with comedy that pops up as you go. Also pulls at you, because if things that occur through the book.
