This week I am featuring The Sheriff's Surrender (Ladies' Shooting Club Book 1) by Susan Page Davis.
Gert Dooley aimed at the scrap of red calico and squeezed the trigger.
Gert Dooley can shoot the tail feathers off a jay at a hundred yards, but she wants ranger Ethan Chapman to see she's more than a crack shot with firearm. When the sheriff of Fergus, Idaho is murdered, Ethan is named his replacement. The women in town are scared to think a murderer is loose among them, so Gert forms the Ladies' Shooting Club to teach them how to protect themselves, their homes, and their families.
Ethan didn't ask to be named sheriff, but he accepts the position and takes on the investigation of the former lawman's mysterious death. Now he's between a rock and a hard place—being pressured by the town's women to restore order and safety to Fergus, and being pressured by the men who insist Ethan disband the upstart Ladies' Shooting Club. Another murder sends Ethan to Gert and her ladies for help in the investigation. But will the Ladies' Shooting Club unmask the murderer before he strikes again?
