The Sheriffs of Savage Wells by Sarah M. Eden {A Proper Romance Book Review}

A Proper Romance by Shadow Mountain has struck again!  I have adored every single book I have read so far and once again, A Proper Romance did not disappoint!  A bonus, Sarah M. Eden is one of my favorite authors.  You can read a couple of my reviews of her other books here.  In this new book we get a feisty heroine, Paisley Bell, who is determined to be the new Sheriff of Savage Wells, Wyoming.


The small town of Savage Wells is barely big enough for the people who call it home; it certainly isn’t big enough for more than one sheriff. 
Yet when famed lawman Cade O’Brien rides into town, he finds he’s not the only man ready to take on the job. What’s more, one of his competitors is a woman. 
Paisley Bell loves her town and the eccentric people in it. She’s been the acting sheriff for months and isn’t too keen on relinquishing the job to anyone else. Not only does she love the work, but she also needs the income to take care of her ailing father. 
It’s a true battle of the sexes, and sparks fly between the two as Cade and Paisley banter and boast, neither one ready to acknowledge the attraction they have for each other. But when Paisley’s former beau shows up, along with a band of bank robbers, Savage Wells is suddenly faced with the kind of peril that only a sheriff can manage. Who will be man enough—or woman enough—to step up, claim the badge, and save the town?

Paisley Bell is something else.  She spent several months covering for an inept and distracted sheriff, even going so far as to bringing in a notorious gang of outlaws (of which she got no credit).  When the town of Savage Wells decides to hire a new sheriff, Paisley throws her name in the pool of candidates, much to the chagrin of Cade O'Brien, well-known law man and certain shoo-in for the position.  What Cade doesn't know is that Paisley is not going to give up easily and he quickly discovers that she can best him at many of his own skills.  She is quick, witty, a sharp-shooter, and level-headed in dangerous situations.  The more they compete with each other to try to win the title of sheriff, the more they begin to respect one another, and heaven-forbid...maybe even admire one another?  Yes!  :)

I rarely read books where the heroine is a feisty "I can do it myself type."  I admit to being more of a "Cinderella story" type person, but I couldn't put this book down!  For all of Paisley's bluster, she is tender and softhearted and I grew so fond of her character.  The book left me hanging a little in the end...maybe it is to keep us wondering until a 2nd book comes out?  After all, I'm very worried about Dr. Gideon MacNamara.  I mean, hello!  He's handsome...and single...and so nice! 

The Sheriffs of Savage Wells can be purchased from your favorite retailer!  You'll love it!

Our Disney Vacation 2016

This will be a picture intense post! We had such a wonderful trip and a fun time on our Disney Vacation this year! We spent 1 day at Lego Land, 4 Days at Walt Disney World and 3 Days on the Disney Cruise!  Wow!  We were exhausted but we had so much fun!  Here are lots of pictures:


Riding the Island in the Sky. 



I didn't take very many pictures on this trip...and it was kind of refreshing to not be constantly fumbling for a phone or camera...but in the end we didn't have very many.  

At Norway in Epcot. 

The girls did passports on their trip around the World Showcase. 

Kayley feeding Milo.   

It rained...  a LOT! 



And when it wasn't raining it was wickedly hot! 

Our chariot awaits! 

Our room on the cruise.  Maggie's bed is the couch and Kayley's dropped down from the ceiling.  We had a great concierge come to set up our room each evening and put it back together again each morning.  He always folded a towel in a funny shape... I wish I had thought to take a few pictures of them...they were cute. 


Playing aboard ship...   


The view of the main the deck.   

Little girls in big portholes. 


In the Millennium Falcon. 

On the dance floor at the Oceaneer Club.  Don't be deceived...there really were about a trillion more people on board than it looks right now... 

In Andy's room... 



Back on the Melennium  Falcon!



Out to sea...  Quite a view.  No land in sight.  
(Remind me to tell you about how sea sick I got...it was bad.) 

The guys got facials...  
(us girls did too, sorry no incriminating photos of us!  LOL)


Pedi's 


Playing a really fun detective game....it was all over the ship.  The pictures come to life and you solve mysteries... 

I ate escargot.  Really.  (and caviar!)
I feel so cultured now. 

Beautiful sunset! 

Pirate Night!  ARRR! 

At Disney's private island, Castaway Cay. 

Hmmm...  something washed ashore. 

Snorkeling!  It was everybody's first time and really neat.

My treasure I found while snorkeling. 

Kayley's snorkeling treasure! 

The view from our private cabana. 

Mount Rustmore. 



Island girls! 

We had a great time!  We cannot wait to go cruising again!
