The Bride's Prerogative by Susan Page Davis - Review

(taken from
Fergus, Idaho, Becomes Home to Three Mysteries Ending in Romances
(Ladies' Shooting Club)
Enjoy all three of Susan Page Davis's Wild West novels in one jumbo book. Gert Dooley organizes target practice for the women of Fergus, Idaho, but the shooting club soon becomes an integral part of solving a murder--and bringing the sheriff and Gert together. A string of mysterious events has the women trying to restore peace while coaxing Libby Adams and the shy gunsmith together. Vashti Edwards dream job as a stage coach driver becomes especially dangerous when a band of robbers begins to attack the stagecoach line and threatens her chances with the town's blacksmith.

I really enjoyed these stories about three headstrong women who quietly changed a town out of fear for themselves by creating the Ladies' Shooting Club against some objections by the men of the town, some of them husbands. The little bit of mystery woven in makes them even more of a fun read. Susan did a great job and I'm glad I got to read all three books together. I also liked how even though each story was mainly about a different woman, the three stories included all of the characters in all three books. Thank you Susan, I would gladly recommend this book, these books, to other historical fiction readers.
