Sam Bishop is a man on the run. When he is almost murdered by a wealthy gambler, Sam manages to escape (with his almost killer’s dog) and travels to Simpson Creek, Texas, a town advertising for “marriage-minded bachelors”. A rich wife is just what Sam needs to make his gambling problems disappear.

Prissy Gilmore is the lady who placed the ad, and when Sam comes to town, she is instantly transfixed by the man and his dog, a man that she believes came to town to take the position as Sheriff.

Sam is happy to be Sheriff, if it means that fortune is smiling on him with the beautiful Ms. Prissy Gilmore. But when Sam’s past catches up with him everything could be destroyed.

THE SHERIFF’S SWEETHEART is the third book in the Brides of Simpson Creek series, but it easily stands alone. I didn’t have the pleasure of reading the first two books in this series, but I had no problem reading this book and keeping up with what happened.

The story is well-written with some surprising twists along the way. I enjoyed getting to know these two well-written characters and cheered for them as they made important discoveries about themselves. I’m looking forward to the next book in this series. Discussion questions are included at the end of the book. $5.50. 280 pages.
