From Booklist

Paris Garrett promised her papa she'd let nothing keep her from becoming a big star on the musical stage, and a job offer in Chance, in the Arizona Territory, is her big break. Now all she has to do is avoid her three overprotective brothers and get a bothersome tune out of her head and played on a piano. But a run-in with Joshua Grant, former sheriff and unwanted traveling companion, adds one more item to that list: don't fall in love with a gorgeous, stubborn, bona fide hitch in her plans. Ciotta uses her own musical-theater background to pen an adorable tale that will put a smile on your face and a warm feeling in your heart. All the elements that made old Saturday afternoon Westerns fun are here: dusty trails, ornery secondary characters, well-timed humor, a sly villain, a good gunfight or two, and a hero and heroine to root for all the way.

Beth Ciotta's release Lasso the Moon is a wonderful historical romance. I've been enjoying her other releases and this is no exception. This is the story of Paris Garret who made the promise early in life to lasso the moon, and become a big star. Our spunky heroine leaves the big time (San Francisco in 1877) for the Arizona Territory to sing in the back of beyond in an opera house. She meets one hunky lawman named Joshua Grant. This story made me laugh. The main characters are both loveable, and as I was reading I couldn't help but hope the author would write about Paris's sexy brothers. I checked her website and sure enough, there are more installments to come. I can't wait to read The Fall of Rome.

In classic Ciotta style, she creates a world in Lasso the Moon that I tumbled into immediately. Set in the rugged west, a young woman goes out to make it on her own as a stage actress. I adored the main character, Paris, from the very first time she entered the story. She's fiery, determined, yet innocent. The antics she gets involved with reminded me of characters in Janet Evanovich's stories. They both write main female characters that are naive in a way that makes them endearing yet hilarious. Many times I laughed out loud at the things Paris did without realizing the consequences she would face until it was too late. Enter Josh Grant. In typical western fashion he's chivalrous and when their paths cross the sparks fly. Nevermind she can't help thinking about him, even though he infuriates her. On the night they meet he carries her out of a bar on his shoulder and yet the next day he walks away from her. Both are lost souls with baggage and neither want to be tied down. Paris despises housework and being in the kitchen and has no desire to settle down. Joshua loved his job as sheriff and had to walk away for family. Told from alternating viewpoints, this book tackles family issues, independence, and what it's like to fall in love when you're not looking. Book one in the trilogy is highly recommeded.

Lasso the Moon: Peacemakers: Old West - Author Beth Ciotta. *****

This was an outstanding Western Romance. It was sensitive with such warmth between the two characters. A serendipitous meeting becomes a deep love.

Josh Grant is a recently retired sheriff and Paris a want to be star. Paris has spent her whole life dedicated to music. Although sheltered by her four older brothers since her parents died when she was quite young. She is driven by her love for music and considered freakish.

Although from different backgrounds they were kindred spirits. Some of the passages in this book were very touching and soul searching others just hilarious. I was laughing out loud with some of the interactions and conversations. This is an excellent read and I would highly recommend it. This is my first Beth Ciotta read but I do intend to read many more of her books.

Let me start by saying I do not usually read Historicals. But, some authors, I will read whatever genre they write - Beth Ciotta happens to be one of those authors - and I wasn't sorry reading Lasso the Moon. A very naïve young woman runs away from her brothers in California to the wild Arizona Territory to make her mark on the entertainment world. Paris has a special knack for finding trouble. Ex-sheriff Josh Grant has a special knack for always being around when Paris finds trouble. They have both been put on a track not necessarily of their choosing by loved ones - Paris by her father and Josh by his father-figure uncle. Neither wants to fall in love. Along the way, they have to deal with out-laws like his cousin. Getting to their destination and his taking over the Desert Moon and her singing on the stage there is not easy, with her brothers on the way to find her and take her back home and his cousin determined to ruin him. What they find is you have to figure out what your dreams are - not the dreams imposed upon you by others. Sometimes love is worth the risk.

Paris Garrett made a promise to her father when she was young girl, now a young women she is trying to keep that promise. Then comes along the strong good looking Joshua Grant and promise's are hard to keep, This is a very good book and I enjoy reading it from first page to the last one. There is humor with the way Paris thinks and express herself causing me to laugh out loud a couple times (the egg toss helped). Yes there are the bad guys you love to hate the one after Paris and the jealous cousin Niles who is after Josh. I will be reading the others in this series...

***Received from Tasty Book Tours for an honest review***

Let’s see. Where do I start?

We’ll start with Paris. I love her individuality. In a time when women were little more than housewives and childbearers, Paris aspired to be more. Her theatrical background certainly ensured she would dream big, but dreaming big and pursuing those big dreams are two entirely different things. With a little bit of help, she slipped away from her overprotective brothers and made West in pursuit of her dreams.

Until she met Joshua Grant. Or maybe it’s the other way around, lol. Joshua’s orderly life is already in chaos with the sudden acquirement of an establishment he doesn’t want. He sure doesn’t need the complication Paris brings with her. But what a fine-looking complication she is. She’s his complete opposite, probably is everything he shouldn’t want in a lifelong companion, but she turns out to be exactly what he needs.

I loved reading this book. There’s humor, bickering, love, suspense, and humor. Did I say that already? Honestly, I can’t remember reading a historical western where the heroine made me laugh so much. Actually, I don’t remember laughing so much reading a historical western period. This is a terrific story with the right combination of fact and fiction, sprinkled with humor and love to make it a romance I will definitely read again.
