Set in 1885, Oreana, Idaho Territory. Daisy Gardner is a twenty-two year old spinster. Though she has nothing against marriage, Daisy does not want to end up wed to some rancher and stuck out in the sticks forever. Daisy wants to be a female detective, just like Honey Beaulieu, the lead character in her favorite dime novel series. Recently, Oreana has hired its first town marshal, Sidney Adler. But Adler's arrival has been delayed due to his being shot in the leg. Daisy plans to woo and wed the new marshal as soon as possible. (It is the only way she could continue with her detective work and be married at the same time.) So when a man named Bosco Kunkle rides into town asking for a doctor to help an unconscious man near town (who has a gunshot wound in his leg), everyone assumes the new marshal has arrived.

Cole Richards runs a ranch on Sinker Creek. Two miners, Porker and Gib Rankin, have sluiced his ranch's creek into a muddy dribble. Cole makes the mistake of telling Bosco that if the bank in Silver City loans the miners any money, the ranch would then be in a world of trouble. Bosco, who is not too bright at times but is the best-hearted man Cole has ever known, decides to rob the bank of the miners' would-be money. While trying to stop Bosco, Cole ends up getting his leg shot by the female teller, Iris, and the duo find themselves on the run.

After blacking out, Cole revives to find himself in the small town of Oreana and being sworn in as Marshal Sidney Adler. He cannot do much about the misconception except play along, or he and Bosco (who has been sworn in as a deputy) would be suspected of holding up the bank in Silver City. Cole plans to leave town as soon as his wound allows, but who should happen to be in Oreana than the Rankin brothers?

Mayhem reigns in Jacquie Rogers' Much Ado About Marshals! When Cole Richards, shot for bank robbery, finds himself appointed marshal of a small town, I had to keep turning pages to see how much deeper this hole would get! I laughed out loud at the heroine Sarah Gardner, whose obsession with "Honey Bileau, Female Detective" carries her on a parallel track--and when the two collide, watch out! No spoilers here, but this book was a hoot from start to finish with twists galore. A fast, fun and frolicking western!

Need a break? This is a FUN book (seriously--when's the last time you read a laugh-out-loud book?)! Turn off the iphone, kick off yer boots (or Jimmy Choos) and let Jacquie Rogers provide that mini-vacation you KNOW you need!

Much Ado About Marshals was such a fun and engaging story I couldn't put it down! Ms. Rogers is a master story teller who has the rare gift to write humor that is actually laugh out loud funny. From page one this charming comedy of errors kept me turning the page well into the night. Loved Cole who is so caught up in an impossible situation, loved the feisty, wanna-be detective, Daisy(!), and Cole's sidekick, Bosco, is an absolute hoot! What a rollicking, romantic adventure in the Old West!!!

What a great book!! From the very beginning I knew I was going to have a hard time putting this book down. Much Ado About Marshals was such a joy to read. I laughed throughout the book, Jacqui has a way with her words. She also has great characters that you do not forget and by the end of the read you know them like friends. I would highly recommend you pick this book up and read it!! I was happy to find out this was the first in a series.

Full of laughs, sexy scenes, and exciting adventures, this book is like a fun romp through the Old West. Daisy is a hoot and so full of energy that she kept me thoroughly tickled through the last page. Cole is rugged and sexy and just trying to do the right thing--my kind of hero! The plot is such a great concept for a book, and Bosco is sure to be a favorite. Jacquie Rogers knows how to entertain!

This well-written and clever romantic western is sure to please. Jacquie Rogers has penned up a winner with this delicious tale of a young marshall caught up in a web not entirely of his own device. You'll keep turning the pages until the satisfying ending.

Daisy Gardner is determined to be a detective. A twenty two year old "spinster" living in the inauspicious town of Oreana, Idaho, Daisy seeks most of her information about life and love from the escapades of her dime store novel heroine Honey Beaulieu. When a particularly thorny task presents itself Daisy turns to Honey Beaulieu Mysteries for a surefire answer.

Daisy's parents think it is high time Daisy marries -- preferably to the wealthiest man they can finagle. Not so Daisy. To be a detective one must solve crimes and live in town quickly eliminating numerous potential husbands. Ranchers are out, as are farmers. Don't even think about miners. Nope, Daisy insists the single best husband for her is a Marshal -- so she set out to snare one. In Daisy's carefully planned universe, Marshals are tall, typically dark and, of course, handsome.

Enter Cole Richards. Cole fits the physical bill. Plus he is as sexy as any Honey Beaulieu hero and sends tingles up Daisy's spine. The only problem is Cole is wanted for bank robbery. In a series of twists and turns worthy of a Shakespeare comedy, we meet not one but three "marshals" who claim to be Sidney Adler, the Marshal who answered Daisy's call.

The most reluctant imposter is Cole. The only reason he's in Oreana is his unfortunate attempt to prevent his long time sidekick Bosco Kunkle's bungled attempt to rob a bank. Cole is shot in the botched robbery by the single person who can identify him as the outlaw -- none other than Daisy's sister Iris. And so the fun begins.

Eager to avoid a necktie party where he is the honored guest, the wounded Cole reluctantly becomes the Marshal.
