"The Sherrif's Surrender" by Susan Page Davis

A Western with Ladies as the Heroins

The Sheriff's Surrender is a western about an old mining town whose sheriff is killed and replaced by one of the ranchers.  A serial killer continues to strike and the women decide to learn to shoot from Gert, an expert shooter and form a Ladies’ Shooting Club which helps out the sheriff.  I enjoyed this book even though it seemed far-fetched.  It was an entertaining read with a bit of romance and Christianity tossed in. 

I liked the subplot of how the women became closer and helped each other as they got to know one another better through the shooting club.  It has a good theme--that friends are good to have and we should get to know all kinds of people.

Please tell us: What categories of literature do you like? What are you reading now? Who are your top five favorite authors? Have you read this one? What did you think of it?


  1. Karen and Gerard, thanks for featuring my book. This was a fascinating time period to write about. Your readers will find a puzzle inside the book that they can solve to enter a contest from Summerside Press for more books. Blessings,

  2. I haven't heard of this book, but it sounds like an interesting one. I don't normally like books written in other periods, but I've learned that sometimes they still appeal to me so I don't judge them by their... uh... timetable! LOL...

    I mostly like murder mysteries, but I also like thrillers and science fiction. I'm not really into traditional "chick lit," but I like most of the ones written by black authors if they're substantial.

    Right now I'm reading mostly non-fiction (8 steps to a pain-free back) and I just finished the memoir Silent Tears.


Thanks for commenting and happy reading!
