I absolutely love, love, love this series! The Gunslinger series is guaranteed to make you smile! The Gunslinger’s Guide To Avoiding Matrimony is the second book in the Gunslinger series. This is Adam and Nora’s story.
Adam is a gunslinger wanting to retire. Adam finds the town of Desolation, a town he thought was fictional, known for giving men of criminal natures a new start. Nora is an independent, lonely woman facing losing everything she has if she can’t find a way to stop her father from gambling away her future. Adam and Nora are thrown together through hilarious circumstances. Adam must find a way to meet the town’s expectations and irritating laws while avoiding Nora if he wants to stay.
Adam is the unluckiest, accident-prone man! He tries fiercely to avoid Nora, but his lousy luck throws him into Nora’s path every time. Nora has always felt ignored, unwanted, and unattractive. Even her father berates her every chance he gets. I loved Nora’s spunk! Nora stands toe to toe with this notorious gunslinger, and Adam is hopelessly lost to Nora’s charms.
This book is a romcom and western expertly intertwined. If you don’t read westerns, I implore you to try this series. I instantly fell in love with this wily bunch of townspeople. The plot is flawlessly comical and endearingly romantic. The book is fast-paced, and I didn’t want it to end! I love that the characters from the first book showed up again. However, Adam and Nora’s story stands on its own. I have eagerly awaited this second installment, and I was ecstatic that it exceeded my expectations. Michelle McLean always delivers a well-put-together, hilarious, passionate story that leaves the reader wanting more. Michelle McLean, please write more Gunslinger books! I can’t wait to see what newcomer will haplessly wander into Desolation next!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through Netgalley and the publisher. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
