Thoughts

Well, this little story is quite interesting. The shotgun wedding was literal. I enjoyed the take on a prodigal story as a western, the plot was well done for the book-length, the characters enjoyably developed, and the setting well described. There was some content that made this a more mature romance but in all it was sweet.
