Marrying Miss Marshall has a great combination of action, danger, and romance. I listened to this book through Audible and I had a great time following what was going on in the lives of Danna and Chas. I have enjoyed listening to this narrator before and I enjoyed most of her telling of the story. A couple of scenes where she had to read in a voice where a man was yelling were not really to my liking, but those were only a couple of times and otherwise I very much liked the narration.
This was a fun and enjoyable book. There are many misunderstandings between these two main characters. The guilt that Chas carries impacts many of his decisions. And the lack of self-confidence that Danna sometimes deals with in regards to how she feels as a woman keep her from understanding how others view her.
I thought the author did a good job of creating many twists and turns in the story and the way she tied everything up at the end was very nice. A sweet, western romance.
I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Filling the shoes of her late husband as town marshal hasn’t been easy for Danna Carpenter. She’s not only fighting criminals, she’s also fighting to earn the respect of the townspeople. So crossing paths with tenderfoot detective Chas O’Grady is the last thing she needs. He’s hunting a band of cattle rustlers and isn’t used to the rugged Wyoming landscape. Teaming up is their only option, but when circumstances place them in a compromising situation, the town forces a more permanent partnership–marriage. If they can let down their guards with each other they might find that love is the greatest catch of all.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
At a young age, Lacy Williams began imagining alternate endings for her favorite cartoon shows. She soon followed that with a newspaper for the neighborhood kids—”published” on a dot matrix printer!—and notebooks full of stories written in longhand. In high school she took a correspondence course and experienced an editor’s red pen for the first time. Thankfully, her passion for writing was strong enough to survive the experience.
Lacy, her husband and her two young children live in Oklahoma, where they enjoy taking their three Cavalier King Charles spaniels to the park. One of the dogs (Mr. Bingley—named after Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice character) is a registered Therapy Dog and Lacy volunteers with him at local libraries in their Kids Reading to Dogs program to help promote literacy in kids.
Lacy adores reading almost as much as writing, and usually reads the end of the book first. She promises readers happily-ever-afters guaranteed. Lacy’s debut novel won the American Christian Fiction Writers’ prestigious Genesis Award before being published. As an active ACFW member, she attends conferences and mentors new writers.
