Today I’m featuring

In Her Sights by Karen Witemeyer.

About the Book

He’s sworn off love, but she has his heart in her sights and doesn’t intend to miss.

Stained by his wastrel father’s legacy, Jackson Spivey lives on the fringes of society. Townsfolk tolerate him since he keeps the local hotel supplied with fresh game, but mothers coach their daughters to avoid him. After tasting consistent rejection, Jackson spurns all attempts at courtship. The only things he can count on are his guns and his God.

Tessa James has been secretly in love with Jackson for ages, but trying to gain his favor only pushes him further away. When she learns Annie Oakley is traveling through Texas, Tessa seeks lessons from the famed markswoman. If Jackson’s life revolves around guns, taking up shooting might help her engage his interest. Too bad she can’t hit the broad side of a barn.

When Annie loans Tessa a custom pistol, however, things begin to change. The lore behind the mysterious weapon fosters hope that Tessa might finally hit the target of Jackson’s heart. But when danger threatens, she might be forced to use the pistol for something other than finding love.

  1. Loved Karen’s cute book! It’s a winner.
    I think you know my pick for this week!
    My first line this week is from Confessions to a Stranger by Danielle Grandinetti:
    The caw of a seagull yanked Adaleigh Stirland’s gaze from her worn journal.

  2. The cover gives me Anne of Green Gables vibes. 😀

    I’m currently reading A Match in the Making by Jen Turano. It’s so fun!
    “I don’t believe you’ve thoroughly considered our current situation, Mrs. Parker,” Gwendolyn said as she stuffed a bathing costume into the woven bag she was packing.
    I hope you have a great weekend! 😀❤️📚
