Today’s book review features
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.

I received a complimentary copy of this book.
I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC guidelines.
In Her Sights by Karen Witemeyer is the first novella in the Pink Pistol Sisterhood novella series.
I love Karen Witemeyer’s historical romances, so I was thrilled to have an opportunity to read In Her Sights. This was a delightful story! The two main characters were youths in previous books, making it fun to visit them and a few other characters.
I was rooting for Tessa the whole way. And Jackson was wonderful, I’m so glad he got a happily ever after! Then there’s the target practice scene…so good! The emotion, the romance, the unexpected. I loved it all!
The next novellas are written by other authors, who have combined to write the Pink Pistol Magazine. According to Karen Witemeyer, “this is a free promo magazine that features the series as a whole along with my novella. The magazine is filled with goodies like an author interview, a word scramble, recipes, the first chapter of my story, and other bonus goodies.” Sound interested? You can download the magazine for free here.
