The Vigilante's Bride (Texas Rangers #1)The Vigilante's Bride by Yvonne Harris
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The core story of The Vigilante's Bride is good. The hero, Luke Sullivan, is everything a western hero ought to be. Upright, honest, handsome, a little bit edgy, and a true cowboy. The heroine, Emily McCarthy, is sweet and spunky. All good stuff.

But I found the distraction of every western element thrown into this one story to be a lot to overcome. From mail-order bride, to cattle rustlers, to stage hold-up, to shootout in a bar, to Indians, to dishonest land barren ... it has it ALL . Everything. In one book. I felt at times that it was moving from one western cliche to the next without much rhyme nor reason. And it never really came around full circle to meld the beginning with the end, giving purpose to the journey of both main characters. It just ended.

Was it awful? No. Was it stellar? No. It was somewhere in between. A nice read for when you don't want to think too hard about what you're reading.
