Book Review – The Happenstance Marshal by Michael O’Gara

The Happenstance Marshal is about someone who is down on their luck and how she turns things around. She does this with her skill and a lot of luck. Although it started out unusually the story definitely picked up as it kept developing. This is a fast paced western book that definitely made me want more. 

Millie Boyd is a character full of spunk but with a rarely seen softer side. She has a great cast of supporting characters that I suspect will develop more as the series unfolds. There is a lot of action but not very many twists and turns, it was a straight up thriller and an easy read. 

A good author writes about what they know and Michael O’Gara does just that. The book successfully conveys  the nuances of how a city office works. My only complaint is that some instances seem just a little hard to believe but still I can’t wait to see what Millie gets into next!
