Book Review: Never Love A Law Man by Jo Goodman

Book one in the Reidsville Series

Never Love a Lawman sees the return of Jo Goodman to western romance after a long stint in the regency era for a while there. And while I have loved all her regencies I have to say I was more than excited to see her return to the Wild West, and Jo as always didn’t disappoint! Rachel Bailey is a lady with a very mysterious and haunting past that she has tried desperately to put behind her. She has given up everything in her past to protect those that she loves and moved to small mining community of Reidsville, Colorado where she knows no one and better yet no one knows her. As the town seamstress she has eked out a very solitary and comfortable existence for herself. But unfortunately for Rachel as we all know the past seems to never want to stay hidden and once her demons resurface her quiet life is turned into anything but quiet or comfortable.

From the first time Sherriff Wyatt Cooper laid eyes on Rachel Bailey he thought watching her as a “pure pleasure”. Everything about the prim and proper and yes irritatingly secretive Rachel Bailey is enticing. However Rachel isn’t such a mystery woman to Wyatt as he knows way more about the seamstress than she could ever imagine. When circumstances forces them into a reluctant partnership ( and a marriage of convenience) that could save the town neither of them is quiet sure what the outcome will be. They each have their scars from the past. But as outside forces continue to push the two of them together, the most unlikely of things occurs… something that Wyatt and Rachel neither knew they wanted, but could be the thing that brings life back to both of their scarred existences…love.

Can the fragile bonds that they have begun to slowly build between them stand against the coming horrors of the past that resurface and threaten to tear them and the entire town apart? It will take cunning, courage, and a little luck for them to survive when the man that ruined Rachel’s life comes to town wanting to take over more than just Reidsville and it’s mine…he wants Rachel back for himself.

If you love a great rich read you need look no further than a Jo Goodman book. I have long been a fan of her writing, and every time I read a new book it reaffirms why I think that way. Jo has a way of creating such vivid and real characters and settings that you feel immersed in their lives and a part of their community. There are very few writers who can get under the skin of their readers, but Ms. Goodman is a master at it! Long after you read the last line you long for more and can’t wait to read the next book to revisit the new friends you feel you have meet in the pages of her books. I am most assuredly looking forward to seeing the good people of Reidsville Colorado again! If you love Jo’s books you certainly are going to love her return to the west but if you haven’t given her books a try yet you should pick this one up and give yourself a true treat indeed!


Rachel Bailey may seem like just a beautiful newcomer to most of Reidsville, Colorado, but Sheriff Wyatt Cooper knows she's much more. Through a twist of fate, Rachel is the inheritor of a very valuable commodity: control of the railway that keeps the isolated mining town connected to the world. That is, she will be, if she agrees to the surprising stipulation in her benefactor's will-that she marry Wyatt.

Rachel has no choice: refusing the marriage could put all of Reidsville in the hands of an outsider, and not just any outsider but the cruel tyrant she has come here to escape. Yet living with Wyatt will be her greatest challenge. For he has a tempting way about him that makes Rachel forget theirs is a marriage in name only- until her frightening past shows up to remind them exactly how much they have at stake…
