Gabby Oaks: The Sheriff of Sierra West by Joe Field
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A fun, futuristic western with a six-shooter totin’ heroine who jumps ravines in her ATV and busts drug rings. Gabby is a likable sheriff with a heart of gold and an incredible shot who is thrown into a tricky situation trying to save her beloved Sierra West from black tar being slung by her wicked cousin.
While the story is entertaining and the characters well fleshed-out, it reads like a made-for-TV movie with B-list actors and a cheesy script. The dialogue is rarely natural and can sound very Hallmark, and the situations are very unbelievable. Even though it is clearly set in the future, or an alternate world, many concepts were hard to swallow. A cannon that shoots snakes screams Sharknado.
Regardless, if you’re looking for a good, light read that will give you an occasional chuckle and a lot of smiles, you will find it with this book.
