This book has an underlining romantic theme, which adds to the story. Levi, in the form of Ethan Moses, has to find his soul mate after he has already lost her once. When he figures out who his soul mate is, the moment is unforgettable and all romantics are bound to love it.
The most monumental experience in the book comes in the last chapter. This is because everything the work, the sacrifices, the planning, the praying, each success, each failure finally makes sense. The writing and plotting are outstanding here. The author describes Jesus' eyes, saying they are a blue that no one has ever seen before and they are like two worlds spinning. Also, in this chapter Jesus talks to "E," and what he says to him is peaceful and heartfelt. This book has a very satisfying ending and doesn't leave the reader with unanswered questions.
This book is for adults who want to read an interesting and inspirational story about an angel who helps God do his will in an odd but interesting way. Terry Goetz does a great job of describing all the events that happen, and he makes the reader feel as though he or she is experiencing the events personally.

Naturally when the former sheriff is killed and Ethan takes his place, women are scared. Scared enough to take up firearms and head to Gert where they formed "The Ladies Shooting Club", much to the horror to the men of Fergus, Idaho. When Ethan begins to have doubts-and starts to absentmindedly call her Trudy-Gert wonders what their lives may have in store for them. Both for Ethan and her, the town of Fergus, and hanging most in the balance, Th Ladies Shooting Club. Will they survive the mysteries ahead? Or will the town crumble before their eyes?
Ethan Chapman has always said he can't afford any distractions...actually he's always thought he wasn't good enough for any woman. Which is exactly why Ethan is shocked when the "plain" little sister of his best friend inhabits his dreams. To top things off, trying to run a ranch while fighting his attraction is hard enough without adding the duties of the sheriff onto his plate. Unfortunately, seemingly the whole town of Fergus, Idaho disagrees and Ethan finds himself trying to solve a mystery. Then the Ladies Shooting Club gets up and running and men come to him upset.When more tragedies occur, and a strange collection grow,could this mystery end up bigger then any of them could ever imagine? Will he have to choose between the town's favor and the ladies'? And when the name Trudy slips out of his mouth, will she ever slip out of his mind?
*What I liked*
This story was so sweet!! I have a thing for male protagonists who are more timid, humble, reserved versus the cocky, insecure and Ethan certainly fit my quota! The spunk that Gert has sets it off quite nicely and I love their interactions. It was surprising to find so much mystery in a western and I LOVED it! One of my favorite characters was Hiram so I was squeaking with joy when I saw he was to be featured in book two. Guess I know what I'm reading tonight!!
*What I didn't like*
I didn't like when it ended! Fortunately for me that can be remedied quite quickly with book two. :)
I give The Sheriff's Surrender...5 stars!
*Why my rating is what it is*
My rating is five stars because of fantastic characters, mysteries galore, and a believable, interesting story line.

A little romance is developed along the way, but you need to read the next book (about Gertrude's brother Hiriam) to find out more of what happens with Ethan & Gertrude.
