    Trails & Targets by Kelly Eilleen Hake is a light-hearted, enjoyable novel. Set in the Dakota Territory in 1889, this Western tale is the first book in the Dangerous Darlyns series with Slings & Arrows and Fire & Knives to follow, continuing the story of the Darlyn Family. This farm family, living in North Dakota, consists of the father and his four talented and skilled daughters. Bea, the oldest, is a sharpshooter, and her sisters possess equally amazing skills. When their path crosses two decent, law-abiding drifters, who believe that women should be respected and protected, all of their lives change. Add in the town villain, a banker, who has most of the town intimidated with the exception of the Darlyn Family and the two newcomers, and a highly interesting read awaits. I highly recommend this book, if someone likes a good Western tale. I received this book through TBCN in exchange for an honest review.

    This review was written for Trails & Targets - eBook.
    i have always ebjoyed this authors books, and this one was just a So So read, except for the 2 cuss words. they could have and should have been left out of this book. the whole story just draged, lots of history info that I did not know about like the "Bones Collectors" for profit. Okay plot between Gray & Bea, but it was just slow going at times during this book. plus i like historicals that is true to the period, and this one with 4 sisters with these skills, just to much to believe with times so hard back then. Very dissapointing, I will have to think before I read book 2 to see if it has improved. i sure hope so.

    Trails and Targets by Kelly Eileen Hake was a fun old west story about four sisters and their Pa trying to just live life off the land and to have a measure of peace. Unfortunately, there are some serious creepy townsfolk who think it is their business to support these young women. Greyson Wilder, our hero, is passing through the town on his way to Canada to look for and sell the slaughtered skeletons of the hunted buffalo. I found this tidbit of history interesting as I had not read or heard of it before. But in my homeschooling adventures with my children, I often did wonder what happened to all the bones of the buffalo that were slaughtered along the plains. Ms. Hake gives us some historical information to answer that question. Now Greyson is also running away, along with his partner, from skeletons in his past as well. What you have is an adventure and a romance that does not happen as you may expect it should and you have 4 sisters with some unusual talents. I look forward to the second in the series after the nice set up Ms. Hake gave us. I received my review copy from The Book Club Network, Inc. (TBCN) and the opinions are my own.

    TRAILS & TARGETS is the first book in Ms. Hakes new series Dangerous Darylns. I have to say its a unique approach to a western with four sisters trained to be Annie Oakley types and a hero who is a bone picker. I can honestly say this is the first book Ive ever read with a hero having that occupation.

    The book is slow starting, but about a fourth of the way in it piqued my interest. Then it floundered a bit more before getting more exciting again.

    If you like historical western romances, youll enjoy TRAILS & TARGETS. Set in the Dakota Territory, it is near to an area I visited once Devils Lake. It is fun to see a setting Im familiar with featured in a historical. I can actually see what Im reading about.

    Greyson Wilder is a bone picker. He and his partner travel the west to gather up the bones of buffaloes, take them to market where the bones are sold for money. He has quit his job as a Chicago police officer after the death of his wife and unborn child. He has carried a grudge against God since that time and withdrawn from people. He agrees to his partners request to barter with the wagon full of women in the town of Tallgrass, but then they will leave town. One thing leads to another and before Greyson knows it he has agreed to stay and help plant spring crops while his partner takes the bones to Chicago.

    Bea Darlyn has been in the role of mother since the age of nine. She is now twenty and longs for a family of her own, but only if she is married to the right man. She learned her lesson when her former fianc wanted her to move to Oregon after their engagement was announced. She could never leave her family with her father being so ill. That engagement ended a couple of years ago. With Beas expertise in firearms and Irish heritage, she and her sisters are at odds with the mostly German town folk as their weapons skills are deemed unladylike. Now Greyson Wilder has entered Beas life and she is attracted to his good looks, but even more to his good character. He has told her he will be moving on to Canada and has no intention of staying in Tallgrass.

    I have enjoyed this authors previous works better than this one so Im not ruling out reading the next book in the series, but this one is just so-so. I probably will read book two to see if it is an improvement over the first one. This book isnt terrible, but it isnt great either. The characters felt flat to me and I didnt make a connection with either of the two main characters in this first story. The second book, Slings and Arrows, will focus on the character of Ariel. If I had to choose a favorite character, then she is the one I liked the best so I hope her story is more interesting.
