    I wanted to love this book. Annie Oakley is a fascinating woman in history with plenty of sass, strength, and tricks up her sleeve. The concept of this book, a mystery surrounding the legendary entertainer while traveling with the Wild West Show, is excellent but the execution fell completely flat.
    There was zero character development, the feelings the characters expressed for one another had little meaning because the author never shared the character's inner motivations or thoughts.

    Sharp Shoot'n, 15 year old, trapper, Champion of women and Indians Annie Mosey wants to wrangle her man. Whether it is the murderer of Indian friend Kimi or Frank Butler the star of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. Scoundrels appear in this 1885 telling of the adventures of Annie Oakley. Figuring out who is trying to do her wrong is complicated when her horse Buck is poisoned! Lots going on in Bovee's narrative that takes the reader back to the old west. Mosey on Back for a trip to the past. "A co ...more

    This novel stars a young Annie Oakley when she first joins Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show as a fifteen-year-old sharpshooter. She needs to money to support her mother and two younger siblings since the mother seems to only make bad choices in men since she became a widow. The current candidate is a drinker who has brought the family home near foreclosure.

    The Show is a hotbed of secrets and jealousies. Annie's new and sudden popularity with the public has made for former star Frank Butler jealous.

    I so wanted to love this mystery, but it fell a little flat for me.

    We meet a young Annie who wins a shooting contest and is invited to join Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. She quickly accepts since she is the sole support for her mother and two younger siblings. Once Annie is on the road a young girl is found dead. This seems to bother Annie and sets her to investigating, even though others write the death off and Annie doesn't seem to have a real connection to the girl. With others coming to be

    The concept of a mystery story featuring Annie Oakley and Frank Butler, with Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show as a backdrop is phenomenal and deeply interesting. Annie Oakley is an American legend whose life and career bridged the time period between America as a frontier and as a developed nation.

    Unfortunately,the execution of this story did not live up to the concept. I found the pacing and the writing to be uneven, and the plot not fully thought out. Character development is also lacking. Annie

    Quit in the second chapter. Too many unnecessary historical inaccuracies. It’s as if the author did no research at all. Not for me.

    This review was based on an ARC ebook received in return for an honest and unbiased review.
