About the Book
When the new marshal in town needs volunteers, one of the first to sign up is Miss Rosie Decker. And why wouldn’t she? She’s a sharpshooting, horse-taming tomboy—and she’s out for revenge. Marshal Hank Walker is forming a posse to find the man who killed her sweetheart, and Rosie is determined to help track him down. When the marshal refuses her service on account of her being a woman, Rosie is undeterred. If it’s a man Marshal Walker wants, it’s a man he’ll get.
With his posse assembled, Hank Walker is confident he’ll be able to track down the criminal. His confidence grows as he recognizes the incomparable skill of one young man in his posse—Ross. That is, until the day Ross’s mustache falls off, revealing “his” true identity. Rosie Decker has duped him. Banished back to town, it’s time for Rosie to prove her mettle. Though working alongside the unwilling marshal is complicated, it is the unexpected tenderness she feels for him that proves most problematic. How can she demonstrate her skill while also setting out to win the heart of the man who seems bent on keeping her out of his way?
About the Author
I grew up in Payson, Utah. Ever since elementary school I have loved to write. In junior high and high school I was on the newspaper staff. My senior year, I even had my own column: Carolyn’s Corner. While attending USU as a freshman, my journalism teacher, in an effort to “prepare me for the real world of writing," tore down my work to the point that I gave up, dropped my minor of journalism, and concentrated on my other love—biology. I graduated with a BS in Horticulture and an MS in Botany and went on to start my own business in a totally unrelated field: manufacturing puppets. In 2006, after having raised my five kids and growing my business to a point of being viable to sell, I rediscovered my love of writing. I have since sold my manufacturing business and I spend a good portion of my time writing, or helping my grandkids and my garden grow. I now live in Kaysville, Utah.
Author Carolyn Twede Frank has written a amusing and entertaining story in her novel, Under the Stars. Although the story is pretty predictable and a bit slow in places, especially where the romance in the story comes in, this story is filled with plenty of intense action, including a posse of men trying to find a murderer, as well as jailing some robbers. The author has created some fun personalities in her characters, causing readers to want to read and learn more about them. This story is an enjoyable and sometimes funny western romance read.

I live in the west and enjoy reading stories set in the western states, plus I married a guy who grew up on a farm and fancies himself a cowboy!

I love how western romance brings back memories of watching westerns on TV with my Pappaw. :)
