Possum Trot, Texas 1883
Will Brockett certainly had his hands full!
Tomboy Paulie Johnson is the owner of Dry Wallow Saloon with a secret fondness for cowboy and part-time sheriff Will Brockett. The only problem is Paulie is his best friend and not his love interest. Paulie is determined to change Will's mind!
Will's ex-fiancée, the prettiest, most sought-after girl for sixty miles, Mary Ann Redfern up and married old timer Oat Murphy. But why, he had nothing to offer Mary Ann? Now Mary Ann is missing and sheriff Brockett aims to find her and bring her home. Did she just run away or did the murdering Indian renegade, Night Bird kidnap her? Sheriff Brockett and Oat set out to find her and Paulie is determined not to be left behind!
Paulie is also determined to show Will that she, not Mary Ann, is the wife for him. Since Mary Ann is everything soft and feminine, Paulie starts to change from her tomboy ways into a refined young lady that's perfect wife material. Now it's just convincing Will she's really his heart's desire.
Through their adventures of trying to find Mary Ann, Will begins to question if it's really Mary Ann he wants or his tomboy best friend Paulie he envisions settling down with.
This delightful, quick and easy tale will not disappoint!
