About the Book:

Sheriff Tully Barrett never knew trouble had such a pretty face.

Brianna Dumont never knew the law could be so handsome and hardheaded.
Pampered and privileged, Brianna Dumont escapes the life she’s always known in an effort to clear her father’s good name. She arrives in Baker City, Oregon, intent on selling her father’s shares in a mine. Only the mine is a bust, her father’s partner is a crusty ol’ coot who hates women, and the sheriff in town is determined to keep her behind bars.

With good friends around him, a small ranch of his own, and a fulfilling job as sheriff, Tully Barrett loves his life. Then an exasperating woman shows up, making demands and driving him crazy. No matter how hard he tries to ignore her brains and beauty, she works her way under his skin.

Corsets and Cuffs captures the fun-loving banter of two strong-willed characters determined not to fall in love in this sweet historical romance.

My Rating & Thoughts:  🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟   (4 stars)
This is the third book in the Baker City Brides series and just as entertaining as the previous two. This one focuses on Tully and introduces Brianna. The two of them are complete opposites. Tully is Sheriff, a bit rough around the edges and likes to tease. Brianna comes from the other side of the states and is a proper lady used to the finer things. Her arrival in Baker City has not been pleasant and she rubs Tully the wrong way right from the beginning. I loved the banter between these two. There were so many entertaining interactions between them. Tully puts Brianna in jail, not just once but twice! What did she do? One of my favourite moments was the joke that Brianna played on Tully, she got him good.

There were a couple mysteries to unravel, what secret is Brianna hiding and what is Sammy’s story? As I was reading I was trying to figure out the answers before it was revealed, but I was unsuccessful. I was surprised but some of the twists that happened, but I loved that I hadn’t figured it all out.
Eventually Tully and Brianna are able to get past their differences and open themselves to love. This was an enjoyable story with some really sweet moments. I loved that the characters from the previous books are woven into this story, not only do we get to keep up to date what is happening with them but they have regular involvement that felt like you right there with the group of friends getting together.
