All she wanted — a gold band. What she got — a tin star.
Maud Overstreet figured she'd grow up, get married, have a house with a white picket fence and more kids than she could count. After thirty-five years, she still hopes it will happen.
Now, in 1872, Dry Creek's town council offers her the job of replacement sheriff; she accepts — with trepidation. Badge now pinned on her frilly blouse, for the first time, she enters a saloon, tastes whiskey, learns to shoot, to drive a stagecoach, to arrest people.
The discovery of gold brings unsavory characters, including the notorious James Mooney Gang. Impending bank robbery rumors spread. Maud enlists the help of Mayor Seth Critoli, but it's all on her to save Dry Creek from disaster.
