        FROM AUTHOR S WEBSITE I m a native of central Maine, and grew up on a small farm with a wonderful mom and dad, three sisters and a brother Most of my books take place in small towns, many of them in Maine My husband, Jim, and I moved to his birth state, Oregon, for a while after we were married, but decided to move back to Maine and be near my family It allowed our six children to grow up feeling close to their cousins and grandparents, and some of Jim s family have even moved to Maine Our children are all home schooled When Jim retired from his vocation as an editor at a daily newspaper, we moved from Maine to Kentucky.I ve always loved reading, history, and horses These things come together in several of my historical books Another longtime hobby of mine is genealogy, which has led me down many fascinating paths I m proud to be a DAR member Some of Jim s and my quirkier ancestors have inspired fictional characters For many years I worked for the Central Maine Morning Sentinel as a freelancer This experience was a great help in developing fictional characters and writing realistic scenes I also published nonfiction articles in several magazines and had several short stories appear in Woman s World, Grit, and Alfred Hitchcock s Mystery Magazine.


    1. The Outlaw Takes a Bride by Susan Page Davis is a first reads win and I'm giving my honest opinion. This is the first book by this author that I have read and I really enjoyed it. John Paynter is a cowboy working on the end of the line. Cam one of his fellow cowboys came riding up hard. He told Johnny he had to get going fast. The foreman had been murdered and everyone thought John was responsible since he had argued with the foreman. Johnny said he'll just ride down and clear his name. Cam told [...]

    2. I’ll be honest: the cover was the whole reason I bought this book. But the story in and of itself it was captivating! Johnny starts out as a man on the run, accused of a murder he didn’t commit. He is a follower and leans to the suggestions that Cam makes for his own safety. I really liked Johnny. He wasn’t your typical brawny, strong hero. He was a character who was growing, made wrong decisions, manned up to them, and strove for change.Then there was Sally. She was a desperate widow yet [...]

    3. First off absolutely gorgeous cover. I'd like to have that picture hanging on my wall.I liked these characters from page one, with the exception of Camhe rubbed me wrong from the very start. I loved the fix the hero found himself in! Definitely a novel onebut Johnny and Sally make a great couple. I enjoyed watching Sally heal from her past scars and watching John become a man, willing to stand up for what is right. The resolution was believable and satisfying. I have to say that I appreciate the [...]

    4. Johnny is a cowboy fleeing the Colorado Territory with his friend Cam after being sought for a murder he didn't commit. Sally has left St. Louis to meet the man who has offered her a new life and a new chance at family.Johnny arrives in Texas at his brother's Mark's ranch, only to discover Mark was murdered earlier in the morning. While he and Cam go through his brother's things, trying to decide what to do next, they discover that Mark was corresponding with a woman and had proposed marriage. S [...]

    5. by Andrea Renee CoxWhat do you think it would have been like to be a mail-order bride?Susan Page Davis gave us her take on that in the entertaining novel The Outlaw Takes a Bride. This book was such a delight. The tension and surprises were written with excellent timing. I especially enjoyed the play between the two lead characters. The awkwardness that came from the situations they were in was so sweet. I look forward to reading more historical books by Susan Davis. She sure knows how to spin a [...]

    6. Maybe 3 1/2 stars? I give it 4, though, because I had pretty low expectations to start out with. ;)First off, I knew the truth about Cam from the moment he appeared on the scene. I don't know how anyone could not know. And that did drive me a bit crazy throughout the story. However Johnny didn't know it, so I was able to look past that and see how he might be drawn into Cam's plans and ideas.Johnny's rather weak character was a pretty big drawback for me, but I liked seeing his struggle with the [...]

    7. I love a strong western historical romance and trying new to me authors, but it wasn't just that. The title and blurb roped me in quick. This was mail-order bride meets false identity meets frontier life danger and excitement. Oh, saddle that bronc up, I am so there. I didn't realize it was Inspiration Fiction at the time and discovered that as I read, but not a problem. I wanted to see what happened with this whole Sword of Damocles type scenario of a guy living a lie and it was just a matter o [...]

    8. Susan Page Davis writes "The Outlaw Takes a Bride"I am never dissappointed when I read a book by this author, great story that just wraps itself around you like a warm blanket and you don't want to leave it. now has a freebee on this one and you will want to check it out if you are a member there.Sally Golding is a young widow that was so dissappointed in her first marriage and it leaves her cautious when entering into thoughts of marriage againbutwomen had little choices in making a living in t [...]

    9. This was my first novel by Davis. I like the plot idea and though it was 100% predictable, I was hoping to encounter some lively characters. My first complaint is that while the author gives a very descriptive glimpse of what ranch life was like in this time period, I felt that was what I was primarily reading about the woes of a ranch wife. There were so, so many descriptions of everyday house chores. While probably accurate, I wish she had done this more with her characters as well. (view spoi [...]

    10. This is was an easy breezy read. Simply written and alternating between Johnny the outlaw and his bride Sally's point of view, the author gives you a glimpse of what ranch life was like in the good ole Wild West. Old customs and everyday house chores were brought to a clear picture-- the dusty roads and hills, the dry heat, and the pounding of horses hooves came to life in my head. That I enjoyed. The plot held some promise to it, but overall, it was predictable and I even found myself being ann [...]

    11. A new twist on the Mail Order Bride packed with a bunch of lies that spiral out of control, and in the end what is the truth. We also have a western story as we are on ranches spanding from Colorado to Texas, along with gunfights.When the book opens we see what a bleak life Sally Golding is living, she barely exists, and falls in love with a man she has never met by mail. No wonder she was willing to leave St Louis behind and head to the unknown in Texas to marry Mark Paynter.We meet Johnny Payn [...]

    12. I love mail order bride books and The Outlaw Takes a Bride is no exception. Johnny heads to his brothers ranch with his friend, Cam after Cam tells him he's wanted for murder. Johnny ends up assuming his brothers identity when they find Mark dead upon their arrival. If that isn't enough to deal with they then discover that Mark is expecting a mail order bride to arrive any day. The lies are piling up, much to Johnny's dismay. Cam convinces Johnny he has to marry her to keep the original lie abou [...]

    13. I like a good mystery as much as anyone, but I like it to be a mystery. I’d pegged the villain by Chapter Two, and reading a couple more chapters only deepened my conviction. So I was naughty: I skipped to the end, found out I was right, and was left wondering why the ‘hero’ hadn’t guessed.I’m sorry, but I have no desire to spend four or more hours reading a whodunit when it was obvious. It didn’t help that the romantic leads hadn’t met each other by the time I gave up. But it seem [...]

    14. DNF at 47%: Whoa, this was a doosey! I was really excited and then the writing was incredibly dry and not engaging at all. The characters were one-dimensional and boring.

    15. This is the first Susan Page Davis book that I’ve read, and I wish I had discovered her writings much sooner. I love historical fiction, but don’t read a lot of “cowboy” stories. I may need to change that. The Outlaw Takes a Bride is a well-written, well-researched story with a fascinating premise. The characters are realistic and complex, with strengths and struggles. Sally was sensitive and tender, yet resilient. Her faith was a natural part of her everyday life. Despite living a lie, [...]

    16. The first half or so of the story was not as enjoyable to me as I had hoped it would be. I wished that the whole “accidental” assumption of Mark’s identity and the somewhat “accidental” marriage had come about in a more logical manner, perhaps even more honest manner. From the start, Cam’s urging and logic gave off a bad odor and made Johnny seem like such a spineless sap. Cam seemed pretty idiotic, too. I don’t really enjoy reading stories about two saps as the main characters. So [...]

    17. I enjoyed this book very much. Johnny is working on a ranch and suddenly finds out he is accused of murder. His friend Cal talks him into running away to Texas because there is talk of stringing him up. Sally is a widow whose husband was abusive. She is living in St Louis. She becomes a mail order bride to a rancher in her home state of Texas. The story begins and it doesn't disappoint. I won't give spoilers but I will say I loved it. This is a great western.

    18. I usually love Ms. Davis's novels. I have read several others and thoroughly enjoyed them. I tried hard to like this one, but just couldn't get into it. It gives the ending away almost in the first or second chapter, it is so obvious. The characters were not that interesting. In fact, I found them irritating and not believable. If you like the Western Romance type novel, Susan Page Davis has several real good ones out there. I am sorry, but I just didn't think this one was one of them.

    19. Couldn't even handle it. Skipped ahead. Confirmed I'd solved the mystery by Chapter 2. Characters didn't have any.aracter. Come on Johnny, use your brain and grow a backbone.

    20. I had trouble with the pace because there were too many daily details. Also figured out what was going on at the beginning and it made me impatient to finish the book.

    21. This book was okay in my opinion.I picked up a copy of this book at a discount store and decided the plot to be interesting! I chose to reas this over my break and it proved enjoyable. This plot is different than some books of this calerber. I liked the fact that once the conflict was resolved the story continued on. If you are looking for a quick read, this is your book.

    22. Title: The Outlaw Takes a BrideAuthor: Susan Page DavisPages: 314Year: 2015Publisher: Shiloh Run PressSally Golding is desperate to leave St. Louis. She has been living with a preacher and his wife after the untimely death of her abusive husband. She was unable to make ends meet on her own and was forced to accept the charity of the preacher. However, she didn’t bargain on becoming a veritable slave, doing all the housework, mending and such for no pay and constantly criticized by the preacher [...]

    23. Normally I'm not fond of stories that have the romance borne out of deception. But I confess, I happened upon this audiobook on clearance, so figured I'd give it a try anyway. In this instance, the deception is a rancher, suspected of a murder he did not commit, finds himself on the run and then taking on his brother's identity when he finds that brother dead on his own ranch. The matter becomes much more complicated when he learns the brother has a mail-order-bride on the way.My dislike for suc [...]

    24. What a wonderful story!The author weaves the story of a mail-order bride who arrives in Beaumont, Texas to find not all is as she has been lead to believe. Sally Golding's first marriage was very difficult for her. Being a widow was also difficult, but she had an escape plan and that was Mark Paynter. That makes her not sound very nice, but she is a very genuine character. By marrying Mark she would be closer to her parents and if this marriage turned out to be less than desirable.Johnny Paynter [...]

    25. I received this book in a First Reads giveaway.This is a sweet, clean, Christian historical western romance and I enjoyed it immensely.Johnny Paynter is working on the range in Colorado when a co-worker rides up and tells Johnny that the foreman has been killed and they are saying that Johnny did it. Cam convinces Johnny that the only way to avoid a hanging is to get out of the area and lay low until they figure out who killed the foreman. Johnny's brother Mark has a ranch in Texas, so Cam and [...]
