Shoot like a Girl 
depicts the historically fictive tale of a young Annie Oakley's

poorhouse where she learns to cook, sew, and keep house for other 
families to help her mother make ends meet. Annie ends up at the 
McCrimmons, a couple whom she comes to refer to as "the wolves." Cruel 
and neglectful, the McCrimmons push Annie to the brink of despair. The 
only bright spot in her dreary existence is Buck, a beautiful 
buckskinned horse, and the two form a bond. Despite her resolve to help 
her family, Annie loses hope of ever seeing them again, as life at the 
McCrimmons' becomes more oppressive, and she is cut off from all outside
communication. Physically and emotionally weak from illness, hunger, 
and abuse, Annie resigns herself to a life of servitude to the abusive 
couple. But, when Mr. McCrimmon's continued cruelty to Buck finally 
threatens the horse's life, Annie takes matters into her own hands and 
formulates a plan for escape.

as a plucky, amateur sleuth. Fifteen-year-old Annie Oakley is the sole 
supporter of her widowed mother and two younger siblings. An expert 
markswoman and independent spirit, she hunts game to sell to the local 
mercantile to make ends meet instead of accepting a marriage proposal 
that could solve all her problems, including the impending foreclosure 
of her family's farm. After a stunning performance in a shooting contest
against famous sharpshooter Frank Butler, Annie is offered a position 
in the renowned Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show. Finally, she has a chance
to save her family's farm--and make her dreams come true. But after her
catapult to fame, a series of crimes takes place in the Wild West Show,
including the death of Annie's Indian Assistant. The coroner claims the
death was due to natural causes, but Annie is unconvinced. Then her 
prized horse, Buck--a major part of her act--is stolen, and she realizes
that someone is out to get her. With the help of a sassy, blue-blooded 
reporter, Annie sets out to find her horse, solve the crimes, and clear 
her good name--before everything she's worked for is destroyed.

In this second book in

sleuth. It's 1887, and Annie and Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show are 
invited to Queen Victoria's Jubilee celebration in London, England. But 
their long journey across the Atlantic takes a turn for the worst when 
the queen's royal servant ends up dead and Annie's husband, Frank 
Butler, falls suspiciously ill. Annie soon discovers that the two events
are connected--and may be precursors to an assassination attempt on the
queen. In London, it becomes clear that there is rampant unrest in the 
queen's kingdom--the Irish Fenian Brotherhood, as well as embittered 
English subjects, are teeming in the streets. But amid the chaos, even 
while she prepares for the show, Annie is determined to find the truth. 
With the help of a friend and reporter, Emma Wilson, the renowned poet 
Oscar Wilde, and the famous socialite Lily Langtry, Annie sets out to 
hunt down the queen's enemies--and find out why they want to kill 
England's most beloved monarch.
