One of the first reviews that Badlands posts above its blurb says "Outlander meets post-Civil War unrest in the conclusion to Melissa Lenhardt's fast-paced historical series." Not to shatter anyone's bubble or harm their ego but I don't think this a very good way to describe this series. Yes, both have strong women who are more than a damsel in distress, both have medical training and both have to make the best of a new world they've been thrust into. Outlander is strong fantasy with a nice time-travel aspect to it, where as I would classify the Sawbones Series as simply Western Romance. So if you picked up the series looking for time-travel, realize now that it's the strong women and vivid danger that the stories share.
Now that I have all that out of the way, the entire Sawbones Series has been a joy to read and this latest one has been no different. Not only does it continue the story from the first two books, it gives me one of the things I cherish these days, a complete story arc with a great ending. Great story and well placed plot points had me racing through the series and left me well satisfied at the end. Author Melissa Lenhardt doesn't need the Outlander name to carry her series as it is quite strong all on its own.
