About the Book:
Ride into the Rockies where love peaks between a tough Texas tomboy and a passionate artist. On her way to Montana, Sally McClellan’s party is attacked and robbed. But then artist Logan McKenzie saves the badly wounded cowgirl who has been left for dead. Can this landscape painter tame the tomboy without breaking her spirit? Sally doesn’t know much about ribbons and lace, but Logan’s presence makes her want to connect with her feminine side. Will this fractured female discover a way to capture the artist’s love—or find herself captured and killed by outlaws?
About the Author:
Mary Connealy is an author, journalist, and teacher. She lives on a Nebraska farm with her husband, Ivan, and has four mostly grown daughters. If you hunt hard enough, you can find Mary on the Internet like a middle-aged, female “Where’s Waldo” at www.maryconnealy.com .
How can anyone possibly go wrong with reading Mary Connealy books? It would be baffling to think that someone WOULDN’T like her amazing, funny, sweet and lovable books! From the laughter, to sweet cowboys, to a touch of suspense in each one, her books are GLOURIOUSLY WOWmazing. And, each new addition to her series collections seem to get better and better with each one.
I loved the characters in this book even more than the ones in Doctors in Petticoats (though we saw Sarah in that one as well,as a secondary character). Sweet Sarah’s character instantly worked her way into my heart and became like a sister to me. Her steadfast faith in God, even in a time of terrible circumstances, was amazing and was a shining point in this book. Her easy going, wrangling nature was easy to love, even while she was injured after the terrible attack. The only downside to Sarah is, that she doesn’t have a lot of womanly ways about her….she’s too busy trying to be rough and tough on the outside to please her pa so he’ll still love her, while on the inside…well, on the inside, she simply wants to wear some frills.
So, what happens when Sarah meets warm-hearted, God-fearing Logan, who’s come to her rescue? Now that Logan….whewee! THAT is one awesome cowboy who I’d like to come to my rescue…not that I need rescuing or anything. Just saying. Mary really knows how to create them God loving, ruggedly gorgeous looking family men. His tenderness and love for God out did some of the other characters in this book. In a good way, of course.
So, once more, I sing the highest of 5 star praises for this funny, charming God filled addition to Sophie’s Daughters. With just a touch of mystery to give it twists, Connealy’s cowboys, laughter and Western country are the perfect themes to her perfect books and meant for every book lover’s shelves! I can’t WAIT to read Sharpshooter in Petticoats, book 3 in this laugh out loud series.
