All aboard! Next stop - Texas, where love derails the best-laid plans of a reluctant rancher, a meddlesome schoolmarm, and two children on an orphan train.
Mary Connealy writes romantic comedy with cowboys. She is a Christy Award finalist and a Carol Award winner. She is the author of the Lassoed in Texas Trilogy, the Montana Marriage Trilogy, and the Sophie's Daughters Series.
Mary lives on a Nebraska ranch with her husband, Ivan, and has four grown daughters: Joslyn (married to Matt), Wendy, Shelly (married to Aaron), and Katy. And she is the grandmother of two beautiful grandchildren.
Set in 1870, this is a fast-paced, heartwarming story filled with humor and romance. There’s even a bit a mystery woven in, for Shirt Lady isn’t who or what she pretends to be. The only drawback is the occasional intrusion of characters from an earlier story in the “Lassoed in Texas” series, but Connealy eventually ties them into the main story. A delightful, entertaining book you’ll want to read again and again.
4 AND 1/2 STARS! The next installment in Connealy's Lassoed in Texas series is a delight. It's filled with joy, love, tenderness, a lot of laughter and characters who grow in their faith. Readers will be happily reunited with some of the characters from Petticoat Ranch, the first book in the series.
