Book Review: Wrangler in Petticoats

Who would have thought a gun toting, fast draw female and a paint slinger artist would make such a great story?
The story barrels out with an immediate cliffhanger-literally- as Sally dangles for her life. And as she tumbles into Logan’s life, neither will ever be the same.
I loved the interaction between characters. Their internal monologue filled with snarky quips and punctuated dialogue. The pace of the novel is quick and to the point. Both of Sally’s and Logan’s obsessions with their chosen professions grate on each other’s nerves and occasionally on that of the reader, but as I came to understand the characters, I also had a deeper appreciation for them. And no character is perfect so to see one grow stronger while the other experienced a moment of weakness delves into the strength of their development.
But my favorite part was the subplot. Mandy and her husband Sydney, I really can’t wait until her story is completely unearthed. And the depth of these subplots! Each subplot was its own story that seamlessly interested to weave a tapestry of a story that makes me so very eager for the next novel. Page turning moments through the entire book, but quickly escalated at the very end. There was no putting this book down during the last 50 pages!
I would definitely say that WRANGLER IN PETTICOATS in Mary Connealy’s best!


  1. Thanks, Casey. I'm so glad you enjoyed the book. Thanks for taking the time to write about it. YAY!

  2. I very much enjoyed "Doctor in Petticoats" which was the first book I've read by Mary Connealy. I am looking forward to reading "Wrangler in Petticoats" and more books by Mary. I loved the humor in the book but also the strong Christian message (without being preachy).

  3. @Mary, thanks so much for stopping by!! I need to get a thank you note to you, it was such a fun book to read!

    @Pam, I loved that one too!! I gave both books 5 stars and I agree, Christian without being preachy. She does it well. *grin*
