Mandy Gray is in a heap of trouble. With a band of murderous outlaws out for her hide, three young children to keep safe, and a castle-turned-prison, there’s not much else she can do but keep her rifle close by and hope for the best.
Until Tom Linscott decides to take what’s rightfully his. Or what he deems rightfully his.
For five years, he’s admired Mandy Gray from a distance – a greater distance than he’d have liked, and now that her sorry husband’s gone and gotten himself killed, Tom’s on the move. For Mandy. And he’s not takin’ NO for an answer – even if she’s the best sharpshooter on this side of the Mississippi. Problem is – can he win over her affections before she can get a chance kill him?
Well the Cooter clan aren’t going to make life easy for Mandy or anyone who loves her, which includes a wild array of characters from Mary Connealy’s other novels. And Mandy has a long way to go before she can trust in love…or herself. Will she open her heart for a second chance at love, or will she open up gunfire on the man whose willing to risk his life for her? Can she do both? 🙂
There’s only one way to find out.
If you’re in the mood for a sweet little romance that will provide only a slight pulse change and perhaps a sigh or two – DON’T READ THIS BOOK!!!
But if you want to laugh at perfectly placed male-female repartee, cringe at life-threatening close calls, up the pulse rate with adventure, and enjoy some sigh-worthy romance… then get to your nearest bookstore as quick as a trigger and BUY Sharpshooter in Petticoats by Mary Connealy.
It’s a full cast of characters and an amazing passel of kids, all heaped together in a story that will leave you with a smile on your face and a longing in your heart for just ONE MORE PAGE!!
Mary, I’m determined to get on some sort of reading list so someone will just deliver your books to my door on a regular basis. I think I’m keeping Lifeway in business, buying all your books.
Thanks for the wonderful adventure.
And let me just say that this book is one of the BEST beginnings I think you’ve written since Petticoat Ranch. It was so vibrant, funny, and unpredictable – I was enthralled and amazed, in between laughing out loud 🙂
Coming in 2011 – Deep Trouble and Out of Control
I’m sure there are more, but I’m not privy to those yet. Maybe Mary will stop by and share what’s up next on the wild frontiers of the Connealy imagination 🙂
