Stuck Together by Mary Connealy
Vince Yates, the unsalaried sheriff of Broken Wheel, TX has a lot of things going on in his life. His friend Jonas’ sister Tina is catching his eye but he also has his mother and his sister to watch out for and his mother isn’t tracking most of the time so she needs a lot of care. Tina is busy picketing the local saloon, cooking for the local café and helping with Vince’s mother. Throw in some outlaws and all Vince’s friends and there is some excitement going on.
Let me qualify what I am about to say about this book with the statement that I love ANYTHING Mary Connealy writes. She is one of my favorite authors because of the humor she puts into all her historical romances. She keeps me laughing. But this book maybe not quite so much. In the cartoons, you know how you just keep wondering how Wylie Coyote and Elmer Fudd can be so dumb 100% of the time? Well both Vince and Tina’s thought processes strained my credulity to the max – Tina more than Vince, but both were a tad illogical most of the time. I like the smart women heroines, the tough-as-nails women heroines and the hard-working women heroines, but I’m not much for the clueless and I felt that way about Tina throughout this whole book. There didn’t seem to be much to her except faulty logic and blonde curls.
Having said all that, I was happy to have the next installment in the series and I can’t wait to see what Mary Connealy will come up with next.
I received this book free of charge from Bethany House for review. I am not receiving any compensation and this review is solely my own opinions.
