Tried & True by Mary Connealy
Mary Connealy just keeps perfecting her craft! This book is a clear indication that she is learning and growing as an author with every new book she writes.
This is the start of a new trilogy called 'Wild At Heart." The youngest of three sisters that posed as boys and fought in the Civil War, Kylie is the least competent at manly pursuits and the one most desiring to live in her feminine guise. Trying to hold down a homesteaders claim to please her father is no easy task, especially when the land agent, Aaron Masterson, spends no time at all figuring out that she's a female and when other sinister characters are trying to run her off her claim.
I have only one complaint about this book. It was so good that I am having a horrible time waiting till the other two in the series are released and #2 is slated for almost a year from now so #3 will be even farther away. I keep saying I won't read any piece of a trilogy again until all installments are available but I love Mary Connealy's books so much that I just can't resist when one hits the shelves. She is at the top of my list of favorite authors because she keeps me amused through the whole impossible story each time.
Bethany House gave me a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. I love Bethany House and all their authors!
