WRANGLER IN PETTICOATS by Mary Connealy is an amazing inspirational historical romance set in 1882 Montana territory. It is the second in the Sophie’s Daughter’s series but can be read as a stand alone. It is well written with details and depth. It has romance, intrigue, faith, love, mayhem, murder, treachery,humor, sacrifice,finding ones true love, ones self and inner peace. The hero, Logan, is a painter, strong, handsome, a loner, and true to his self. The heroine, Sally, is strong willed, tough, brave, a crack shot with a rifle and determined. While Sally and group of her friends are headed to Montana territory to visit with Sally’s sister, Mandy, they are attacked by three back shooter outlaws. Sally is the only one to survive. The outlaws think she is dead. They also don’t know she is female, because she is dressed as a male. Sally has fallen several feet down a crevice, been shot and is found by Logan, the painter. Logan takes her to his mountain cabin, so his Indian healer/housekeeper can help her. In the process, Logan is fascinated with Sally, her bravery, sense of humor, her need to survive and determined nature. Sally, is fascinated with Logan also, his sense of beauty, his love of nature and painting, his protection of her and his determination to marry her. They fall in love and will figure out how to live together with his love of painting and her love of the land. This is a wonderful story of love, trust, faith and the coming together of two worlds. You will also see characters from the first in Sophie’s Daughters, Mandy, Luther, Buff, Tom, and Mandy’s husband. If you enjoy sweet romance, love, the old west, and triumph you will enjoy this one.
