A Modern Day Fairy Tale

Faith. Family. Fiction. Fun.

Braced for Love by Mary Connealy {Book Review}

**I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley for consideration. All thoughts are my own. 

Left with little back in Missouri, Kevin Hunt takes his younger siblings on a journey to Wyoming when he receives news that he's inheriting part of a ranch. The catch is that the ranch is also being given to a half brother he never knew existed. Turns out, Kevin's supposedly dead father led a secret and scandalous life.

But danger seems to track Kevin along the way, and he wonders if his half brother, Wyatt, is behind the attacks. Finally arriving at the ranch, everyone is at each other's throats and the only one willing to stand in between is Winona Hawkins, a nearby schoolmarm.

Despite being a long-time friend to Wyatt, Winona can't help but be drawn to the earnest, kind Kevin--and that puts her in the cross hairs of somebody's dangerous plot. Will they all be able to put aside their differences long enough to keep anyone from getting truly hurt?

I don't always reach for cowboy novels... but when I do, books like Braced For Love are exactly what I am hoping for. Great characters meets romance meets humor meets adventure--- all to create one engaging story that fans of cowboy romances are sure to enjoy. (And even those who don't typically enjoy this type of story might just find their minds changed with this one too...)

I have heard good things about Mary Connealy's novels, but I must admit I don't believe I'd had the chance to read any in the past. Now that I see what the hype is about, I certainly look forward to reading more. This was a great place to start, as it is the first book in her new Brothers in Arms series. And what a way to start the series. The characters are well written and you cannot help but be drawn into the adventure of the story. It'll keep you interested right through to the end. My favorite stories tend to have both some mystery and some romance, and this certainly has both too. 

If you enjoy a good cowboy romance, this will definitely be a book/series worth checking out. I cannot wait to see what happens next.
