Calico Canyon by Mary Connealy
This book is a rollicking good time, one hilarious, suspenseful page after another. Don’t miss this romantic comedy by the author of Petticoat Ranch.
Grace Calhoun is the prim and proper school teacher whose life is made a living torture by Daniel Reeves’ five boys—ten-year-old twins and five-year-old triplets whose mother died giving birth to the triplets. Daniel is right proud of his boys and doesn’t take to the new school teacher complaining about them and trying to nag him into making girls out of them. In fact, he ends up getting Grace fired. But it doesn’t matter, because the day Grace gets fired is the day her past catches up with her. Someone is after her and he’s ready for the ultimate revenge.
I felt for poor Grace, getting trapped in the Canyon with Daniel and his unruly boys all winter. But she ended up holding her own. It was Daniel who was in for a miserable time! This book was so good, I’m keeping it to read again later. So funny and realistic at the same time. I highly recommend it.
