Mary Connealy's Montana Rose
Christy Award finalist, Mary Connealy has crafted yet another fun, funny, touching book. Her heroine is a sweet, dutiful wife who suppresses all her anger and frustration until the day of her husband’s funeral. She unleashes all that anger on the gravedigger. But when some rough men, living in a rough environment, decide Cassie has to choose a new husband immediately, this same gravedigger may be her only hope.
Red Dawson is a simple, hard-working man, so he isn’t interested in marrying a woman who’s used to wearing silk and has been sheltered from hard work. But if he doesn’t step in, the poor little thing is going to end up in a terrible situation. Maybe God does want him to help her.
I enjoyed this book immensely. I especially liked the hero, a man who was very sweet but realistic at the same time—that’s some amazingly good writing! I highly recommend this book, and I can’t wait for the next book in the series, to see what happens to Cassie’s friend, Belle. If you haven’t read any of Mary’s books, read this one and you’ll be hooked like I am!
Mary Connealy also just got the nod for FOUR of her books in the ACFW Book of The Year Contest! WOW!
