AIMING FOR LOVE by Mary Connealy

My thoughts:  It is always a pleasure to read one of Mary Connealy's books. She fills them with light hearted, often funny, moments. She brings well-blended faith into the story as the characters share their faith or simply live out their faith.

In Aiming for Love, the three sisters who have lived the majority of their lives cut off from the world, perched atop a range of mountains, freely roaming, and foraging off the land for their existence. They, too, are people of faith - even though their's is a bit skewed because it is passed down word-of-mouth since they are unable to read the Bible for themselves.

There is a nice blend of bad men, cowboys, and general personality conflicts that lend to exciting outcomes. The tender romance that buds when a very innocent, sheltered young lady encounters Dave, a cowboy, is simply lovely.

I love Mary's books and am truly looking forward to reading this entire series. I am thinking perhaps each of the three sisters will have a delightful story.

I highly recommend.

About the book: Josephine Nordegren is one of three sisters who grew up nearly wild in southwestern Colorado. She has the archery skills of Robin Hood and the curiosity of the Little Mermaid, fascinated by but locked away from the forbidden outside world--a world she's been raised to believe killed her parents. When David Warden, a rancher, brings in a herd much too close to the girls' secret home, her older sister especially is frightened, but Jo is too interested to stay away.

David's parents follow soon on his heels, escaping bandits at their ranch. David's father is wounded and needs shelter. Josephine and her sisters have the only cabin on the mountain. Do they risk stepping into the world to help those in need? Or do they remain separated but safe in the peaks of Hope Mountain?

About the author: Mary Connealy writes "romantic comedies with cowboys" and is celebrated for her fun, zany, action-packed style. She has more than half a million books in print. She is the author of the popular series Wild at Heart, Kincaid Brides, Trouble in Texas, Lassoed in Texas, Sophie's Daughters, and many other books.
