Marshalling Her Heart (Wyoming Sunrise #3) by Mary Connealy [Review & Giveaway]

My thoughts:  The conclusion of Mary Connealy's Wyoming Sunrise series wraps up the three young women's friendship and growth into young adulthood. Each of the three ladies, Nell, Mariah, and Becky come from different backgrounds and have different talents. They have a strong friendship and support each other in the wild, untamed state of Wyoming.

In 1871, Wyoming was a forward thinking, progressive state even though it was not industrialized or densely populated. The small town in which the three sisters live has had a serious amount of stage coach robberies and murders that are unsettling to this area.

In "Marshaling Her Heart" U.S. Marshals come into the area to try to put an end to the robberies and murders. During this time, a scheduled visit by a famous woman's suffrage leader, a woman no less, is about to happen. 

Becky has her own ranch and her father has his. He is a cruel, ruthless man that seriously has no love for his daughter. He puts her in harms way. 

As the story progresses we find that each of the three young women have found suitable men to love, settled down into normalized lives with, and yes, the marshals have a part in making life in the area just great.

As usual, a book by Mary Connealy is a winner. This series was a fun read that had some interesting history tucked in along with a nice measure of fun and humor.

About the book: Becky Pruitt has always prided herself on knowing everything that's happening on her successful ranch, which makes her foreman Nate Paxton's admission to her quite a surprise. With the notorious Deadeye Gang on the loose, Nate--a former U.S. Marshal--believes that Becky's ranch might be the best spot for a group of Marshals to use as a base and hideout.

The timing couldn't be more crucial for the growing town of Pine Valley, and Becky feels a commitment to help. But after escaping the grasp of her harsh father, she's never liked giving up control--of her life or her ranch. Again and again, Nate's proven himself to her and she soon realizes that if there's anyone she can trust with her ranch--and her heart--it might be him.

But the outlaws won't go quietly, and as danger draws ever nearer, Becky and Nate are faced with impossible choices that will test their growing bond.

This rousing conclusion to Mary Connealy's Wyoming Sunrise series is an exhilarating blend of humor, romance, and adventure.

    1. I think they are all good stand alone books but they might be a little more fun in order. All three heroines appear in all three books.

  3. I'd love to read The Laws of Attraction, too!
