Editorial Reviews


Mary Connealy has once again given her readers a great mix of all the things that make a great inspirational romance. Laughter and tears, love and family, God s beauty and mercy as well as an action packed tale makes this story another one that s hard to put down. Sally and Logan are both strong, independent individuals, in their own way. Their differences are as vast as the Wild West yet that s what pulls them together. (Trudy Once Upon A Romance)

I am not sure why I seem surprised. Reading a story from romantic comedian Christian Historical Fiction author Mary Connealy always sends me through a whirl of emotions. Wrangler in Petticoats is another one in a long line of entertaining reads with big messages. Through the pages a reader will be taken into a romance that is full of blushes and shy grins, but also giggles and plain out chuckles. Yet you also get deep conversations on topics of discussion like marriage, family, and true love</div> (Margaret Chind Creative Madness )

How can anyone possibly go wrong with reading Mary Connealy books? It would be baffling to think that someone WOULDN'T like her amazing, funny, sweet and lovable books! From the laughter, to sweet cowboys, to a touch of suspense in each one, her books are GLOURIOUSLY WOWmazing. And, each new addition to her series collections seem to get better and better with each one.So, once more, I sing the highest of 5 star praises for this funny, charming God filled addition to Sophie's Daughters. With just a touch of mystery to give it twists, Connealy's cowboys, laughter and Western country are the perfect themes to her perfect books and meant for every book lover's shelves! I can''t WAIT to read Sharpshooter in Petticoats, book 3 in this laugh out loud series. (Molly Edwards Book Reviews by Molly)

You know, I think I've decided to stop reading Mary Connealy books. I pick it up and then am so enthralled that real life stops and I'm part of the book. I can't eat, I can't sleep, forget the laundry, the kids can make their own dinner.... UGH! Well, maybe I'll quit later--on the next series! (Regina Holt, Hott Books) --Barbour Publishing

Book Description

While trying to reach her sister in Montana, cowgirl Sally McClellan is left for dead in the Rockies and is rescued by artist Logan McKenzie. Will this wild Western wrangler trade her chaps for ribbons and bows to win his heart—or will her happiness be ended by an outlaw’s gun?

I absolutely adore Mary Conneally's books! She is the funniest, most awesome storyteller ever. Her books are so faith based and funny and positively addictive. This offering tells the story of Sally McClellan, another daughter of Sophie and Clay McClellen, whom we first met years ago in "Petticoat Ranch".
She brings back one of the other daughters in this book, too, Mandy McClellan Grey, although the readers gets the impression her story isn't quite finished yet.
Sally is on her way to visit Mandy, who is married to the no account Sidney Grey, to help her out with her 2 children and one on the way. Along the way, members of the party want to take a slight detour to look at the scenery in Yellowstone. They are set upon by dry gulchers, but Sally escapes. The obnoxious and vicious crooks, eager to maintain their method of earning money by killing unsuspecting tourists, figure out someone has escaped and set out the kill Sally.
Sally is rescued by a naturalist painter, Logan, whom she thinks doesn't have a lick of sense because he doesn't have a meaningful job.
The fun only escalates from here.
I am assured that Conneally is wrapping up the 9 books previous with the next offering, 'Sharpshooter in Petticoats' due in January 2011 and I can't wait to read it.
Do not hesitate to buy any of this writer's books. You will not be disappointed.

Recommendation: Read it but not first!

I like Mary Connealy's writing. I really do but I had a hard time with this one. I have read all of the Montana Marriages series, as well as, the Lasso in Texas series. I feel that makes me a capable judge of this new series, Sophie's Daughters. We first meet Sophie's girls in "Petticoat Ranch" and again in "Calico Canyon." This book, the second in the series, mainly focuses on Sally with a good bit of Mandy's problems thrown in. (See my review of "Doctor in Petticoats" for more about Beth and Mandy's life.) You could read this book out of order and not miss much at all. Although, reading "Calico Canyon" will give you a good sense of what Sally has been through in her lifetime and break your heart in the process.

This book was harder for me to get into. I couldn't decide if Sally's rescuer was manly enough for me. Oddly enough, that was one of the same struggles that Sally had! He is an artist so he is sensitive but he has lived in the wilderness long enough to make him strong and independent. Mary Conneally does a great job of addressing the issue of the way we perceive artists and our immediate judgment of them, good or bad. I struggled with my perception of him the entire book but I also think that was the point.

My biggest problem with the book though is the ending. Mary left it wide open for the next book and I hate that. Mainly because I am impatient and I can't stand waiting for the next book in a series! The story lines are wrapped up enough in this book but it is clear that some of the issues were left unresolved on Mandy's side of things. This also means I have read two books with Mandy's problems and am going to have to wait on the third book to find out if she ever truly finds happiness.

Who would have thought a gun toting, fast draw female and a paint slinger artist would make such a great story?
The story barrels out with an immediate cliffhanger-literally- as Sally dangles for her life. And as she tumbles into Logan's life, neither will ever be the same.
I loved the interaction between characters. Their internal monologue filled with snarky quips and punctuated dialogue. The pace of the novel is quick and to the point. Both of Sally's and Logan's obsessions with their chosen professions grate on each other's nerves and occasionally on that of the reader, but as I came to understand the characters, I also had a deeper appreciation for them. And no character is perfect so to see one grow stronger while the other experienced a moment of weakness delves into the strength of their development.
But my favorite part was the subplot. Mandy and her husband Sydney, I really can't wait until her story is completely unearthed. And the depth of these subplots! Each subplot was its own story that seamlessly interested to weave a tapestry of a story that makes me so very eager for the next novel. Page turning moments through the entire book, but quickly escalated at the very end. There was no putting this book down during the last 50 pages!
I would definitely say that WRANGLER IN PETTICOATS in Mary Connealy's best!

There is no doubt in my mind that Mary Connealy is a gifted, creative storyteller. I have enjoyed the plots of all of her books and her style is smooth and easy to follow. She knows how to bring the reader into the story and feel a connection to the characters. The idea of having a rough and tough cowgirl fall in love with an artsy painter makes for a fun, humorous and interesting plotline. The reason I only give this book three stars is because I am a bit irritated with the portrayal in a few of her books and especially this one of what it means to be a strong woman. The author's attempt at making Sally and Mandy look strong and independent often crossed the line into making them look just plain bull-headed, insulting, arrogant and rude. Abby in Wildflower Bride was the same type of character and I didn't like her character either. I lost count of how many times they called those around them idiots, morons or stupid both aloud and in their thoughts. Sally was rescued and nursed back to health by Logan and Wise Sister yet she continually treated Logan with disrespect and rudeness. At one point Sally says to Logan, "You live in the wilderness because you have the manners of a pig?" and I thought that applied more to her than anyone else. Logan saves her life and she constantly insults and degrades him. It was pretty unbelievable to me that he even fell in love with her! Mandy was even worse by continually saying she wanted to bash her husband's head in and praying that God would protect him on the day she really explodes. Would the hero of a story be respected if he had the same thoughts about his wife? How about praying that you won't explode at all and that God would help you love and respect your husband more. I have heard that the next book has a stronger male figure so I am continuing on to finish out the series hoping to see that Mandy has maintained her strong spirit but learned a few manners along the way!
