As with all of Mary Connealy's books I've read, Doctor in Petticoats is a fast-moving entertaining story featuring a talented, strong, independent heroine that knows how to survive in the rugged, wild west. But Beth is so much more; she is sensitive, tender and compassionate able to understand Alex's grueling past and how she can help in his times of need. Doctor in Petticoats will touch each emotion by mixing humor...with subtle inspiration, throwing in other strong yet caring characters to give the reader a story hard to put down and wanting more when you come to the end. Lucky for us there are at least two more books in the series! (Trudy Once Upon A Romance )
Mary Connealy is a wonderful writer, and the thoughts that run through her characters minds are always intriguing and good for a few chuckles. She is a great storyteller. Her books just keep getting better and better. (Susan Milby Loves 2 Read)
I knew I shouldn't have started this! I picked it up to while away an hour and then got frustrated when I only had an hour! Then I stayed up too late reading and couldn''t let it go until I was finished. I laughed the whole way through the book - I was laughing out loud before I was finished the second page!

First off, I have loved every book that Mary Connealy has written that I have read so far. I loved this one from the first page and I loved even more how some of the characters in this book are from her other series called, Montana Marriages, but you do not have to read that series first to get the whole story. Mary Connealy is definitely an author that writes books that you just can't put down. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series. (Tammy Graham Love My 2 Dogs)
This was such a fast paced story that I didn''t put it down, reading it in one sitting. I loved the character of Beth she is a self assured lady who also has a quick wit. I found myself laughing out loud on several occasions. I also enjoyed how the book bounces back and forth between the sisters. When Mandy realizes her marriage is a mistake, she feels like she has to honor her wedding vows and stick it out. If you're a fan of fast paced, historical Christian fiction then you are going to love this book. This was my first time reading anything by Mary Connealy and she now has a new fan in me. I am anxious to read the next book in the series. (Brenda Castro WV Stitcher)
