I fell in love with the residents of Broken Spur some time ago, so I was delighted to discover that "Runaway..." picked up
one of the threads from two other series that I read and gave closure to some of the characters that I encountered earlier.
But the great thing about Connealy is that she doesn't leave her readers hanging...wondering! Even if you haven't read
the Kincaid series, or the "Trouble in Texas" series, you will enjoy "Runaway..." because Connealy skillfully weaves
necessary background info from the other books into this one. And then, when I got to the end of this book about the rise of
Broken Spur, Texas, I discovered that there is another "--Spur-line" [if you will allow the pun!] that I will read with anticipation and joy!
I just can't get enough of Mary Connealy's books! She makes me laugh, makes me cringe and invariably gives substance to hope.
Keep those wonderful books coming, Mary!!
The hero, Big John Connealy, oh I mean, Conroy, who was always John Wayne to me in the other books, is a classic Texas Ranger hero. He comes from small town Texas, in Palo Duro, to big city Houston in order to rescue the heroine from a terrible forced marriage. He is doing this as a favor to the intended bride's sister.
Of course, there is lots of action. Mary Connealy likes to blow things up and shoot people in her fiction, usually without killing them, just to add spice to the comedy. Connealy's voice is a little like Janet Evanovich's voice when writing about her Stephanie Plum character. It takes a little getting used to but once you 'get it', it's more fun a monkey with lots of barrels.
I must say there are more named characters in this short work than you'll usually find in several long novels. That's because this work is like a homecoming treat for all of seven books! (I'm including the "Band of Brothers" book which only the illuminati know about!)
In short, "Runaway Bride" is a celebration for the fans of these others books. All the characters, and their now many children, wanted to get involved. If this is the first Connealy book you've read, it may seem like attending the wrong family reunion where you don't know anybody.
I suggest readers new to Mary Connealy read her, "The Boden Birthright," which is now a free Kindle book and which requires no knowledge of any of the other great novels the author has written.
Five stars for Connealy fans!
Loved every minute of it and I think you will, too.
