From the Back Cover
When a lawman who values order gets stuck with a feisty crusader who likes to stir things up, there's going to be trouble in Texas!
Now that she's settled in town, Tina Cahill is determined to get Broken Wheel's saloon closed for good. To that end, she pickets outside the place every afternoon. Unfortunately, so far no one has paid any attention.
Vince Yates earned the nickname "Invincible Vince" because of his reputation for letting absolutely nothing stop him. But Vince is about to face his biggest challenge yet: his past has just caught up with him. His father, mother, and the sister he didn't know he had show up in Broken Wheel without warning. His father is still a schemer. His mother is showing signs of dementia. And his surprise sister quickly falls for one of Vince's best friends. Vince suddenly has a lot of people depending on him, and Tina doesn't approve of how he's handling any of them.
With nearly every other man in town married off, Vince finds himself stuck with strong-willed Tina over and over again. Of course, Tina is the prettiest woman he's ever seen, so if he could just get her to give up her crazy causes, he might go ahead and propose. But he's got one more surprise coming his way: Tina's picketing at the saloon has revealed a dark secret that could put everyone Vince loves in danger.
"Connealy's storytelling is laced with humor and wit and coupled with a solid plot. All this makes this sweet inspirational story very entertaining." -RT Book Reviews

This book is so packed with action that frankly it started from the first line and went on right until the final sentence it seems. Oh sure it is a historical romance story but really I would have to say that the action almost equals or surpasses the romance in how it grabbed this readers attention. Laughter is abundant yet once again with Ms. Connealy's wonderful story telling, and again this started from the get go and was mixed into the action with perfection. Now this book can stand as a stand alone book but personally I think that it was enhanced a great deal by reading the rest of the series, including Ms. Connealy's story “Closer Than Brothers” that can be found at [...] . That story alone gives a lot of information about how the 'Band of Brothers' came about that is for sure.
Here is Vince's story and I have to say that I actually felt bad for the guy for it seemed like everything that could go wrong for him was going wrong right on top of each other and over lapping too boot. To see 'Invincible Vince' actually have some weaknesses was a endearment to me, even though I already liked the guy from the get go, this story just ramped that up to where I have to say I think Vince Yates is about my favorite character in the whole series. The way he handled himself and everything going on around him, where his top priorities where and where his loyalty rested made him into 'Invincible Vince' at least in this readers eyes even when his flaws and weaknesses showed clearly.
Then there is little Tina Cahill who has been part of the group longer than she realizes, and wow her story is heartbreaking, but man she has spunk that is for sure. It is a bit surprising to see her back story but at the same time it makes perfect sense in the way she acts. I was a little disappointed to not see a resolution to her feelings in one aspect but in another I dont think it would have worked with the character as she was so I am okay with how it all worked out.
The second romance that blooms seemed a little fast but then again frankly in Broken Wheel it is surprising that Tina remained single for as long as she did. I am not disappointed for the best friend that got involved with Vince's surprise sister really needed his own love as well but I would have loved to see that romance develop in its own story.
Over all this is a book that I enjoyed from the minute I picked up (which I had to wait until I knew I could read it without interruption so that wasn’t until late afternoon and frankly it was hard knowing that I had it but had to wait to read it) and was disappointed to put it down. I wasn't disappointed in the ending in the least bit but disappointed that another wonderful book and series came to a close. Then again I wonder if we wont see them again somewhere else??
Tina Cahill, the last unmarried girl in Broken Wheel, spends her spare time pacing outside the saloon whilst hoisting placards sermonizing on the evils of alcohol. When Tina gets embroiled in a fight with its patrons out in the street, Sheriff Vince Yates knows she’s more trouble than what she’s worth. But that doesn’t stop him from developing some mighty strong feelings for her. However, with a tyrant for a father, and a mother addled in her mind, he refuses to foist those bad genes upon his future wife. And so ‘Vince the Invincible’ continues to fetter his emotions, which is not easy considering he continues to get stuck together with Tina! Vince’s life is turned upside down by his parent’s sudden arrival in Broken Wheel, a mad woman in jail, and an Indian uprising to quell… But nothing sets him more on edge than that pretty picketing woman with whom he can’t get out of his mind.
Mary Connealy has delivered an action-packed romance that merges history, humor, and an inspirational thread that encourages the reader to trust in God for their future. This has been an amazing series and the old band of friends from the war, the Regulators of whom Vince was a part of, has snatched a permanent piece of my reading heart! Highly recommended!
After reading all three books I would not recommend this series but I realize from looking at the other reviews that not too many readers share my experience so, to each his own.
Vince has three good friends, who ended up in prison during the war. Together, they watch each other's backs, like three musketeers, only four. Throw in a dandy town in Texas, new occupations for all four men, once they're freed, wild Indians, bad guys, and a kidnapping, and you cannot be bored! There are other surprises in store, but you'll want to read this outstanding book, so I will say no more. Blessings and enjoy! 😊
