REVIEW: Gingham Mountain by Mary Connealy

gingham_mountain_coneallyBook Description: (from
All aboard for a delightful, suspense-filled romance, where a Texan is torn between his attraction to a meddlesome schoolmarm and the charms of a designing dressmaker. When Hannah Cartwright meets Grant, she’s determined to keep him from committing her orphans to hard labor on his ranch. How far will she go to ensure their welfare? Grant is determined to provide a home for the two kids brought in by the orphan train. Can he keep his ragtag family together while steering clear of love and marriage?

My Review:

Mary Connealy’s books are always a wild, raucous ride… and her characters make their way into your heart. When the book is finished, you feel worn out, but also sad that you have to say goodbye to those you’ve “met”. 😛

I loved meeting Hannah and Grant and the gang of Sour Springs, Texas. Ms. Connealy writes well, and her stories really draw you in and make you care about what’s going to happen to the characters. While some parts of the story felt a bit rushed or contrived, I still felt that this was a great book, overall, and I had a hard time putting it down. Recommended! 😀

(This is book 3 in the “Lassoed in Texas” series)

  1. I finished this book the afternoon as well. I think that if I would have read the first two books, those characters would not have been a distraction to me in this story. Overall I liked it.

  2. Having read book 2 certainly helped in certain parts in the story, but I don’t think it’s entirely necessary… just be prepared to go, “Who’s that?” LOL

    I read book 2 (“Calico Canyon”) last year without having had read book 1 (“Petticoat Ranch”), and I was a smidge lost in some parts, but it didn’t really take away from my overall enjoyment of the book. So I think you could still read this one. It might spoil a bit of the other (previous) books, though. Keep that in mind.
