Stuck Together: A Book Review

About The Book:

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.

My Review:

The Trouble In Texas series by author Mary Connealy has been such a treat for me to read over the last year, and I was estatic when I found out book three, Stuck Together was available to review. I was not disappointed!

Tina and Vince were fantastic as the main characters in this final book of Connealy's series. It was great to see how well they developed in this fast-paced book that kept me up late reading on several nights. While most of the time with a series I say that books can stand alone well, that is not the case here. It would be ideal if the first two books were read first, to eliminate  confusion. I loved the underlying theme of overcoming our past in order to appreciate our future and not lose out on something, or someone, that God has meant for us. A message that all of us can appreciate. I love the style of writing that Mary Connealy uses, as she made me visualize each scene and I felt that I was experiencing exactly what the characters did.

I can't wait to see what is next for this author, and I will for sure be going back and reading other books from her!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
