Book Description
Tina Cahill, newly arrived from the East, is determined to get the saloon in Broken Wheel, Texas, 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. Not his tyrant of a father. Nor the injuries he suffered in the Civil War. Nor the fact that he is Broken Wheel's only attorney and sheriff yet has no law degree.

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 suffering signs of dementia. And his surprise sister immediately falls for one of Vince's best friends. Vince has a lot of people to take care of, and Tina doesn't approve of how he's handling any of them. But with almost all the other men in town married off, Vince finds himself stuck with feisty 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 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.
Book Review
THIS. BOOK. WAS. F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S. I have always loved Mary Connealy. I have read more of her books than I can count. Every time she has a new release I order it as soon as I can. She's just so stinkin' awesome. She's the only author that I have read that manages to mix Texas charm, action, romance, and humor in such a way that I just can't put the book down until I finish it. I seriously read it in one sitting. It was that good! Being a Texas girl myself, Mary Connealy's books are always refreshing. I'm not gonna lie, sometimes I get tired of books about the "modern life". Yankees just don't know how bad they really have it. Anyway, Mary Connealy is the bomb dot com (does anyone say that anymore?). This book is the third in the Trouble In Texas series, and I have been looking forward to it for a long time. The first two books in this series were sooooooo good. I think the first one was my favorite. This book wasn't QUITE as good as the other two (by like, a fraction of a millimeter), but I still LOVED it. It's so action packed. There was always something happening. Unless your the type of person that can take a reading break in the middle of a really intense part of the book, you'll probably read it in one sitting too. This book is a mixture of Mary Connealy's signature humor and a newer writing style that I just can't seem to put my finger on. Maybe it was because it wasn't  focused as much on the romance as it was the rest of the plot, which is fine, just different from this author. If you like historical novels, western novels, funny novels, or the South, guess what? You just found your new favorite book! I encourage you to read this book, and any others by this author that has been published in the last couple of years. You'll love them! Pinky promise!
