Tried and True

Connealy, Mary. Tried and True: Wild at Heart- Book 1. Bloomington, MN: Bethany House Publishers. 2014.

SUMMARY:
cowboyTired of living as a man, Kylie Wilde dreams of being a true woman (elegant dresses and all). Though she earned her exemption as a “boy” in the Civil War, she cannot wait to sell her land to move out East as a lady…until land agent Aaron Masterson discovers her secret…

A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Stetsons, horses and cowboys…the makings of a fun story! Three sisters homesteading in the West provide an entertaining notion for a book which reads quickly, easily and wildly. With a bit of a mystery and quite the romance brewing, Tried and True is a playful read which includes a piece of history in the exemption offered to men of the Civil War in homesteading (each year served in the War counted as a year off the five-year land period). As a fan of Mary Connealy’s humorous writing, I was not disappointed in this novel and already am looking forward to her next ones in the Wild at Heart series. Ride em’ cowboy (er, cowgirl)!

RATING:
4.5 (out of 5) pennies
