Tried & True By Mary Connealy (Book Review)

Product Details

Saddle up for a wildly fun ride with the Wilde sisters!

Kylie Wilde is the youngest sister–and the most civilized. Her older sisters might be happy dressing in trousers and posing as men, but Kylie has grown her hair long and wears skirts every chance she gets. It’s a risk–they are homesteading using the special exemptions they earned serving in the Civil War as “boys”–but Kylie plans to make the most of the years before she can sell her property and return to the luxuries of life back East.

Local land agent Aaron Masterson is fascinated with Kylie from the moment her long hair falls from her cap. But now that he knows her secret, can he in good conscience defraud the U.S. government? And when someone tries to force Kylie off her land, does he have any hope of convincing her that marrying him and settling on the frontier is the better option for her future?

My review:

I really enjoyed this book. It was a great story that really peaked my interest from the beginning. Mary crafted great characters and made me truly hope for a happy ending. I was drawn in by the trials and tribulations of the main character and her ending was satisfying, yet left you hoping to know more about the other characters, which is good since this is book one of the series.

Mary is a talented writer and she writes down to earth believable fiction. I would give this book a five star rating and would recommend it to all romance readers and historical romance readers in particular.

Bethany House sent me this book in exchange for a review on my blog.
