Tried & True by Mary Connealy

I'm sitting in for Joy Avery Melville while she's away at the ACFW Conference in St. Louis, MO this week. I had the delightful pleasure of reading Mary Connealy's new book.

Kylie Wilde likes being feminine, wearing dresses, sporting long hair, and enjoying the finer things in life, much to the chagrin of her older sisters. They've fought in the Civil War posing as men and now have claimed land with their soldier exemptions posing as men too. Except Kylie is tired of wearing britches.

Land agent, Aaron Masterson, checks to make sure that claim owners are obeying the requirements of the law. He refuses to look the other way when he learns of Kylie's deception. He's tempted to turn her in but feels the need to protect her when someone is trying to force her off her land.

Mary Connealy has a knack of bringing together a strong hero and heroine with plenty of struggles and laughter in between their clashes. I look forward to reading the story of each of the Wilde sisters.

This book was provided for review by Bethany House Publishers, 2014.
