Stuck Together

I won't be putting this little note in my review on the retail sites, but I wanted you let you, as my blog readers, know what happened with this book. A couple of weeks ago we had a house fire. Unfortunately I was about 3/4 of the way through this book and the only thing that survived was a portion of the cover. I was enjoying the book and also knew that Bethany House was expecting a review from me. So I was pretty upset when I found that piece of the cover while sifting through the ashes. I emailed Bethany House as soon as I returned to the hotel room. They quickly responded and told me that they had marked the book as already reviewed so I didn't have to worry about it while I was dealing with my house. But they sent me another copy just to read. Bethany House is awesome!!!
So even though I didn't have to, I like this author and I wanted to write this review as a thank you to Bethany House.

Stuck Together
Trouble in Texas Book 3
Mary Conneally
Tina joined her brother in Broken Wheel after her aunt kicked her out. She barely knows him, but he's the only family she has. Her mission field is to picket the local saloon. But her picketing days are soon numbered when more trouble than just a glass of whiskey rolls into town.

Vince has a grudging respect for Tina, but is sure that he can never marry. His mother is crazy and his father is cruel. So he admires her and finds ways to spend time with her, but refuses to marry her. Escaped prisoners, drunk cowboys, and an elderly lady with dementia add to the chaos and craziness that make up Broken Wheel, Texas.

I've enjoyed the other two books in this series so it was no surprise that this one was so fun to read. Since I've read the other books I knew who all of the characters were and enjoyed reading more about them. I probably wouldn't recommend this book as a stand-alone, because of the characters from previous books. The characters are comical, caring, and realistic. The author did a great job of keeping my attention and interest through the entire book. The sense of family between the men who weren't brothers was heartwarming. I was disappointed when everything wrapped up at the end. I was really hoping this series would continue for a while. I'll definitely be keeping my eyes open for her next book.

I received this book free of charge from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
