ABOUT THE BOOK Kevin Hunt is the main focus of this western that is sometimes funny, often mysterious, but always enjoyable! Author Mary Connealy includes fights, ambushes, and unknown villains, but there's also a sweet romance that grows between Kevin and Winona Hawkins, the schoolmarm who finds herself torn between her long-time friend Wyatt and this new guy that's shown up at Bear Claw Pass, Wyoming. Kevin is such a kind character and I found his devotion to his two younger siblings especially endearing. Their mother's death thrust him into the role of father when he was just fifteen, and he's done his very best to provide a home for Molly and Andy! Now, he has to accept that his father had more than one wife and apparently, more than one son!
Braced for Love is a delightful story filled with memorable characters, intriguing suspense, and many laugh-out-loud moments. There's also a strong faith message, and many mentions of prayer, as Kevin, Wyatt, and Falcon Hunt struggle to accept that they are family!
This is the first book in the new series, Brothers in Arms, so I'm 'bracing' myself for more fun and adventure, and the chance to learn more about Wyatt and Falcon. No one does romantic comedy better than Mary Connealy and I definitely recommend Braced for Love to all who enjoy historical Christian fiction!
I received a copy of this book from the publisher. There was no obligation for a positive review.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
