Stuck Together by Mary Connealy
Publisher: Bethany House
Series: Trouble in Texas(Book 3)
Goodreads Summary: Tina Cahill, newly arrived from the East, is determined to get the saloon in Broken Wheel, Texas, closed for good. To that end, she pickets outside the place every afternoon. Unfortunately, so far no one has paid any attention.
Vince Yates earned the nickname “Invincible Vince” because of his reputation for letting absolutely nothing stop him. Not his tyrant of a father. Nor the injuries he suffered in the Civil War. Nor the fact that he is Broken Wheel’s only attorney and sheriff yet has no law degree.
But Vince is about to face his biggest challenge yet: his past has just caught up with him. His father, mother, and the sister he didn’t know he had show up in Broken Wheel without warning. His father is still a schemer. His mother is suffering signs of dementia. And his surprise sister immediately falls for one of Vince’s best friends. Vince has a lot of people to take care of, and Tina doesn’t approve of how he’s handling any of them. But with almost all the other men in town married off, Vince finds himself stuck with feisty Tina over and over again. Of course, Tina is the prettiest woman he’s ever seen, so if he could just get her to give up her causes, he might go ahead and propose. But he’s got one more surprise coming his way: Tina’s picketing at the saloon has revealed a dark secret that could put everyone Vince loves in danger.
Book three is the last book in this series. I was a little surprised as I thought there would be four books since there was four male friends but this book though focusing on Vince also tells Jonas’s, Tina’s brothers outcome.
What I liked: This was a fun book. Being the third book in the series the characters are well established and made it easier for me to keep up with what everyone was doing. I struggled in the first book because I could not keep everyone straight. I really liked the plot and how Vince’s family came to town and turned everything upside down. The suspense was also good and made this a very good read.
What I did not like: The only thing that bothered me was that this was the last book and that instead of Jonas getting his own book he ended up with a side story in this book and I found that disappointing as I was looking forward to his story and feel short-changed a little.
Overall this was a great book and I enjoyed it. I can’t wait to see what the author has planned next. I highly recommend this book, series and author.
Overall this was a great series and I really enjoyed it. I had a little trouble in the first book figuring out who everyone was but this is another win for the author and a great series to read!
