Doctor in Petticoats by Mary Connealy


In the wake of a stagecoach accident, doctor Alex Buchanan and nurse Beth McClellan discover that they're both skilled healers who work well together. Other than that, they have nothing in common! She's an idealist and he's a jaded army deserter fleeing a bounty hunter. Surely their alliance ends here . . . or does it?

My take:~

Mary Connealy always serves up an appealing story, where love and laughs abound. Sophie's Daughters is her newest series centered on the lives of the young daughters of her lead character in a previous novel, Petticoat Ranch. You will not find wilting wallflowers in Mary's stories, and Beth McLennan epitomises a Connealy heroine, feisty, independent and disdainful of most men. Enter a dirty, slightly crazed, army deserter and there is plenty of fodder for fun and emotional conflict and even a serious twist with a look at post traumatic stress disorder before it even had a name. Doctor in Petticoats is sure to add spunk and colour to your day!

I've only read some of Mary's "Heartsongs Presents" books which I thoroughly enjoyed. Will look forward to reading this one too!

Oooh. I'm in the process of deciding whether or not to purchase a kindle ereader (having just come back from an overseas trip during which I bought 4 books in addition to the one big fat one I packed thinking it would keep me going for the whole trip). This book is available in kindle edition... should I use that as an item for my 'pros' list? :) LOL said...
