Gingham Mountain All aboard for a delightful, suspense filled romance, where a Texan is torn between his attraction to a meddlesome schoolmarm and the charms of a designing dressmaker When Hannah Cartwright meets Grant, she s determined to keep him from committing her orphans to hard labor on his ranch How far will she go to ensure their welfare Grant is determined to provide a home for the two kids brought in by the orphan train Can he keep his ragtag family together while steering clear of love and marriage Yeah, this book is dumb The idea is bad, the writing is terrible including several glaring grammatical errors throughout the book and the characterization is awful I got 3 Connealy books from the library and I am returning the other 2 without looking at them I m just not a fan of her writing. A truly enjoyable story about Hannah But I have to be honest and say that my favorite part of the book was at the end where Grace makes an appearance If you have not discovered the Lassoed in Texas

adventure, romance, a little mystery and loads of humor and you have Mary s books Great characters that continue throughout the series and a wonderful setting in 1870 Texas makes Gingham Mountain a real treat We met Hannah briefly in Calico Canyon when her sister Grace ends up marrying Daniel Reeves Hannah is on her way to meet up with Grace when plans change and she is forced to stay in Sour Springs and she becomes the local schoolteacher Of course she has never attended school, and she owns one worn out dress and she doesn t like the way Grant takes to adopting orphans to become slave labor on his ranch I just hope we have not seen the end of the Lassoed in Texas series because few authors make me laugh out loud while I m reading, but Mary sure does Gingham Mountain Mary Connealy SPOILER ALERT I didn t care for this novel as much as the one before it It wasn t as romantic as I would ve liked, which I ve begun to discover in Mary s earlier books Enough action, but not so much romance.And that was another thing where did all the excitement go There wasn t much action in the book I felt my heart race at Joshua s accident and at the scene where Prudence faked their affair But

I ve begun to discover in Mary s earlier books Enough action, but not so much romance.And that was another thing where did all the excitement go There wasn t much action in the book I felt my heart race at Joshua s accident and at the scene where Prudence faked their affair But there s usuallyaction than that Grant was never really in physical danger, and Hannah wasn t either.This book was actually pretty I can t believe I m saying this calm A calm Mary Connealy book That s like finding an upside down tornado in California I m used to it starting out with a fist flying brawl and ending with a muffled laugh and breathless kiss They fought all right, but it wasn t very heated It did make me laugh, but not much They did kiss, but it wasn t breathless at least not for me.It was still good, but Mary s definitely done better.Grant s great I love how devoted he was to his children How he dedicated his life and happiness to their care Talk about love He was so sweet, and kind, and gentle, and protective of his children His tender love for Joshua was so painfully sweet I nearly started bawling along with him That was cute how being in love with Hannah drove him crazy.Hannah really irritated me at first I wish she could just see that not everyone was like Perish yes, I m spelling it like that on purpose She was really annoying me as much as she was Grant, though he did pay her back when he was reminding her of all the things she did wrong Now that was funny.Prudence Idiot She was so annoying She and Horace are so weird It almost seems like she wanted Horace to hurt her And how she hated children And her act was so obvious And how she clawed at Grant And literally tried to kiss him in public SCARY And he disgusted her and didn t even know her name three fourths of the way into the novel Ha And to think, she was trying to make him fall in love with her Charlie was so smart, the sneaky little rascal I can t believe he went right under their noses and no one noticed a thing His conversation with Grant was really good I didn t know the little guy knew so much.Libby is so adorable I love how she acts and talks And how she and Charlie stick together And how she first discovered Grant was ticklish Too cute.Joshua was really sweet He was strong, and capable, and trusting And very mature too And Sadie, with her sass and generosity It was pretty clear they liked each other I had that impression nearly as soon as they were introduced They ll be great together.Marilyn was sweet, and sassy, and stubborn, and dependable She and Wilbur seemed cute together.Benny was so cute I love his energy, and exuberance, and desire to make everyone feel welcome Adorable.Grace was kind of weird in this book It was like she was suddenly allergic to her new home She just longed to be away from it Did it have to do with her being pregnant Or was the fact that knowing her sister was somewhat nearby and she hadn t seen her what made her go crazy And Daniel wasn t as sweet And the boys they re growing up so fast Yet at the same time they were exactly the same.The Brewsters were really annoying, and mean, and obnoxious.This book really was good It just seemed stifled
