When a lawman who values order gets stuck with a feisty crusader who likes to stir things up, there's going to be trouble in Texas!
Now that she's settled in town, Tina Cahill is determined to get Broken Wheel's saloon 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. 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 showing signs of dementia. And his surprise sister quickly falls for one of Vince's best friends. Vince suddenly has a lot of people depending on him, and Tina doesn't approve of how he's handling any of them.
With nearly every other man in town married off, Vince finds himself stuck with strong-willed 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 crazy 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.
Connealy's dry wit gets me every time. Humour lurks everywhere, even in the midst of a knock-down, drag-out fight. Dialogue is as rapid-fire as the action, liberally laced with levity. The author's unique turn of phrase, the way she ends one scene and starts another, is a delight to read. I just devoured this book!
Sparks started to fly between Tina and Vince in book two of the Trouble in Texas series, and their rocky romance sizzles to a satisfying conclusion in this one. Not until they've nearly killed each other first, of course. :-) And bonus -- there are as many touching moments as there are funny ones. Connealy tackles some difficult subject matter -- all revolving around the need to accept who you are in the moment as you trust God's greater plan for your future.
Fans of the Trouble in Texas series will be happy to get more than just a glimpse of all their favourite characters. Stuck Together is the grand finale of a sensational series.
