Tried and True by Mary Connealy


Saddle up for a wildly fun ride with the Wilde sisters!

Kylie Wilde is the youngest sister–and the most civilized. Her older sisters might be happy dressing in trousers and posing as men, but Kylie has grown her hair long and wears skirts every chance she gets. It’s a risk–they are homesteading using the special exemptions they earned serving in the Civil War as “boys”–but Kylie plans to make the most of the years before she can sell her property and return to the luxuries of life back East.

Local land agent Aaron Masterson is fascinated with Kylie from the moment her long hair falls from her cap. But now that he knows her secret, can he in good conscience defraud the U.S. government? And when someone tries to force Kylie off her land, does he have any hope of convincing her that marrying him and settling on the frontier is the better option for her future?

My Review

I just love Mary’s books. They are always so much fun and also suspenseful.  Its seems each book shines forth some of Mary’s country girl self and lets us all know that she has a playful adventurous heart. It is always a joy to read her books and this new series will not disappoint anyone.  Have you ever thought what it would be like to live as a man, just to fool others ? Well these Sisters take it to the limits by fighting in the war and then homesteading as men.  Do they enjoy this ? Well I think one might really enjoy it. Will any of them change their minds and long for love and marriage ? Could any man really win their hearts, after all they have had to be strong and courageous living as men for so long.  You will want to saddle up and get your own copy of this first book in the series and see what trouble they get into… I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a light hearted adventure and some really love ?  Did I say love ?  Hurry now ya here and get to the store or amazon to get yourself a copy !
