Mary Connealy’s novel Calico Canyon is a story about fear finding victory through acts of courage.

In a series of bizarre events, along with a heavy snowfall, seventeen-year-old Grace Calhoun finds herself fired from her school teaching job, running from her past, accidentally married to stubborn Daniel Reeves, and a new stepmother to five rowdy sons. Trapped together for the winter at the 6R, Daniel and Grace can’t understanding each other because of their own deep seated pride and prejudices against each other. Happy that she has escaped her abusive adopted father and horrified with the manners of her new family, Grace wrestles with how to fit in when she feels unwanted and unneeded. Daniel, other the other hand, doesn’t know what to do with his new prim and proper wife who can’t cook but seems proficient only in correcting their poor grammar.

Although slow in the first few chapters, the plot picks up speed and provides the reader with a mix of intense bursts of action and times of reflection as Grace, Daniel, and the boys individually find God’s love and faithfulness when least expecting it.

When an avalanche traps Grace and one of her sons in a cave, she finds the courage she had lost so long ago as she learns to trust in the faithfulness of God found in Lamentations 3:22-23. After the avalanche, Daniel finds himself battling desires for Grace and feelings of guilt over his first wife’s death during childbirth. Grace, on the other hand, is still a naïve young woman who can’t understand Daniel’s behavior.

With surprisingly humorous twists along with fear-filled moments, readers will enjoy watching a difficult and stubborn man find his heart and a scared school teacher hiding behind proper manners find her courage. Because of mature gender-related subjects, this romantic comedy is recommended for an adult audience. -- Laurie Filson, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    Grace Calhoun is a teacher on the run from a man who is determined to catch up to her. Her past has been anything but pleasant, but she strives to look forward to a better future. But somehow, trouble seems to dog her every footstep, and she encounters something even worse - the six R's. Rowdy Daniel Reeves and his uneducated, motherless sons have more energy than a bull right after being branded. As a matter of fact, she's surprised any of the boys have survived to live as long as they have. And their bull-headed father Daniel, is not much better. Can Grace bring order to the six Reeves boys? Or are they a project just too big to handle?

    I have heard so much about Connealy's books, and as soon as I was able to get my hands on some of her writing, I quickly found out why she has so many rave reviews. I laughed so much over this book, my husband actually got irritated with all the noise I was making. The shenanigans from the girls in the first book were hilarious to read. Grace's primness versus the Reeves in book two had me bursting in giggles almost every page. And while book three was a little more serious, I had to just laugh at Hannah and her overactive imagination. A very enjoyable read, and one I will revisit again and again.
