    Fired Up

    By: Mary Connealy

    I really enjoyed this book by Mary Connealy. It is hard to put down once you open it. Story is about Glynna Greer who came west as a mail order bride with two children. First husband was a abusive man and she did no better with the second one. Her husband is killed by the town Doctor Dare. Dare kinda has his eyes on her but her son Paul is very protective of his mom. He feels he can care for her she doesn't need a man. Paul doesn't like the attention the doctor is giving his mom. There are attempts to kill Dare. His house is being burned down with him in stabbed in the back. Will he live? Who is doing this? Get this book you won't be disappointed. Great adventure and twists.

    Thanks to Fred St Laurent for this bookfun club and TBCN. Thanks to the publishers and the sponsors. Most of all thank you authors if not for you would not have anything to read.

    I received this book from bookfun.org in exchange for my honest review. I had never read anything by this author, and was told that I was going to enjoy her writings, so, I was anxious to read this book. I don't ordinarily read a series book out of sequence, so, it was unusual for me to read it since this was Book #2 and I hadn't read Book #1. However, that caused absolutely no problem, as the author continuously provided pertinent information about the characters' past, to keep the reader updated. Thus, this book qualifies as a successful "Stand Alone" book. Very shortly after learning some of the history of the characters, with examples of murder, physical abuse, child abuse, thievery, treachery and many villainous acts, I found myself laughing out loud. This author is able to give the reader suspense, romance, intrigue, sprinkled with the most delightful comedic dialogue among the characters. In so doing, it made this novel so very real, because that is how true life is, for most people. We have laughter among our difficult times. I absolutely LOVE this author and am so glad I found her. In this novel, we have Glynna, who had two prior evil husbands, two troubled children who witnessed much abuse, Dare, who was instrumental in aiding Glynna, but,in the process, falling in love with her. There is one who wants Dare dead and the book gives the reader many murderous attempts, but, until the very end, does the reader finally learn the evil perpetrator, who lurked throughout the story.

    Now, I wanted to give this author five (5) stars, but, could not due to the huge distraction of improper grammar. It was very distracting to me, causing me, over and over, to stop my absorption in the story to be annoyed by the poor editing. It started on page 73 with the words, "these ones", which is so prevalent in today's generation, but, of such a sad commentary that an author would use this phrase to expose readers to poor usage of English. Another blaring error, which was peppered throughout the book was the word, "hung", when referred to someone having "hanged" himself. I notice many people misuse this word, but, I expect better when reading a novel. "Ms. Connealy, may I be your editor?...lol...I know I can do better!"

    I highly recommend this book! It was super enjoyable, with a super sense of humor amongst super suspense!

    This was a sweet story and a very easy read. Dare and Glynna were wonderful characters. I love how their romance progressed throughout the story and the life lessons he would impart to Paul.

    The romance in the story was sweet, but the friendships between Dare and his friends was truly amazing. I can't wait to read book 3.

    I received a free copy of this book courtesy of The Book Club Network for honest review.

    Fired Up is the second book in the Trouble in Texas series. Mary Connealy pulls through with another electrifying novel packed full of adventure.

    Glynna has had some very bad luck with husbands. Because of that, she has no desire to consider marriage again. All she wants is a fresh start to raise her two kids and start her very own diner. Problem is, she can't cook!

    Dare Riker has been doctoring folks for a while. He learned his skills while he was in the war but never had a formal education. Dare believes he needs to stop being a doctor and get into cattle ranching. This might be a good choice, but he knows nothing about cattle. To top things off, he has someone trying to kill him.

    This exciting story will have you laughing while enjoying the fun characters that the author has created. Be prepared to read about everything from cowboys and danger to family and love. There's even a great lesson on forgiveness thrown into the mix.

    I enjoyed this book and look forward the next one in the series, Trouble in Texas. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes adventure, romance, and humor.

    This is the second in the Trouble in Texas series, but if you have not read the first one, you can read this one as the back story is clearly given.

    Dare Riker is a doctor, well, sort of. He had lots of experience helping a real doctor in the Andersonville Prison during the Civil War. He's the only one around Broken Wheel, Texas with any doctoring experience, so "doctor" he is.

    Glynna Greer is a woman who was rescued from her abusive husband (in the first novel in the series). She is trying to make a living for herself and her two children by opening a diner. But there is only one problem. She can't cook!

    Dare and Glynna feel an attraction but there is lots of baggage in the way. Glynna wants to believe Dare is a decent man, but she has had such bad experiences with men, thinking of marriage terrifies her. And her teen-aged son is totally opposed to another man in their lives. He has only seen what horrors they've brought to his mother. And Dare is pretty busy himself, just staying alive - because someone wants him dead.

    Connealy has created great characters. I love the rapport between the men. They know each other well and have fun teasing each other. I was just a tad bit disappointed with the romance aspect. It went fast - too fast to have all of the issues worked out. I really felt for the son who was so opposed to the romance. So, this second in the series was not quite as good as the first one. We are set up, however, for the next in the series. Vince has met his match!

    I like to learn something when I read novels and in this series it has been about the Andersonville Prison, a Confederate prison during the Civil War. There actually was a group there called The Regulators who kept peace in the prison. It was a dangerous job as some of the Union soldiers thought the group must be in cahoots with the confederacy. The Regulators had a tight bond and we see that in this series. Luke, the main character in the first novel, and Dare are Regulators and their well being depends on their Regulator friends protecting them.

    I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
