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.
