Tried and True

I just finished reading Tried and True, the latest book by Mary Connealy.  She is one of my favorite authors and this one did not disappoint!

You meet Kylie in the Idaho territory in 1866, where she is trying to stake a claim on a homestead.  She is posing as a man, just like she did to serve in the army during the Civil War.  However, this time the land agent, Aaron Masterson, sees through her disguise!

When it appears that some one is trying to run Kylie off her claim, Aaron and Kylie begin to hunt for the culprit.  All Kylie can think about is finishing her claim, so she can sell it and move back east!  Before she knows it, Kylie begins developing feelings for Aaron.  Her plans are quickly going up in smoke!

This is a fun, fast moving tale that will keep you turning page after page.  You will not be able to wait for the next book in the series to be published!
