Book Review: Deep Trouble by Mary Connealy

If you’re looking for a fast-paced romantic cowboy story that will have you laughing one moment and tearing up the next, you have to read a Mary Connealy book.

Deep Trouble follows Shannon Dysart’s quest for the treasure her father claims hend in the southwest. She leaves fou her upper-crust St. Louis life in 1881 with some hired guides and the cryptic map left by her father. What follows is an adventure that takes the reader deep into the history of Grand Canyon and Shannon Dysart’s trouble.

If you’ve ever read one of Mary Connealy’s books, you know that so far I’ve only scratched the surface. In Mary’s books, none of the characters are ever what they appear to be at first glance. Shannon’s hired guides should be honorable, her long time society beau should be a helpless greenhorn, and the cowboy who comes to her rescue, Gabe Lasley, should leave her in a safe spot and go back to his own life. But of course, none of that happens.

And just what is the treasure that Shannon’s father found in the depths of this mysterious and beautiful canyon? Shannon and Gabe discover it, and you might also when you read this book.

Mary’s books are perfect reading for any time. My favorite time to read one of her stories, though, is on a weekend. That’s when I have chunks of time available to devote to one of my favorite authors.

Deep Trouble is available in paperback from Barbour Press or as an e-book from Amazon.

I received a copy of this book as a free download from Netgalley for my review.
