Fired Up by Mary Connealy ~ another amazing adventure from a talented author ~ Review on Mom Loves 2 Read

Fired Up    by  Mary Connealy


Rollicking Wild West Adventure and Romance from Bestselling Author Mary Connealy.

Dare Riker is a doctor who saves lives, but someone seems determined to end his. It may have something to do with the traitors he dealt with during the Civil War, or it might be related to the recent incident with Flint Greer and the ranch. Whoever the culprit is, he or she seems really fired up, and Dare can't let his guard down for a moment, which is a challenge, since right now he's trying to win the heart of the recently widowed Glynna.
Glynna Greer came west as a mail-order bride and ended up in a bad situation. Now her husband, Flint, is dead, and she's determined to care for her son and daughter on her own. She wants to believe Dare Riker is as decent as he seems, but she's terrified to lock herself into another marriage. She plans to support her small family by opening a diner--never mind that cooking is not her greatest talent. The men in Broken Wheel, Texas, are so desperate for home cooking that they seem willing to overlook dried-out beef and blackened biscuits.
Glynna can't help but notice that danger follows Dare wherever he goes. There's the avalanche. And then the fire. But things really get out of hand when someone plunges a knife from Glynna's diner into Dare's back. Are Flint's cronies still plotting revenge? Is Glynna's son engaged in a misguided attempt to protect his mother? Is a shadowy outsider still enraged over past injustices? And can Dare survive long enough to convince Glynna to take another chance on love?

My Review :
Anyone who knows me well, knows that Mary Connealy is one of my all-time Favorite Christian Fiction Authors.  I have almost ALL of the books she has written and have read many of them at least 6 times (so far).  Fired Up is another wonderful story from the mind of this talented author.
Fired Up opens with adventure and ends with an intriguing romance.  Throughout the story is a 'whole passel' of twists and turns that kept me so interested I did  not realize it was nearly 2am before I finally finished reading.  Dare is not a typical male main character, and is definitely not without his own flaws.  The amount of danger and injury this poor many survives is unbelievable, yet he seems to bounce back over and over.  Add to the mix Glynna who is a determined and capable widow, not looking for a new man in her life and trying to take care of her children; and you have the makings of a romance doomed for failure from the beginning.  Yet, somehow manages to happen regardless of Glynna's son being completely against it from the start.
I loved this book and can't wait to read the next in this series, or any other from this author.  Once again she has me going back to my favorites of her books and re-reading them, some for the 7th or 8th time!
