I personally cannot resist Mary Connealy’s westerns that are infused with a huge dose of humor. The third entry in her Trouble in Texas series, “Stuck Together” focuses on Vince Yates and Tina Cahill, the younger sister of one of his fellow “regulators”. Although Tina is about the last unmarried gal in the small town of Broken Wheel, Vince makes a valiant attempt to resist her charms. For one thing, Tina is fixated on the hopeless task of shutting down the town’s saloon. Besides, Vince is not about to marry and take a chance on passing down the family curse to another generation.

Anyone who has read even one of Mary’s books can guess pretty quickly where this story is going to end up. Meanwhile they can also expect plenty of action, danger and suspense, lots of laughs, a bit of soul searching, and of course a romance filled with misunderstandings.

Tina is a typical Connealy heroine. She is far from perfect but has a good heart, a strong faith, and lots of courage and spunk. Lawyer/sheriff Vince makes a very fine hero. It goes without saying that he is tough and courageous but he is also loyal and has a tender heart. He is a stand-up kind of guy who doesn’t shirk his responsibilities – even when they are dropped unexpectedly into his lap.

Pick up a copy of “Stuck Together” and prepare yourself for a merry adventure with Vince, his friends, and their gals. I don’t think you will be sorry.

Stuck TogetherWhen a lawman who values order gets stuck with a feisty crusader who likes to stir things up, there’s going to be trouble in Texas!

Now that she’s settled in town, Tina Cahill is determined to get Broken Wheel’s saloon closed for good. To that end, she pickets outside the place every afternoon. Unfortunately, so far no one has paid any attention.

Vince Yates earned the nickname “Invincible Vince” because of his reputation for letting absolutely nothing stop him. But Vince is about to face his biggest challenge yet: his past has just caught up with him. His father, mother, and the sister he didn’t know he had show up in Broken Wheel without warning. His father is still a schemer. His mother is showing signs of dementia. And his surprise sister quickly falls for one of Vince’s best friends. Vince suddenly has a lot of people depending on him, and Tina doesn’t approve of how he’s handling any of them.

With nearly every other man in town married off, Vince finds himself stuck with strong-willed Tina over and over again. Of course, Tina is the prettiest woman he’s ever seen, so if he could just get her to give up her crazy causes, he might go ahead and propose. But he’s got one more surprise coming his way: Tina’s picketing at the saloon has revealed a dark secret that could put everyone Vince loves in danger.
