If I am honest I have to start by telling you two things. One is that Mary Connealy may very well by my favorite author and I absolutely love reading her books and recommend them to everyone. (Especially my Enginerd if he wishes to know what I am giggling about... again...). Second, I do not really remember Cowboy Christmas and it was definitely my least favorite book. (Or in other words the only one I did not love...) Deep Trouble is said to be a sequel to Cowboy Christmas which honestly makes me want to go back and give it another change because this book is awesome.
The characters are witty and the bad guys have me praying for redemption. Mary is the first author that I have found challenges me with her stories which then in turn causes me to bring the same mindset into my life. What I mean is that with some stories I just want the bad guy to die and the good people to go on happily ever after. yet Mary has shown me that a despicable character may turn into a wonderful man with a heart of Christ. Therefore I find myself with a heavy heart hoping and praying for a rough character to find a more pure life of redemption.
Beyond all that this was a great story. Bringing options for romance and family responsibility that makes a reader go back and forth into which way to go. Then the last thing I have to say other than loving this novel. ...the ending... was I imagining things or was there suddenly an Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade over lay? So much fun!!
