REVIEW: Doctor in Petticoats by Mary Connealy

“Doctor in Petticoats” by Mary Connealy is one of the best birthday gifts I’ve ever received. This is the story of Sophie McClellan’s daughter, Beth. She left home for an education and came back with dreams of being a doctor. When She meets Alex Buchanan on the stagecoach and solicits his help to treat several injured people on the road, she finds herself coaxing a reluctant doctor. When it becomes clear that Alex cannot attend to patients without Beth, and that Beth is not as knowledgeable as Alex, their inability to separate leads to a marriage of convenience that quickly turns to one built on a foundation of love and mutual respect. Meanwhile, Beth’s sister, Mandy has married and found herself in Montana with a worthless husband and a worthwhile neighbor.

Only Mary Connealy can write such wonderfully funny, thoughtful, rugged, spiritual, wild western adventure! She is one of my absolute favorite authors. And these are some of my favorite characters. It is a complete pleasure to see how these little girls have grown up! I love this new series!
