No Way Up by Mary Connealy


No Way Up by Mary Connealy
After ranch patriarch Chance Boden is wounded in an accident, he demands that the conditions of his will go into effect immediately: His children must reconcile and live at home for a full year or forfeit the ranch. He trusts hired hand Heath Kincaid to see it done. But when Heath suspects foul play, his desire to protect Chance’s daughter goes beyond duty.

Here's my review of this western adventure:


First, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Mary Connealy and her publisher for sending me a copy of "No Way Up" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

“No Way Up” is the mildly suspenseful kickoff to the new Cimarron Legacy series by Mary Connealy.  Just like Mary Connealy’s other books, “No Way Up” is filled with likeable characters, humor, action, romance and an amazing western landscape.  And even with all this going for it, I struggled to really enjoy this book.

Chance Boden has just been seriously injured in an accident.  He uses the seriousness of the incident to draw his three children back under the roof of the family’s ranch for one year or they forfeit their inheritance.  After saving Chance’s life, trusted ranch hand, Heath Kincaid, sets his eye on protecting Boden’s daughter Sadie and solving the mysterious circumstances surrounding Chance’s accident.

I love Mary Connealy’s writing enough to grab the next book in this series despite this read not being one of my favorite books.
