"In Too Deep" Book Review

In Too Deep

Bethany House (February 1, 2012)


Mary Connealy


I love Mary Connealy's writing so much - and I never thought I'd enjoy westerns, but her humorous writing just relaxes me and makes me laugh. This is the first time I read a book out of order though, and I won't be quick to do that again. I own the first book in this series "Out Of Control" but hadn't had a chance to read it yet, so I went ahead and read "In Too Deep". She does a good job of catching the reader up on what went on in the first book as you go, but it all sounded so good that I just kept kicking myself that I hadn't read it yet! I just don't know how she manages to pack just innovative storylines, intriguing characters (good and bad), humor and romance all into one book, but she does. This book didn't disappoint at all (except disappoint me that I hadn't read the first one first!). I will go back and catch myself up and I sure can't wait for the last one in the series!


Mary Connealy writes romantic comedy with cowboys. She is a Christy Award Finalist, a Carol Award Finalist and an IRCC Award finalist.

She is also the author of; Black Hills Blessing a 3-in-1 collection of sweet contemporary romances, Nosy in Nebraska, a 3-in-1 collection of cozy romantic mysteries and she's one of the three authors contributing to Alaska Brides with her Carol Award Winning historical romance Golden Days.


In 1866 Colorado, Ethan Kincaid agrees to a marriage of convenience with the same casual disregard he gives every decision. Audra Gilliland, young mother of two, accepts his proposal because she wants to stop being a burden to her newly married stepdaughter. And suddenly both of them are in far deeper than they'd planned.

Ethan doesn't expect Audra to affect him so profoundly, and when she begins to, he's terrified of the pain he's felt before when someone he loved was seriously injured on his watch. He's determined that his new wife will do as he says so he can keep her safe from the dangers that lurk on their ranch. Audra has been cared for all her life by one man or another--and they've done a poor job of it. Now she's planning to stand up for herself. And her new husband had better agree or get out of her way!

What will it take to transform two wayward hearts fearful of getting in too deep into two trusting hearts ready to risk falling deeply in love?
