Book Review: The Husband Tree by Mary Connealy

Book Description:
Belle Tanner buries her third worthless husband and makes a vow over his shallow grave. She’s learned her lesson. No more men.

Silas Harden just lost his second ranch because of a woman. The first deserted him when times got tough. Now he’s had to quit the whole state of New Mexico to avoid a trumped-up shotgun wedding and the noose of matrimony. He’s learned his lesson. No more women.

Belle needs hired hands to move a cattle herd late in the season and there’s no one around but seemingly aimless Silas. She hires him reluctantly.

Silas signed on, glad for the work, though worried about a woman doing such a thing as hiring drovers, only to find out he’s the lone man going with five woman, including a baby still in diapers. After the cattle drive is over, he might as well shoot himself to speed up the process of being embarrassed to death.

A fast approaching winter.

The toughest lady rancher you’ve ever seen.

My thoughts:
The Husband Tree by Mary Connealy is the second book in the Montana Marriages Series. This story is full of the great humor and wit that I've come to expect from Mary Connealy. I thoroughly enjoyed The Husband Tree and couldn't help being drawn into Belle's harrowing cattle drive and her undeniable attraction to Silas which led to an exciting conclusion.
