Book Review: Wildflower Bride by Mary Connealy

Wildflower Bride (Montana Marriages)

Book Description:
Glowing Sun has never met a man she didn't pull a knife on--including the man who's determined to marry her.

Glowing Sun, a white woman raised by the Flathead Indians, is one of a handful left alive after the people of her village are slaughtered. When those remaining blame her for bringing on the killing spree, she is forced to leave her tribe.

With a vague memory of her life in the white world, which eventually, includes a name--Abby Lind--she declares her life as Glowing Sun over. But where does she now belong?

Wade Sawyer, having broken ties with his cattle-baron father, make himself responsible for Abby's survival. But can he win her heart when she pulls a knife at everything that moves?

When Wade receives word that his father may be dying, he heads home, with Abby reluctantly following behind. Neither is aware that land hungry killer slink in the shadows of the Sawyer Ranch.

Will Abby be able to keep the mild-mannered Wade out of trouble? Will Wade's rescue reflex get in the way of his common sense? Can they stay alive long enough to fall head over spurs in love?

My thoughts:
Wildflower Bride (Montana Marriages) by Mary Connealy is the third book in the Montana Marriages Series. I enjoyed the story of Wade and the knife-throwing Abby. I also enjoyed that the same characters from the other books were still involved in the story and you can see what is happening in their lives.

I do have to share my one difficulty with the character of Wade Sawyer, which probably won't be a problem to anyone else. When Wade Sawyer is introduced in the first book, Montana Rose (Montana Marriages Series #1) as a drunk and a coward, I instantly thought of the cowardly son that Dennis Hopper plays in the film, The Sons of Katie Elder. I had a very hard time imagining the person he had become as portrayed in the book. I know that because of Christ, Wade's life was turned around, but it just goes to show how strong an image can be.

I can't say enough how much I enjoy Mary Connealy's writings. She is so funny and definitely has a way with words. If you love to laugh, I highly recommend Wildfire Bride and the other books in this series.
