Book Review: Doctor in Petticoats by Mary Connealy

Doctor in Petticoats (Sophie's Daughters)

Book Description:
Who Is Man Enough to be Doctor of Mosqueros, Texas?

When nurse Beth McClellan survives a stage coach accident, she soon realizes the derelict traveling alongside her is a doctor, and she forces him to help tend the injured. Alex Buchanan, army deserter, finds he can only care for the patients as long as Beth is right beside him, giving him courage. . .by yelling at him.

Beth thinks he’s a lunatic when he proposes that they marry and work together in her home town. But there’s no denying his skill, and she can see the emotional price Alex pays to help hurting people. Besides, she owes the guy for saving her own sister.

So she agrees to marry him.

And that’s when the real trouble begins. A murderous bounty hunter is on Alex’s trail. Alex only has to live long enough to turn himself in, and then he may face a firing squad. Not exactly the honeymoon of Beth’s dreams.

Alex may find the faith he lost while surrounded by the horrors of war, but will doing the right thing by facing his past, cost him his wife. . .and his life?

My thoughts:
I was excited to see Doctor in Petticoats (Sophie's Daughters) by Mary Connealy. I had to ask my library to order it and they so kindly did so. I have to admit I didn't even read the book description before I started the book and was pleasantly surprised to meet up with characters from her Lassoed in Texas Series. If I would have really read the cover the "Sophie's Daughters" would have let me know, but I just plunged right in and loved every minute of it. If you have read her previous books you will not be disappointed in Doctor in Petticoats. If you haven't read any of Mary Connealy's books, don't be afraid to pick up Doctor in Petticoats , it stands very well by itself.
