Marshaling Her Heart
(Wyoming Sunrise #3)
By Mary Connealy
Christian Historical Romance, Western
Hardcover, Paperback, Audiobook & eBook, 304 Pages
October 17, 2023 by Bethany House Publishers 


Will their lives and romance survive the trouble coming their way?

Becky Pruitt has always prided herself on knowing everything that’s happening on her successful ranch, so an unexpected admission from her foreman, Nate Paxton, comes as quite a surprise. With the notorious Deadeye Gang on the loose, Nate–a former U.S. Marshal–believes Becky’s ranch is the best spot for a group of Marshals to use as a base to hunt them down.

The timing couldn’t be more crucial for the town of Pine Valley, and Becky feels obligated to help. But after escaping the grasp of her harsh father, she’s never liked giving up control, of her life or her ranch. If there’s anyone she can trust with her ranch, and her heart, it might be Nate. But the outlaws won’t go away quietly, and as danger draws ever nearer, Becky and Nate are faced with impossible choices that will test their growing bond.

My Review

MARSHALING HER HEART is a book about found family, new beginnings, women's suffrage, faith and unexpected love. It's a western set in a small Wyoming town with very likable characters, plenty of humor, romantic sparks and some danger mixed in. The previous two books are enjoyable and this third tops as the favorite and a fantastic ending to this series!

I have really enjoyed this series, but this third book was my favorite of the three. For some reason, these characters with the banter and attraction while working together on a ranch just worked for me. I also really loved Becky and Nate and how they're both strong and independent, but also hard-working and honest with good hearts. I was entertained while cheering them on, hoping that they'd keep safe, but also find their happily-ever-after. I also enjoyed that there were a few twists, turns and surprises. How things ended wasn't a surprise, but other things were as they didn't follow the usual mold for a romance, and I really liked that there were some surprises in how things played out. I also loved seeing the characters from the first two books and how they were getting on. There was such a feel of home and family in this story, even though the three main families weren't family at all, but very close friends. The elements of faith were light and woven through naturally. The romance had some sparks while also being very sweet. I pretty much loved this one!

In the end, was it what I wished for? This is a thoroughly enjoyable read from beginning to end. Readers will fall in love with these characters with the fun dialogue and entertaining situation they find themselves in. The danger adds a bit of tension that leads to a climatic finish. Definitely one to pick up! I'm looking forward to this author's next series.

Content: Some violence.
