Swept Away by Mary Connealy ~ Review

 Swept Away (Trouble in Texas, #1)

Lucie's Review:

Ruthy McNeil is swept away and up into Luke's arms!

A fast-paced, action-filled adventure, full of romance,  and suspenseful mystery, that makes for a wonderful start to what is sure to be great series!

Engaging from the very beginning, along with well written characters that were very likable, some of my favorite scenes were the ones with Ruthy and Luke, because sometimes they had trouble getting their points across. As you can imagine that caused some funny situations :)

I loved how Luke and his friends were close as musketeers and how they all came together to help Luke defeat the man who killed his father, and took his land.  I'm really looking forward to their stories too!

Overall, a great book, high on adventure, and plenty of smiles, yet there was also a great faith track and I liked the way the characters interacted with each other. And for me there was this "AHA!" moment when I realized that Luke was Callie Kincaid's brother (Callie is from the Kincaid Brothers Series), I love it when authors put sweet little treats in there for their faithful readers :) A wonderful adventure that you won't wan tot miss!

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

About Swept Away:

When a cowboy focused on revenge encounters a woman determined to distract him, there's going to be trouble in Texas!
Swept away when her wagon train attempts a difficult river crossing, Ruthy MacNeil isn't terribly upset at being separated from the family who raised her. All they've ever done is work her to the bone. Alive but disoriented, she's rescued by Luke Stone...so unfortunately, there are more chances to die in her immediate future.
Luke is on a mission to reclaim the ranch stolen from his family. But the men currently on the property won't let it go without a fight. Luke plans to meet up with friends who will help him take back the land, and since he can't just leave Ruthy in the middle of nowhere, she's going to have to go with him.
But the more time Luke spends around the hardworking young woman, the more he finds himself thinking of things besides revenge. Will Ruthy convince him to give up his destructive path and be swept away by love?
