Doctor in Petticoats ~ Sophie's Daughters Book One - Book Review

About this book:

Doctor Alex Buchanan is a wanted man--a deserter from the army stalked by a bounty hunter--but he'd rather be dead than inflict any more pain on his patients. Beth McClellan is idealistic, believing the nursing training she received will be enough to help her serve as doctor to her home town in West Texas. When Alex and Beth meet in a stagecoach accident, they find that they work well together. But are his demons and her dreams too deeply rooted for either of them to pay the price required for a future together?

What I think about this book:

First off, I have loved every book that Mary Connealy has written that I have read so far. I loved this one from the first page and I loved even more how some of the characters in this book are from her other series called, Montana Marriages, but you do not have to read that series first to get the whole story.

Beth is a very strong individual while Alex is very complicated and has excess baggage that comes with him. Beth comes from a family that is very well put together and each individual is more than strong enough to stand on their own. I love the fact that there is actually two stories running together in this book that includes Beth's sister, Mandy and her new husband, which I am not to fond of. He is quite a fool in my mind. There are times in this book that you will be holding your breath wondering what is going to happen next.

Mary Connealy is definitely an author that writes books that you just can't put down. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
