Sharpshooter in Petticoats is the third book in the Sophie’s Daughters series. It is Mandy’s story but it is also a family reunion of sorts. Characters from the Lassoed in Texas series and Montana marriages join the fun. It’s been five years since Doctor in Petticoats; Mandy McClellen Gray is now a widow living on her own trying to fight off outlaws. When Tom Linscott shows up with his solution to her problems; marry him and move to his ranch. However Mandy’s problems continue to follow her, and her family rushes to her aide. Will Mandy and Tom and her children get a happy ever after? Will Mandy’s family make it time?
Out of the three Sophie’s Daughter’s books my favorite has be Sharpshooter in Petticoats. I guess I just loved the fact the heroine was good with a rifle, but was also learning to be feminine when the right guy came along that is. What I love about Mary Connealy’s books is that her heroines are strong and strong willed. It’s nice to western books with a strong heroine not some damsel in distress; because in reality the women who went west with their husbands and families had to be strong tough in order to survive. Mary Connealy brings the old west alive in her novels, finally western romance with some grit.
