Book Review: "The Husband Tree" by Mary Connealy

Product Description (from Amazon):
Hit the trail into the Old West, where a tough lady rancher and a seemingly aimless wrangler attempt to avoid the matrimonial noose. When Belle Tanner hires Silas Harden to help her get her cattle to market, the last thing she’s looking for is romance. So why does she turn into jelly whenever he’s near? Silas wants nothing to do with women, but he can’t seem to resist the pull of love when it comes to Belle. Can they make it through this cattle drive without getting hitched? Or will they steer straight into a commitment neither one counted on?

My overall feeling of the book:
True of all Mary Connealy’s books, I loved it!!!! I couldn’t wait to read this book after I read Montana Rose. I enjoyed everything about it.

My Favorite Character:
Belle. She was everything I would expect of a lady rancher.

My Favorite Scene:
The first night Silas comes to Belle’s ranch and sits down to supper with her and the girls. The whole scene is hilarious but mostly his reaction is what cracked me up.

It Would Have Been Better If:
It never had to end!! I could read more and more about Belle and Silas. I’m looking forward to the third book in the series featuring Wade.

I would recommend this book to:
Everyone. Especially if you enjoy Mary Connealy books. DON”T miss this one. I do recommend reading “Montana Rose” first because a lot of Belle’s back story takes place in that book and you’ll “know” her a lot better.

10/10. One of the best books I’ve ever read!

  1. Hi Colletta!
    I am an AVID reader, and think your review is great! What a neat way to get an opinion from a "ral person" lol. I really like this idea!! Maybe I'll copy it, if you don't mind!

  2. I haven't read a western in a long time! This sounds good to me :) See how well you reviewed it? Now I've got to go read it LOL

  3. O I felt the same way. I really didn't want it to end.
