The Laws of Attraction

amazon barnes & noble BookShop Goodreads

Can they risk giving in to the attraction between them while their lives are on the line?

If widowed town seamstress Nell Armstrong has to make one more pair of boring chaps for the cowboys in her tiny Wyoming town, she might lose her mind. So meeting Brand Nolte, a widower father struggling to raise three girls, seems like her dream come true. Brand has no idea how to dress the girls, and Nell finally has a chance to both create beautiful dresses and teach the girls to sew.

But Nell is much more than a seamstress, and the unique legal and investigative skills and knowledge she picked up alongside her late lawman husband soon become critical when a wounded stagecoach-robbery survivor is brought to town. As danger closes in from all sides, Nell and Brand must discover why there seems to be a bull’s-eye on their backs.

Fan favorite Mary Connealy invites you back to 19th-century Wyoming for this adventuresome Western romance, complete with a budding romance, witty banter, and an absorbing mystery.

Hott Review:

I read the last book in the series Forged in Love and well, I’ll let you know, I had lots of nefarious ideas about who Nell could have been in her previous life. Even though that mystery was cleared up by the end of the book, we were left with so many possibilities about who was in the gang and who wasn’t exactly who they claimed to be I was beyond excited to grab this next book.

Anyway 🙂 I really liked Nell, in both books, and it was fun to witness the beginnings of women being allowed to legally represent others. Witnessing how the women’s movement may have started was fun.

I loved the mystery! Trying to determine who done it, deciding whose stories didn’t match, and figuring out who saw what was a lot of fun. I enjoy Mary Connolly’s characters and these had great personalities that I enjoyed very much. I wasn’t shocked at the end because it was set up so nicely and yet the person wasn’t on my short list.

I can’t wait to read book three! There are a couple of characters that I’ve been guessing about and can’t wait to see the resolution and where they come out in the final showdown.
