Book Monday: Stuck Together

I've been meaning to post this review for a while now and I thought I already had! Silly me.

Today I have a review of an excellent novel that I finished reading a while ago, Stuck Together by Mary Connealy. 

Here's a little about the book:

"When a lawman who values order gets stuck with a feisty crusader who likes to stir things up, there's going to be trouble in Texas!
Now that she's settled in town, Tina Cahill is determined to get Broken Wheel's saloon closed for good. To that end, she pickets outside the place every afternoon. Unfortunately, so far no one has paid any attention.
Vince Yates earned the nickname "Invincible Vince" because of his reputation for letting absolutely nothing stop him. But Vince is about to face his biggest challenge yet: his past has just caught up with him. His father, mother, and the sister he didn't know he had show up in Broken Wheel without warning. His father is still a schemer. His mother is showing signs of dementia. And his surprise sister quickly falls for one of Vince's best friends. Vince suddenly has a lot of people depending on him, and Tina doesn't approve of how he's handling any of them.
With nearly every other man in town married off, Vince finds himself stuck with strong-willed Tina over and over again. Of course, Tina is the prettiest woman he's ever seen, so if he could just get her to give up her crazy causes, he might go ahead and propose. But he's got one more surprise coming his way: Tina's picketing at the saloon has revealed a dark secret that could put everyone Vince loves in danger."

My Thoughts:
The Idea:
If you know me, you may know that Mary Connealy is one of my all-time favorite authors. Stuck Together did not in any way disappoint.
Tina Cahill is determined to shut down Broken Wheel's tiny saloon. 
Vince gets stuck with his very interesting family when his father runs away on them. 
I have been following the Trouble in Texas series ever since the first book, and I was very excited to read the final one. 
The Characters:
As always with a Connealy book, I adored the characters. They were so funny, and yet they had such real, painful backstories that they were dealing with. I really grew to care for them and want the best for them. 
The Plot:
There was never a dull moment. At every turn I was laughing or anxiously awaiting what would happen next. 
The Setting:
A very rural town in Texas made for an excellent place for the main characters to be "stuck together!"
A FANTASTIC read! Seriously, if you have never tried a Mary Connealy book before, do so NOW. I promise, you will thank me later. 
One of my favorite quotes from the book. 


  1. This book sounds like a really good read. Thanks for the review Heather!

  2. Sounds like an interesting book! I like the scorpion definition :D

  3. This book sounds really good, and all of the Mary Connealy books I've read before have been very funny, so I'm sure this one is, too!


Thanks for stopping by! I would love to hear from you.
