Meet the McClellans, A True West Adventure in Doctor in Petticoats by Mary Connealy

This was my first read by Mary Connealy and I am hooked. Her characters bring the days of the Old West to life. This is a fast paced story about the McClellan family and the trials and tribulations of making a life in the rough days of 19th century West Texas.
Beth McClellan is returning to her family home to become a doctor but on the way she discovers the love of her life. With many twists and turns, always guided by her strong faith, she finds a way to fulfill her dreams. Her sister Mandy, another strong and independent daughter of Sophie McClellan, meets a different fate in a parallel story. Her story is left unresolved to be taken up in the next book in the series. The book is hard to put down with suspenseful plot that keeps you wanting more. Upon finishing this story I found myself anxious to read the next installment of the Sophie’s Daughters series. Mary has done excellent research into the time period as the historical setting details definitely add to the memorable characters and plot tension. I highly recommend this book for those who want a  historical romance and suspense combined for a good read.
