SPEAK NO EVIL by Mary Hamilton
Having his younger sister at summer camp will be a pain, but Taylor Dixon, 15, never expects the pain to go so deep. When she falls for his snobbish cabin mate, a war of words and pranks escalates, threatening to land him in jail and destroying his dreams for the future—until a lesson learned from an old engine sets him free from the prison he built himself.

With the rare ability to play the piano by ear, Amaryllis Brigham wants nothing more than to someday found a music school. However, someone keeps undermining her hopes and dreams, and
she's sure it's Bram Everstone--the father of the one man she's ever come close to falling for.

MIRACLE IN A DRY SEASON by Sarah Loudin Thomas
Perla Long wants a quiet, safe place for her and her daughter where her past can stay hidden, but she ends up in a town in desperate need of a miracle. Bachelor Casewell Phillips sees everything he wants in a woman in her, but can’t get past the sense she’s hiding something.

WITH EVERY BREATH by Elizabeth Camden
In the shadow of the nation's capital, Kate Livingston's respectable life as a statistician is disrupted by an encounter with the insufferable Trevor McDonough, the one man she'd hoped never to see again. A Harvard-trained physician, Trevor never showed the tiniest flicker of interest in Kate, and the only reason he seeks her out now is because of the one thing they share in common: the competitive drive to cure the world’s deadliest disease.

Book Description:

Saddle up for a wildly fun ride with the Wilde sisters! Kylie Wilde is the youngest sister--and the most civilized. Her older sisters might be happy dressing in trousers and posing as men, but Kylie has grown her hair long and wears skirts every chance she gets. It's a risk--they are homesteading using the special exemptions they earned serving in the Civil War as "boys"--but Kylie plans to make the most of the years before she can sell her property and return to the luxuries of life back East.

Local land agent Aaron Masterson is fascinated with Kylie from the moment her long hair falls from her cap. But now that he knows her secret, can he in good conscience defraud the U.S. government? And when someone tries to force Kylie off her land, does he have any hope of convincing her that marrying him and settling on the frontier is the better option for her future?

Praise for Tried and True:

"Another great laugh-out-loud historical romance with memorable characters who have charm, style, grace, and a bit of mischief." --RT Book Reviews on In Too Deep

"Connealy's style is fast-paced and spritely and sure to keep drawing fans." --Publishers Weekly

"With her trademark humor, Connealy weaves a delightful tale that is sure to please her fans and win new readers." --Library Journal on Over the Edge

1866, Idaho Territory

Kylie Wilde is a character I adore. She posed as a man to fight in the Civil War so when it came right down to it she had grit, but she was also a lady at heart. While her two sisters, Shannon and Bailey, liked wearing trousers and knew how to do the work of a man, Kylie was completely out of her element. When it came to a hammer and nails it was said "she had to scare nails into place" and she often called on her sisters for help. She often repeated the same phrase to herself, "Three years to earn the life I want." because she hated working the land she was trying to claim for her father. She wanted to live in a big city and nothing was going to stop her, that is until land agent Aaron Masterson saved her life on more than one occasion.
Mary Connealy is at it again with her unique and outspoken characters that tug at your heart strings. Kylie's character really drew me into this book. From the very first page I was in awe once again by Mary Connealy's natural ability to captivate her readers. Like a worm on a hook draws fish, I was caught and reeled in. This book has the perfect blend of humor, drama and sweet romance which is a Connealy trademark. She never disappoints her readers. Her attention to detail and the way she describes each scene in this book made it so enjoyable. I rather liked the opening scene where Kylie was trying to repair the roof. It was funny with a touch of drama and the hero came to the rescue. A perfect scene in my opinion and the plot is truly unique as far as I'm concerned. Tried andTrue is a brilliant opener to what I feel will be an amazing series. I can't wait to read Bailey's and Shannon's story! If you're a fan of Mary Connealy you already expect a great book, and it is, but if you have never read one of her books this is a great place to start. I think you'll love Kylie's story as much as I do. Very highly recommended to anyone that loves great, historical romance!
