Editorial Reviews

Once Upon a Romance
Wildflower Bride is a tender story of two wounded souls who learn that if you trust and believe God can heal. Every story Ive read of Mary Connealys is full of independent yet sensitive characters that are portrayed with human qualities that I can relate to and Wildflower Bride is no exception. Ms Connealy has a way of writing that will make the reader feel all the emotions her characters are feeling. Add a sprinkle of humor and mix with inspiration to make her writing a favorite.

Old West mixes with romance, humor and faith in a happily-ever-after mix that leaves pleasant memories and a smile on the face. Abby is my kind of heroine. Hope to see her and Wade in further adventures. Faith element: medium to high.

Novel Reviews
Wildflower Bride is a book filled with cantankerous characters and dangerous situations, yet Mary Connealy is able to lasso these wild situations with God’s mercy and grace, and the outcome is truly entertaining! I’ve read several of Mary’s stories at this point, and Wildflower Bride brings out what I love most in her writing. Wildflower Bride is a jewel in Mary Connealy’s writing crown, and I highly recommend it to you! Jump in and hang on! It’s a wild ride!

    Great Ending!

    I enjoyed this book, not nearly as much as the other two, but it was still fun. It was really cool how a side story in both of the first two books was pulled together into this book and finished. However, you don't need to read the others to read this one. She writes in such a way that you feel like you've known them forever and haven't missed a thing if you pick up in the midst of a series.

    What I liked: I liked that Mort didn't change his mind about his heir. It made it feel more real to me. I liked that while Mort made changes he never did a complete 180. The relationships all seemed very plausible and real to me. Oh, and I of course, loved that I laughed throughout the book!

    How can anybody like this book?
    Wade did not marry well. After 8 years of living with Indians Abby hates all white people. Including all those that try to help her and her brother who is moved to tears to discover she is still alive. Wade has been brought up by a dominating physically and emotionally abusive father and then marries a dominating cold and abusive wife who is constantly threatening him with a knife. This is not a cute couple. Very disappointing book---not nearly as good as the others in the series.

    A Laugh Out Loud Conclusion to a FABULOUS Cowboy Series!

    The conclusion to this fabulously hilarious cowboy series is the best one yet! Now don't misunderstand me-I LOVED the first two books, but this one just had me laughing out loud more often, until I couldn't stand it! Wow! Now THAT is awesome writing. Mary Connealy is known for her wonderful cowboy series and her laugh out loud antics she throws in to them, and there is good reason,too! Not only can she make your sides hurt from laughter, she uses such detail that the stories come to life in front of the reader.

    Wildflower Bride takes us to Wade Sawyer's story. We met him first in Montana Rose (book 1), in which I just didn't like him, and saw him a bit throughout The Husband Tree (book 2), which I started to warm up to him a bit better. But reading his story here, really tugged my heart! He was a man I could easily fall in love with! (Again, Mary, I ask you if you can make him real?! ) He was such a changed man in this one. And seeing him with Abby, aka, Glowing Sun, really made my heart burst with love for both of them. Abby was a beautiful character that went through so much heartache, but was so strong in many ways. The mother in me wanted to reach out and take her under my wing and pray for her.

    This is definitely a wonderful 5 star conclusion to a "keep forever" series! If you are a Mary Connealy fan then I surely recommend you read Wildflower Bride ( and Montana Rose & The Husband Tree, too!). God's love flows through the words and shines in the characters' hearts. If you are new to Mary Connealy books and you love laugh out loud stories to end a crazy day, then start right here wish this fantastic book and it's series. I'm ready for my next dose of cowboys and laughter in Dr. In Petticoats!

    Another Great Comical but Sweet Romance

    I'm a big fan of Mary Connealy. Her books never disappoint! This one is really great, as always.

    We met the hero, Wade, in Montana Rose, where he was actually the bad guy. Then in The Husband Tree, we started to really love him. That's also when we met the heroine, Abby/Glowing Sun. Wade rescued her from some bad men who had kidnapped her and then he promptly falls in love with her. But she's "engaged" to the Flathead Indian chief's son. Still, Wade holds out hope that she will one day want him and need him to rescue her again.

    And that day comes in Wildflower Bride! Abby's whole village is wiped out and Wade gets his chance to take care of her again. However, I lost count on how many times she pulls her knife on him! It's so comical to see this half-wild woman raised by Indians dealing with falling in love with Wade by constantly pulling her knife on him. I also loved how feisty and brave and capable she is. She actually always ends up saving herself before Wade gets a chance to. But he keeps on thinking that if he hangs around long enough, she'll actually need him!

    Mary Connealy is the queen of comical situations in romance. I just loved this latest one. Very sweet and romantic, too.

    great western romance

    Mary Connealy has done it again. I loved reading Wildflower Bride and discovering that the characters from the first books in the series are still having their happily ever-afters. Its great to be reconnected with characters you've grown to love. And Mary's characters are terrific. Mary writes with a blend of humor, deep characterization and plots that are never slow. The action and romance make it difficult to put down one of her books. Wildflower Bride doesn't disappoint. Its definitely a keeper and you'll love seeing the growth Wade has come through over the length of the series. Really shows God's mercy and redemption. I can hardly wait for Mary's next series.
