Not knowing this is the last book in the series I just feel in love with all the people in this book! I just love Mandy and her courage and when ger family comes to help it brings tears to your eyes to see how close this family really is. When I finished it I noticed on the cover the names of all the books before this one and ordered them and read all 6 of them in a weeks time including a re-read of this one! This series is a keeper, loved all of them. Enjoy

My favorite in this series. Even though some of the story line is predictable, I found myself laughing at some of the antics. Can't wait to read the next series.

Marooned. In a castle set in the middle of nowhere. A self-imposed imprisonment, but imprisonment just the same. For the last two years Mandy has protected her family from the vultures that were out to annihilate them. She managed to keep her kids alive if not her husband. But when the others she loved stared to get hurt she sent them away and hardened her heart. Tom Linscott fell hard for Mandy just after she moved to the area and though he wanted to just take her husband out of the picture he waited -- and was amazed that Sidney lived so long. Now, though, Tom's sick of waiting, he's going to rescue Mandy from herself.

RATINGF: 4.5)SHARPSHOOTER IN PETTICOATS by Mary Connealy is an exciting inspirational historical romance set in Texas. It is the third in the "Sophia's Daughters" series,but can be read as a stand alone.See #1 "Doctor in "Petticoats" and #2 "Wrangler in Petticoats".What a wonderful conclusiong to the Sophia's Daughters series. This story brought back together some of the characters from the previous books.It Mandy and Tom's story. While both Mandy and Tom are not only stubborn,but are also a force to be reckoned with. They will have to fight to survive,escape a family feud,and Mandy will have to learn to trust her three children and herself to the handsome,determined Tom.This story has romance,love,trust,forgiveness,family,and of course faith. It is a must read and was a great way to bring Sophia's Daughters to its conclusion. As always this author will not disappoint.This book was received for the purpose of review from Net Galley and the publisher and details can be found at Barbour Publishing and My Book Addiction Reviews.

Catching up on an older book I had in my to-read pile today. This is the third book in the Sophie's Daughter series, but it stands alone. For those who like to read in order, the books are Doctor in Petticoats, Wrangler in Petticoats, and SHARPSHOOTER IN PETTICOATS. If I read the first two in the series (I think I did) I don't remember them, but this book seems to stand alone. It is pure, classic Mary Connealy, romance/western/comedy. Belief is suspended in this story, and there is a lot of kissing -- about the only attraction hero and heroine had for each other. She talks, he wants to shut her up. She cries, he wants to stop her. He bosses her around like a mindless idiot and she believes he is one. Sounds like a match made in Heaven. Plenty of shooting action, too. Definitely a historical western with a lot of humor. If you like westerns, historical romance, or Mary Connealy and you missed this when it first came out, it's still available. Fans will be delighted. I received this book free. My opinion is my own

At times I got annoyed with Mandy's actions and thoughts, but I love the series and think this was a solid ending to the series. I love that all of the women in the series have grit and faith, although this book isn't as based in faith in my opinion, but still a satisfying Christian Romance novel.

A bang of a finish to a great series -  Yep, Mary has ended this series with a bang. All I can say is that I'm glad she still has some books that I haven't read yet because I really do enjoy her writing. Throughout this series she expresses faith just through the few thoughts each woman has when they get in a difficult situation. You can just tell when they each repeat their own special thoughts (words of faith asking God to protect them and their loved ones) to themselves that they know God is with them. In this book also she shows how close a family can be even though they are miles apart and only feelings and emotions to communicate one of them needs help. This book seemed to be the most action packed and the best one of the series.

This series is one of the funniest and entertaining book series I read. If you like westerns and "clean" fun, these books will keep you in stitches.

Amazing book. I have known the characters for so long from this series and other series, that it was awesome to see them finally get together.  Mandy Mclellen has become known as "Lady Gray" by those around her. To protect herself and her three children from gold-seeking outlaws, she has holed herself up in the mansion her worthless first husband built. When Tom Linscott hears about this, he climbs up a cliff to rescue her--and she refuses to be rescued. So, naturally, he "kidnaps" her children, forcing her to join him.  Mandy does not want to involve this poor man in her life, which will no doubt get him killed.  This book is awesome. It's full of action, romance, and perfect comedy. Mary Connealy is a genius. I would be lucky if I could write only a tiny bit like her.

Mary Connealy writes such adventurous and fun stories that suck me in from the get-go. She is so good at starting off her books with action that hooks me fast and keeps me turning the page throughout the book. There are many characters from her previous books in Sharpshooter, which I enjoyed seeing again, and Mary's ability to weave these characters in while staying focused on the main plot is truly amazing. Both Mandy and Tom are stubborn people who butt heads from the very beginning of the story, but their chemistry together is sizzling and makes for some great scenes! Sigh...I love a strong hero who can be gentle in his dealings with the woman he loves. This is another great book from Mary Connealy and you won't be disappointed! Well, maybe disappointed in that it is the last in this series, but I'm sure she has upcoming books that will knock our boots off! *This galley book was provided by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for posting my honest review.

Mandy Gray and her three children had been living with her no-good husband for years before he went off and got himself killed. Instead of this being good news, though, it leaves Mandy the prime subject of a family feud between her husband and the vicious Cooter clan. When long-time friend Tom Linscott comes to rescue her and the kids out from under the fear of being killed, Mandy is convinced it means death for him as well. Fortunately (and unfortunately) for Tom and Mandy, both of them are strongly stubborn. And they both know they will have to work together if they want to survive. *sigh* A Mary Connealy book. Always such good reading. It feels as though I've known these characters for years now, like my own friends of the family. I've watched them grow up and marry off and start families of their own. Been on adventure after adventure with them. It is one of the reasons I enjoy Mary Connealy's books. This latest book (and the last in the Sophie's Daughter's Trilogy), was not my favorite though. For some reason I just wasn't into the story as I was with Beth and Sally. Perhaps because in the previous books, Mandy's story was always on the sidelines, little teases here and there about her terrible situation and the strong woman she was having to be in order to survive. So when we finally push everyone else to the side and get to see Mandy's story full-time, I was expecting more of the same feelings from before. They just weren't there. Not that Mandy is not an incredibly tough, independent woman. But the way she interacted with Tom was simply not interesting enough for me. The best scene in the whole book was when the reader finally gets to see just how sharp a shooter Mandy really is. I would have liked to see more of those shots! Still, Mary Connealy is no stranger to finishing a trilogy, and expertly wraps this one up with happy endings all around.

I have no idea why anyone would give this book more than one star! Cheesy at best. Mandy, the main character, is a total idiot. She lets men force her into marriages she disagrees with and is basically a "lunatic", as the author so aptly describes her. She makes the same miscalculated judgements throughout the book. There is never a climax to this book and I barely was able to finish it. I loved "Doctor in Petticoats". This book does not even come close to being as good. Sorry I wasted my money, and I won't do it again!
