Today’s book review features
Love on the Range by Mary Connealy.
Wyatt Hunt is temporarily bedridden and completely miserable. Somehow Molly Garner’s limited skills have made her the most qualified in their circle to care for Wyatt. But by the time he’s healed, she’s fed up with him and the whole ungrateful family. For even worse than his grumpiness were the few unguarded moments when he pulled at her heartstrings, and she has long determined to never marry.
Molly gets a job as the housekeeper at Oliver Hawkins’s ranch. But really she’s with the Pinkertons, spying to find out if Hawkins has abused women and if he’s guilty of murder.
Wyatt refuses to let her risk it alone, convincing Hawkins that he’s abandoning his own ranch, angered by his two brothers’ coming to claim a big chunk of it.
But when another Pinkerton agent gets shot, they realize Hawkins isn’t the only danger. The Hunt brothers will have to band together to face all the troubles of life and love that suddenly surround them.

From Author Website
Love on the Range is the third book in Mary Connealy’s Brothers in Arms series. This is Wyatt and Molly’s story. I’ve been anticipating this story since book one and it was fun to finally get to know Wyatt and Molly.
Wyatt is a good guy, if frustrated over the bed rest he has needed. Molly is an incredibly strong woman, especially after all she’s been through. Her story, the full story emerges in this book and what a story it is. Wow. She’s had a tough road. I love how she seeks to see justice done, not for herself but for others, even those she may never meet.
While the tone is in the author’s usual historical rom-com spirit, she also delves into abuse and serial killers. I found it fascinating how these difficult topics were addressed in the context of Wyatt and Molly’s time in history. This book also does a great job of wrapping up the entire series.
If you haven’t read the first two books in the Brothers in Arms series, I recommend doing so before picking up Love on the Range. Reading all three together is definitely the best way to enjoy these books.
