The Laws of Attraction by Mary Connealy.

About the Book

If widowed town seamstress Nell Armstrong has to make one more pair of boring chaps for the cowboys in her tiny Wyoming town, she might lose her mind. So meeting Brand Nolte, a widower father struggling to raise three girls, seems like her dream come true. Brand has no idea how to dress the girls, and Nell finally has a chance to both create beautiful dresses and teach the girls to sew.

But Nell is much more than a seamstress, and the unique legal and investigative skills and knowledge she picked up alongside her late lawman husband soon become critical when a wounded stagecoach-robbery survivor is brought to town. As danger closes in from all sides, Nell and Brand must discover why there seems to be a bull’s-eye on their backs.

Fan favorite Mary Connealy invites you back to 19th-century Wyoming for this adventuresome Western romance, complete with a budding romance, witty banter, and an absorbing mystery.

Danielle’s Review

I received a complimentary copy of this book.
I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC guidelines.


The Laws of Attraction by Mary Connealy is book two in her historical romance series Wyoming Sunrise.

This was a wonderful story that I have been looking forward to since reading the first book in the series. I loved Nell and couldn’t wait to learn more about her, her past, and how she’d get her happily ever after.

It was fun to learn the history the author included in this story, too, especially about the first female judges in Wyoming. And Brand’s reaction to Nell’s strength and knowledge was perfect, and made him a wonderful father of girls, too. I enjoyed how each and every one of the characters interacted. And now I can’t wait for Becky’s story.

If you enjoy western romances with humor and suspense built in, then give this series a read. I’m enjoying it!
