About the book: Josephine Nordegren is one of three sisters who grew up nearly wild in southwestern Colorado. She has the archery skills of Robin Hood and the curiosity of the Little Mermaid, fascinated by but locked away from the forbidden outside world–a world she’s been raised to believe killed her parents. When David Warden, a rancher, brings in a herd much too close to the girls’ secret home, her older sister especially is frightened, but Jo is too interested to stay away.

David’s parents follow soon on his heels, escaping bandits at their ranch. David’s father is wounded and needs shelter. Josephine and her sisters have the only cabin on the mountain. Do they risk stepping into the world to help those in need? Or do they remain separated but safe in the peaks of Hope Mountain?

Review of the book

I’ve enjoyed some of Mary Connealy’s works, some have been a hit, some a miss, this one? Somewhere in the middle.
I liked the plot line, the characters were somewhat all right but they could have used more development, more depth would have been nice too. They just felt like her other characters from other books, they blend too much into the same character, the hero too much like the heroes in her other books same as the heroines.

That’s not to say it is a bad book, it’s nice as a matter of fact, and I liked several parts of it, especially Dave’s and Jo’s romance, getting to know each other, and everything.

As with each of Mrs. Connealy’s books readers will find the cute humory backdrop in the romance, adventure, and slight suspense in Aiming For Love. I wasn’t sure at first what to think of the Bible part of the story, which is confusing when I say it but if you read it you’ll understand, I like how it was handled.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the author. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
