INVENTIONS OF THE HEART by Mary Connealy, Reviewed by Paula Shreckhise #NewRelease

Meanwhile... back at the ranch, things and marriages are being sorted out.

Meanwhile... back on the mountain, the take-back of the lumber business has begun.

Villainy abounds and this evil mastermind has tentacles everywhere. But the guys and gals have God on their side. “God always says what most needs saying before we even think to need it.”

While all does not go smoothly, Zane and Caleb do all they can to fiercely protect their wives and their property. The threat of danger keeps all of them on their toes.

The three Stiles sisters cannot keep from inventing, planning and organizing. They are my favorite characters, with their brains and wit. The romance, even though the marriages were rushed, is sweet and swoony.

Even though not everything is resolved, there is another whole book to get that done and see Jilly wed. Ms. Connealy gives us some fascinating facts about waterwheels and engines in early California history. The story is sprinkled liberally with her characteristic humor. I cannot wait to see how the story ends and who gets to persuade Jilly into marriage.

BackCover Blurb:
Her heart seeks safety. But will trouble find her even here?

After her sister's marriage, Michelle Stiles is left hiding at Two Harts Ranch with the handsome but stubborn Zane Hart. She's managed to stay one step ahead of her stepfather and his devious plans, but if he finds her, she will no longer be safe.

Zane has problems of his own. Having discovered a gold mine on his property, he must figure out how to harvest it without kicking off a gold rush. Michelle, educated and trained to run her father's business, wants to manage all aspects of the mine, but Zane thinks for a person so smart she can have some misguided ideas. Running the mining operation will be a dangerous job, and he can't risk putting her in harm's way.

But danger finds Michelle anyway when she's suddenly attacked. If they go to the sheriff, they'll reveal her location, but if they do nothing . . . their troubles have only just begun.
