Review of “The Unexpected Champion” by Mary Connealy
High Sierra Sweethearts Series Book Three
Wow! Once your hands pick up this book and open it you won’t be able to let it go! It’s like taking the reins of a racehorse! Opening the book is like opening that race gate–you’re off on a high adventure that just doesn’t stop!
If you read the previous two books in this series, you learned who the “The Accidental Guardian” and “The Relucant Warrior” were, now in this book three, you will learn who the “Unexpected Champion” is!
When tough frontierwoman Penny Scott and city slicker John McCall meet up it is fireworks from the beginning, but add in a kidnapping, beating, a few gun fights, all while trying to survive being lost in the Sierra Nevada high country, only to be met with a shotgun wedding or a noose after returning to civilization, seems to add up to a great start of a relationship. It’s just one adventure and mystery after another as these two team up to bring a killer to justice and secure the future of a little boy.
This book will keep you reading until the very end to discover what happens to the matchup of these two people who are as different as night and day yet who each need the other to survive the conquests they are facing. You will also enjoy the inclusion of Cam, Penny’s brother, Trace, and snippets from the rest of the family, as you are taken back to the previous days of Raddo and the dangers they all faced at the end of book two.
I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher. All opinions in this review are my own.
