About the Book
If widowed seamstress Nell Armstrong has to make one more pair of boring chaps for the cowboys in her tiny Wyoming town, she might just quit the business altogether! So meeting Brand Nolte, a widower struggling to raise three girls on his own, seems like her dream come true. Brand has no idea how to dress the girls properly, and Nell finally has a chance to create beautiful outfits while also teaching the girls to sew.
But Nell is much more than a seamstress, and the 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 who has a target trained on them before it’s too late.
“A richly detailed adventure that captivates till the end.”–Publishers Weekly on Forged in Love

In My Opinion
I can count on a few things with every Mary Connealy book series. 1. A suspense thread that connects each book (so you definitely want to read her series in order). 2. A group of people (sisters, brothers, friends, etc) who will find love. 3. An entertaining and engaging story that I don’t want to put down.
The Laws of Attraction is the second book of Connealy’s Wyoming Sunrise series. We met Nell—the seamstress who despises making chaps—in Forged in Love. Like her friend Mariah, Nell is an independent woman running a successful business. Brand is a homestead with three daughters (who happen to really need a mother figure in their lives). Brand’s daughters were my favorite characters in this story.
As someone who spent her middle and high school years in Wyoming, I appreciated the setting and enjoyed the focus on how the state was the first to give women many rights such as land ownership and voting. While the romance fell a bit flat for me, the rest of the story made up for it. And I’m looking forward to Becky’s book!
