Deep Trouble

Stranded and left for dead by those she trusted, Shannon Dysart is rescued by Gabe Lasley, not a prince or knight, but a simple rancher. Together, they set out to find a city of gold, one of the fabled seven. They must deal with the harsh sun, a pack of ruthless robbers, and their mixed feelings for each other. Will Shannon learn what real treasure is? Will Gabe do what is right or turn his back on his instincts?

Deep Trouble was written by Mary Connealy who is an award winning writer. Connealy has published over ten books. Deep Trouble is the second in the Wild West Weddings series. She lives on a ranch out West with her family.

I like and disliked this book. My primary complaint is several allusions to intimacy among the characters. I think Connealy goes further than she needs to, even when these references are among married characters. The book is well written and does not need them. My reasons for liking this book are numerous. It is good adventure. There are several exciting scenes that are in the spirit of other great adventure books/movies. There's mystery surrounding the cities of Gold, horse chases, life threatening landscape, and much more. Another reason to like this book is the way she handles the Gospel and moral theme of this book. I've read many books where it seems written in as an after-thought. In this book it flows so naturally that you cheer as the characters learn the lessons placed in their path and may even stop to consider the lesson for your own life.

This book will be released in May 2011. I award it 4 out of 5 stars. Deep Trouble is written by Mary Connealy and published by Barbour. I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
