Fired Up

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

My Review:

Having enjoyed Swept Away, I was excited to dig into Fired Up and return to the lives of these characters. Fired Up is the second book in Mary Connealy’s Trouble in Texas series.

In Swept Away, we met Dare and Glynna, the main characters of Fired Up.

Dare is the town doctor, but since he never went to school to be a doctor, he doesn’t think he deserves that title. However, he still does what he can to save people’s lives. But it seems like someone is out to end Dare’s life! Several incidents point to something more than just an accident.

Glynna was the mail-order bride of a man named Flint. Flint was not a good husband and Glynna was eager to get herself and her children away from him. Flint is now dead and Glynna is determined to support herself and not rely on any man again. Her children are also determined to keep any men away from their mother. This proves to be quite difficult when Glynna opens up a diner and men from all over town are coming to eat there – despite Glynna’s poor cooking.

But Glynna can’t help being drawn to Dare. And with all the danger he continues to fall into, Glynna finds herself wanting to help keep him safe.


I am still somewhat new to Mary Connealy’s writing but I love the way her books are easy to read. You can’t help but be swept into the story and live in the character’s world. I definitely enjoyed this book and am looking forward to reading the finale of this trilogy whenever it is released.
