Aiming for Love Celebrate Lit Tour and Giveaway

My Thoughts

Aiming for Love by extremely talented author Mary Connealy is another offering of historical Christian romance at its best.  Filled with inspiration and faith the author has written a whimsical tale that includes humor, action, emotion, and mystery.  It is a page turning delight.

Set in the mountains of Colorado, this is the tale of Josephine Nordegren and her two sisters.  They were raised by grandparents secluded from the outside world.  It is also the story of rancher David Warden and his family.  When the two families meet, sparks and arrows fly.

Author Connealy is a fabulous storyteller.  From the beginning I was invested in this book.  My dishes piled up while I kept reading.  I devoured this entertaining, inspiring, and even educational book in one day.  It is that good!

The writing style was smooth and inviting.  Details were enough to make me feel like I was up in the mountains but not so much that they were tedious.  The characters were well rounded and believable.  Conversations were accurate for the time period.

I highly recommend this beautiful book.  It is a sweet romance with action, intrigue, and mystery.  I definitely rate it 5 out of 5 stars.  A copy was provided by Celebrate Lit but these are my honest thoughts.

About the Book

Book: Aiming for Love

Author: Mary Connealy

Genre: Christian Historical Romance

Release Date: October 2, 2019

Aiming for LoveJosephine Nordegren is one of three sisters who grew up nearly wild in southwestern Colorado. She has the archery skills of Robin Hood and the curiosity of the Little Mermaid, fascinated by but locked away from the forbidden outside world–a world she’s been raised to believe killed her parents. When David Warden, a rancher, brings in a herd much too close to the girls’ secret home, her older sister is especially frightened, but Jo is too interested to stay away.

David’s parents follow soon on his heels, escaping bandits at their ranch. But his father is wounded and needs shelter. Josephine and her sisters have the only cabin on the mountain. Do they risk stepping into the world to help those in need? Or do they remain separated but safe in the peaks of Hope Mountain?

More from Mary

What it would do to someone to run wild from nearly their earliest memory?

What if three young girls had the basic skills to survive a rugged life but no adults to guide them?

Would they grow up to be a completely odd and untamed version of themselves, or the truest, in some ways most honest version?

I wanted to explore that idea: wild children, tough young women, afraid of the invading world, but lonely, too. So I created the plot for my Brides of Hope Mountain series by mixing the three little girls who’d grown up wild on the top of a mountain with some fairy tale ideas.

Book one, Aiming for Love, is Josephine Nordegren’s story. I had this vision of Ariel the mermaid seeing a man for the first time when strangers invade the high valley she lives in with only her two sisters. Curiosity is her besetting sin, or so she’s always been told. She has wilderness skills, mainly in the form of owning a bow and arrow and understanding wild animals, but for the first time, she is drawn to a man.

Jo needs to be tamed, or Dave, the man she can’t stop watching from in the woods, needs to learn the ways of the wild, because they’re out of place in each other’s worlds.
