"Tried and True," by Mary Connealy

Saddle up for a wildly fun ride with the Wilde sisters!

Kylie Wilde is the youngest sister--and the most civilized. Her older sisters might be happy dressing in trousers and posing as men, but Kylie has grown her hair long and wears skirts every chance she gets. It's a risk--they are homesteading using the special exemptions they earned serving in the Civil War as "boys"--but Kylie plans to make the most of the years before she can sell her property and return to the luxuries of life back East.

Local land agent Aaron Masterson is fascinated with Kylie from the moment her long hair falls from her cap. But now that he knows her secret, can he in good conscience defraud the U.S. government? And when someone tries to force Kylie off her land, does he have any hope of convincing her that marrying him and settling on the frontier is the better option for her future?

I read this book in a day.  It is a light hearted book with fun characters.  However I find it hard to believe the three sisters got away with being "men" in the Civil War.  It does have a couple of little twists in it that keep the story moving along.  It's one of those "shopping list" books, where you can read the book and be thinking of other things also.

Stars out of 5 : 3.5 I do want to read the rest in the series as I think altogether they will be good books.  However as a stand alone book, this doesn't have too much "meat" in it.  The story line is a bit weak for me and too many things tend to be unbelievable with the Kylie character.  If you're looking for a book to read in a day this is a good one.  As I said before I think/and am hoping the other books in the series will be more "meaty."
