welcome to my blog

i'm Michelle Gregory, a 55-year-old wife, mom, Jesus-follower, beginning French learner, and Arizona native who moved to Montana 6 years ago (yeah--that was a huge change). i collect way too many craft supplies (and occasionally use them), spend way too much time on Instagram and Facebook, obsessively check my email, and own 2 horses, 2 dogs, and 1 very large black cat. i've been working on the sequel to my one fantasy novel for 9 years (don't you feel better now?). i haven't done anything here for a long time, but maybe jumping back into blogging will get the writer side of my brain humming again.

all of that may be more than you wanted to know, but anyway...

review for Mary Connealy's Montana Rose

From the first moments of reading Mary's Petticoat Ranch, I knew I was going to be a Mary Connealy fan. I liked the way her sense of humor came across in her story. With each book in the “Lassoed in Texas” series, I appreciated her wit as her characters dealt with difficult issues.

When I picked up Montana Rose, I was expecting the same thing. At first I was disappointed with the more serious tone, but as I continued reading, I started to care about Cassie and Red. Would Cassie realize that Red loved her for who she was and not for who she thought she had to be? Would Red be patient with Cassie as she learned how to walk in grace instead of legalism?

Whether she’s being funny or serious, Mary tells a good story. She says she doesn’t write like Janette Oke, but I’d rather read Mary Connealy any day. I look forward to reading the other books in her “Married in Montana” series.
