loving the mysterious texan coverTitle: Loving the Texas Mystery Woman
Series: Garrison’s Law, Book 5
Author: Mary Connealy
Release Date: January 2019
Genre: Gothic Romance

A woman wakes up in bed with a dead man and no memory—at all.

A stranger drags her away and offers her an alibi. The trouble is, if he’s her alibi, then she’s his. And he freely admits he’s got plenty of reasons to want his cousin Victor dead.

She learns her name is Lanny Cole. She’s living in a derelict old mansion they call The Devil’s Nest, with a whole family full of people who look capable of murder. Her amnesia is caused by an ugly blow to the head. Whoever hit her, killed Victor, then tucked her into bed with the now-dead Victor hoping she’d be arrested for murder.

She is forced to trust her rescuer, Devereau Grey, her alibi…who is more family with the Garrisons than with the Devereaus. In fact, through Grey’s connections, Case Garrison is the law on the mainland nearest the Devil’s Nest.

Grey has come home to tear open the corrupt heart of his family and find who’s stealing money from the Devereau Trust. His main suspect is dead and every member of his family has a motive for the murder and the theft, including himself, and Lanny Cole, who foolishly took a job with the Devereau family’s cold, manipulative matriarch.

And then another body turns up, and another. They need to get away, but a hurricane cuts off the island roads to a port that leads to violent seas.

Grey and Lanny are trapped in the Devil’s Nest. While they fight for their lives, family history comes to light that provides a motive for killing Lanny, and her research…if she could just remember it…might reveal the hiding place for a three-hundred-year old chest of pirate’s treasure.

  1. Anne Rightler

    Sounds like a fun scavenger hunt. Thank you for the opportunity. Although I must admit, I could not find today’s clue!

  2. Kay Garrett

    Each and every book in the Garrison’s Law contemporary romantic suspense series by Mary Connealy sound amazing. I would love the opportunity to read them ALL!

    The Scavenger Blog Hunt sounds like fun. Will be entering every day and fingers crossed.

  3. Trixi

    I love Mary Connealy’s books! Haven’t had a chance to read these, thanks for the gift card giveaway!

  4. Myra Ball

    I’ve read reviews at some of the other sites on the tour and the series sounds funny as well as entertaining. My favorite books no matter what genre always have some lighter moments. I also was expressed that each book seems to be unique and not follow a cookie cutter pattern that some series falls into. Mary Connelly is a new author for me but I’ll be trying this series. It seems my wish list just gets longer.

  5. Paula Shreckhise

    Love Mary Connealy. This will be interesting to read a slightly different group of books from her!

  6. Shakeia Rieux

    I haven’t read any of the books by the author, but I definitely want to read the books from the Garrison’s Law series.
