Aiming For Love by Mary Connealy

Book review of Aiming For Love by Mary Connealy (Bethany House) by papertapepins

When Strangers Intrude
on Three Wild Sisters' Hidden Mountain Life,
Their World Will Never Be the Same.

Josephine 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?

Josephine and her sisters have pretty much raised themselves, since their parents, and then grandparents died when they were quite young. They've had little to no contact with the outside world. The oldest sister gained her fear of the world below their mountain hideaway from her Grandma and has always taught the younger ones that nothing good can come from there. However, when the outside world intrudes on their mountain they need to decide whether to turn their backs when people need help, or to take a risk and help. 

This is a fun story with shades of fairytale woven throughout. It's a little farfetched, but just close enough to reality to still get lost in the story. There were definitly a few points though, where I felt it went a little too far out. Swinging on vines? Really? Jo is definitly my favourite sister but I am looking forward to reading the next installment.
