Review: Deep Trouble by Mary Connealy
Get ready for a Grand Canyon tour de force by award-winning author Mary Connealy. Gabe Lasley and Shannon Dysart are an unlikely pair. He’s an aimless wanderer who wants nothing other than to be left alone. She’s a fearless female determined to find a city of gold. When they are forced together the mayhem begins. As they set out to find the treasure, trouble is hot on their trail. Will the dream of gold color every decision Shannon makes? Will Gabe fail yet another helpless female in his life?
Drifter Gabe Lansley finds himself the rescuer of a treasure hunter obsessed with finding a city of gold in the Grand Canyon. Shannon Dysart is on a quest to prove her father’s research is factual. Can they avoid villains who are after her map and find love along the way?
Mary Connealy writes romantic comedy with cowboys. She is a Christy Award finalist and a Carol Award winner. She is the author of the Lassoed in Texas Trilogy, the Montana Marriage Trilogy, and the Sophie's Daughters Series.
Mary lives on a Nebraska ranch with her husband, Ivan, and has four grown daughters: Joslyn (married to Matt), Wendy, Shelly (married to Aaron), and Katy. And she is the grandmother of two beautiful grandchildren.

It's a bit of a historical mystery, a bit of a western, a bit of a romance novel, it's quirky and funny and it's a novel of faith. I cannot say that I have read a novel similar to this before. I enjoyed the setting as I have always loved the four corners area. The author Mary Connealy is obviously as impressed with the majesty of the Grand Canyon as much as I am. It was not a complicated story but it was an enjoyable, light read. I found the characters to be somewhat frivolous and unrealistic at times. Gabe Lasley and Shannon Dysart are a stereotypical mismatched couple who of course find love as well as the true meaning of everything at the end.
You can search for earthly things like gold, but the real treasure is finding everlasting salvation with our heavenly Father. A good light read to pass away the hours.
