Do all the books take place in the same town or is there no real connection between the books? I'm only 100ish pages into Petticoat Ranch and the descriptions for the next two books don't seem to have any connections.

It could be I just am not far enough in yet to have met all the characters. Usually once I'm this far in when starting a series and read the summaries of the future books in the series, I can make a connection.

If I'm right, are all her books like this? In a series but not really connected, so not necessary to read in order because there won't be a mention of the last book's couple?

Thanks to anyone who can answer!

The first 2 books (Petticoat Ranch and Calico Canyon) take place in Mosqueros TX and have some of the same characters. The 3rd book (Gingham Mountain) takes place in Sour Springs TX. The heroine of book 2 (Grace) is a friend of the heroine of book 3 (Hannah) but I didn't see much interaction between them until the end of the book. Not sure if the author's other series' are like this since this is the only one I have read.

Thanks! I bet her other books are like that too. The synopses just don't give the direct connection like a lot of series do.

ETA: I finally got far enough to see the connection. It was until about page 120. I'll have to be more patient next time! :P
