Trail of Hope by Merry Farmer review

Callie Lewis is alone on the Oregon Trail. After her brother’s death, she has been left to fend for herself on a journey she never wanted to take. Her only hope for safety and a life at the end of the road is to become a trail bride and wed grieving widower John Rye. But John is harboring secrets that could end their hasty marriage before it has a chance to begin.

When a vicious tornado wakes John from the stupor the death of his wife left him in, he is ready to embrace Callie and the new life they could have together. But John is not the only one with designs on his new wife. Miles away from civilization, in a wagon train bristling with secrets and suspicion, John must catch a thief, fend off his rival, and reclaim his life to build the future Callie deserves.

In their darkest moments will they bring each other hope?

My thoughts:

Callie is left alone on the trail after her bother and his family pass away.  She needs a protector to finish the trip.  She narrows it down to two men.  She finally makes her choice with is John Rye a widower.  Just 6 months before his wife and son passed away.  They help each other in their grief and they marry.

Callie knows John still thinks of his wife and but wants more as she has started to fall for him.  Crazy things start to happen on the trail and John protest Callie from the miners and a so called Preacher who seems very strange. He is not what he seems.

The characters interacted well and I loved the plot.  The scenes are remarkable and you can picture yourself on the wagon train with all these folks.  It does het a bit hot between Callie and John which brings the story all together.  I will be looking for more books by this author.
