A long, long five minutes later, Leta slumped to the the floor.
Only then did she become aware of Ricky crouching beside her,
staring in horror out the window.
A bitter beginning starts with a death. Not only is her husband dead after being indicted of cattle rustling, but Leta Denning had to witness alongside her six-year-old son her husband being hung by his murderers. Only her duty to her teenage brother, son, and farm keep Leta from wallowing in the memory of her husband. That, and revenge on her husband's killers.
Enter Buck Morgan. A Texas Ranger who can never see himself settling down into ranch life. What he does not expect is to find is a strong independent widow . . . and that she would completely lasso his heart.
Leta laid a bouquet of sunflowers and daisies on top
of the two graves in the family plot.
The Texas Trails, Morgan Family series from River North has been an exciting adventure.
The exciting accounts of wars and cattle rustling will keep many readers engaged for hours. The only downer for me is that A Ranger's Trail is extremely involved in the romantic notions of a recent widow and a Texas Ranger.
I loved all the characters, especially Leta. She was strong, only letting her weaknesses to be shown in front of people she trusted.
The Texas Rangers were on the case of her murdered husband. Right?
A Ranger's Trail is the fourth book in The Texas Trail series. A good read, although I enjoyed some of the previous journeys better.
