Let me start by saying when I chose to read this book it was for the supernatural aspect. What I got was a historical romance. The Trail to Love is book 4 in the Soul Mate Tree Series this book is by Tina Susedik. Each book is a stand alone and written by a different Author.
Now for my feelings on this book. Pretty much from the minute I picked it up I could not put it down. This book gripped me. I fell in love with the characters, their plight, the rough hard land. Pretty much everything, even the bad guy. The supernatural only showed up a few times in the book but I did not miss it at all. Tina Susedik has done an amazing job with this book and I will be reading more from her and this series.
In the book Jack Billabard has lost his wife and son in childbirth. He feels his life has ended. Wanting to put some distance between the memories of his wife and himself he rides to the top of the mountain on his property, there a tree appears, it brings with it a vision of a woman and child, not his wife and child though. Then the tree disappears again. Jack decides to leave Laramie and work as a guide on the Oregon Tail.
As a teenager Sarah Nickelson lost her parents and married the first man to come along. Not knowing her husband to be was really a mean drunk and just wanted her for her inheritance. One winter night there's a knock on the door letting her know her husband has died in a accident she is alone with a child. Her In-Laws are taking her childhood home since she was married it all became her husbands. Sarah finds an advertisement for a mail order bride, and with no where else to go decides to set out on the Oregon Trail to go to the man who sent out the advertisement.
From the minute Jack sees her he can't believe his eyes that this is the woman and child in the trees vision. To Sarah Jack looks familiar. Can the tree be write about this being each other second chance?
I received this book for my honest review from the Author and Goddess Fish Promotions. My thoughts of this book are my own.
