Opal is the tenth book in the Brides Of The Oregon Trail series. The plot captured my attention from the beginning of the journey of the trail. The story moved quickly; the transitions from one section to the next was flawless and smooth. The secondary characters were eye-catching and stole several scenes. Opal is a magnificent, sparkling story of a couple learning to trust and love after being hurt. This second-chance love story will captivate and leave you wanting more!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through the author. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
