Review: Chasing the Sun

Chasing the Sun (Blood Rose, #3)Chasing the Sun by Kaki Warner

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Concludes the trilogy. Singer Daisy Etheridge is on the run (do you sense a theme here?); even though things are looking up for her professionally, she's shot a man who was trying to kidnap her toddler daughter and sell her to a brothel. So she seeks out her daughter's father's family for safety and money--not knowing that Jack Wilkins himself is back from Australia. And he doesn't recognize her, at least not until he looks at her breasts. But the Wilkins family is facing other perils--a horse flu, a played-out mine, and loans in the hands of their enemies. Can this couple, nay this whole extended family, find a happy resolution?

I really liked these books. I especially liked the way that Warner followed up with couples from the preceding books--not the delirious, full-of-sparkly-happy-perfection-and-1000-kids that some romance series portray, but couples growing and dealing with new problems together. I also liked the way that Warner dealt with the medical realities of the post-Civil-War era in New Mexico, including especially reproductive health. And the heroines all save themselves! Plus!

  1. Thanks for the kind words. I appreciate the support and it's always a treat to hear from happy readers. You've made my day!

  2. I'm looking forward to the next one!

  3. You've convinced me to check them out. It's been a long time since I've read a Western I liked. Though I did just order a collection of Carla Kelly's (!!!) from inter-lib. loan.
