Review: Open Country

Open Country (Blood Rose, #2)Open Country by Kaki Warner

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Second in the Blood Rose trilogy. Molly McFarlane is on the run with her dead sister's children, trying to protect them from a conspiracy of desperate ex-Confederates. After a train derailment, she enters into a sham marriage with the unconscious and apparently-dying inventor/mine owner Hank Wilkins, so she can get the railroad death benefits for widows. But when it appears Hank might survive, Molly--a former military nurse--makes sure he recovers--even though it will mean entering into a charade that is bound to disillusion him. Really good--even though the initial premise is far-fetched, Warner makes it work.
