I enjoyed getting acquainted with Rose and Duncan McMurray, the main heroine and hero of the story, but I also loved the side stories of Abe Henderson and his quiet schoolteacher, Miss Norman, Victoria and her loving judge Killian, and the mysterious Stitch. I also got a kick out of Hallie, the not-so-innocent seamstress!
There is a lot of action in this quick-stepping story, but Thomas manages to keep all the players in their proper places, and the tale moving forward to a satisfying conclusion. Oh, and there is plenty of romance as well.
This is the sixth book in this series, but new readers will be able to pick up on the back-story of the characters quickly and be able to enjoy the story with ease.
If you enjoy a fast-moving, well written story, set in the romantic Old West, then you'll enjoy Jodi Thomas' lastest "Whispering Mountain" tale, "Wild Texas Rose." I highly recommend it!
