Santa Fe Woman, Wagon Wheel Series #1
I was really disappointed with this series. I am a big Gilbert Morris Fan, so when I began to read these books... The plots are the same. If I didn't know any better I would say Gilbert Morris didn't write these. There were no twists and turns. No mystery or suspense. It was 4 books with the same basic plot. One book was almost identical to his previous book Ride the Wild River. Very disappointed!

I enjoyed this book from the very begining. I love to read and christian romance is a sweeter side of reading. I was sucked into this book, I wished that the story would continue with their lives after they reach Santa Fe. HINT HINT! Mr. Gilbert Morris.

I just finished the book and it was good. If I like a book it is usually a three day read and this was. I like the way Gilbert Morris weaves the gospel into his stories. I am a fan of his and have read a lot of his books. I'm really interested in the western settings and the trail blazing pioneers. Some times I wish we could go back to those days. This story line shows that money and power are not everything and happiness can be found without it.

As much as I enjoyed this book, why do I feel deja vu when reading it? Is it because I've read this plot in several of Gilbert Morris's other books? I guess after over 200 books things start to blend together. I am 100% certain there have been characters named either Praise God or Revelation that go around asking people if they are believers in Jesus in other Morris books. And I know that the story about the guy who can't read, the woman teaches him, they end up getting married was used in book 6 of the House of Winslow series. I guess to a new reader of Morris this is not a big deal. I did enjoy this book very much, as I have his others. Once again there is a lot of historical fact researched for the story. I do enjoy learning while reading and since I enjoy American history, Morris' books are usually spot on about facts. I like mixing real events and people with fictional characters to show what could have happened, and it also gives a new way to look at history. I just felt the characters in this book were rather one dimensional and predictable. If you want a historical western story, this is a good book. However I would recommend Morris' CheneyDuvall series or the Appomattox Saga if you haven't read any of his books before.
