In A Relentless Search For Two Brutal Murderers I m enjoying this whole series but this book struck me a littlethan the previous five I ve read so far Perhaps because some of this story was so

like it s tying up a few loose ends from its predecessor Texas , and preparing us anew for a new drama in the next book Colorado Like falling back into an old comfortable chair, the 6th book in the Wagons West series added new life to the series Several characters from the other books take center stage in telling mostly about the gold rush years with California becoming a state This, so far, has been the darkest of the series which is why I think I liked it better Just wish, as I always say, that these books didn t have such romance novel covers on them because they are so much Even though this is a western and predictable, it tells the struggles the pioneers had on the Oregon Trail and settling in the states around Oregon Easy read. Several familiar characters are back in this sixth book in the Wagons West series, where the action takes place mostly in San Francisco and the Sacramento Valley during the heydays of the gold rush Rick Miller is now the Sheriff in San Francisco, struggling to maintain law and order while on a private vendetta to capture two renegade rapists murderers after his wife Elisabeta falls victim to them in the opening of the book While we watched Rick and Elisabeta fall in love in the previous book, t Several familiar characters are back in this sixth book in the Wagons West series, where the action takes place mostly in San Francisco and the Sacramento Valley during the heydays of the gold rush Rick Miller is now the Sheriff in San Francisco, struggling to maintain law and order while on a private vendetta to capture two renegade rapists murderers after his wife Elisabeta falls victim to them in the opening of the book While we watched Rick and Elisabeta fall in love in the previous book, this time around he has become a detached hardenedthan he was already emotionless man He grieves for Elisabeta, but the grief never really comes off the pages to touch the reader.Danny and Heather Taylor decide to travel to California with Randy Gregg, to prospect for gold Their plan is to be smart and while trying their luck panning for gold, to also buy some land and harvest it, so that whatever happens they have the land to fall back on After being told by Melissa Austin that she will never marry him, Chet Harris also takes off for California and gets swept up with gold fever, and after striking it rich he lives a life of excess.Two new characters are also introduced Ralph Hamilton is an attorney who picks up and travels to California after being jilted by his fianc e He has no intention of trying to find gold, but he figures there will be a need forandattorneys as California s population grows and it is admitted to statehood Along the way he adopts an orphan, Isaiah.Melissa and her newest beau join up with the Taylors and the Greggs to make the journey, but as soon as they arrive Melissa discovers that everything her lover has told her is a lie when he sells her to a pimp Okay, I know they weren t called pimps in those days, but Big George runs a saloon with a stable of whores, and Melissa becomes his star attraction.The characters all have their own separate storylines that criss cross with each other s The writing is often clich d and somewhat mediocre, and none of the characters have any emotional depth whatsoever There are several deaths throughout the book, some quite violent, but since we don t really connect with any of the characters, we don t mourn those who die From what I learned when Googling information on the author, the books are pretty historically accurate At times, it slike reading a slightly dry history book than a novel And if you re interested in the time period, then that s ok Sixth in the series This one was much better than the last few I had decided to stop reading them, glad I didn t.This book finds Lee and Cathy Blake at the Presidio in San Francisco They have their hands full with all the restless, lawless and hungry miners Melissa Austin becomes a prostitute in a busy saloon Heather and Danny Taylor have issues to work out in their marriage Chet Harris and his mining partner hit it big and become wealthy Whip Hold visits California from Oregon to try to Sixth in the series This one was much better than the last few I had decided to stop reading them, glad I didn t.This book finds Lee and Cathy Blake at the Presidio in San Francisco They have their hands full with all the restless, lawless and hungry miners Melissa Austin becomes a prostitute in a busy saloon Heather and Danny Taylor have issues to work out in their marriage Chet Harris and his mining partner hit it big and become wealthy Whip Hold visits California from Oregon to try to convince Melissa to leave her lifestyle Rick Martin becomes Sheriff of Sacramento County Noticed a few typos The plot was mostly pretty good and it was easy to keep track of the characters Can be read as a stand alone or as part of the series Some liberties were taken with the historical timeline. Better than Texas.The characters seem a little better written in this one, but the inconsistencies still drive me crazy, like calling Whip an old man when he s only about ten years older then the first book, when he s in his early 20 s He s young enough to have a second child, but yet he s constantly described as feeble and old yet he can still do miraculous things
