"Don't you think this counts as drastic, McCormick?"
Jimmy Cochran has never had much in the way of luck. After being chased off his land, he ends up a drifter with no place to call his own. And no real desire to either. That is until he meets Adelaide O'Hara and ends up as the leader for the wagon train she's on headed to Toledo. But the past has a way of catching up with a man and Jimmy has found that perhaps he has more to lose than he thought.
My Opinion: I really enjoyed the story in this book. Good twists and turns to it with just enough spice to mix up your traditional western theme. Jimmy was a good, strong character who was reliable and slightly mysterious at the same time. Adelaide was feisty but sweet. There wasn't too much concentration on them falling in love, but they did respond well together. There were a lot of side characters, but they were all nicely "default" characters so you didn't get too confused (aka, you knew they were good or bad and that was most of their purpose). I would have liked it to be a little more flushed out though with greater detail and smoother flow. I felt like it could have been a longer and fuller book.
I received a copy of this book to review. No other compensation was given. The summary and opinion are 100% my own.
