Lydia: Brides Of The Oregon Trail Book 2 (Historical Romance) by Cynthia Woolf

Lydia Granger thought she left a life of struggle and poverty behind. As a mail-order bride on her way to Oregon City, a secure future is assured. But when the wagon train arrives in Oregon City, she discovers her fiancé is dead and her dream of a safe future is shattered.

Moments after her dream is stolen from her, a gift arrives. Her wealthy fiancé left her everything he had. Life for Lydia should be easy, but the truth is much darker and more terrifying than she could imagine, for her fiancé’s death was no accident, and the man who took his life wants everything, all the dead man’s riches.

Detective Max Caldwell lost his wife to a brutal killer, a man who will stop at nothing to take what he wants from the world. He killed in Chicago. He killed in Oregon. It’s only a matter of time before he strikes again. Max seeks not only justice, but vengeance for his wife’s death and has no qualms about asking the innocent Lydia to help him hunt for her fiancé’s murderer. Because Lydia, and her inheritance, are the bait Max will use to lure evil into the light. Too late he realizes Lydia, with her soft heart, beautiful smile, and collection of rescued animals is not only powerful enough to take down a killer, but she just might melt the ice around his heart.

“Love this book by Cynthia as with all of her books she rocks her books out of the park. This book is about Lydia going on the wagon train with her sister and brother-in-law. Lydia was supposed to marry Mr. Mosley and she found out that he had suddenly died. I think she was surprised that he had left her everything including her house which was perfect for all her animals that she rescued. Long story short is that this is a great read and fast paced you can never go wrong with Cynthia’s books. Love this set of books.” Reviewed by Chris Linhart

About The Author: Cynthia Woolf is the award winning and best-selling author of more than thirty-three historical western romance books and two short stories with more books on the way.

Cynthia loves writing and reading romance. Her first western romance Tame A Wild Heart, was inspired by the story her mother told her of meeting Cynthia’s father on a ranch in Creede, Colorado. Although Tame A Wild Heart takes place in Creede that is the only similarity between the stories. Her father was a cowboy not a bounty hunter and her mother was a nursemaid (called a nanny now) not the ranch owner.

Cynthia credits her wonderfully supportive husband Jim and her great critique partners for saving her sanity and allowing her to explore her creativity.
