A Ranger's Trail by Darlene Franklin

In 1875 Buck Morgan rode into Mason County with the Texas Rangers to quell the violence stirred up by the actions a vigilantly mob. The Hoo Doo (or bad luck) War erupted as suspected cattle rustlers were murdered by an angry mob.  Former Ranger, Scott Cooley, gathers a gang to seek vengeance for the murders. 

Suspected of cattle rustling, Leta Derrick's husband was murdered by the mob a year earlier. Now she is siding with the rogue ranger, Scott Cooley and refuses to help Buck Morgan stem the tide of violence.

Will their actions fuel the fire of vengeance? Or will Buck and Leta strike an accord that leads to more than just peace?

The fourth Texas Trails novel, A Ranger’s Trail by Darlene Franklin takes an interesting look at Texas’ Mason County range war. At the center of all the action stand Texas Ranger Buck Morgan, who is the son of Jud and Wande of Lone Star Trail, and Leta Denning, a widow because of the range war. As they deal with the challenges set before them - prejudice and hatred, doubt and faith, the past and the future - Buck and Leta develop a heartwarming romance. The combination of history and romance in A Ranger’s Trail is done well and interestingly, and I enjoyed this addition to the series. Fans of the series will want to be sure to pick up this novel.

Thanks to Moody Publishers, I received a copy of A Ranger’s Trail and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
