The Major's Daughter

 

The Major's Daughter by Regina Jennings finds Caroline Adams returning to Fort Reno after living in Society for a while. She and her friend Amber are just days away from the land rush of the Oklahoma territory. Being eager to strike out on her own, Caroline has it in her mind to claim land, and establish an Inn for travelers to the growing territory.

Things go a little awry when Caroline claims the land that Frisco Smith had been improving over the years, and had set his sight on claiming it to establish a town.

Things get complicated when some men, claiming they were the first to arrive, start manipulating their towns politics. Frisco, having managed to obtain a small plot in this town, uses his law degree to settle differences, while he still tries to claim the land Caroline staked.

I really enjoyed this story. Not knowing much about how the west was opened up, it was enlightening to see how things might have been in 1889.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from Net Galley and the publisher. All views expressed are my honest opinion.
