Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Warner brings her Blood Rose trilogy (Pieces of Sky; Open Country) to a satisfying conclusion with this sweet 19th-century western. To support her daughter, Desiree, and fund her dream of being a professional singer, Daisy Etheridge travels from San Francisco to New Mexico to seek help from the family of the man who left her alone and pregnant. Born wanderer Jack Wilkins gets the surprise of his life when he finds Daisy at the family ranch with the daughter he never knew he had. Jack persuades Daisy to stay, but she worries that he'll leave her and Desiree again. Despite the slow pace and easily dispatched villains, fans of the series will enjoy another visit to the Wilkins clan, while new readers are sure to admire Warner's vivid descriptions of love and life in the land of enchantment. (Jan.)

    Overall Rating: 3.85 // Action: 3.0 / Emotion: 4.5 / Romance: 3.

    Overall Rating: 3.85 // Action: 3.0 / Emotion: 4.5 / Romance: 3.0 / Sensuous: 1.0 / Suspense: 2.0 // Historical Flavor: 4.0 // Laughter: 5 // Tears: 7 / Teary: 5

    Chasing The Sun: 3.85:
    An attention grabbing, interest keeping read even though it did not carry the same powerful punch as the two previous books in the series.  This book is definitely not a standalone read, but needs to be read only after reading the previous two books of the trilogy.  This book features Brady and Jessica (Pieces of Sky) and Hank and Molly (Open Country), who grow right along with Jack and Daisy.  The three brothers finally find acceptance and a resolution of their differences with each other in their own unique way.

    Hero: 3.0:
    Andrew Jackson "Jack" Wilkins: Warner did a great job of explaining why this carefree, world-traveling youngest brother decided to charm his way through life because it was the only way he could figure out how to live in the shadow to two such imposing big brothers.  Even though Jack is the one brother out of the three that you would invite to a party, his tendency to wander made it difficult for this homebody to identify with him.

    Heroine: 3.0:
    Daisy Etheridge: Warner did not develop the background details of this stubborn, hard-headed, strong-willed heroine in a manner that created a sympathetic link between the reader and Daisy.  Although it was easy to admire Daisy's perseverance and her efforts to follow her dream, her avowals that she longer loved Jack didn't ring true.

    Story Line: 3.5:
    Warner did a phenomenal job of entertaining readers by reuniting all the Wilkins brothers and their wives back at the RosaRoja Ranch so they could finally come to terms with their marked differences in personalities.  The romance that developed between Jack and Daisy seemed to take a second chair to the interaction between all the members of the cast.

    Action: 3.0:
    Warner knows how to draw readers quickly into her stories by opening with a bit of exciting action and adventure sequences before she gets down to the meat of the story, which definitely slows down the excitement aspect of the story.  However, the inclusion of a couple of villains and a horse flu epidemic kept the story from dragging.

    Emotion: 4.5:
    One of the skills at which Warner is so gifted is her ability to create an emotional connection between the reader and the characters featured on the pages of her books.  Warner did bring forth tears and laughter during the telling of Jack and Daisy's story, but they were not what one would expect.  Most of the tears shed in this book were brought forth whenever Elena was interacting with the main characters.

    Romance: 3.0:
    The romance that developed between Jack and Daisy was a bit lackluster for two simple reasons.  First, Daisy had already fallen in love with Jack three years ago (and even though she convinced herself she no longer loved Jack, she didn't convince readers).  Second, Jack's attitude towards Daisy and love was too lackadaisical.  He couldn't have the woman he had loved his entire life, so why not tie himself to a woman he had apparently physically loved (his daughter being proof positive).

    Sensuous: 1.0:
    Warner has expressed her feelings on writing graphically entertaining love scenes, but even the thrill of the mutual lustful attraction between Jack and Daisy was missing from this book.  The passion and fire in the few kisses that Jack bestowed upon Daisy was absent.  And the one scene where Daisy decided she would be with Jack was even less detailed than in her previous books.  Sorry, but for a romance book to be truly outstanding, it needs to include spicy, heated love scenes!

    Suspense: 2.0:
    Although there were a couple of villains featured during the telling of the Wilkins Family story, the suspenseful aspect to the book was minimal.  Although the villains did add to the interest of the story line, the suspenseful aura of the story was not a necessary factor for the story to flow smoothly.

    Historical Flavor: 4.0:
    Warner is truly gifted when it comes to painting a picture of the countryside of the New Mexico Territory during 1873.  It is obvious that Warner has done her research and has a good grasp on the nuances of what it was like to live during this time period.

    Secondary Characters: 4.5:
    Warner's talent at creating detailed secondary characters that add a hearty flavor to the story is present in this final book of the trilogy.  The addition of Brady, Jessica, Hank, Molly, and, particularly, Sister Elena Maria Ramirez to the story are what made this book an emotional and fascinating read.
