It’s been a long time since I’ve read a western and this book seemed to have all the elements – breathtaking landscapes, cowboys and cowgirls, an epic journey, and dangerous family secrets. It’s definitely an adventurous read. It’s not exactly the “old” wild west, but the setting still draws you in. Unfortunately, though, I still struggled with a handful of things in this story. There were so many people and names that I got lost in the introductions and the multiple POVs. The characters were vivid and unique, but I didn’t get as attached to them as I’d hoped. So much happened in this story that it became lots of quick snapshots for me. There wasn’t enough time for me to soak up the details and dwell in the scene. Things moved quickly and sometimes pushed me ahead sooner than I would have liked. I had a hard time following the plot at times. And there wasn’t much romance at all. Not that every story has to have a love story, but I admit I’m a fan of them. ;) So I missed that aspect. The hints of romance just weren’t quite enough for me. But I suspect more of that is to come in the rest of the series. My favorite part about the book was the journey in the latter half of the story. It was unique and adventurous, with colorful, historical places added in. It made me want to be along for the road trip! ;) I couldn’t guess how the story would wrap up, but Wind in the Wires ended nicely, leaving just enough clever questions to invite readers to return for the next installment in the series. Thank you to Bly Books for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

The term, "wind in the wires," refers to the music that sometimes happens when all the elements are just right: the capricious wind blowing across barbed wire strung just right. That describes Reba's journey through the secrets of her past. Bly rolls out just enough hints and foreshadowing to keep me going through twists and turns I never expected. Bly's character development is strong. Not only Reba, but almost every character has layers and depth, down to little Becky. And there are a lot of characters in this novel. It might be helpful to make a list as you go, but all of them have a part in making "the wires sing." I think my favorite part of Wind in the Wires is how Bly paints her setting. I can feel the hot desert wind and see the painted desert floor. I feel as though I finally took that "Out West" trip. And I'm looking forward to the next book in the Trails of Reba Cahill. My thanks to the author for a copy in exchange for my fair in impartial review.
