Christian Historical Romance is a favorite genre of mine. Trail of Secrets by Lacy Williams is Book 2 in the Wagon Train Matches series. I had the honor of reading book 1 in this series and I was excited to read this book! 

Stella Fairfax is the oldest of 3 sisters and has always been the one to provide for and protect the family. Stella decides to pack up the family and head West, as the family faces a dangerous situation where they currently are. She decides to disguise herself as "Stephen" for the Wagon Train Journey West. Collin Mason is also on this Wagon Train and he befriends Stella. He also discovers the true Stella, even under disguise. Collin's family has a lot of drama of their own, but he is the one who truly sees and cares for Stella and understands that she needs help. Collin begins helping Stella as they are still in danger. Stella wanted to resist his help, but she agrees to let him help her and her sisters. Will Collin, Stella and her sisters make it West and to Safety? Will Stella and Collin have more than a friendship? 

Wagon Train stories are always so GREAT to read and this series just keeps getting better! Stella seems to be a GREAT sister for providing for and protecting her sisters. She has secrets she is hiding and for good reason. Collin is an AMAZING and Caring person. I really LOVE that he insists on protecting Stella and her sisters. He knows family life can be complicated, as he lives in a complicated family life. The book has many twists and turns and it truly keeps the reader intrigued. I finished the book in about 4hrs, I was so captivated by the storyline, that I could not put it down! I am looking forward to reading more books in this series! AWESOME BOOK!



Lacy Williams wishes her writing career was more like what you see in Hallmark movies: dreamy brainstorming from a French chateau or a few minutes at the computer in a million-dollar New York City penthouse. In reality, she’s up before the sun, putting words on the page before her kids wake up for the day. Those early-morning and late-night writing sessions add up, and Lacy has published sixty books in a decade, first with a big five publisher and then as an indie author. When she needs to refill the well, you can find Lacy birdwatching, gardening, biking with the kiddos, or walking the dog. Find tons of bonus scenes and reader extras by becoming a VIP reader at .

Exploring birth order in fictional characters


Are you a firstborn? Middle child? Baby of the family? I’m not versed in all the psychology or science of birth order but I can tell you that I knew my second-born had a different personality from my first-born within a few hours of his birth.


I am two years older than my brother and four years older than my sister. We’re all three different. I get along with my siblings in different ways. We enjoy doing different activities together.


I love reading books with strong sibling ties. And in my books, I often like to explore the relationships between siblings. I like to play with the dynamics between brothers or have squabbling sisters (that truly love each other, deep down). And my new book TRAIL OF SECRETS is no different!


Heroine Stella is an oldest child. When her father died, she took responsibility for her two sisters. She kept the family together (even in an unconventional way) and she’s going to get the three of them to Oregon. No matter what.


Hero Collin is a middle child and a twin. He’s a peacemaker and a protector. And he drives Stella a little bit crazy with his ability to always look on the bright side. Their personalities clash but only in the best way.


After a tornado ravages the wagon train, Collin and Stella have to work together to survive and rescue family members. Can their differences be strengths when they partner up?
