Trail of Destiny by Merry Farmer is a good historical western romance. This well written book has amazing, lovable characters. Ms Farmer has added adventure, drama and spice to make an enjoyable book. Jarvis and Alice's story made for great reading. I enjoyed Trail of Destiny and look forward to reading more from Merry Farmer in the future. Trail of Destiny is book 5 in the Hot on the Trail Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
