What Comes My Way by Tracie Peterson has Ella Fleming surprised when her brother, Robert shows up in Los Angeles in March of 1902 with Mara. Mara was Ella’s maid before she escaped from the Fleming Farm. Mara needed protection from Jefferson Spiby who was intent on taking her for his mistress. Robert is determined to uncover what their father is up to with Spiby. It is time for the truth to come out and, hopefully, get justice for August Reichert. Phillip DeShazer continues to drown his guilt over his father’s death with alcohol. Ella cares for Phillip, but he needs to overcome his addiction as well as forgive himself before they can have a relationship. Will Phillip and Ella get their happily ever after?
What Comes My Way by Tracie Peterson is the final book in the Brookstone Brides trilogy. I thought What Comes My Way was a satisfying conclusion to the series. This is a series of books that you need to read in order. Each book builds upon the previous one with the search for justice for the death of August Reichert running throughout all three books. Ella Fleming had to flee her family farm when Jefferson Spiby wanted her for his bride and her father would not protect her from the letch. Ella has been performing as a trick rider with the Brookstone Wild West Extravaganza with her friends, Mary Reichert and Lizzy Brookstone. Ella has come to care for Phillip DeShazer, but the tremendous guilt he feels regarding his part in his father’s death keeps him drinking copious quantities of alcohol. Ella reassures him the God will forgive his sins if only Phillip asks it. Unfortunately, Phillip is not ready. Mary is engaged to Chris Williams and they are planning their wedding. Lizzy and Wes are touring with the show at Rebecca Brookstone’s request. She wants them to keep an eye on Oliver. It is a good thing Lizzy is present because the new seamstress, Amanda Moore has sunk her claws into Oliver. Lizzy does not trust the seamstress who spends more time with Oliver than with a needle and thread. I thought What Comes My Way contained Tracie Peterson’s trademark writing along with strong female characters. Faith, prayer, forgiveness and trusting God are themes that run throughout the story. My favorite phrase is “Trust in God. He is our source of strength.” There is also danger and intrigue in the story. Jefferson Spiby is not about to go down quietly nor let Ella get away so easily. I was very pleased with how What Comes My Way ended. It was nice to see growth from the characters especially Philip. Family, friendship, and faith are the focus of What Comes My Way. Those readers who indulge in historical novels will enjoy the Brookstone Brides trilogy. What Comes My Way is a fulfilling historical novel with handsome horses, tremendous tricks, a malicious murderer, outrageous offenses, caring chums, and persistent Pinkerton agents.
What comes My Way is available through Amazon* (Amazon UK) as well as Christian Book Distributors, Barnes & Noble, and other major booksellers. The other two novels in the Brookstone Brides trilogy are Wherever You Go and When You Are Near. Secrets of My Heart is Tracie Peterson's next release. It is the first novel in the Willamette Brides series and comes out on March 3, 2020. Thank you for joining me today. I will be back next time to share my review of Friday Night Bites by Erin Johnson. It is a paranormal mystery featuring Jolene and Officer Peter Flint. I hope you have a stimulating day. Take care and Happy Reading!
