Genre: Christian Historical Romance

Collin Mason has secrets of his own. And his family isn’t short on drama either, not with his troublemaking twin and an older brother about to get hitched. But he’s the only one who sees the real Stella—and that she needs help.

About the Author

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?


Interview with Lacy

Share something your readers wouldn’t know about you.

I took ballet lessons for thirteen years—from ages three to sixteen. I love music and I love to dance. I sometimes dance around the house (much to my kids’ embarrassment).

If you had to describe yourself in three words, what would they be?




What has been your favorite part of the publishing journey?

I love the first viewing of a brand new cover. Often I get the cover before the book is written and I love looking at the representation so much that I’ll often have it open in a different window while I’m writing. Talk about inspiration! Right now, I keep looking at the cover for A Trail Untamed, the next book in this series. The kitty gets me every time!

Can you share with us something about the book that isn’t in the blurb?

There is an item riding on Stella’s wagon that someone is hiding and is the reason she’s on the run—but she has no idea the person stole it.

Where can readers find out more about you and your books?

The best place to find up-to-date info is on my newsletter. Readers can subscribe here: and even get a free book.

Second best place is my website

Any current or upcoming projects you’d like to tell us about?

I am currently working on the final book in the Cowboy Fairytales series. A reunion/second chance romance for two beloved characters who started the whole series. And a book of my heart. I can’t wait to share it with my readers.

    I am really looking forward to reading this book. It sounds so good. I have 2 sisters and a brother that are still living. I lost a baby sister and brother when they were newborns. Thank you for this opportunity.

    I’ll be interested in how the characters’ position in their family birth order will be reflected in their actions and personalities.
