Finding Becky by Martha Rogers

Book Description:  Finding Becky is the third novel in the Winds Across the Prairie series.  Becky Haynes returns to Barton Creek after college with a new independent spirit that baffles her longtime friend Rob Frankston. Her new attitude toward her faith, family, and friends confuses her family. When a stranger moves into Barton Creek, Becky is flattered and taken in by the attentions of Geoff Kensington. As Oklahoma approaches statehood, strange accidents befall the citizens of Barton Creek. Rob has his suspicions concerning Geoff, but will he be able to find proof and convince Becky to return to the faith of her childhood before the town of Barton Creek is destroyed?

My Review: Once again Martha Rogers brings us a grand story that seems to be right out of the history books.
Becky Haynes is returning home after being gone to college for four years.  On the train home she meets a handsome man, Geoff Kingston.  Geoff is seemingly besotted with Becky and Becky likes the attention.  
But at the train station as everyone is meeting and greeting Becky, her long time friend, Rob Frankston, wants some time to greet Becky too but every Becky goes there is Geoff, too!
Rob can't figure Geoff out.  Rob "sees" right through Geoff and his slick ways but Becky and the others think Geoff is such a nice, handsome man.
When terrible things start to take place and the people of Barton Creek seem to be in peril and danger Rob knows he must find out what is going on.
This is a great historical read!  The reader isn't quite sure what Geoff's interest in Becky is either but like Rob wants to find out.  
There's suspense and mystery in all the "goings on" that makes this a hard read to put down!
