Historical Romantic Suspense
Rating: 4 Cups
Lily Granville’s life is about to get very complicated. Her father has just been murdered, but it has been made to look like suicide. She fears his death has to do with a deed to a mine he owns in California.
Lily sets out to find a killer. She is heading westward on the transcontinental railroad, certainly not a trip for a lady in 1869. Thank goodness she has a chaperone and a bodyguard of sorts.
What she does not expect is for things to become worse than they are.
With a scary train ride west through rough lands and two murders along the way, Lily is now in more danger than she thought, and just who can she trust?
What a hang on to your seat read. With greed taking the forefront, Double Crossing will keep you turning the pages. Mystery and suspense along the railroad of yesterday, Ms. Mims paints a picture of what life was like back then from one coast to the other. A dash of romance is peppered in, and this reader is curious to know just what will happen to the strong-willed Lily. Perhaps a sequel is in the works?
