Lily Rose Granville likes to sketch. When she tries to involve herself in her uncle’s mining business, she quickly learns not to interfere. After discovering that he intends to marry her to someone of his choice, Lily decides it is time to put a stop to his plans.
Years ago, Ace Diamond has taken money from Lily’s uncle and walked away, leaving the woman he loves behind. He has to find a way to defeat the malicious uncle who plans to destroy any happiness for Lily.
Lily remembers the three thousand dollars her uncle has given Ace. He takes it, leaves and she has not heard from him since. Years after, she wonders what has become of him. Does he still care about her? Ace has other things in mind. He wants to win Lily’s heart. When he returns to claim the woman he loves, they quickly learn her uncle will do anything to ruin her happiness, not to mention the recaptured love, if the two can’t stop him.
Double or Nothing is like a roller coaster experience. It carries the reader like a steady ride into the story, then bingo, it is off, fast and quick with twists and turns around every corner. The writing is tight, dialogue wonderfully constructed and well-developed characters who keep the audience engaged. Ms. Mims is an elegant storyteller. She incorporates a landscape the audience can visualize and crafts dialogue that can practically be seen on the player’s faces and conversations that grips the heart. This is a great tale of love and suspense.
