Love mystery? Adventure? Suspense? Romance? A historical setting? Why settle for just one type when you can have it all?
I’m not claiming to be the first writer to blend genres. Many books have combined a pair of genres like romance and suspense, a paranormal time-travel, or mystery and adventure. When you combine more than three, however, you’re in for an exciting ride. And Double Crossing, a twist of True Grit — on the Iron Horse of 1869 — is an exciting adventure with murder, suspense, a hint of romance and mystery all in one book.
DOUBLE CROSSING – 2012 Western Writers of America Spur Award for Best First Novel! Check out the reviews here.
After Lily Granville’s father is murdered, she heads west on the newly opened transcontinental railroad to track the killer to California. She must retrieve the deed to the gold mine the man stole and see justice done. Despite hiring a renegade Texan to protect her on the journey, Lily soon realizes she is no longer the hunted—but the prey.
