Praise for Double or Nothing
"You can't help but root for Lily Granville, Meg Mims's heroine from Double Crossing who is once again in over her head in Double or Nothing. Featuring murder, action, and a strong sense of time and place, this series will appeal to Western, romance and mystery fans, or those who just like a great read." —Six-time Spur Award winner, Johnny D. Boggs

And just when Ace finally whisks her away to safety in his arms, he is charged with murder. Well--Lily isn't about to stand for that! Appealing characters in an action-packed plot proves Mims has written the second winner in her "Double" series."
