Christmas Double Cross

GIVEAWAY
BAILEY, JODIE
CHRISTMAS DOUBLE CROSS

Dead Ringer

Undercover Texas Ranger Colter Blackthorn's convinced Danielle Segovia is really a wanted criminal -- until she's nearly kidnapped right in front of him. Now Colter must keep her out of the clutches of the notorious drug cartel leader whose traitor sister is a dead ringer for Danielle. The drug czar wants the drugs he thinks the pretty shop owner stole from him. And with the younger brother Danielle is raising dragged into the crosshairs, Colt has to find a way to protect them both. But a showdown at Christmas -- with Danielle as bait -- may be the only way to make sure they all survive the holidays.

Texas Ranger Holidays: A Season of Danger

My Review:

They say everyone has a twin somewhere which is all well and good unless your 'twin' happens to be the sister of drug cartel lord. Everyone is convinced Danielle is Adriana Garcia -- even law enforcement at first. Lots of tangled webs to weave through before Danielle is cleared. At least, the good guys know who she is but the bad guys? They are still coming on strong. Danger and intrigue clash with an inconvenient romance and make this a stellar read.

Christmas Double Cross is the second book in the Texas Ranger Holidays: A Season of Danger continuity series but I had no trouble reading it as a standalone. And I have no idea how I missed the first book, Thanksgiving Protector by Sharon Dunn last month. I have to play catch up now, because I think I'll understand Colt a bit more once I've read that first book. He's pretty hard on himself over something that happened in the past and I have a feeling it happened in Thanksgiving Protector. I'll have to read it to be sure. But it keeps him wary and super sensitive and brings some delicious tension to the story.

  1. You really must read Thanksgiving Protector, Kav! And then afterwards, Texas Christmas Defender by Elizabeth Goddard! A great series so far and an awesome over-arching mystery between the three. I have yet to read Elizabeth's installment, but it's slated for December review :-)

    These ladies sure know how to write!

  9. Wow! Another must read! Thanks for your review and giveaway. I truly have an identical twin and sure don't need another! Most people that we are close to can tell us apart but some even family that we don't see often still can't and it will probably be that way all of our lives. Thanks for your review and giveaway.
