Book by Rachelle J. Christensen
Review by Bruce Carroll
Silver Cascade Secrets promises to be a “romantic suspense novella” and it delivers in all three categories. Christensen kept me turning pages (well, digital pages), and I can’t say if I was more determined to see Jillian and Travis finally connect or to discover who killed Travis’ brother-in-law and why. The murder was never solved, and as Jillian gets closer to decoding the mysterious letters Craig left behind, the she could be endangering herself. Travis seems like the ideal man for Jillian, but what if he was involved in Craig’s death somehow? And even if he is the man for Jillian, Caleb, her ex, comes crawling back begging for just one more chance.
Christensen has delivered a book which offers genuine romance while still remaining “clean.” You won’t find any graphic sex depicted. And the suspense involves murder and cover-up, yet borrows heavily from the “cozy” genre. I would be perfectly comfortable with my 13-year-old reading Silver Cascade Secrets.
Mystery and suspense mixed with romance in an easy, short read – what’s not to like? I look forward to reading more from Rachelle J. Christensen.
Silver Cascade Secrets is a 2017 winner of the Author’s Choice Award (Novella).
