Now on to the book!
Journey the Transcontinental Railroad along with nine unlikely couples who encounter all the dangers and disappointments of traveling the rails in the late 1800s. From sight-seeing excursions to transports toward new lives, from orphan trains to circus trains, can romances develop into blazing love in a world of cold, hard steel?
Here's our train. Actually, it's THE train. The Honeymoon Express, Susanne's novella, was inspired by a real-life train trip in 1876 called the Jarrett-Palmer Express. This is what it looked like:
|Currier & Ives, the Lightning Express Leaves the Junction|
|Original ticket for the Lightning Express, from Collectors Weekly|
|Welcome aboard. May I offer you a cup of punch? How about some dessert?|
Can a jilted bride and a mysterious frontiersman thrown together on a trip meant for honeymooners solve a crime--and find love--before the end of the line?
|Heroine Ellen needs a fresh start.|
|Ellen is a telegrapher|
Susanne Dietze is the proud daughter of a railfan and the author of almost a dozen historical romances. You can learn more about Susanne (but not her dad) on her website, www.susannedietze.com.
