DOUBLE JEOPARDY by Donna Schlacter, Reviewed by Paula Shreckhise

When Becky Campbell travels from New York City society to join her adventurous father at his silver mine in Colorado, she is sadly disappointed. She has to contend with the fact that he was murdered and she has little means or know how to keep up the mine. She is like a fish out of water but tries very hard to make a go of things with the help of two hired hands and a handsome farmer, Zeke Graumann.
The author captures the quirkinesses and struggles of Miss Becky and the honesty and steadfastness of our hero Zeke. With humor and colloquial sayings and an easy faith thread, this book is lots of fun. But the plot thickens when “accidents” happen at the mine. Who is out to undermine the mine? And when a mix-up sends Becky’s mother on a long train ride to join her...... she needs a groom FAST!

See what antics abound in this well-written story of the old west.

BackCover Blurb:
Mining, murder—and a mock marriage?

New York City socialite Becky Campbell inherited more than a speck of her father’s wanderlust. Now his murder bequeaths her a mystery, a ramshackle homestead, and a silver mine.

Zeke Graumann signs on as Becky’s foreman to keep his portion of his family’s ranch. He shares the workers’ reservations about a woman boss, especially one who burns water and prances around in dungarees. Even though she did look awful good in the dungarees.

Then a series of accidents add threat to tension. Can Becky trust Zeke, find her father’s killer, and turn her mine into a profitable venture? Will Zeke be forced to give up his ranching dream to win Becky’s heart?

Available in digital ebook at Amazon
