"Waiting for an answer to prayer led to frustration, but perhaps that was best."
Lily is devastated at the loss of her father. But what is worse - no one else will believe her that he was murdered. Determined to set out for revenge she embarks on a harrowing trip to her uncle in California. And how far will her father's murderers go to get what they're after? With a devoted beau, a new found friend and a long-lost aunt - who can she really trust? Lily hires Ace Diamond to protect her, but may have gotten more than she paid for.
My Opinion: This book was a thrill to read. A gripping story of adventure and mystery. Ace was a fabulous smoky hero straight out of a movie. Lily is spunky and determined but still ladylike. The various side characters fill in a world of intrigue despite the limitations of travel by train. The romance is sweet and exciting. The adventure keeps you reading until the very end, anxious to see how it all turns out. A wonderful read and one I would recommend.
I was given a free copy of this book to review. No other compensation was given. The summary and opinion are 100% my own.
