Memorable Excerpt
===
"I gotta be honest, it's takin' a lot of restraint not to kiss you right now." Maggie looked around, a smile playing at her lips. "It's freezing in here. I could use some..." "Ah, fuck it," Jesse interrupted whatever she was about to say, as he seized the back of her head and drew her lips toward his. They collided slightly and sweetly, and he felt like a kid on the playground stealing a kiss from his first love.

Mystery on the California Expres...

Stranded At Night is the first book in the California Express series and is a great start to this new series.

I found the characters to be well developed, interesting, and likable. The storyline is well written, fast-paced, and flows nicely from start to finish, with murder, assault, suspense, danger, and intrigue.

I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
I read and reviewed this book with no obligation.

An absolutely amazing read that captured me immediately and did not let go. I was totally into the story and loved the characters. Not a long story, just perfect actually, I enjoyed this story and hope for more by this author. Maggie and Jesse make a great team, hope for more of them as well.
