Review of Double Cross by Diann Mills

{This post may contain affiliate links.}

Double Cross is a Christian romantic suspense novel. I enjoy this genre when there is good character development and an interesting plot line.

Double Cross drew me in right away with an interesting story. I would have liked to "hear" the characters a bit more, but I felt like they were developed fairly well; and I enjoyed our main female character- Laurel- and the male counterpart- Daniel. I felt as if I actually got to know them as the story went along.


The action was interesting. And, although there is a focus on faith and the main characters' faith development, the story isn't at all preachy. There were times when I felt as if things were dragging, and the story could have moved along more quickly. And there were some times that I felt as if the action were choppy and not realistic. But, overall, I enjoyed the story.

This was a light, quick read; and I give it 3.5 stars and a PG for content. (There is some crime drama and reference to homicides but not much description of violence.)

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are entirely my own, and I was not compensated in any other way.

ABOUT THE BOOK

FBI Agent Laurel Evertson’s investigation into a scam targeting the elderly takes an unexpected twist when key evidence leads her to Morton Wilmington, a felon she arrested five years ago on her first undercover assignment. That case has haunted her since, and though she’s vowed to forget Wilmington—and what she sacrificed to put him away—he is now her best lead. Houston Police Officer Daniel Hilton fears his grandparents may be the scammer’s next targets, and he’ll do anything to protect his family—even force interagency cooperation. But he’s quickly drawn to Laurel’s empathy and zeal and agrees to follow her lead . . . even if it means teaming up with a felon. As the unlikely trio uncovers evidence suggesting the scam is more extensive and deadly than they imagined, both Laurel and Daniel find themselves in the crosshairs of a killer. Together they must decide if they can trust Wilmington’s claims of redemption, or if he’s leading them straight into a double cross.
