Double Cross By: DiAnn Mills

Back of 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.

My thoughts

Double Cross was entertaining with a solid DiAnn Mills plot.  It had intriguing characters and a few twists and turns.  As the story developed little clues were given so that I thought I had it all figured out but in the end I was wrong.  I enjoyed Daniels character, he was well thought out and easy to understand.  Laurel was harder for me to connect with, and if there were sparks between them I never felt it.  Even though all the twists and turns get straightened out in the end, the conclusion felt rushed and choppy.  This is the second book in the series, but I never found the connections to the first so you should be fine reading this even if you missed the first.

DiAnn Mills is a wonderful author, check out her website for other books.  Double Cross is a clean entertaining novel but not my favorite DiAnn Mills book.

I was given this book free from Tyndale Publishing for my honest review.
