LOVE Inspired books are really a favorite of mine. They are short books, but packed with great stories. Dana Mentink is back with the 3rd book in the Desert Justice series, Death Valley Double Cross. I have read the first 2 books in this series and was excited for Book 3. 

Pilar Jefferson has just learned some shocking news, learning her father whom she believed to be Dead, is actually serving time in Prison. She also knows that she is being watched and someone is looking to kill her. Pilar is forced to make a drastic decision and leave her Fiance, Austin Duke, at the Altar. She feels it is best for her to go into hiding to keep others around her safe. Austin was devasted by the sudden change in their relationship and has tried to move on. He was quite shocked when he knocked on a door of an apartment to drop off a Rescue Dog and Pilar opens the door. Pilar is trying to help her mom who is in a dangerous situation. Austin and his Family decide to help rescue her mom. Will they be able to Rescue her mom before it is too late? Will Pilar and Austin renew their relationship? 

WOW, Dana Mentink sure does know how to write a Suspenseful story!  The storyline captured me from the beginning and I finished the book within 2hrs. Pilar and Austin, the main characters, are enjoyable and I LOVE how their frienship and relationship grew, especially during the Second Chance Romance time.  There twists and turns in the book really kept me glued to the storyline.  I can honestly say I have never been sooo "on the edge of my seat" for any book ever, until this one! This book is one of Suspense, Romance, Second Chances, Faith and so much more. Although this book reads great as a Stand Alone book, I would recommend starting with Book 1 in the series!  HIGHLY recommend this book for anyone who loves Suspense and Romance!

I remember standing on the edge of the lookout and gazing into the wonder that is Artist’s Palette in Death Valley. Artist’s Drive, which takes you to this breathtaking view, rises above Badwater Basin (the lowest spot in North America) and then meanders along twisting canyons and hills until it brings you to this popular tourist stop. The premier view is a place called Artist’s palette. It’s a sprawling pocket of color, hues of rose, ochre, green and gold tucked in the rippling landscape and teased to life by the desert sun. Isn’t that just like God? To lead us to surprises and wonders that await us in a sometimes hostile world? Every day we spent in Death Valley held a surprise, from the rocks that move mysteriously across the sands to the towering twists and turns of 20 Mule Team Canyon. There are only two things to do with a wonderous place like that…enjoy the divine bounty, and write a novel set there so others can come along!

I hope you will enjoy this third installment in the Desert Justice series. The first is Beckett’s story and then we had quiet cowboy Levi’s adventure. Now it’s brash pilot Austin’s turn. Will he get his happy ending after being dumped at the altar and wrecking his shoulder in an accident? Turn those pages and come with me to Death Valley to find out!
