Book Description: In this romantic suspense novella, SILVER CASCADE SECRETS, by Rachelle J. Christensen, Jillian is the master landscaper at a beautiful park. Meeting Travis there soon after breaking up with her boyfriend, Jillian is wary at first. Travis seems like a great guy, but Jillian had fallen for great guys before. When she learns that his brother, Craig, was murdered six months before, her heart goes out to Travis. True to her curious nature, she starts asking questions and learns about Craig’s close connection with the park. But finding the answers puts Jillian’s life in danger, and she must decide who she really trusts.
My thoughts; This is a short and sweet novella.
Jillian is a care taker of the Silver Cascade's Park. She loves her job. She is drawn to a man playing with a girl in the Autumn leaves. He is kind and his love for the girl is evident in his actions. She is puzzled when a woman picks up the girl, leaving the man at the park. Her questions are quickly answered when she helps him locate his keys that he lost in the leaves.
The girl is his niece and he is trying to help out his widowed sister. His brother-in-law was murdered and together they puzzle out clues to solve the crime.
The events happen in a short period of time. I would have liked this story to be longer. The characters had a lot of potential and I would have liked to know more of their story. For the format of the story, this was great and it hit my need for a quick romance story. This book is perfect for the times when you don't have a lot of time and would like to escape into a fun read.
