DEAD RINGER 

Undercover Texas Ranger Colter Blackthorn's convinced Danielle Segovia is really a wanted criminal—until she's nearly kidnapped right in front of him. Now Colter must keep her out of the clutches of the notorious drug cartel leader whose traitor sister is a dead ringer for Danielle. The drug czar wants the drugs he thinks the pretty shop owner stole from him. And with the younger brother Danielle is raising dragged into the crosshairs, Colt has to find a way to protect them both. But a showdown at Christmas—with Danielle as bait—may be the only way to make sure they all survive the holidays.


My thoughts: CHRISTMAS DOUBLE CROSS is the latest page-turner by Jodie Bailey. I  was  literally on the edge of my seat and couldn't put this book down. 

At first I wasn't sure what I thought of either Colt or Danielle. He is convinced she is guilty and treats her accordingly, and enough doubt is cast on her at the beginning, you aren't totally sure whether she is or is not who she's thought to be. 

You know who the bad guys are in this book, and you know why, but you don't know when or where they will strike next. 
And how or who is going to win each round even though you ultimately know since it is romantic suspense and of course the good guys win.

There is a spiritual message but it is weak, and limited to mostly "help me, Jesus" prayers. If the hero had a clear come to Jesus moment, I missed it. 

There are dead bodies included if you are the screamish sort.

Lots of action, suspense, and romantic tension. A great read.

I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.
