Product Overview

Mining, murder—and a mock marriage?

New York City socialite Becky Campbell inherited more than a speck of her father’s wanderlust. Now his murder bequeaths her a mystery, a ramshackle homestead, and a silver mine.

Zeke Graumann signs on as Becky’s foreman to keep his portion of his family’s ranch. He shares the workers’ reservations about a woman boss, especially one who burns water and prances around in dungarees. Even though she did look awful good in the dungarees.

Then a series of accidents add threat to tension. Can Becky trust Zeke, find her father’s killer, and turn her mine into a profitable venture? Will Zeke be forced to give up his ranching dream to win Becky’s heart?

“I had a hard time putting the book down.” —Lena Nelson Dooley, editor, speaker, and author of fifty Christian novels

    5.0 out of 5 stars Double Jeopardy Reveiw
    Reviewed in the United States on March 22, 2020
    Format: Paperback
    I love the way Donna writes and describes events with a connection to other characters in her book Double Jeopardy. I would describe Donna's writing style as fluid. You can read it and not stumble or have to go back and reread to get the jest of the story.
    I'm thrill about Becky and Zeke and happy to know that Becky's relationship with her mother became so more sweeter and closer. Becky is a leader and I can see how she would want to blaze her own trail.

    Clean living story and that certainly appeals to me!

    Well done, Donna.

    When Becky Campbell travels from New York City society to join her adventurous father at his silver mine in Colorado, she is sadly disappointed. She has to contend with the fact that he was murdered and she has little means or know how to keep up the mine. She is like a fish out of water but tries very hard to make a go of things with the help of two hired hands and a handsome farmer, Zeke Graumann.
    The author captures the quirkinesses and struggles of Miss Becky and the honesty and steadfastness of our hero Zeke. With humor and colloquial sayings and an easy faith thread, this book is lots of fun. But the plot thickens when “accidents” happen at the mine. Who is out to undermine the mine? And when a mix-up sends Becky’s mother on a long train ride to join her...... she needs a groom FAST!
    See what antics abound in this well written story of the old west.

    I received a free advance review copy of this book and am voluntarily providing my honest review. Becky takes over her late fathers mine, not knowing anything about mining. She hires Zeke and 2 diggers. The sparks fly between her and Zeke, but neither wants to acknowledge them. This is a great clean read, hard to put down because something is always happening. I enjoyed this book and recommend it.

    Double Jeopardy

    Posted by Patti Shene on Jan 18th 2020

    Double Jeopardy is an enjoyable story that takes readers back to the days of Colorado mining in the old west. Heroine Becky travels to Colorado to help her father with his mining endeavors, only to learn the task has been left to here alone. Zeke is a cowboy who hires on to help Becky, but they both run into unforeseen circumstances that are both mysterious and dangerous.
    Author Donna Schlachter brings two characters together from different worlds and demonstrates how they can work together for a common goal while facing many obstacles – like murder. Not only that, the New York City socialite and the Colorado cowboy develop a romance neither of them expected.
    Having been born and raised outside of New York City myself, and now living in Colorado, this book was a fun read for me! I would recommend Double Jeopardy to readers who enjoy 19th century historical novels with strong female characters, charming cowboys, and mysterious occurrences.
    I received an Advanced Reader Copy and am leaving an honest review.

    I just finished reading Double Jeopardy in 3 days!! This was the best yet of all the books. I am just sorry the story has ended. It was very enjoyable, easy to read and very suspenseful. I felt like I was right there in the middle of all the action! You are one of my favorite authors!

    Plenty of mystery and suspense keep the reader hooked from the first page to the very end!

    Becky from New York has come to a mining town in Colorado to find her father. The town's atmosphere is caught in the description of the dusty street, the saloons, the drunks. Despite a very unpromising start, Becky is determined to stay and her strong character wins her respect.

    The characters really come to life. As Becky's relationship with Zeke develops, their separate internal dialogues got me so involved – why couldn't they understand each other!
    Becky's father's character is gradually revealed, keeping the reader curious to learn more. The contrast between different characters bring the community of this town to life!
    I so enjoyed this novel and read it straight to the end!

    I gave this a Five Star for plot, characterisation and suspense - a really great book!

    The New York, Becky Campbell turns into a Colorado miner with many obstacles including a cowboy, Zeke who becomes her foreman?

    A must read to find out in the end if Becky gets to claim her father's mine and her father's friend, Zeke. I rated Donna's book a 5 star because it was impossible to put the book down, I read it in two days. It never ceases to amaze me how God graciously changes ones attitude for His Glory, I followed this theme throughout the read.

    I just finished "Double Jeopardy" in an afternoon. It caught me from the beginning and I really felt I was there in Colorado! It is a lovely romantic mystery. I loved the strength of Becky as a woman and how she "grew"into herself, realizing herself just how strong she was!
