Review of Riding Steele: Crossroads by Opal Carew
Riding Steele: Crossroads by Opal Carew
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
In Crossroads Rip and the boys are taking Laurie to a police station in the middle of nowhere so that she can turn over the necklace to an officer that Killer trusts to act as a go between. Once this is done, Donovan has agreed to drop all the theft charge. What we didn’t know at the end of Wanted was that Steele had given the necklace to Shock to hold for safekeeping, so they were able to leave immediately despite Steele’s angry departure.
This particular episode in the serial was a tad too predictable for me. Despite suspecting that it may be a set-up, Rip leaves the others at a diner out of sight of the police station so as not to make the cops nervous. Upon their arrival at the station, Rip parks behind the station and sends Laurie in unaccompanied while he stays positioned where he can’t see a thing. And you’ll never guess what happens next!?! Yep, that was sarcasm. But despite the predictability of Laurie’s abduction and subsequent rescue, there was nothing predictable about Laurie’s actual confinement once she was delivered to Donovan. As for the cliffhanger at the end of Crossroads, NEVER saw it coming. It wasn’t at the bottom of the list of possibilities because it wasn’t even a thought in my mind. I am so relieved that I have the final episode in the serial, Aftershock, all queued up and ready to go.
I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
