Review of Rails and Aces by Vicki Britton and Loretta Jackson

Actual Rating – 3.8 stars

Ruggedly sexy cowboys, forbidden love interests, and an abundance of 'who done it?' gave me plenty of reasons to enjoy Rails and Aces.

While my previous interest in all things “wild west” revolved around the movies The Quick and The Dead and Cowboys & Aliens, I found this novel to be much more interesting than I expected.  I also found the plot quite frustrating since I had absolutely no idea who to trust or who was actually behind the robbery.

I loved the fact that Delilah was fearless and remained loyal to her beliefs in spite of what she felt for Jace. The “love triangle” was a great addition to the plot. It gave the novel more gravity and was one of the things that pulled me to it more.

I liked that Jace was literally a jack-of-all-trades. He kept his loyalty to whatever he thought was right and, of course, what would keep him alive. Even in the midst of a posse out for blood, he remained true to his values.

If I could change one thing about this book, it would be that Delilah and Jace would have more of a relationship, instead of falling head over heels in the midst of two paragraphs.

While this book didn’t have me on the edge of my seat, I would definitely still recommend it.
