It was to have been her wedding day. It became a day of utter treachery and madness. Lily’s life changes drastically when she finds herself entangled in a web of deceit, corruption, and murder. Suddenly the unwilling guardian of encrypted documents and a stolen fortune, Lily engages in a dangerous game of unmasking the men behind the crimes. But solving the mystery is not enough — will Lily and her true love survive the consequences of learning the truth?
High suspense set against the backdrop of territorial days in New Mexico.
The plot of Tierra Red was inspired by a topic that remains as controversial today as it was in 1899—stolen land grants. When the book opens, we see the beauty of the northern New Mexico mountain landscape through the eyes of a man obsessed with owning the land before him.
Tierra Red’s suspenseful adventure begins in one of the most enchanted spots in New Mexico. Three Rivers Canyon is as remote today as it was in 1898. And the White Sands Desert is still as mysterious as it was when Lily journeyed across it to reach the town of Las Cruces – dunes with heights of seventy feet or more still enchant those who venture there.
