Certain moments in life define a person.


Repairs on the Golden Gate Bridge Uncover a Century-Old Murder

Walk through Doors to the Past via a new series of historical stories of romance and adventure.

Underwater archaeologist Kayla Richardson is called to the Golden Gate Bridge where repairs to one of the towers uncovers two human remains from the late 1800s and the 1930s. The head of the bridge restoration is Steven Michaels, who dives with Kayla, and a friendship develops between them. But as the investigation heats up and gold is found that dates back to the gold rush, more complications come into play that threaten them both. Could clues leading to a Gold Rush era mystery that was first discovered during the building of the bridge still ignite an obsession worth killing for?

  1. Happy Friday!
    I’m currently reading Come back to Me by Jody Hedlund. I’m just starting chapter 11, so I’ll share from there:
    “How could she possibly survive without money?”
    Hope you have an excellent weekend. Happy reading! 🙂❤📚

  2. I really enjoyed Bridge of Gold!! Great book.
    “Everybody thought Tansy Calhoun was heartbroken after Jeremy Simpson threw her over for Jolene Hoskins.” Along a Storied Trail by Ann Gabhart.

  3. Faith Creech

    Jim Fate bounced on the toes of his black Salvatore Ferragamo loafers. This is the first line from the book Hand of Fate by Lis Wiehl. This is the second in her series and a very good mystery.

    While some adjusted to air raid sirens and others to the lost light of blackouts, Diana Somerville never recovered from the absence of church bells.
    The London Restoration by Rachel McMillian

    Can’t wait to read Bridge of Gold!

    This week I am featuring Chasing Shadows by Lynn Austin, a stupendous book!

    The Netherlands. may 1945 prologue
    Every sound in the coal-black night seemed magnified as Lena lay awake in bed, waiting. She heard the quiet rustlings of the shadow people as they crept through the darkness in her farmhouse.

    Happy Weekend! My first line is from “Just Look Up” by Courtney Walsh:

    “Lane Kelley rested her hand on her knee, willing it to stop bouncing.”

  7. Debra J Pruss

    From the Islanders by Mary Alice Monroe and Angela May. This is going to be the worst summer ever!

  8. Kay Garrett

    Everything I’ve heard about Bridge of Gold has been excellent which makes me want to read it all the more.

    I just finished reading one book (THE COWGIRL’S SACRIFICE by Tina Radcliffe and just starting to read another (UNDERCOVER MEMORIES by Lenora Worth).

    So my first line of the one I’ve started is: Detective Ryder Palladin listened to the grit and static of the scanner and hit the steering wheel of the rusty, old undercover vehicle.

    Bridge of Gold sounds sooo good! It is one of the books at the top of my TBR list!

    My FLF is…

    Bridge of Gold is a great book.
