Tessa Crane loves her life as a Harvey Girl. Attractive, hard working and independent, she personifies the best of Fred Harvey s waitresses. She welcomes the passengers of the Santa Fe Railway several times each day as they travel to and from booming California. What she doesn t welcome, however, is the trouble that disembarks one October day in 1895.


When a beautiful woman is found murdered, Tessa wonders why her close friend, Lupe Castillo, is so distraught. Her question is answered when Sheriff Jed Bowman leads a posse to find Lupe s brother, Joaquin. Lupe begs for Tessa s help in uncovering the real murderer, but what they learn leads both women to believe that Joaquin may be guilty.


This is the story of secrets long buried, like the Seashells in the Desert. What happened in the past is unveiled in events of the present. Tessa, Lupe and Joaquin each hold tight to their own secrets. If the truth is to be uncovered, those secrets must be disclosed. Innocent people may be hurt, but that may be the only way to bring a murderer to justice.

Review:

Reviewed by Paul J. for Readers Favorite
 
This story is well-written showing America before the turn of the century. The characterization is well done with several colorful characters from the cook and the sheriff to the widowed ranch owner. By blending them with the main characters, the author was able to bring out an enjoyable story.
