Today’s book review features
Bridge of Gold by Kimberley Woodhouse.
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?
Bridge of Gold by Kimberley Woodhouse is the third installment in Barbour Books Doors to the Past series. This split-time romance mystery revolves around the building of the Golden Gate Bridge and the finding of a shipwreck.
During the heart of the Great Depression, Luke and Margo are trying to make their way together, Luke as a diver for the building of the south tower of the Golden Gate Bridge. When he stumbles upon a gold nugget from a shipwreck, their lives take a dangerous and mysterious turn.
I found the diving information incredibly fascinating, especially the details surrounding Luke’s dives from the 1930s. The hardship of the 30s also seeped into the pages of Luke and Margo’s story. For Kayla and Steven, the mystery was as murky as the water they dove in and the tangle didn’t resolve until the very end.
Bridge of Gold is a fascinating tale of history and mystery, gold and shipwrecks, and the cost of greed.
