Today’s book review features
Beyond the Desert Sands by Tracie Peterson.
About the Book
After living an opulent life with her aunt for the last few years, the last thing twenty-five-year-old Isabella Garcia wants is to have to celebrate Christmas in the small silver-mining town her father and mother founded in the desert. She’d rather stay in California with the handsome Diego Morales who is courting her. Isabella is further miffed to have to bear the company of Aaron Bailey, a businessman with the Santa Fe Railroad, whom her father has sent to escort her safely home. Aaron finds Isabella spoiled, and she finds him judgmental.
But she is surprised to see how much the town of Silver Veil has grown and how fragile her father’s health has become. Then Diego shows up with news that her aunt has died. Isabella is saddened by the loss of not only her aunt, but also her place of escape.
Faced with all these changes, she struggles to sort through her future and who she wants to be. But trouble is brewing, and there are those who hope Isabella stays just as she is, even if it costs her everything.

Beyond the Desert Sands is the second book in Tracie Peterson’s historical romance series Love on the Sante Fe.
This is an enemies-to-lovers romance and the tension between the two main characters was excellent. I also liked how they both realized the other had good points in their arguments. And I’m glad the ending worked out as it did. I won’t give spoilers, but I couldn’t wait to see how it all worked out!
I’m looking forward to reading the third book in the series. The first two didn’t share any of the same characters, just the train line, so I’m curious to see who the third book will be about.
