BLOG TOUR w/ GIVEAWAY: Double Eagle Double Cross by M.R. Durbin


After an unexpectedly thrilling summer with his grandfather, Oregon State student Charley Sawyer is ready to catch his breath at his late parents' Oregon beach home. Hoping for some rest and relaxation, Charley is met instead by devastation: the house has been ransacked. In his inventory of the damage, Charley stumbles across the item the trespasser must have been after, the only things that seems out of place: a mysterious key. And when he learns what it unlocks, Charley is drawn into yet another adventure with a ragtag group more than willing to help.

Mac Bowman, the brainy and beautiful anthropology student who joined Charley in his summer escapade, is thrilled when she is presented with the opportunity to conduct research in Oregon. Maybe a little time together will allow the pair to explore their feelings for one another. But when she arrives, she is disturbed by what she finds: Charley has disappeared without a trace.

As Charley and Mac each work to unravel their mysteries, their searches collide dramatically. Only one thing is clear: the moment he found the key, Charley unwittingly opened the door to a long-held secret—one that could cost him his life.


Combining archaeology with a treasure mystery creates a rather intriguing story. While I have not yet had the opportunity to finish the book since school has started and I've been rather preoccupied and exhausted, I'm enjoying what I'm reading so far.  Charley's discovery of a mysterious key and the sudden realization that his parents' car accident may not have been an accident create many questions from the first few chapters.  This is a follow-up book to Beyond the Narrows by Durbin, which I haven't read, so the relationship between Charley and Mac already exists.  The author does give enough background to make the circumstances under which Charley and Mac met clear.  This background also explains why the two aren't certain where they stand.  And unfortunately, when they meet again, circumstances haven't really improved.  And it's clear that neither Charley or Mac are comfortable in romantic relationships.  I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the book and will update this review when I've finished it.
