Welcome to Throwback Thursday where I highlight an older review or post a current review of an old read. Today, I’m re-sharing a suspenseful romantic historical fiction, The Last Train to Key West by Chanel Cleeton.

My Summary:

Key West is a popular destination for tourists. In the 1930s, it is also an opportunity to forget the economic depression. The three women in The Last Train to Key West have very different reasons for finding themselves in Key West on Labor Day Weekend, 1935: Elizabeth travels to Key West from New York City and is desperately searching for a WW1 veteran who is rumored to have been sent to work on the railroad; Key West native, Helen, wants to escape an abusive marriage; Mirta comes to Key West from Cuba for her honeymoon. Rounding out the weekend is an FBI agent, a kind friend, an abusive husband, a secretive groom, and the destructive 1935 Labor Day Weekend hurricane.

one holiday weekend + three women in danger + a hurricane….
