Former Army MP Landry Parker fell into the recovery specialist role quite by accident—to help her ailing father. Now that she’s on her own, she is determined to prove herself and honor her family legacy.
After being shot in the line of duty, former police officer Nickolai Baptiste became a recovery specialist, and he’s good at his job—maybe even the best.
A potential client pits Landry and Nickolai against one another to find the Dutchman’s Lost Gold Mine map that was stolen from her murdered husband, and the potential payday is too enticing to pass up. Landry and Nickolai are no strangers to adventure, but the unlikely partners quickly discover there’s someone after the treasure and there are those who want to ensure the lost mine in Arizona’s Superstition Mountain stays lost forever.
Weaver’s Needle by new to me author Robin Caroll was a very interesting story that I had a hard time putting down. The premise drew me in, and I was curious to see where this story would lead. Landry was a fun character, spunky, clever, and relatable. I also enjoyed reading about Nicholai Baptiste, and that may or may not have been helped along by the fact that I spent the whole book visualizing him as Ross Poldark, because come on; the picture on the cover is the spitting image of Aidan Turner. I found Nicholai’s past and his sister’s schizophrenia to be morbidly fascinating and I really felt for him as a character.
The treasure hunting aspect drew me in, and it was interesting seeing both Landry and Nicholai follow their leads to get to the bottom of this mystery. I enjoyed this story immensely, but the ending threw me for a loop, and I’m still not entirely sure what to think of it.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.
