Weaver's Needle By Robin Caroll

Two recovery specialists.
One murder.
A hunt for the Dutchman's Lost Gold Mine becomes a race of survival.

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. The trail takes them from New Orleans to Weaver’s Needle in Arizona where legend claims the mine is hidden. 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.

Can Landry and Nickolai work together despite their distrust of each other to save the legend before more innocent lives are lost? Will they find the real treasure isn’t the gold, but something more valuable. . .true love and understanding?

My Review...
Ready to read a book that has been well researched and the plot is so good you can't put it down? You have found it in Caroll's latest book.
The History that is in this book was so well researched and spot on and you learn from this book while enjoying getting away in a good book.
The characters are the kind of characters that have you plastered to the book.
I liked  the protagonist who was not  marrying a non-Christian. Caroll puts Jesus on the pages in a way that does not slap you in the face but you know you are reading a good clean read.
I gave this book 4 stars. I recommend picking up a copy of this one.
I received this book from the publisher for review. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
