Weaver’s Needle

24105713Two 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?

4 StarsWeaver’s Needle is a book by a new-to-me author, Robin Carroll. The book sounded interesting and I really was not sure what to expect. What I got was a plotline that would make any Indiana Jones lover proud.
To start out, I absolutely loved the premise of this novel. A murder with a missing item. Two people pitted against each other to be the first to recover said item. Legends, curses, and intrigue surround everything else. The book moved steadily forward and certainly kept my interest. My one complaint is that despite all the opportunities for it, this book just didn’t have the amount of tension I would suspect. But that didn’t hinder my enjoyment of it too much.

All in all, I found Weaver’s Needle to be a unique book. It’s a storyline that at least for me, did not feel overdone. I can honestly say that there were a lot of unexpected moments and events in the book and it kept my interest throughout. I also enjoyed the bit of local legend and Native American beliefs tossed in. All was handled well I thought and the prevailing message of the book aligned itself with Christian beliefs.
If you are looking for a book that falls a bit more into the realm of an adventure with a bit of mystery thrown in, this might be a book worth picking up.

Weaver’s Needle will be released June 1, 2017
