When Paige MacKenzie arrives in Jackson Hole, her only goal is to complete a simple newspaper assignment about the Old West. However, it’s not long before her instincts tell her there’s more than a basic story to be found in the popular, northwestern Wyoming mountain area. A chance encounter with attractive cowboy Jake Norris soon has Paige chasing a legend of buried treasure, passed down through generations.
From the torn edge of a water-damaged map to the mysterious glow of an antler arch, Paige will follow clues high into the mountainous terrain and deep into Jackson’s history. Side-stepping a few shady characters who are also searching for the same hidden reward, she will have to decide who is trustworthy and who is not.
I purchased this book a few weeks ago because it was set in Wyoming and I needed to read a book set in that state for my Where Are You Reading? Challenge and the synopsis intrigued me too.
I was very surprised by this story led us readers and Paige MacKenzie and I don’t want to give anything away but the mystery does take a track off the well trodden path the Jake was taking.
I liked these characters. Paige is an adventurous woman and proves it more than once. Jake is searching for a treasure that may not even be there but he finds Paige and realizes there may be something more important than gold.
The author gives wonderful descriptions of the mountains, sunrises and sunsets. I have never been to Wyoming but she took me there in my mind and it was a great trip. If you have been to Jackson Hole you would enjoy this very much.
I still have not decided if I liked the ending. I was hoping for something a little different but will be reading The Moonglow Cafe: A Paige MacKenzie Mystery to follow Paige on her next adventure.
