Editorial Reviews

Booked Up Blog
It's been a while since I read an anthology where the stories were related by a event set in a small town rather than family ties. They do link the stories though the characters in one small way or another but they all feature the geocaching hunt. 

I have to give this book 4.5 stars and say this is one of the best anthologies I have read from this publisher.

Eclectic Reading
Rainbow’s End is a collection of four stories that run concurrently, written by four different authors presenting a very intriguing setup. The stories occur in the Missouri Ozarks at Lake of the Ozarks. All the stories occur during a geocache contest set up by a church that runs over two months. A geocache contest is when teams compete in attempting to locate a series of caches with only the longitude and latitude of the location, along with a poem to help pinpoint the location after arrival. The teams use handheld gps devices to track the exact longitude and latitude. The first three stories are simple romance stories while the fourth has some suspense included. All four stories were worth reading as above average clean romances, and the geocache contest added some fun sideline interest.

Tales to Tide You Over
I had fun taking a stroll through the lives of these people as they joined in the very first Rainbow’s End Treasure Hunt, and whether or not this group takes the stories a step further by reconnecting in a new collection on the second annual treasure hunt, I’m walking away with a sense both of satisfaction and of a broader world where other stories could be told. To me, this is the measure of success.

    The Strange Kit: Prologue

    "One shekit," Softfeather said to Mareleaf. Mareleaf lifted her head to look at her new daughter. "Congratulations," Firestorm whispered to his mate. "What should we name her?" Mareleaf asked Firestorm. At that moment, a shaft of sunlight broke throught the roof of the den and onto the tiny kit, making her bluish grey fur look rainbow. "How 'bout Rainbowkit?" Firestorm suggested. "It's perfect," Mareleaf whispered to her mate, admiration shining in her eyes as she looks at her kit.~~~~~~~ Chapter One in the next result. Hope you like so far!

    Fun Read

    As I have said before the Romancing America series has fast become one of my favorites to read. This book is no exception. This book is told by four different couples over the same time frame. The four stories evolve around a geocaching adventure put on by a local church that lasts for the summer months.

    What I liked: I really liked the whole book. My favorite story probably was the last one which has some good suspense and to be honest I was not expecting the outcome and that was a pleasant surprise for such a short story! I felt even though the four stories where not intertwined even thought they followed the same storyline setting that they where well written and fun to read and with the last story being suspenseful really make the ending enjoyable.

    What I did not like: Honestly not much. The story was a little slow in one of the stories at times but still a good read.

    Over all another good book in the Romancing America series and I highly recommend picking this one up. It’s an easy read and a great one if you need to read a little here and there as with four stories you can stop and start a little easier. Check it out!

    Love's Prize by Cara C. Putman
    Reagan is an accountant who was being stalked. Her cat was poisoned. So she was going with her brother and his roomate for two months and entering the geocaching contest. Reagan took lots of pictures of the two guys and the scenery but she would not sign the logs and have a record of her their.
    Colton was asked by his law school roomate if he would go with them and help protect Garrets sister from the stalker. He was willing to do it and have a two month relaxing outdoors till lawschool started this fall.
    Garrets is protective of his sister but he does take off at least one night a week. It was his idea to spend the summer in little town away from the city they lived in.
    All four stories were good but feel like a bit was cut out. Thier was some mention of a couple of scriptures that fit in with the stories. No sex or swearing that I noticed. I just wish the stories were a little longer.

    Topaz Treasure is one out of 4 fun stories in the Rainbow's End

    Topaz Treasure is one out of 4 fun stories in the Rainbow's End novel published by Barbour. I like novellas because of their length you can take them to read in the school car line or sports practices. Being theses stories are quick reads you feel like you had a little me time in your busy day.

    Topaz Treasure is a story of holding on to false beliefs, and unwillingness to accept others can change. Lyssa's roommate was fearful that Lyssa would be hurt by Kirk, a known Christian mocker. Was she right? Not telling you! I don't do spoilers. The story is set in the Ozarks and made me feel like I was home. Comer got the setting correct, right down to Ha Ha Tonka State Park. Lyssa and Kirk's characters are well written as is the story. I do wish it could have been a novel so I could have stayed with the characters a bit longer. Topaz Treasure is a unique love story in that it centers around geocaching--hunting for treasure using a GPS. Intrigued by this hobby I'm hoping to take part of some of these myself.
