Great book and start to a new series. If you're looking for an "easy" suspense novel, this is it. I say that because although the threats against Maya and her brother Brady are serious, it doesn't really get scary. If fact, the mystery is pretty easy to figure out, so this makes a great story for a young person looking to get started in Christian suspense. Maya and her love interest, deputy sheriff Alex, find each other's company pleasant from the start. Naturally, neither start by looking for romance, but that changes as the story rolls on. The book has some good lessons on what is important in life. I also liked the secondary characters around their pleasant town, and I'm looking forward to read their stories in future books in the series.

An awesome start to a new series by Terri Reed! Taking place in the Colorado Rocky Mountains where an innocent treasure hunt turns deadly. A search for young Brady Gallo leads danger right to the home he shares with his sister Maya. With the help of mounted patrolman Alex Trevino, they must stop whoever is behind the attacks before any more lives are at stake! I love the premise of this with mounted patrol officers, something you don't see too often in books. Not only that, but the draw and mystery of finding real buried treasure by following clues placed in a newspaper ad each week. Reed brought the beauty of the mountains to life for me, painting a picture in my mind. She also brought danger to the forefront with attacks blindsiding both Maya and Alex. So many suspects I never knew who was behind them! The strong family dynamics between Maya and Brady was refreshing to watch. She wants nothing more than to protect him from a world that doesn't always understand those who are different and he wants to push the bounds a bit to become more independent. There's a little push & pull there but you can definitely see the love they have for one another. Alex is a true gentleman and hero; trust worthy, protective, loyal and has inner battles of his own he must overcome. Those just make him more appealing in my mind! Both the hero and heroine resist falling in love for reasons you'll find out by reading this. The suspense is just the right pace for me & the level of mystery makes this a puzzle I wanted to figure out right along with them. All in all, a great book for suspense lovers who also like a faith thread seamlessly woven throughout . I can't wait for the next installment of this bang-up start to a new series! “My parents taught me to believe that God is in control, and when things work out in a way that seems....random or a coincidence, that really it was God orchestrating things.” ~Maya (pg 60) *I received a complimentary copy from the author and was under no obligation to leave a favorable review.

I loved these characters! Maya is a very loving sister to her teenage brother, Brady who has Downs Syndrome. Brady was a wonderful young man and I really liked him. He was sweet, kind and very determined to do the right thing. There is a big treasure hunt in the mountains set up by an eccentric old man and things are going crazy up there in the mountains! There are bad people who are willing to do anything to get that treasure. Sweet Brady loves treasure hunts and he gets involved in all the hoopla. He gets hurt in the mountains and Maya gets hurt trying to find him. Alex is a deputy for the mounted patrol in the area! I really enjoyed learning more about the mounted patrol. When a man is found dead in the mountains, Alex is assigned to the case. The care that Alex takes with Maya and Brady is very special. Alex has had a tough past but he's trying to get past it by having his dad live with him. I enjoyed the whole story and the characters and I certainly hope there are more books that will continue with the secondary characters in the sheriff's departments because I liked them too!
