The best part of this book was the free sample. What a disappointment. I caught myself skipping pages just to get it over with and I never do that!!!!

This short preview is very good, leaving the reader wanting more. I like that it is Christian faith-based. However, I generally choose free Nook books or go to the library for best sellers so won't be spending $10 to read the rest of this book.

Weaver's Needle is my first read by Robin Caroll but certainly will not be my last! This book has all of the elements of a book that I enjoy--mystery, action, romance and just good writing. Landry Parker, former Army MP and former detective, Nickolai Baptiste, both of New Orleans and now work in the recovery of stolen artifacts, are hired by Winifred Winslet, the widow of Bartholomew Winslet, to recover a map to the Dutchman's Lost Gold mIne in Arizona that was stolen from her husband when he was murdered. The twist is that the first to find the map is rewarded with $50,000. Both Landry and Nick need the money for different reasons. Once in Arizona, someone is trying to scare them away. As the situation gets dangerous for them, they decide to work together to find who has the map and maybe the murderer of Winslet. Two friends of the Winslets are there to oversee the search for the map. Stan was sent with them by Winifred but Phillip just showed up saying that he was there to make sure that Winifred is not taken advantage of. Both men love Winifred and maybe one of the them is the one that killed Bart and is trying to get them off the case. Mixed in the story was Native American folklore that says that Ghost Warriors protect the mine from being found by white people. There are many Native Americans in Apache Junction. Maybe one of them is trying to scare them away. Ms. Caroll does a great job at plot and character development and scenery description. This is an action packed, fast paced story that will keep the pages turning. I found the Native American element very interesting and it worked out well with the mystery surrounding the legend of the lost mine. Landry's parents died of natural causes but Nick's parents died in a house fire caused by his sister who suffers from schizophrenia and lives in a care facility. While Landry relies on her faith, Nick does not see how God could allow such events to happen. I recommend this read and thank NetGalley and Barbour Publishing for the opportunity to read and review this book.

This is a Christian book where one characters is a non believer (Nickolai) and the other one a believer (. Landry). I was a little surprised by that the author used a great deal of Native American shaman rituals. I really enjoyed the authors ability to bring in different religions and not just focus on Christ Centered ones. The authors writing style took me a little times to get used and the story couldn't quite figure out if it was mystery or romance neither one blended as well as I hoped. The if you follow the mystery its your basic story with very little bite someone tries to drive them off the road hoping to spot them from searching. Nothing stood out its our basic mystery. On the romance side everything happened so fast even with them being so different and yet they were in love. Neither side of the story was blended well enough giving readers your basic story. Thank you to Netgalley for the advance Copy

Mystery and intrigue are found in this fascinating story. A lost gold mine map leads the main characters on adventure and possible danger. Very good story. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.

Landry Parker and Nickolai Baptiste are recovery experts that are hired by a wealthy woman to recover a treasure map that disappeared when her husband was murdered. The first person to find the map will receive fifty thousand dollars. They both accept the challenge and initially work independently. Soon, they realize that they will be better off working together as a team because there is someone else after the treasure and they are willing to kill for it. Their search takes them from New Orleans to Weaver’s Needle in Arizona where their hunt for clues leads them into sacred grounds of Native Americans. Weaver’s Needle is a 1,000-foot-high column of rock that forms a distinctive peak. Located in the Superstition Mountains, east of Phoenix, it is one of the landmarks of central Arizona because it is visible for miles around. It is even cited by legendary Dutchman Jacob Waltz as one of the locator marks for his Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine. I love romantic Christian suspense books and Robin Caroll delivers. First, she picked a beautiful locale for her story to take place. Next, her leading characters, Landry and Nickolai, are interesting and the plot is filled with romance, suspense and Native American spiritualism. Weaver's Needle keeps the reader guessing while blending God's love and protection with the Native American shamans. I recommend this novel to anyone that loves romantic Christian suspense.
