Weaver's Needle Review

Weaver's Needle by Robin Caroll

Book Description:

32926732Two 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?


My Opinion:
Hmm.....Well....This was the first book I've read from Robin.  And it just wasn't my cup of tea.  Don't get me wrong there were some scenes that I enjoyed, but the book as a whole was just ok.  I pushed myself to finish, and there were sections that I skipped through.  The mystery was kinda interesting, but part of my problem was I really couldn't connect to Landry.  Nikolai's story towards the end is what pushed me through some stuff.  I really enjoyed his road to salvation and forgiveness.  And that name?! :D  Nikolai Baptiste, LOVE IT!  But there are some descriptive words used that really don't fit Arizona.  And I got frustrated quite a few times as the plot seemed to be going in one direction, but got lost along the way.  Then towards the end it went somewhere complete opposite to where I wanted it to. :/ In the end I had thought it was going to be completely different and this wasn't a book for me.
