Gabe Lasley and Shannon Dysart are an unlikely pair. He’s an aimless wanderer who wants nothing other than to be left alone. She’s a fearless female determined to find a city of gold. When they are forced together the mayhem begins. As they set out to find the treasure, trouble is hot on their trail. Will the dream of gold color every decision Shannon makes? Will Gabe fail yet another helpless female in his life?

My Review

Once again, Mary Connealy brings a fast-paced western adventure with enough romance and humor to keep the most fastidious of readers engaged from beginning to end. Using lively dialogue with just enough sarcasm, which we have come to expect from Ms Connealy and truly appreciate, there are plenty of laugh-out-loud moments. Bringing the grandeur and majesty of God's creation to us in highly descriptive form she allows those of us who have never been to the Grand Canyon, or any where near there, to glimpse in a small way some of the beauty of that area that is ever present. As always, her faith theme penetrates the subconscious and brings to our conscious thought that our treasure is not here on Earth but indeed is in Heaven!

4 out of 5 stars!

I was provided a digital copy of this book from Barbour Publishing through NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion. No other compensation was received.
