Fool's Deadly Gold
Lauralyn LaPlant and her sister, Bridgette, could not be closer. Their shared passion for adventure draws them to scale a sheer cliff one fateful day, but despite their experienced precautions, Bridgette suffers a terrible accident and plummets to an untimely death. Shattered by grief, Lauralyn soon makes a sobering discovery: this was no accident—her sister’s climbing rope was cut. But who wanted Bridgette dead, and why? It’s up to Lauralyn and her grieving brother-in-law, Dade, to uncover the truth, even if it means putting themselves in the path of a ruthless killer. As their search for clues leads them deep into the heart of Gold Country, they discover that in the world of prospecting, greed knows no limits.
My thoughts: Two sisters who share a passion for adventure and rock climbing. A fabled mine. The promise of gold. When Lauralyn and her sister seek adventure in Gold Country, several people are racing to see if they can uncover the Lost Rhoades Gold Mines and its promise of riches. While two men duke it out, Lauralyn's brother in law seems to come across a promising lead. When his wife is killed doing something she enjoys, Dade and Lauralyn must band together to discover the truth behind Brigette's murder.
I like how this book takes off at a fast pace from the get go, putting quite a few characters into the mix who instantly have the reader on high alert. The book has more going on than just the mystery of who killed Brigette, which I thought was quite clever. If you enjoy a good mystery, this is an excellent one to pick up!
I received this book from Covenant Communications. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
