Book Review ~ Weaver's Needle by Robin Caroll ~ 12/4/18


 Two 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 Thoughts:
I don't think I've ever read a book involving recovery specialists or a modern day treasure hunt complete with treasure maps and clues.  This book was so much fun to read!
I loved the competition between Landry and Nickolai as well as their verbal sparring with each other.  Their dynamic with each other was very well written.
I couldn't for the life of me figure out for sure who the bad guy actually was.  That is a big plus for me when reading a mystery.
The setting was amazing.  It was so interesting to read about the Superstition Mountains and the history and culture of that area.  The author did an amazing job of writing it into the story.
I've read other Robin Caroll books but nothing like this one.
Loved the ending and the whole book!



  1. Sounds interesting! Thanks for your review!

  2. This does sound really interesting and sit-on-the-edge-of-your-seat kind of book. :-)

  3. This sounds fascinating! I'm finding myself tired of the same-old, same-old stories so this one might be a perfect next read for me! Thanks for sharing this at Booknificent Thursday on Mommynificent.com!
