About the Book:

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 had a few spare moments before bedtime last night and I thought to myself, "I'll just take a quick peek inside Robin Caroll's new novel."  Three hours later, I bleary-eyed my bedside lamp and turned it off and fell into a rather adventurous sleep.

To sum it up: no peek, just plow through--stay up way too late so you have baggy under-eyes--dream unusual dreams about finding treasures.

Yeah, I have severe book hangover today thanks to the superb "Weaver's Needle" and Robin Caroll. Part romantic adventure, part treasure hunt, part mystery, and part where you learn a lot about a culture that you would never have known about without Robin Caroll, "Weaver's Needle" tackles the legend of the "Dutchman's Gold Mine" hidden deep in the desert of Arizona.

Just typing that gave me a hot flash! (Arizona, not the gold mine!).  The story is engaging, the characters are complex and lively, and Caroll bravely asks the question that I'm certain many other believers have pondered:

Will/Can God use anything, even something that is by no means of Him, to accomplish His purposes? The easy answer is yes, He's God, He can do what He wants to do.  The more intricate answer?  It's found in the pages of "Weaver's Needle", and it's a timely answer.

That's why Caroll's "Weaver's Needle" gets my "Packs a Punch" with a hint of "For Such a Time" award.  Do NOT think you'll read a chapter or two and put this one down.  Well, you can think it, but good on you if you can actually do it.

I received a complimentary copy of "Weaver's Needle" from Shiloh Run Press with no services or obligations in return.  "Weaver's Needle" is available now, so go seek out a copy, because thar's treasure within them thar covers!

Until the next book comes my way...
