Three Silver Doves By Deborah Garner
When New York reporter Paige MacKenzie heads to Tres Palomas, New Mexico, the resort of Agua Encantada seems a perfect destination to combine work with pleasure. A quick article on the healing mineral springs and a few leisurely soaking sessions in the resort’s soothing waters promises well-deserved rest and relaxation.
Paige is immediately intrigued with a local artist’s one-of-a-kind jewelry designs, as well as weekly gatherings to hear legends from an elderly storyteller. But when identical jewelry shows up on another guest and the storyteller goes missing, Paige’s R&R is soon redefined as restlessness and risk. Curious and persistent by nature, Paige is convinced there’s a connection. Enlisting the help of a flirtatious resort worker seems like a good idea until it begins to test her loyalty to her favorite cowboy, Jake Norris. Will an unexpected overnight trip to Tierra Roja Casino lead her to the answers she seeks, or are darker secrets lurking along the way?
My thoughts about Three Silver Doves By Deborah Garner
I really enjoyed reading Three Silver Doves. In fact, I read it in one day. It would be perfect to take on vacation for a book to read in the mountains or on the beach. This book started out a little slow but about a third of the way in it took off. The first part of the book described Paige’s surroundings at Agua Encantada and the characters that would have an impact on her life. Even though this made the book feel a little slow, action wise, I feel like Deborah Garner did an excellent job bringing us into the story. I love how she described the colors of the buildings and the plants and weather.
There was some mystery from the get go with Paige and the open window to the spa. Then we get to really know Paige before diving into the mystery. I love that there was flirtation and romance in this novel without there being sex. I get tired of reading smut and foul language and this book definitely doesn’t have that. What is does have it cute flirtation, sassy characters and a great storyline. It’s just a really good, down home book.
Once it gets into the mystery and action, it just gets better and better! There are some surprises along that way that I didn’t see coming. I love the flow of the story. Even though Jake doesn’t appear much in the actual story, I love how each person plays a role in deciding the future of both Paige and Jake. The ending was perfect!
I think that Three Silver Doves by Deborah Garner is my new favorite book!
