Three Silver Doves Book Review and Giveaway


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:

This was my first Paige Mackenzie mystery, and I was quite pleased to discover how quirky Paige is and what a fun story Ms. Garner writes!

Paige MacKenzie is a reporter who goes to the Agua Encantada resort in Tres Palomas, New Mexico to write a story about relaxing at the mineral springs, and Paige is excited to extend her work trip to include a relaxing vacation.

Unfortunately, very soon after she checks in Paige finds herself in the middle of a mystery and she's no longer able to focus on relaxation. As far as I can tell, this is pretty typical for Paige, since she pokes her head into everyone's business, and her boyfriend is constantly worried about her.

This is a fun, quick to read mystery that makes me want to explore the southwest (and maybe find a handsome handyman to flirt with). However, I'd much prefer to not be involved in jewelry theft and underground secrets!
