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?

Even though this is part of a series and not the first one, I was still just as drawn into it with Paige Mackenzie as the main character. She is fun and quirky in all the right ways. Paige is a reporter that has been doing stories on the west and finds herself at Agua Encantanda Resort in Tres Palomas, New Mexico. She is supposed to be there to relax a little bit and to take in everything about the resort for her story that she is writing.
As we find out from her love interest, Jake, trouble seems to find Paige wherever she goes on assignment. Paige finds herself in the middle of a mystery in Tres Palomas the very first night she is there when she hears noises coming from the spa. Paige, being the reporter that she is, just as to get to the bottom of whatever is going on around the spa. Miguel as her guide and helper along the way they are determined to find out what is going on with Whitehorse and his Miguel’s sister’s jewelry that she has been making.
You will love Paige’s attitude, Jake’s spunkiness, Miguel’s suave attitude and all the other characters in this novel. Some will have you wondering and the outcome of what is happening will have your head spinning. I can’t believe all of these emotions were twisted into such a quick read that was light and something I very much enjoyed.
I will be going back and reading what I missed before this novel and looking forward to the rest that come along afterwards.
