~~~ My Thoughts & Review ~~~
Paige Mackenzie is a reporter for the Manhattan Post. Her next assignment will take her to Colorado, not too far from her boyfriend, Jake in Wyoming. She plans to make it a ½ work trip – ½ romantic getaway when Jake agrees to meet her in Hutchins Creek, CO.
The assignment Paige is working on revolves around the history of the railroad and the Old West. Sounds simple, but nothing is simple when Paige is involved … trouble just seems to find her. She has a naturally curious personality, which makes her a good investigator / researcher for her writing assignments. Her friendly and outgoing nature puts people at ease. They are comfortable sharing info with her, helping her to put all the facts together to solve the mystery. The mystery in this case revolves around an old train car named “The Morning Star” and an unsolved gold coin robbery at the Denver Mint from nearly a century ago. Will Paige solve it? You’ll have to read it to find out for yourself 🙂
Deborah Garner is a great story teller. Because of the detailed research she puts into her books, I always learn new things. She describes her settings so that you almost feel like you are there too. You feel like you are with Paige as she talks to people and does the research for her article.
I really enjoyed this book, and look forward to more Paige Mackenzie mysteries 🙂
Paige MacKenzie heads to the town of Hutchins Creek, Colorado, to research Old West railroad history for The Manhattan Post, with plans to meet up with her favorite cowboy, Jake Norris.
When a mysterious coin from the 1920’s is discovered behind the Hutchins Creek Railroad Museum, Paige starts digging into four generations of Hutchins family history.
As legends of steam engines and coin mintage mingle, will Paige discover the true origin of the coin or will she find herself dangerously close to more than one long-hidden town secret?
“Can’t say enough about this book! Wonderful! Deborah Garner is a wonderful writer! She makes you feel like you are right there with Paige and Jake. I loved the setting of Hutchins Creek and the characters were all great. I was on pins and needles and even shed a tear or two. I can’t wait for more of this series!” – review from Goodreads
