BOOK TOUR: Three Silver Doves (Paige Mackenzie Mysteries #3) 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 review: This is the first book I've read in this series, but I've already put the first two on my Kindle, and will read this one again after I finish the first two.

It's a great summer read, as it is fun and easy to read. The vivid descriptions of the resort and the surrounding area make you feel like you're actually there. The author uses her travel writing background to the fullest. 

The mystery part of the story is also very well-written, with plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing at the solution. The characters are extremely well-written as well, and Paige is a lot of fun, seeing how her curiosity always gets her into trouble in one way or another. 

I also enjoyed the fact this book doesn't have any detailed intimate encounters, violence, or questionable language.

I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.
