Beck Valley Books: “Three Silver Doves” by Deborah Garner Book Review/Giveaway (Ends 7/19) WW

By Ruth on June 22, 2015 in blog tour, book, giveaway, promo, review


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?

Three Silver Doves by Deborah Garner

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Before picking up this book, I had never heard of this series nor this author. Within the first few pages, I already was charmed with the book and the writing style. Now that I see it is the third book in the series, that makes sense as I kept thinking to myself I was missing something. Although the book is definitely a stand-alone, I think I would recommend reading the books in order. I was never lost, but I just felt that I wasn’t able to comprehend everything about Paige and her situation.

The biggest strength about this book is that it is truly a “cozy mystery.” In other words, the profanity is almost nonexistent, there is no gratuitous violence, and there are no bedroom scenes. So often in today’s publishing words, books are classed as “cozy,” and I am disappointed at how they do not live up to that name.

Although the author has a readable style (I read the book in one evening), there were a few times I found myself losing interest. I prefer a bit more action (even in my cozy mysteries), but by in large, this book has very little I can criticize. I would be most willing to check out more books by this well-spoken author.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

    A cabin in the mountains is my favorite place for R&R.
