    This book started off with a bang and drew me in to flipping pages over and over again At about the 50% mark it started unravelling and I had a hard time making it through to the end.What bothered me first was the detailed scenes of native religious ceremonies The early ones were easily skipped, so I just flipped past those parts and kept on with the mystery After the halfway point, it got creepier and creepier and the native stuff chants, dances, native worship just couldn t be avoided it This book started off with a bang and drew me in to flipping pages over and over again At about the 50% mark it started unravelling and I had a hard time making it through to the end.What bothered me first was the detailed scenes of native religious ceremonies The early ones were easily skipped, so I just flipped past those parts and kept on with the mystery After the halfway point, it got creepier and creepier and the native stuff chants, dances, native worship just couldn t be avoided it was all mixed in with the narrative and the clues.It was weird enough when the hero guy gets a dream of warning and clue from seeing the native religious ceremonies, but there also wasn t any reason from that dream that would have him suddenly start believing in God It also definitely wasn t a Christian repentance For all we know of his character in the book, he s simply gone from atheist to deist Landry is troubled in chapter 23 she asks her friend Marcie, Marcie, so you believe God uses anything to do His will Even things we don t understand or think might be in contrast to religion itself Her friend answers, God created everythingWhy would we think there s a limit on His power in what He chooses to use Ummm.that limit is found in the Bible God spoke to us through His word and came to us through Jesus Shamans and demon dreams and chants are against everything Jesus came to do for us on the crossThis book is not Christian fiction and should not be marketed as suchAnd then the ending view spoiler What was it What happened What was the dream Why is Gopan attending the wedding Why Where is the mine hide spoiler Seriously A book with zero ending Nah Spare me I read thrillers to get answers Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for a free review copy A favorable review was not required

    Well, I m in a quandary about how to rate this Although this was a pretty good book, I m bothered by one very big thing actually two, but I ll saybelow This is supposed to be Christian Fiction, which judging by the gospel being presented at one point, it is However, a Christian author should know the scriptures, right So, if a Christian author is advocating something clearly unbiblical, can it be good Christian Fiction Landry and Nickolai are both investigators of a specific type The Well, I m in a quandary about how to rate this Although this was a pretty good book, I m bothered by one very big thing actually two, but I ll saybelow This is supposed to be Christian Fiction, which judging by the gospel being presented at one point, it is However, a Christian author should know the scriptures, right So, if a Christian author is advocating something clearly unbiblical, can it be good Christian Fiction Landry and Nickolai are both investigators of a specific type They re called recovery specialists They recover things for their client, lost or stolen items such as art or documents However, they are competitors They ve been commissioned to find a map that was taken when a woman s husband was killed There s a 50,000 fee to whomever finds if first Both of them need the money a lot, so they both set off to find the map This map is to a gold mine in the hills of Superstition Mountain in Arizona This mountain is highly protected by two Indian tribes, and there is danger in being in the vicinity of this mine Landry and Nickolai are also sent obvious threats to their well being if they don t pack up and get out of town.Along the way they begin joining forces, because, well, it was easier to share details, and it made for a muchinteresting story Also along the way, they realize their antagonistic relationship is changing into attraction.Back to my original problem with the story Landry is a Christian Nickolai is not He thinks it s all superstition and can t imagine a rational human being could give themselves to a nonexistent God Despite what the bible says about being unequally yoked and Landry even acknowledges it in the book she can t see herself living without Nickolai What Really You want to start your forever with someone who can t share the most important thing in your life Ugh There are also Indian spirit guides ghosts of Indian ancestors telling both Indians and Nickolai in their dreams what to do, and both Landry and her best friend, who is also a strong Christian, have no problem with this.I don t know I liked the story a lot There was non stop action and it was all well done, and without the whole spirit guide portion of the book there wouldn t be much of a plot, because it s a very large part of the book But I can t abide unbiblical aspects in a Christian book.So 3 stars for that, but and extra 1 2 star for the story, writing and characters 3 1 2 stars

    A well off widow recruits two recovery specialists, Landry and Nickolai, pitting them against each other to earn a substantial fee to recover a stolen map While searching for the coveted map to a hidden and legendary gold mine, Landry and Nickolai may be growing too close for comfort especially when the search could have deadly consequences in Weaver s Needle, a novel by author Robin Caroll.This novel s cover is what most drew me to the story The cover has a sense of adventure and danger, but A well off widow recruits two recovery specialists, Landry and Nickolai, pitting them against each other to earn a substantial fee to recover a stolen map While searching for the coveted map to a hidden and legendary gold mine, Landry and Nickolai may be growing too close for comfort especially when the search could have deadly consequences in Weaver s Needle, a novel by author Robin Caroll.This novel s cover is what most drew me to the story The cover has a sense of adventure and danger, but it isn t dark You can almost feel the blaze of the dry and scorching sun in the bold and vivid design that screams romantic suspense Overall, I found this adventure entertaining The plot kept me curious, and Landry and Nickolai each have crucial, believable reasons for wanting to earn the recovery fee they re competing for.Now, I thought some of the romantic thoughts and feelings in the story didn t quite ring true It seems to me that unless he or she is completely inexperienced, a grown man or woman wouldn t be super shocked or confused by a growing attraction to someone attractive, particularly when the two are working closely together Also, I ve never really been keen on the I can t be with him her because he she isn t a Christian theme in novels, as it tends to muddy the characters faith romantic motives to me And, interesting as it was, I almost felt a little let down by the story s ending.Still, many fellow fans of Christian romantic suspense should enjoy this novel, and I wouldn t mind reading this new to me author again._________________I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review

    What do you get when you throw together a treasure hunt, romance, Indian folklore, and a competition to find a treasure map An awesome book, that is what you get though it tookthan tossing those things together There is some quality writing here I have been a fan of Robin Caroll s books since I first discovered her when she was writing for Broadman and Holman Publishing I liked and eagerly read everything she wrote It has been a while since she has written anything, so I was exc What do you get when you throw together a treasure hunt, romance, Indian folklore, and a competition to find a treasure map An awesome book, that is what you get though it tookthan tossing those things together There is some quality writing here I have been a fan of Robin Caroll s books since I first discovered her when she was writing for Broadman and Holman Publishing I liked and eagerly read everything she wrote It has been a while since she has written anything, so I was excited to see this book coming and was not disappointed after the seemingly endless wait This is possibly her best, and that is saying a lot I loved the characters and their interplay, especially the main two You knew they were going to fall for each other, even though they were competitors, but it was still fun to read about I love a good treasure hunt story, and that aspect of the book really kept my interest, made all thecaptivating by the attempts to stop the dynamic duo from finishing their quest The suspense was top notch, and I wasn t sure who the bad guy was for most of the book, though I was not surprised at his identity Caroll also did a great job of describing the settings for her novel, and it made me want to go explore and look for hidden treasure also Though the book is fictional, it IS based on a true treasure, which made the storyappealing To sum it up Awesome book, and I enjoyed every page of it Robin has done herself and Christian fiction proud with her latest novel I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review

    Weaver s Needle, the latest Christian suspense novel by Robin Caroll, is particularly interesting to me because I love this author s writing and the setting is a short drive from my Phoenix home Apache Junction is southeast of Phoenix, a charming town that retains its small Southwest community feel with friendly, down to earth people.One missing document Two recovery specialists One million dollars and one murder later, Landry and Nickolai are competing to recover that missing document The Weaver s Needle, the latest Christian suspense novel by Robin Caroll, is particularly interesting to me because I love this author s writing and the setting is a short drive from my Phoenix home Apache Junction is southeast of Phoenix, a charming town that retains its small Southwest community feel with friendly, down to earth people.One missing document Two recovery specialists One million dollars and one murder later, Landry and Nickolai are competing to recover that missing document The 50,000 reward is desperately needed by both Landry and Nickolai one to save a business that is a father s legacy and the other, to move one s sister to move to a halfway house from a hospital where she has had long years of treatment for schizophrenia.Winifred is the widow of the murdered man, the woman in charge of their company, Winslet Industries Nickolai drove to Apache Junction Landry flew to Arizona with Stan, a VP and long time employee of the Winslet s, and Winifred s chosen rep to handle expenses for Landry and Nickolai The competitors squared off as boxers might when seeing each other in the ring.The missing document is a map of Arizona s Superstition Mountains with Weaver s Needle The original drawing with handwritten notes was sold to Mr Winslet by a descendant of the woman who cared for the dying Lost Dutchman The Lost Dutchman Mine is folklore to most Arizonans Landry was told there is a curse on the gold and on anyone trying to find it, that ghost warriors of the Superstitions would destroy the map to destroy the curse Unbeknownst to Landry and Nickolai, Apache shamans are in prayer, seeking to deflect the white people who, the spirits revealed, were coming.First, she gets a warning note, then Landry s rental vehicle had a punctured tire Her first suspect was Nickolai When Landry and Nickolai are almost killed, they learn to fully trust each other and work together Phillip, another board member of Winslet arrives to watch out for Winifred s interests, wanting to be part of their investigation but the two evaded them.I like both Landry and Nickolai they are hard working, honest people Landry is a Christian, and prays through challenges Nickolai is not a Christian and sees prayer as a crutch As described, they could step off the pages and into the mountains I couldn t decide which of the two recovery specialists I wanted to find the map, especially when sparks fly between them.One of many things I enjoy about Ms Caroll s novels is that her character s show without preaching what a life of faith can look like, which is what this Christian sometimes needs to see The plot twists and surprises bring many breathtaking moments There was a limited number of suspects The one s I thought of as the bad guy s gal s was correct but I couldn t figure out the motives The author shows spiritual lessons that I need to be reminded of There were a couple things that, to me, stretched Christian faith a little farther than I ve considered The end, while it seemed to drop off quickly, was very satisfactory I highly recommend this novel to readers of any age who appreciate Christian suspense with solid, lyrical writing, excellent background and setting, and ever increasing breathtaking experiences.From a grateful heart I received this eBook from the publisher and NetGalley, and this is my honest review
