When Paige MacKenzie arrives in Jackson Hole, her only goal is to complete a simple newspaper assignment about the Old West. However, it’s not long before her instincts tell her there’s more than a basic story to be found in the popular, northwestern Wyoming mountain area. A chance encounter with attractive cowboy Jake Norris soon has Paige chasing a legend of buried treasure, passed down through generations.
“The sounds, views, smells, and feelings she described made me feel that I was right there along with her characters for the adventure. A ride I most certainly enjoyed!”
New York reporter Paige MacKenzie has a hidden motive when she heads to the small town of Timberton, Montana. Assigned to research the area’s unique Yogo sapphires for the Manhattan Post, she hopes to reconnect romantically with handsome cowboy Jake Norris. The local gem gallery offers the material needed for the article, but the discovery of an old diary, hidden inside the wall of a historic hotel, soon sends her on a detour into the underworld of art and deception.
“Refreshing to read a clever mystery that doesn’t follow the tired old formula so common these days.”
“The author mixes suspense with a sweet romance. There is great dialogue and a stellar cast of characters.”
Author note: All of the Paige MacKenzie mysteries are based around specific areas and include history about those locales. Above the Bridge is set in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and involved heavy research through the Jackson Hole Historical Society, including a fascinating session with their curator, rummaging through photo archives. The Moonglow Cafe is set in a fictional town in Montana, but a very real area for sapphire mining and the western art of Charles Russell. The history of both of those subjects weighs into the story.
