Books From The Backlog - Above The Bridge by Deborah Garner

Books from the Backlog is a weekly post hosted at Carole's Random Life In Books. Carole says it's "a fun way to feature some of those neglected books sitting on your bookshelf unread. If you are anything like me, you might be surprised by some of the unread books hiding in your stacks." Find out more and link up your own posts on Carole's Random Life In Books.

I enjoyed taking part in Books From The Backlog last year, but got out of the habit of the weekly posts. Now I hope to use this meme to stoke my enthusiasm for my 2019 Mount TBR Challenge. I'm going to post one BFTB a fortnight and then Actually Read The Book before the next post is due!

Last time I chose The White Walls and Straitjackets by David Owain Hughes and my review is on Literary Flits.

Next up is:

Above The Bridge by Deborah Garner

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.

From the torn edge of a water-damaged map to the mysterious glow of an antler arch, Paige will follow clues high into the mountainous terrain and deep into Jackson's history. Side-stepping a few shady characters who are also searching for the same hidden reward, she will have to decide who is trustworthy and who is not.


Above The Bridge is, I think, the first of Deborah Garner's Paige Mackenzie cosy mysteries series. I read the fourth book, Hutchins Creek Cache, as part of a blog tour back in September 2016 and snapped up Above The Bridge as a temporary freebie a few months later, intending to read the whole series. Maybe now I will?!

    1. I've got several heavy books to read in Feb & Mar so I'm hoping this one will be like a light sorbet between them!
