    1. What was supposed to be a week s vacation in Mexico with her recovered alcoholic father, Ashley Delgado was furious to find she was deceived It was only after boarding the plane en route to a dilapidated hacienda that she discovered the truthShe would just have to make the best of it It did help her situation when she discovered the hacienda owner had also allowed a archeology group of a professor and four college students to dig on the property At least she would have students her age near by t [...]

    2. I listened to this book in my van while driving kids around I am finding that kids, and all that I have going on it is far easier to buy a book on CD and put it in my car or audio book and listen to it in the car I can listen while driving, working in my home, etc I just don t have the time to sit and read like I would like to Hence the hiatus in December and most of January I am slowing way down this year, so that I can read of my own books Anywho, back to the bookhehehI found the beginning of [...]

    3. This book is written by LDS author Deanne Blackhurst and the reason I mention this is that I don t usually like to read modern LDS fiction This story is a mystery book whose main character, Ashley, happens to be a recent convert to the LDS Church Ashley upholds her standards without cramming them down the reader s throat I enjoyed finding out about Mexico and the life of the Madera hacienda and its rich Spanish Mexican history The highlight of this story for this self avowed cat lover is the lo [...]

    4. I m not sure if it was the literary voice of the protagonist that grated on my nerves or the physical voice of the reader in this audio book or a combination of the two, but all in all I had issues with her as she talked to herself I also get frustrated with women you charge off into dangerous situations without a thought for safety It makes them appear stupid and I m not a fan of stupid women Two stars means it was fine, just not one of my favorites.

    5. I found this novel engaging and interesting Although the plot was often fairly obvious, it was quick to read and had great characters and particularly, a great background to play on There are small amounts of Spanish throughout the dialogue and the writing, but it isn t often enough that it hinders the reading The first page, first sentence, was a big stumbling block and it seemed out of place and unnecessary to relate one time the character s religion, but it was a quick good read.

    6. I really liked this book A young lady and her lawyer father come to Mexico to help a family save their family estate There is an old rumor that a long ago ancestor to those living at the estate now killed herself The young lady finds the ancestor s diary Questions are answered, treasure is found, and there is another murder.

    7. it was like i was reading zorro without there being an actual zorrohidden treasure, and a murder in which an lds teen decides to solve on her own because no one else can possibly do it correctlye did act like a ditzy high school student instead of someone attending college, but if you just ignore that bit it was pretty good

    8. I give most books a three, so adjust your interpretation of number of stars to that.I enjoyed it, particularly the young boy The mystery was well done and the characters were well defined The ending was strong.I like there was no swearing whole family listened to this as we drove a long distance or scenes that would be awkward.

    9. Ashley is in Mexico with her father He s been hired to help the Madera family and Ashley is about to be pulled into a 200 year old mystery This book was a bit slow but the characters were developed well and the ending most satisfactory.

    10. The basic story was interesting However, the main character was so dumb that it made it somewhat difficult to really enjoy the book I don t want to give anything away, so I ll just say that her attempts at solving the mystery are just one dumb mistake after another.

    11. The mystery was good and I liked the ending but I found the main character, Ashley, a bit annoying She seemed inconsistent at times.

    12. 3.5 stars Nice, clean, entertaining mystery written by an LDS author My only complaint was that the ending was TOTALLY cheesy.

    13. An easy little mystery read The romance and the religion seemed like after thoughts not very important to the flow of the book, but there anyway Language clean, heat level super mild
