Book Description

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars mystery, suspense, excitement! May 9, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a very fun read -- New Yorker Paige MacKenzie arrives in Jackson Hole Wyoming to write an article about the area. She (literally) runs into a handsome cowboy, chases buried treasure, unravels long-hidden mysteries, and even encounters the supernatural. It's very well-written, and the imagery and descriptions of the gorgeous area made me feel like I was there myself. I wish I could give it four and a half stars- the only reason I bumped it down from five was because the supernatural sections seemed a little lacking to me. I would have liked that aspect of the novel to have been woven more into the narrative - it added an even more interesting layer to what was already an interesting story. It seemed a little added-on, though, and I also found myself not quite believing Paige's reactions to it.

The mystery is believable and the well-paced action kept me reading. It was both entertaining and suspenseful. I hope we'll get more stories about Paige and Jake!

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I live in Jackson Hole and very much enjoy mysteries. Above the Bridge embraced the flavor of it's location along with a great story line. Ms. Garner has done an excellent job of describing this part of the country while providing the reader with a first rate mystery. When will Paige Mackenzie be back!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Read June 22, 2012
Format:Paperback
A fun, semi-historical read. It brought back vivid memories of our trip to Jackson Hole and the Grand Tetons. The author has an excellent imagination which she brings to her mystery story. I would recommend "Above The Bridge" to anyone who is looking for a fun mystery.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could be better January 23, 2013
By MCJ
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am very interested in this area of Wyoming and had thought that the description of the area would engage me more than it did.

The main character didn't seem very well developed. The mystery wasn't particularly compelling. I found myself skimming a lot of this book in hopes that it'd get better. The book wasn't bad, but could have been better.

The trip back in time was an interesting twist that really made the history of the area come to life, but the second trip back in time felt like cheating.

Having been to Jackson Hole twice and loving it, I was excited to read a book set in that location. Weird story line and trite dialogue. Would not recommend
