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!

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!

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.

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.

This book held my interest from start to finish. It was beautifully written with such great descriptions that I could picture the town and landscapes. It had enough mystery and suspense to be very entertaining. Great read!!

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

I bought this mystery primarily because it is set in the area of Jackson Hole, Wyoming - which I have visited and loved. I liked the many mentions of things like the antler arches in the town of Jackson, coyotes mousing, Moose Droop (a local beer), bald eagles, and more. However, the story itself was rather bland. I never felt any urgency to find out what comes next.

In fact, the author solved the mystery by throwing in a couple of time travel episodes, the basis for which was never explained. In the past for a short time, the character directly observed the answer to the mystery. I am not clear on why a stranger from out of town would suddenly blink into the past and see the material that supports a newspaper article she intends to write. It doesn't happen to the locals. It felt like a lazy plot device rather than a necessary part of the plot line. There was also a threat from some locals, I guess to add tension, but their background and motives were explained only superficially. I am not fond of mysteries with gaping plot holes.
