Book Description

When Lennea Andrew's traveling companion, Delores, mysteriously vanishes in the bustling Mexico City airport, Lennea has no choice but to trust handsome Joseph Darrigo, who gallantly comes to her aid. The handsome, dark-eyed stranger helps her get through customs and escorts her to Merida, where she is to work with renowned archaeologist Wesley Hern.

When Lennea finds a large amount of money in a secret compartment in Delores' luggage, she becomes tangled in a web of intrigue. Where did the money come from? And what of the handsome stranger Lennea has come to trust? Is Joseph Darrigo really who he claims to be, or is he, along with Delores, involved in some illegal scheme?

4.0 out of 5 stars An Enjoyable tale of mystery. April 28, 2000
Lennea Andrews and Delores Camille, assistants to reknowned archaeologist, Dr Wesley Herns, embark on a trip to Mexico to work at an excavation site. When Delores mysteriously vanishes at the crowded Mexico City Airport, Lennea is distraught. Her savior comes in the handsome guise of Joseph Darrigo. Not only does he help her clear customs, but also escorts her to Merida to meet up with Dr Herns.
Searching for an address book to call friends, Lennea digs into Delores' suitcase, hoping they can help her find the missing assistant. What she discovers instead is a huge amount of American currency hidden in a secret compartment at the bottom of the suitcase! What was Delores mixed up in? What were the implications of all this money? Lennea also wonders about Joseph. Is he really who he says he is? Can she trust him to help her or does he have his own agenda?
PATH OF THE JAGUAR, an ebook by Vickie Britton and Loretta Jackson, is an entertaining read. Set in lush scenic backgrounds, readers are sure to enjoy solving this mystery along with the heroine. The writing style is easy to read and the descriptions are wonderful. The background information and history of the Mayans and their culture makes the story even more interesting. The dialogue flows smoothly and the plot simply ensnares the reader's attention.
Britton and Jackson have given their fans a story with a twist. This is just the sort of book you'd want to curl up with if you're in the mood for a good mystery!

3.0 out of 5 stars Mayan Mystery March 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Intriguing mystery that I did enjoy from beggining to end but I have to admit my frustration multiple times in the book where the heroine literally stands dumbfounded without asking questions or acts as if nothing happened when she was practically attacked!?
I feel this book is also offered under the wrong genre. While there was some romantic interest I wouldn't classify this book as a romance. The description of the book leads you to believe it's going to be prominent throughout the story and it just isn't. No more then simple, sweet, fleeting kisses.
Overall this was a good read and the author paints a detailed picture of Mayan culture for the reader but I probably would have given it more stars had I actually been in the mood for a mystery and not expecting a romance.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad April 24, 2012
By Carol
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a fairly simple romance novel. Boy meets girl, girl already has an infatuation for the wrong guy, girl finally realizes her hero isn't worth it, boy gets girl. This isn't a plot spoiler, BTW, because it's all very obvious from the first.

Although the setting is modern, the heroine is reminiscent of a Victorian character. She's afraid of her own shadow, she never figures out who the bad guys are, even when they're lying to her or saying things that are contradictory, and she generally acts like she hasn't a brain in her head, even though she's a grad student. I mean, what kind of idiot knows they're going to be working on an archeological site in Mexico for some months but doesn't figure out they need to start learning at least simple Spanish?

If you like a romance that's an easy read, and don't have my objection to suffering fools gladly, you'll enjoy this. If you're hoping for depth of plot, characters, or local information (Mexico, Mayans, or archeology) then this book will be a disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down! June 21, 2001
From the minute Lennea arrives in Mexico she has nothing but trouble. First, her friend disappears in the airport. Then she finds hidden money in her suitcase. Not wanting to go to the police until she can find Delores and talk to her, Lennea soon finds herself in danger when someone wants their money back. I have read other books by this talented duo. I like their unique settings and the fast-paced action of their books. If you liked this one you might also enjoy Arctic Legacy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Recreational Mystery for all Ages May 8, 2001
I found Path of the Jaguar to be enjoyable recreational reading. It was light and fast, a little incongruous (would so many natives have attended the lectures? Why would an educated young woman go clear around the world to a strange country on a crush?), but that's the way with recreational mysteries. With Path of the Jaguar, Vickie Britton and Loretta Jackson are obviously not trying to compete with John Grisham.
They have obviously done a bit of research that establishes the setting and plot anchors. From there the story progresses with gripping suspense.
Path of the Jaguar took me back to my Nancy Drew days and I thank Vickie and Loretta for that. Like the Nancy Drews I devoured as a teen-ager, I read Path of the Jaguar in one sitting. I would recommend it for my early and mid teen nieces, even nephews and anyone who is looking for relief from the deeper, more serious mature fiction that is common today.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love the authors' old gothic writing style! April 4, 2000
Poor Lennea just wanted a job with the man she thought she loved. She had no idea it would get her into so much trouble. She and Delores were on their way to Mexico to work with Dr. Wesley Hern at an architectural site. The Delores disappears. Now it's up to Lennea to find out what happened to Delores and to try to make it to the job site. Joseph Darrigo tries to help her but can he be trusted? Too many strange things keep happening. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and could not put it down.

4.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable enough story
While it was a good read, there was plenty of opportunity to make the story more picturesque. I felt it lacked rich detail at times that could have really enhanced the read.
