"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.
--Midnight Scribe Reviews, Elena Channing


"I found myself on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading this book."

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

The enthusiasm of the authors is evident on every page of this novel. While there is a small bit of love interest, the book is not a romance in the literal sense of the word. The Mayan mystery is quite nice and holds the reader's interest until the denouement, but one feels the audience for the book is more young adult than mature reader. Lennea is a graduate student and one supposes intelligent, yet she's in a foreign country, and accepts Joseph Darrigo at face value. She did not ask for identification, and without the slightest hesitation allows herself to be ushered from the safety of an airport into a car with a total stranger. That was bothersome. This reader, too, is curious as to why Lennea does not have at least some rudimentary Spanish--which begs the question early on about how she was to assist Wesley Hern. The abundant use of exclamation points wears on the mature reader. Otherwise, readers will thoroughly enjoy the the description of Mayan culture and history woven through out the novel.
