Editorial Reviews

Review

It's been a while since I read an anthology where the stories were related by a event set in a small town rather than family ties. They do link the stories though the characters in one small way or another but they all feature the geocaching hunt. 

I have to give this book 4.5 stars and say this is one of the best anthologies I have read from this publisher.

Rainbow’s End is a collection of four stories that run concurrently, written by four different authors presenting a very intriguing setup. The stories occur in the Missouri Ozarks at Lake of the Ozarks. All the stories occur during a geocache contest set up by a church that runs over two months. A geocache contest is when teams compete in attempting to locate a series of caches with only the longitude and latitude of the location, along with a poem to help pinpoint the location after arrival. The teams use handheld gps devices to track the exact longitude and latitude. The first three stories are simple romance stories while the fourth has some suspense included. All four stories were worth reading as above average clean romances, and the geocache contest added some fun sideline interest.

I had fun taking a stroll through the lives of these people as they joined in the very first Rainbow’s End Treasure Hunt, and whether or not this group takes the stories a step further by reconnecting in a new collection on the second annual treasure hunt, I’m walking away with a sense both of satisfaction and of a broader world where other stories could be told. To me, this is the measure of success.

One of the most fun parts is the way the characters all make cameo's in each story.

I've read many collections but this one is near the top of the list. each story was well written, with compelling plots and likeable characters. Valerie Comer's Topaz Treasure was a refreshing take on the 'guy from the past' theme and the the twist at the end was a nice surprise.

Beneath the Surface, by Annalisa Daughety's is a sweet and touching story that everyone will relate to. Cara Putman's Love's Prize and Nicole O'Dell's Welcome Home won't disappoint.

One of the most fun parts is the way the characters all make cameo's in each story.

Rainbow's End is a great summer read. One book for the hammock, one for the beach, one for the pool and one for the road. The only minor issue is that all four stories deserved to be full books.

First story: Topaz Treasure by Valerie Comer
Lyssa can tell a stranger the health benefits of abandoning their soda in favor of water, but she's scared to death to share her faith in Jesus. Even with those she knows. She's determined to conquer that fear, however, and signs up to help her church with their summer geocaching outreach. Unfortunately, her first attempt to get a sponsor for the event brings her face to face with her former college professor. The man who made classroom-sport of her best friend's very vocal faith.

I loved the salvation message in this story, and the fact that it is an integral part of the character's story. The hero is pretty cool, too. :-)

Second Story: Beneath the Surface by Annalisa Daughety
Madison isn't thrilled about going home--too many bad memories. But she's lost her job and needs a place to stay until she finds a new one. Geocaching is not her idea of a good time, but she reluctantly agrees to make her sister happy. But when an emergency calls her sister out of town, Madison is stuck with Grant as a partner--the fishing guide who looks down his nose at her Jimmy Choo shoes. Can these two reluctant partners learn to see beneath the suface?

Another delightful story with a wonderful message about forgiveness woven through.

Third Story: Love's Prize by Cara C. Putman
While Reagan searches for hidden treasure in the Ozarks, a stalker is searching for Reagan. Can her brother and his annoying roommate, Colton, keep her safe?

This story had a suspense twist and was a fun change of pace from the other stories.

And last but not least...

Topaz Treasure is such an enjoyable read! Lyssa is a Christian, but is incredibly shy when speaking about her faith. Then she comes across Kirk Kennedy, her college professor who was cruel to her best friend. Could he possibly be the same guy she remembers from college? Or has his heart finally changed for the better? If only she didn't feel a connection whenever she sees him, she would happily bring up this uncomfortable conversation and get closure. There's an unexpected surprise in the story that makes it the perfect light-hearted read and there is indeed a treasure that gets found.

Beneath the Surface brings a story of opposites attract, with just the right amount of tension and sweetness. From hostility to humbleness, from heartbroken to healing; when Madison returns home after several years of being mostly absent she doesn't expect to make amends with her family. With the help of her sister's neighbor, adventures in geocaching, and lots of prayer, Madison realizes there's so much more than what appears on the surface.

Love's Prize took a little longer to get my interest, but I really enjoyed the romance here as it unfolds and the story overall adds perfectly to this book. Reagan is an accountant having some trouble at home so her brother invites her to stay with him for the summer. His friend and fellow law student, Colton, happily joins in the hopes that he will win the treasure hunt of geocaching while looking after Reagan. I completely relate to Reagan in bringing her camera along to capture the beauty and essence of looking for caches on their excursions. An unexpected twist in the story totally changes everything!

This was a fun book to read. Last year for school my high schoolers had a geocaching club. It was fun to figure out where the caches were. This was a fun story of four different couples who were involved in a contest. Though each story was written by a different author, the stories flowed well together and the authors complemented each others style of writing. Well done ladies. Would love to read another work done by the four of you!!!

Rainbow's End is a collection of four stories that run at the same time, written by four different authors presenting a very captivating story. I loved each individual story and how each person found love and adventure at Lake of the Ozarks. I love how each author wrote her own story but they all tied into one big story about a geocaching event. If you would like to learn more about geocaching and/or Lake of the Ozarks then this would be a great book!

Lake of the Ozarks is such an exciting and captivating lake, my in-laws just happen to have a condo near Camdenton so I was very familiar with all of the areas mentioned in this fascinating compilation. Another thing that I hold close to my heart is geocaching! My family and I love to make a day of it and hit up as many geocaches as we can, the funny thing is that we've never looked for a cache at Lake of the Ozarks. You better believe we will hit the trails next time we are in Missouri!

I give this book 4 and a half stars out of 5 for all of the adventure, mystery, romance and fun that this book captures!
