Introducing Olivia and Amber Kelly, competent, intelligent, capable sisters who conquer any challenge they are presented to include the loves of their lives. Rick O’Grady is fresh back from Afghanistan and ready to take on the 1870’s Wild West that he loves from the pages of the westerns that got him through his tours of duty. Connor O’Grady is looking for the perfect Colorado Horse Ranch and finds the perfect woman at the same time. David and Kenzie help Rick locate missing Amber who found her family’s heirloom precious gem brooch and is whisked to the beginning of the paleontology “wars” in 1878 Colorado while Connor is left behind to console Amber’s frantic sister and hold off the impending investigation into her disappearance. Amber finds her “heaven on earth” in this new era with her passion for archeology and paleontology. There they encounter Pinkerton agents and Wild West gun slingers on both sides of a railroad war while Amber is eager to learn from the experts who are locating a plethora of dinosaur fossils. Daniel Grant, Pinkerton agent, and his son Noah find out exactly what it means to be a part of the Celtic Brooch Clan.
Woven into the background is the trauma being inflicted on the Napa Valley and the Montgomery Winery by the wildfires of 2017. Meredith and team are struggling to save everything they can including the horses located at the winery. Elliott and JL are at the ranch in Kentucky eagerly awaiting the arrival of JL’s baby which kept her from being with Kevin in California.
Logan’s depth of research and detail of every nuance of 1870’s Colorado sucked me in so much that I felt like I was walking beside the characters as they described mansions, costumes, businesses, and streets running with muck (and other things 😊). The dinosaur hunting was fascinating! Her descriptions of the flora and fauna of Colorado (my heaven on earth) were spot on and made me feel like I was there enjoying the view along with the characters. The details of the area of Leadville and Morrison make me want to visit for myself!
Sit back, hold onto the reins and enjoy the ride through an era that is captivating, awe inspiring and very titillating.
Amber is staying alone at her families cabin in the mountains. The cabin and portions of it's contents have been in the family for generations. Imagine her surprise when a puzzle box containing an amber brooch falls out of their ancient loom. She opens the puzzle box, reads the inscription on the brooch, then finds herself transported to an eighteenth century mining town where she proceeds to have the adventure of a lifetime.
So why only 4 stars this time? While I enjoyed the story and loved its attention to historical events and it's accurate description of how people lived and worked I found Amber to be just too much! Amber is a genius, everything she does comes easily to her and is perfect. She is a professional chef, attorney, AND paleontologist. She is a raving beauty who draws men like bees to honey, is an outstanding guitar player, vocalist, and entertainer (who could easily go professional) and the list goes on. So, while I enjoyed the story itself, Amber I found to be too over the top. I know there are people who are really good at a specific thing or two but nobody, not even Einstein is perfect at everything!
