Reviewed by Paul Johnson for Readers Favorite:
I have a fondness for action-adventure along with a little mystery and this book fits the bill nicely. I found the characters well-conceived, particularly the main character, a man who suddenly finds his world turned upside down. The dialogue is very good as well. The plot moves along at a solid pace with enough action to keep the readers' interest. There are some serious action sequences that will completely grab the reader. Overall, I found "Queen's Gold" to be a well-written and enjoyable story.
The plot is fast and the characters are credible and yield just enough curiosity and willingness to make this one heck of a great adventurous yarn. Great summer reading or for any other season! So relax and get ready to explore the amazing, awesome wonders of past lives! --Viviane Crystal

Her stories flirt with fantasy/paranormal in a way that makes you think twice about things of which you might say, `Nah! No way!' And in this particular story, one of the main characters says exactly that: it's a tale in which both reader (well, this one!) and protagonist find themselves in agreement.
Widower Hal Thompson's two children strike a bargain with him: fervent believers of hypnotic regression, they promise to stop trying to convince him that there really is something in it if he will just agree to one session. If it doesn't `happen' for him, then Brian and Wendy promise they'll never raise the subject again. Backed into a corner, Hal agrees. The experience proves to be unsettling for Hal when he `remembers' not only the whereabouts of some ancient Aztec gold, but also...disarmingly...a long-lost love. Reluctant to admit to his children his scepticism might have been misplaced, he is soon shocked into shedding his misgivings when things get gravely personal. His 'memories', it appears, are of crucial importance to some ruthless people.
This story changes gear dramatically after the first few pages: it starts off at a very pleasant, leisurely pace, and suddenly, it's `sit up and take notice'.
I must confess, however, of all the books I've read by this author, I'm not so sure I'd put this one at the top of the list. I fell in love with the wholesomeness that was the Thompsons, but parts of the plot were just a teensy bit unsubstantial, hurried even. That said, the ending is climactic and gripping.
Notwithstanding, this was an enjoyable read and a very welcome addition to my collection of this author's books.
I received a complementary copy of this book in order to review it.
He realizes that his memories tell him where there is hidden Aztec gold. He doesn't think to much about it. However, many others take it very seriously. His family starts receiving threats and he's forced into a wild expedition across Mexico. Hal then has to relive his past life as a soldier named Hernan Cortes in the sixteenth century army.
Scientists have become very interested in the location of the gold, and that is when the real journey begins. He finds himself in Mexico trying to find the gold to stop more bloodshed.
I have to highly recommend this book as it is a fast pace and huge page turner. It gives you the ability to really feel that you may have a past life. Past life regression is not something I'm greatly knowledgeable about. I have read on it some. This book has made me very curious to think about it.

“Queen’s Gold” is an exciting story about Past-Life Regression and finding treasure or the “Queen’s Gold” from just an unclear past-life memory. Hal Thompson, single father of two young adult children is encouraged to undergo past-life regression, much to his dismay, leading to a once in THIS lifetime adventure.
Without going into too much detail and ruining the book for you, this novel is exciting and full of adventure and mystery! Hal, in his past life had hidden some very valuable jewelry and a Queen’s gold crown in the mountains in a small Mexican village. He is forced now, in the present, by a very wicked foe from his past and present, to find this gold or his daughter will be killed by kidnappers.
I totally loved this book and found it very interesting. I would highly recommend to others to read, from fans of adventure and mystery, romance novels, to history buffs and those interested in past life regression. You won’t be disappointed!
