NEW BOOK RELEASE….
When New York reporter Paige MacKenzie heads to Tres Palomas, New Mexico, the resort of Agua Encantada seems a perfect destination to combine work with pleasure. A quick article on the healing mineral springs and a few leisurely soaking sessions in the resort’s soothing waters promises well-deserved rest and relaxation.
Paige is immediately intrigued with a local artist’s one-of-a-kind jewelry designs, as well as weekly gatherings to hear legends from an elderly storyteller. But when identical jewelry shows up on another guest and the storyteller goes missing, Paige’s R&R is soon redefined as restlessness and risk. Curious and persistent by nature, Paige is convinced there’s a connection. Enlisting the help of a flirtatious resort worker seems like a good idea until it begins to test her loyalty to her favorite cowboy, Jake Norris. Will an unexpected overnight trip to Tierra Roja Casino lead her to the answers she seeks, or are darker secrets lurking along the way?

Reviews I kept reading called this a ‘cozy’ mystery and I had zero clue what that meant.
Now that I have read it, I guess I could agree with the term ‘cozy’.
Three Silver Doves is a mystery. And while it is semi predictable, there were a few twists that I didn’t quite have figured out.
What Three Silver Doves is not, is violent, anxiety filled suspense, or really action packed. It is a nice, cozy, easy read mystery that has you guessing, but not fearing.
I had not read a previous book by this author or involving these characters, but I did not feel like I missed out on much at all (except maybe the relationship between Paige and Jake which wasn’t really a main focus in this book.)
The characters were all likable; the environment sounded heavenly; and the mystery was like a fun little puzzle with some surprises.
Overall, if you are someone who enjoys a good mystery that isn’t full of violence and anxiety ridden suspense, this is a great read.
