Ava Stanton has no need for love or tales of hidden treasure—until her uncle is kidnapped at her family’s ski resort. Now she needs help from professional treasure hunter Luca Gage…the man she’d tried to forget. Signs point to a fortune hidden in the mountain, and Ava and Luca need to find her uncle before his assailant finds them. As their search for treasure draws them closer together, Ava must decide how long she’ll run from love. She doesn’t have much time, because something is buried under Whisper Mountain—and someone is willing to do anything to get to it.
Final Resort started off a bit slow compared to most Love Inspired Suspenses I’ve read and a little too slow for my taste,
but once the suspense picked up it was a hard book to put down. Having never experienced a ski resort, I really enjoyed the setting Mentink painted.
Ava and Luca, both strong characters, popped off the page. So did Mack Dog, great visual and use of characterization.
My favorite part about this book is the Indiana Jones feel. I loved the suspense and the inability to figure out who the true villain was but I loved the treasure hunting even more.
