Today’s team review is from Karen, she blogs here https://mytrainofthoughtson.wordpress.com
Karen has been reading Fool’s Gold by P.J. Skinner
This book focuses on geologist Sam; in need of a job she accepts an offer that takes her to the rainforests of Sierramar, to an adventure that gets her in some unanticipated situations.
With “Fool’s Gold”, PJ Skinner has created a slowly yet steadily developing adventure around Sam Harris. The story comprises a variety of characters with sufficient depth, drama, surprising turns which are solved as the story continues, and interesting geological/archaeological passages. I had a good time reading “Fool’s Gold” – it is the beginning of a promising series. I was drawn into the story having finished the first chapter, already getting closer to Sam.
This is for you if you like female protagonists, characters with an agenda, and slower-paced (yet not too slow) adventures.
A promising first book in a new series.
Indiana Jones wannabe finds adventure a little tougher than she expected.
It’s 1987. Geologist Sam Harris is a woman in a man’s world – naive and underpaid, but resilient and passionate. Desperate for her first job, she accepts a contract with a dodgy entrepreneur exploring for gold in the remote rainforests of Sierramar.
When she uncovers a clue to a treasure buried deep within the jungle, she is sent on an expedition to find it, but one of her colleagues is plotting to seize the hoard and will kill to get his hands on it.
Will Sam find the treasure or will her first adventure be her last?
If you like gutsy heroines, exotic locations, and complex characters, then you’ll love PJ Skinner’s thrilling novel.
