Final Resort by Dana Mentink

How is everything going for you this new year? We all are doing much better. Thank you for your prayers. My little great granddaughter was able to come home from the hospital yesterday. She had the type A influenza and pneumonia. She was hit hard, she's only 18 months old. We are all happy to be better.

My book review today is the final book in the series of Treasure Seekers, a Love Inspired Suspense by Dana Mentink. I love Dana's books, they are always well written and full of intrigue. This one was the perfect ending to her series. I have really enjoyed this series and I hate to see it end. I know they must all end at some time but I hate to loose these friendships. For these people truly have become friends.

Ava Stanton returns to Whisper Mountain Resort to ready it for sale. The resort has lost everything and needs to be dealt with. Her uncle Paul tells her he has found the pearl of great price and will save the resort, before he can share his treasure with her, he is kidnapped. Uncle Paul has always been a dreamer but Ava loves him with all her heart. He has squandered all of the funds so Ava doesn't believe there is a treasure, until strange things begin to happen.

Luca Gage is part owner of the Treasure Seekers Inc. He was once very fond of Ava and is thinking of her while he is skiing. He sees a man on a snowmobile chase after Ava and her uncle, he skis off to the rescue.
He wasn't able to save Paul but he was able to save Ave when she fell through thin ice. He offers to help Ava find her uncle and the treasure.

Ava had always been attracted to the boy who once spent his time at the resort next to them. Ava lost her family when her father was in an accident that had left him paralyzed and her mother to depression and then to suicide. She knew no one that was happily married and had no use for love, and must protect herself from Luca. She doesn't want his help, after all he was only here for the treasure but as accidents, dead bodies, and threats take place she is drawn to him and to his God.

It is an excellent story of redemption, forgiveness, and love. I love the way Dana weaves her own faith into the story. I hope you will read this book, I know you will love it. God Bless you all. You can find out more about Dana's books at
