Weaver's Needle

By Robin Caroll

Description:

Two recovery specialists. One murder. A hunt for the Dutchman's Lost Gold Mine becomes a race of survival.   Former Army MP Landry Parker fell into the recovery specialist role quite by accident—to help her ailing father. Now that she’s on her own, she is determined to prove herself and honor her family legacy. After being shot in the line of duty, former police officer Nickolai Baptiste became a recovery specialist, and he’s good at his job—maybe even the best.             A potential client pits Landry and Nickolai against one another to find the Dutchman’s Lost Gold Mine map that was stolen from her murdered husband, and the potential payday is too enticing to pass up. The trail takes them from New Orleans to Weaver’s Needle in Arizona where legend claims the mine is hidden. Landry and Nickolai are no strangers to adventure, but the unlikely partners quickly discover there’s someone after the treasure and there are those who want to ensure the lost mine in Arizona’s Superstition Mountain stays lost forever. Can Landry and Nickolai work together despite their distrust of each other to save the legend before more innocent lives are lost? Will they find the real treasure isn’t the gold, but something more valuable. . .true love and understanding?

Book Takeaway:

I never sit down and plot out a spiritual thread. Instead, usually an issue I’m working on myself comes out in the story, perhaps in a way I hadn’t previously considered. A lot of my stories, like in Weaver’s Needle, have a theme of forgiveness. I think that’s because I’m constantly striving to accept forgiveness. As a human, I often find it difficult to give forgiveness and 100% forget offenses, yet God is constantly giving me examples of how vast His love and forgiveness is to all of us. And while I sincerely hope readers enjoy the adventure of the story, if they take away anything after reading Weaver’s Needle, I hope they look at forgiveness in a new light.

Why the author wrote this book:

One of the things I most enjoyed while writing this story was being able to pull into the story was the customs and beliefs of Native Americans. I was so fortunate to be able to speak to a Native American who had lived in the area and knew the customs of the tribes there. He shared with me details of some of their ceremonies and rituals, the meanings of such, as well as their traditions. Learning about this lifestyle was an experience for me that I thoroughly enjoyed. Being able to weave elements of this vivid culture into Weaver’s Needle, and making it a vital part of the plot and characterization, was truly a highlight of writing the book for me.
