Celebrating the Book Launch of Montezuma Intrigue


Montezuma Intrigue
The Adventures of John and Julia Evans

The search for Montezuma's treasure, mysterious events, a good-looking rogue, and family secrets! When a leather parchment of Montezuma’s map is found in great-grandfather Evans’ old chest, April and the twins know this summer is going to be a memorable one. The girls want to search for it but their father is against it for some mysterious reason. With Julia’s help, she and the girls convince John to go on a treasure hunt. Is Montezuma’s treasure a legend or reality? Whatever the case, John insists on keeping their little treasure hunt a secret. If certain people find out about it, the family could be in danger.

While searching for Montezuma’s treasure, Matthew is trying to get the courage to tell April how he feels about her. How does he tell his kindred friend that she means more to him than just a friend? Oblivious of Matthew’s feelings for her, April is gradually learning the importance of her heritage. Who were her ancestors and why have they kept a certain “secret” all these years?

Suko’s Notebook wrote, “In the latest book by Linda Weaver Clarke, Montezuma Intrigue, the mysteries continue as this author entrances us with life-like characters and electrifying adventures. The search for Montezuma's treasure is both exciting and memorable. I enjoyed the adventure and suspense in her latest novel, which kept me reading well into the night.”

This is what captured my attention, as it has ramifications in my family of origin:
"She carefully unbuckled the leather straps that hugged the chest and allowed them to fall to the floor. She unlatched the lever that was holding it shut and slowly raised the lid. As it creaked open, Sharlene and Faith held their breath and stared at the contents in the chest."

I was drawn in by the opening paragraphs of "Anasazi Intrigue". Having recently witnessed the devastating affects of water myself, it felt so real.
