      My apologies to the author for this but I could not finish this book At 48% into it I could not tie it together The two main characters still had not connected and the story just wandered all over Wyoming An author friend of mine, while mentoring me with my own work in progress, reminded me of a plaque he saw A smart woman gets to the point Hmmm, I think that would have been a good rule of thumb here I rarely, really rarely, leave a book behind unfinished I just can t find enough interest to fin [...]

      What an unbelievably AWFUL book DNF at 30% I could not stomach another moment, not even for a challenge.

      This is one of the first books I ve ever rated below a 3 I couldn t get into it for the life of me I can usually finish a book in a week or less but this one took me a month because every time I read it I lost interest and found something else to do I don t like how it took over half the book to really get interesting And then I feel like at the end the interesting stuff was just brushed away Like what happened to what Paige discovered and those people she talked to and does she ever show Jake A [...]

      Great book This is a light, quick mystery with adventure and a hint of romance The author s bio says she is a travel writer and you can certainly tell that from her writing Her descriptions of scenery and the towns are so vivid and appealing The story takes place in and around Jackson Hole, Wyoming which never appealed to a city girl like me but, after reading this book, I ll have to consider it This is her first novel and I hope there are to come in the future.

    5. Pauline on said:

      This book was vaguely familiar While the writing is clear, there is far too much description Out of nowhere, including the book description, there was time travel.It reads close to a travel book on Montana The reason the book was familiar is that I read another one of Deborah s books that was similarly too descriptive I don t need to know that she shut off the car engine, removed the key, opened the door and stepped out unless it ties into something.

    6. Katie on said:

      I did not finish this book I got this book for free as a kindle daily deal I did not enjoy the main character, Paige, who comes across as a stalker and only gets away with it because she s female If the characters were reversed, and Jake climbed over her fence and peered in her windows, he d get arrested Then she follows him around town because she saw him talking to another guy ONE TIME and knows there must be some story behind it It seems very unrealistic The writing was pretty blah, and I was [...]

    7. Kimberly on said:

      Interesting book, with some unexpected time travel Which wasn t really explained too well, but I m hoping gets explained in future books I liked both Paige and Jake, although it took nearly 2 3rds of the book for them to finally meet O The mystery was simple, but who doesn t love a good treasure hunt I would be interested in reading future books to see how things go.

    8. StacieHaden on said:

      The author should get opinions from people who aren t afraid to hurt her feelings, before publishing Drags along and then poof, out of nowhere, at 37% she goes back in time to old Jackson Hole, for like 5 minutes exxageration , and then back to modern day More dragging along and then back in time for 5 minutes exaggeration to learn exactly where the gold is hidden We had already been subjected at tedium to Jake s search for the gold It was a waste of pages She could have cut the book down to 2 p [...]

      o my god what a good and very lovely book I love it the Story of the treasure was so good I loved the setting both now and a 100 years back Paige and Jake are so cute and good together I knew Maddy and Old Man Thompson were up to something the antler arch and the skeleton key trough me for a loop the first time but it was so awesome the cabin I wouldn t mind to stay in for a couple day with books and needle work I hope that in the next book Paige gets to reconnect with Jake I really felt at home [...]

      Filled with historyI am a history lover and this book is filled with great true information along with a great what if story of history I found myself engulfed on the descriptions of the Wyoming area and it s glorious geographical scenery The story was typical of stories passed down from generation to generation and the wonder of its possibilities.

    11. S.A. Molteni on said:

      Above the Bridge by Deborah Garner is nicely written cozy mystery with a touch of time travel woven in for a unique plot twist later in the story.The story centers on Paige MacKenzie, a journalist visiting Jackson Hole, Wyoming who is there to write an article for a magazine that she is employed by about the local area and the history behind the town Paige uncovers many secrets from the colorful and sometimes dangerous local crowd One secret in particular could be worth a sizable amount of money [...]

      Dollycas s ThoughtsI purchased this book a few weeks ago because it was set in Wyoming and I needed to read a book set in that state for my Where Are You Reading Challenge and the synopsis intrigued me too.I was very surprised by this story led us readers and Paige MacKenzie and I don t want to give anything away but the mystery does take a track off the well trodden path the Jake was taking.I liked these characters Paige is an adventurous woman and proves it than once Jake is searching for a t [...]

      New York reporter Paige Mackenzie comes to Wyoming to find a story She is a good researcher and hopes to maybe happen on a story her readers and her editor will love She settles on the town of Jackson Hole, and as she becomes acquainted with a few of the locals, she wonders about a bit of suspense she feels as surveys the locale The author does a great job at the descriptions of the beauty of western Wyoming.Although it is pretty difficult to describe in words the wonders of the Grand Tetons I l [...]

      Above the Bridge is the story of a reporter from New York who makes her way to Jackson Hole, WY to research a story about the Old West Her investigation leads her to a legend of buried treasure and to a very attractive cowboy I loved reading about Jackson Hole, the mountains, and the way of life in this small town The story has a romantic component though it s only part of the story and there are no sex scenes There are extensive references to and descriptions of the area It was, at times, a lit [...]

    15. Bryan D. on said:

      In Above the Bridge, Deborah Garner reminds us that just because a book is a mystery, it doesn t mean there has to be a murder Set in the historic Wyoming town of Jackson, the story follows journalist Paige MacKenzie who has come out from New York to research an article about well that s just it What will her research reveal Toss in a handsome single man, a mysterious supernatural glow, and the Grand Tetons, and you have the makings of a very enjoyable read Parts of the story are just too weird [...]

    16. Constant Reader on said:

      While I finished this book it left me flat I felt the story could have been stronger The setting is great but the book was too much travelogue and not enough story Not at all believable to find a cabin in Jackson for 80 bucks a week any time in the last 20 years Not that the time travel aspect is believable but it had the potential to be fun but it didn t have the strength to assist the story As I write this I actually feel my 3 Stars are generous.

    17. Virginia Hill on said:

      This was a slow paced cozy mystery The pacing wasn t what I took issue with, however What I didn t care for was the out of the blue time travel sequences that took Paige from modern day Jackson Hole back to the Jackson Hole of 1909 It was unclear exactly what happened, and when it happened a second time I was hoping for some sort of clarification or, at least, some sign that Paige would freak out a little Geez, she took it all in stride, which was ridiculous.

    18. Mary Stockwell on said:

      Good readingI m not one for reading mysteries but this book had enough intrigue and romance to hold my interest I spent one night in Jackson Hole several years ago so it was fun to read about it.

    19. Michelle on said:

      Deborah Garner makes the landscape and the people come to life This story was enchanting with a hint of romance, intrigue, and an unpredictale story line I received this book as part of the giveaways I thoroughly enjoyed this light, descriptive story.

      Fun readingFun quick book just enough magic and adventure with a bit of love looking forward to reading the next one.

    21. Denise on said:

      A very nice beginning to the Paige and Jake story I enjoyed the characterizations and the way the author fit in the local legends of present day and the past Good light reading

    22. Elizabeth on said:

      I loved this book Time travel, mystery, a touch of romance, and a setting that is so well described I felt like I was there I can t wait until she writes another

    23. Elise Stone on said:

      I downloaded this book quite a while ago, most likely during a free promotion, and so didn t remember the book description when I started reading it recently I spent the first third of the book waiting for the murder to happen.There is no murder in this mystery I ve come to expect every mystery to have a murder, and it took a little while to adjust to the fact that this is not a murder mystery.That doesn t mean it s a bad book Quite the contrary I enjoyed the story quite a lot, once I got over m [...]

    24. Debbie on said:

      Interesting book with story lines left open that could leave to another book I have no idea if that is something that will happen.The story started off rather normally with girl goes to new town for work, girl sees guy, girl,does her work, sees guy, sees unusual situation but never one of those sudden gotta have him her in the middle of the story Instead you do see a developing relationship What you do not get is an explanation of some, shall we say, other worldly events Did they happen Was it a [...]

    25. Judy on said:

      I marked this book as read, since there is no option for tried but did not completely read it I tried on 3 separate occasions to get into the plot and read the book and just could not The author is very descriptive of coffees bought, landscape surroundings, buildings rooms, but I did not get any attachment to the characters After reading for three sessions, I gave up trying to get immersed in the plot In the past, I never gave up on a book, but as I am getting ever nearer to 60 yrs of age, I don [...]

      Paige is an investigative reporter from NY sent to Jackson Hole, WY, on an assignment She finds than a mere story when she meets an attractive cowboy by the name of Jake Jake grew up hearing tales of hidden gold and wasn t sure if it s real or his grandfather s imagination Paige is independent and curious sometimes too curious for her own good Together they make a good team at sorting fact from fiction This was an enjoyable read, light on romance which is fine with a neat way to blend the past [...]

    27. Kaye on said:

      I did finish the book It has to be totally offensive for me to give one star I have two ideas An editor and maybe this type of story would be appropriate for a middle school reader I noticed there was nothing close to sex and the jumping back and forth in time might be something that would appeal to an 11 or 12 year old reader I feel this could be rewritten cleaning up glaring errors like a 27 acre ranch and a 50 foot high barn roof to be an appealing story for the younger set.

    28. marcia mccoy on said:

      Started slow but gained steam laterI don t usually enjoy this type of writing with so much detail on everything, everyone, and all that happens In fact, I started skipping over paragraphs ju s t reading the first and last sentences When it came to the part at the arc hes in the town square, I considered not finishing the book, but I m glad I kept going because it was very interesting and I really enjoyed the ending It was much believable

    29. Leslie on said:

      A Comfortable Easy ReadDeborah Garner writes with an engaging style, and a plot that could become an entertaining Hallmark movie A IGot and captivating tale with an implausible and unexplained twist comes to a nice conclusion It unfortunately fails to even attempt to explain away a whimsical plot twist that is supposed to pull the story together A fun vacation read for someone spending time in Wyoming.

    30. Connie Bambrick on said:

      Sorry, but way too much description of the area While the area is undoubtedly extremely beautiful and picturesque, it took forever to get book started Story hard to get into Almost didin t finish but kept hoping it would get better but it didn t Then time travel in the middle Not what I was expecting in a mystery book.
