Treasure at Blue Heron Lake

Authors: Susan Page Davis and Megan Elaine Davis
Publisher: Heartsong Presents Mysteries
ISBN: 978-1-60260-043-0
Genre: Inspirational/cozy mystery

Emily Gray and her friend, Nate Holman, go out to visit Nate’s friends hunting lodge. While there, an intruder thumps around in the night. As a journalist, Emily is intrigued, especially when she learns that there is a mysterious legend involving a hidden treasure. She asks permission to write an article about the lodge and the mystery, and the owner, Jeff Lewis, is quick to give it.

Soon after that, one of Jeff’s guides is murdered, and Jeff is the prime suspect. Emily and Nate are anxious to clear their friend, but things are looking even grimmer when additional crimes point to Jeff as well. Is the legend of the lost treasure behind the murder and the other crimes?

I read this duos first cozy Homicide at Blue Treasure Lake but I think TREASURE AT BLUE HERON LAKE is definitely the best of the two. I enjoyed getting to know Nate and Emily better and watch as they interacted with Jeff and the other secondary characters.

The legend of the hidden treasure was definitely a positive factor for this book, as I couldn’t help but wonder if the treasure really existed, and if it did, who hid it, and who would find it. I thoroughly enjoyed TREASURE AT BLUE HERON LAKE. $6.95. 247 pages.
