Publisher's Summary

The discovery of a priceless artifact puts Julia's life in great danger! 

From valuable artifacts to shady businessmen, the Yucatan Peninsula becomes a dangerous vacation spot for John and Julia Evans. While on assignment for the newspaper, the Evanses try to enjoy a romantic vacation among the Mayan ruins, but when Julia accidentally comes upon a couple suspicious men exchanging an item, she quickly turns and leaves, but it is too late. The men have seen her.

As a reporter, Julia does not easily give up, and her curiosity gets them in a mess of trouble. Before John and Julia realize what is going on, they are both in danger and find themselves running for their lives through the jungles of the Yucatan.

Another Adventure with Julia and John

I think I liked this second book better than the first because we were able to see the character/relationship flaws between John and Julia more, which normalized them for me. I actually really liked their daughters, who we got to experience more of in this book. I enjoy the mystery that the author takes us through on this romantic getaway. Well written and detailed, the scenery descriptions are vivid and fun. This one also seemed a bit more suspenseful than the first.

The narration is great in this performance. The narrator does an excellent job capturing the nature of the story and keeping our attention.

Excellent Book!!

This is my first Linda Weaver Clarke book. It was excellent. The characters are well developed. The plot well thought out with a nice surprising twist at the end. And extra benefits of intrigue, action, and history. It captures your attention from start to finish! Clean and great for the whole family, including preteens and younger children (8 and above) with an elevated reading/comprehension level.

I listened through Audible and Carolyn Kashner did an excellent job of making the story come to life. Her vocal development of the characters were spot on.

What an adventure!

Linda Weaver Clarke is so good at writing these mysteries! While I really enjoy the story of Julia and John, I have to say, she whets my appetite for the history she includes in the story too! This one takes us to the Mayan Ruins and with Julia's keen sense for investigating finds them caught up in an artifact smuggling ring. It's full of suspense and adventure, a little romance with April and Matthew, the loving and adventurous relationship of Julia and John and some plot twists we don't see coming! I get so caught up in the scenery and the history, loving the reading of the gold papers and hieroglyphics. Then having injury and infection, fight scenes and bullets with protectiveness beyond compare, it's like an Indiana Jones movie in my mind! Carolyn Kashner continues the wonderful narration, keeping me engaged and enthralled as I wonder who I can trust and if they will survive! Another great listen!

Interesting and enjoyable

I have listened to a couple of books by Linda Weaver Clark and I think this one is my favourite to date. The narrator Carolyn Kashner did a good job with all the voices which enhanced my enjoyment of this book.
 
This was a a book filled with danger, suspense secrets and lies. It was also full of interesting history and romance which I found captivating.

The intrigue and mystery, not to mention the danger kept me on the edge of my seat as I listened to this story. There were times that I felt I was in the Yucatan jungle with Julia and John.
 
I liked the main characters of John and Julia Evans, their dynamic worked well together. There were many twists, turns and surprises in Mayan Intrigue as Julia and John follow the clues and I have to say that I was taken by surprise on a couple of occasions.

Enjoyed this so very much

I have enjoyed all of Linda Weaver Clarke's books, including her Audible versions of her books. I have also been very "intrigued" with early civilizations, such as the Mayans.

I loved how this romance mystery had lots of real moments between John and Julia, not always total bliss but a little strife, if you will.

The story is great and you don't know who are the good or the bad guys. Who do you trust? And who will protect them as the smugglers are closing in on them?

It's a good mystery and I love the smuggling story line. I also liked how Julia and John shared moments of faith and some moments when that faith perhaps wavered just a bit. Real human feelings.

I think you will love it. Carolyn Kashner was a great voice for the story and I loved her interpretations and also her "accent" which was fun to listen to.

I received an Audible version from the author. All thoughts are my own.

Exciting Twists and Turns

This is a great story with many twists and turns. John and Julia's characters are well developed and true to book 1. I enjoyed how well the story was thought out with little hints of suspense throughout each chapter. Once or twice I was a little frustrated with Julia's character, but that made her more real. There were a few times that I felt that the author didn't need to spell out every detail (such as what some of the vocabulary meant or some of the old-time phrases. But maybe younger readers would need those explanations.) Intrigue is a great word for this series!
I received a copy of this audiobook for my honest review.

A light hearted intrigue

This is such a fun story. I love how the married couple interact. And without giving too much away I enjoyed how the girls got even with the boys in another part of the story. I imagine the author had to do a lot of research and it was all very interesting. Can’t wait for more!
