Final Resort by Dana Mentink

Final ResortBook Desciption:
Ava Stanton has no need for love or tales of hidden treasure—until her uncle is kidnapped at her family's ski resort. Now she needs help from professional treasure hunter Luca Gage…the man she'd tried to forget. Signs point to a fortune hidden in the mountain, and Ava and Luca need to find her uncle before his assailant finds them. As their search for treasure draws them closer together, Ava must decide how long she'll run from love. She doesn't have much time, because something is buried under Whisper Mountain—and someone is willing to do anything to get to it.

My Thoughts:
I completely enjoyed this book.  Ava has come up to Whisper Mountain to meet with her adventure seeking uncle and sell her family's mountain home.  At the meeting, her uncle is kidnapped and she literally runs into a former acquaintance Luca.  Luca is now a treasure hunter and he and his family are now on the case to find the treasure Uncle Paul was abducted for.  Problem is, Luca and Ava are drawn to each other and there are too many secrets between them and people willing to do anything to keep those secrets!
I liked all the characters in this book.  Ava is such a wonderful character, full of love for her family and hesitation when it comes to trusting others.  She has a painful past and so much heartache.  Luca is such an adventurer that you have to like him.  His sister and her husband add a little flare and make me want to read their story.  It wasn't immediately obvious who the bad guys were but not a shock either.  I liked the story line and the insight that God is there for us even when we aren't open and speaking to him.  He loves us regardless.
I rate this a 4/5.  I plan to read the earlier ones in the Treasure Seekers series!
Thank you to the publisher for the review copy of this book (via netgalley).  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
