The Katie Walsh Mysteries, #1

4 Star review by Sandy Ponton at InD’tale Magazine

“Trove” is a tempting beginning to a promising series.
The steamy love story is cleverly threaded through a secondary tale of lies and intrigue and keeps the pages turning effortlessly . . .   Trove delivers its treasure. X marks the spot!




The Katie Walsh Mysteries, #1

4 Star review by Diana Coyle at Night Owl Reviews (NOR)

This was an enjoyable story with just the right mix of mystery, murder and romance. I loved the chemistry between Alec MacGowan and Katie Walsh and I really wanted them to be together. I also loved how it spanned between Boston and Scotland. I enjoy reading mysteries and I especially have a soft spot for stories that take place in Scotland, so I found this to be the perfect mix for me to really sit back and lose myself in. Ms. Montgomery provided me with plenty of twists and turns in her storyline to keep me riveted to my seat and she sprinkled it with a budding romance between Alec and Katie to make my heart swoon. I enjoyed this book so much that I found myself burning through the pages to see what was going to happen next. If you’re in the market for a book that contains intrigue, mystery, romance and murder, than look no further. Nicely done, Ms. Montgomery!

Alec MacGowan, a handsome and sexy archaeologist, is in search of finding the person who murdered his friend. He’ll stop at nothing to find the killer. Katie Walsh, a beautiful mythologist in search of Norland, lends a hand to Alec to see if she can assist him in finding out who killed his friend. These two have a past together and working with each other seems to have reignited the sparks that burn between them. Are Alec and Katie able to find out who the killer is before he strikes again – this time making one of them the victim?

This review is from: Trove (The Katie Walsh Mysteries) (Kindle Edition)
Really loved this book! It was the right combination of romance/mystery. Katie is going to be a fun person to follow. She reminds me a bit of Stephanie Plum in the Janet Evonavich “One for the Money” series. An interesting combination of giving closure to this story, but leaving some unanswered questions too!….

This review is from: Trove: The Katie Walsh Mysteries (Volume 1) (Paperback)

What happens when anonymous lovers reunite five years later?
Explosive, tantalizing from page one, Trove will hold on to you and not let go… then like a lost lover, Trove will leave you begging for more.
This page burner was one of the most exciting books I have had the privilege to lay my hands on this year and I cannot recommend this debut author enough. Five stars not only shine brightly for this masterfully crafted work of art but shines for the creative mind of its creator.
Meet handsome archeologist Alec MacGowan who is searching desperately for the murderer of his friend.
Meet Katie Walsh, a mythologist who is searching for clues to uncover mythic Norland.
When thrown together can these two set aside their past long enough to work together or will they become tangled in the author’s weave of attraction, deception, mystery and false leads? Will Katie be able to make some sort of sense of the murder man’s notes before they are stopped?
Beware; this book is not just for the romance lover. Lovers of suspense, mystery, mythology and intrigue will surely find their fill here.
I should mention I was given a copy of this wonderful book by a dear friend who thought I would like it. Guess what, I didn’t like it… I LOVED IT!

This is not your typical mystery. Trove has so many facets: as the story unfolds, the richer the tale becomes. Katie Walsh is a spitfire and the perfect match for Alec. Just when you think you have the plot figured out, Montgomery throws in a surprise twist. I can’t wait for the next Katie Walsh Mystery! I loved Willie. I hope we see more of him.

This is a very well written beginning to a series of books about Katie Walsh. When I read a series it’s important for me to like/relate to the main character right away. I certainly did with this character, even when I didn’t like some of her actions or choices! She clearly grows through the story and tries to be less of a ‘geek’, or social misfit, so watching her go through this is a great part of the experience. I think this is more mystery than romance, but still plenty of romance to keep it interesting.

Although I prefer series, I know not everyone does, this does not end with a cliff hanger, so everyone can enjoy the book as a stand alone too. But after reading it, I think it’s impossible not to want to know ‘what happens next?’. I am looking forward to the next book.
