Book Review & Giveaway: Hutchins Creek Cache by Deborah Garner



Paige MacKenzie heads to the town of Hutchins Creek, Colorado, to research Old West railroad history for The Manhattan Post, with plans to meet up with her favorite cowboy, Jake Norris.

When a mysterious coin from the 1920’s is discovered behind the Hutchins Creek Railroad Museum, Paige starts digging into four generations of Hutchins family history.

As legends of steam engines and coin mintage mingle, will Paige discover the true origin of the coin or will she find herself dangerously close to more than one long-hidden town secret?

My Review

This is the first Paige MacKenzie novel I’ve read but I did read A Flair for Chardonnay by Deborah Garner so I knew that I like her writing and her sense of humor, so I was happy to read Hutchins Creek Cache

Paige MacKenzie is a reporter who tends to get into scrapes when she’s working on an article. Her boyfriend, Jake, meets up with her while she is on her newest assignment in Hutchins Creek so that they can have some time together. I love that Jake accepts how Paige is when it comes to her curiosity. He doesn’t try to change her but he does tease her about it, which is funny.

Hutchins Creek Cache is a quick and fun read. It’s obvious that the author did a lot of research on coins and railroad lines in the west and she made it interesting to read about by including it in this mystery.

I definitely recommend Hutchins Creek Cache and look forward to reading more of Deborah Garner’s books.

I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.
