Enjoyable, though I spotted a few plot holes that made it a little harder to get totally lost in the plot. I definitely enjoy Mentink's writing and will be starting another series of hers soon. Do be sure to read books 1 and 2 first to get a good sense of what's going on between the siblings.

Final Resort had a strong hero,strong female characters,mystery,drama,suspense and some romance.
I kept trying to guess who was the bad guy. One of my guesses was right. I did not want to put the book down till I had finshed. This was also a clean read with a little prayer and faith thrown in.
Ava Stanton was meeting her Uncle Paul at the family ski resort that has been closed for years. Ava is ready to sign the papers. Her father wants her to sell. Her Uncle says he found his treasure that

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 th ...more

Ava watches as her uncle is kidnapped, helpless to do anything. What did he want her to find when he had asked her to meet him on top of the resorts mountain? Will treasure seeker and old friend Luca be able to help? So is the plot of this Love Inspired Suspense book. There is some religion found in the story but not enough to be called in your face.

I gave this book 4/5 stars. I liked the action even the deaths that take place add to the story. I thought the characters were not developed well an

Really interesting tale that had my attention the whole time. The pace was wonderful and the characters engaging. Great dynamic in the relationship that made it very believable. Beautiful storytelling that entertained the whole time!

It had really great flow and did the job of making me think at times. I love a book that taps into my e

In Mentink’s love-inspired novel, Ava Stanton has no use for hidden treasures until her uncle is kidnapped. Seeking help, she approaches professional treasure hunter Luca Gage, a man she has worked hard at forgetting. Teaming together, their search for treasure pulls them closer together.

A good installment to the Treasure Seekers series.

A very enjoyable book 3 in a fun series. Now it's time for the Treasure Seekers agency to add a new staff member, maybe a cousin or something, so there can be a fourth book. I'll be sad if this is the last one!

Great surprise Treasure!!!

I can only blame myself really. I didn���t know that this��� imprint��� series��� whatever the effe Love Inspired is considered was the Jesus imprint. Not that I have anything against Christian romance. And it���s not like I HAVE to have graphic content, heavens no. *gigglesnort* Okay, that pun was not intended, and I apologize for it. I just generally avoid it because��� well��� I���ve been burned before.

See, for me, the main criteria for a romance of any genre is the feeling that the character

This was an okay read but my least favorite in the series.

Ava Stanton's uncle is kidnapped at her family's defunct resort before he was able to tell her about a treasure he has in his possession. She is hoping the find is worth enough to save and restore the family resort on Whisper Mountain.

Luca is a skiing friend of Ava's from long ago and it has been a while since they have seen each other when he shows up at Whisper Mountain. By profession Luca is a Treasure Hunter along with his brother and

Recap… in the first book of the series, Brooke Ramsey meets Victor Gage… in the second book, Victor’s sister Stephanie is reunited with Tate Fuego… and in the third (and final) book, their brother Luca is reunited with Ava Stanton.

What happens when Ava’s uncle is kidnapped – and she must rely on Luca Gage and his family to help her? Can she trust him? Can she trust anyone?

Time and again, Luca comes to Ava’s rescue. Oops… okay, I have to stop – or I could give away some really good twists and tur
DNF'd at about 40%.

We learn *nothing* about the heroine except that she insists on laughing off the amusing antics of her con-man uncle (aka the scoundrel, rascal, etc.) despite his decades of being a slimy and manipulative THIEF.

It's OK that Uncle Paul destroyed her parents' marriage, stole her inheritance, and made enemies of ALL their family, friends and neighbors by stealing THEIR money, because he's just so "charming." And, of course, he's *~*FAMILY*~*, which means he gets a pass for EVERYT

Treasures of the heart, love, family, or worldly. Which will you chose? Hopefully the best treasure of all.
Ava returns to Whisper Mountain, a ski resort, to sell it. Her Uncle Paul tells her he can save it. But he is abducted, dies and a treasure hunt follows.
The plot thickens again and again as Luca tries to help Ava solve the mystery of her Uncle's death. But Ava questions his motives over and over gain.
Danger lies ahead for Ava and Luca. So many times their lives hang in the balance. Ava woul

I won this book with goodreads first reads so first off I would like to say thanks. I enjoyed reading this book, full of action it tells the story of Ava who goes back to her childhood home whisper mountain to meet her Uncle Paul who has another treasure quest money plans, so like the hundred of other he has had or so she thought but things don't go to plan when her uncle is kidnapped right in front of her and her old friend Luca, now a professional treasure hunter and a man she tried so hard to ...more

Actually gave 3.5 rating. I liked the pace and the premise of the story. Ava had a tendency toward whining but other than that she was a blast to read. Luca's adventures were enough to give me a heart attack. The two together were the perfect match.

I really like the overall story of Luca and Ava's reunion after meeting in high school. The wrong turns Uncle Paul sent them on for the "pearl," were an entertaining twist. I just wish Victor had a more significant role.

I wish Ava would have grown more throughout the book.
Out of all the characters in the book I would say Luca was my favorite. :)

I enjoyed the other titles in the Treasure Seekers series, but unfortunately this one didn't hold my attention. The presence of Mack Dog was good.

I felt like I was watching a Scooby-Doo mystery. Twists and turns, suspense and the like. It was an easy read. There were a few elements in this book that made you ponder things about life.
