Julia is a reporter in a small town. Hoping to earn her way to bigger stories, she starts investigating the poisoned deaths of some fish and cats. It may be related to the recent flooding, but Julia is hoping for something more interesting than an accident. Her investigation leads her and her husband John into an adventure that they might not survive.

I liked the plot and storyline. It was interesting and fast paced. In the beginning the title seemed to fit more with John's interests than Julia's

Anasazi Intrigue
Linda Weaver Clarke

This is first in a series of 4 about the adventures of John and Julia Evans. Julia is a newspaper reporter for the town’s local paper, always on the look for that big break and the ‘assignment of a lifetime’. Typically getting the stereotypical ‘fluff’ stories, Julia’s interest is peaked when she finds a number of dead fish and cats killed by cyanide. She is determined to find out what is poisoning the water and who is sneaking up the mountainside to the abando

Some time ago I had the pleasure of reading” Mayan Intrigue” by Linda Weaver Clarke. It was the second book in a series called “The Adventures of John and Julia Evans.” That story did intrigue me and I wrote a review. Ms. Clarke liked it and asked me to read her first novel in the series, “Anasazi Intrigue.” Pleased by her invitation, I complied with Ms Weaver’s wishes and downloaded a copy to my trusted Kindle. To my personal delight I enjoyed “AnasazI Intrigue” as well if not more than “Mayan ...more

I am so pleased to find yet another clean romance, and this book adds history and mystery to this genre. It is a well-written story with lots of heart. The characters are believable, and the story will keep you one's attention.

I love the fact that there is no foul language, sex, and any graphic violence. I get so tired of reading books are spoiled with these elements. This book is still engaging without being offensive.

I loved the chemistry between Julia and John. So often romances are limited t

Linda Weaver Clarke fans will be thrilled to see her combine her sweet romantic stories, historical tidbits, and intrigue in her John and Julia Evans Mystery Series. Why I feel Anasazi Intrigue (Book 1) and the rest of this series will be a hit with Clarke's fans is because she stays true to her sweet romance and history loving readers by blending these elements into an intriguing mystery.

John and Julia Evans are a married couple with grown children. It's nice to see a romantic element to a stor

Linda Weaver Clarke has been writing historical fiction for years, and she also travels the country giving workshops on preserving family history through telling stories. Her new Intrigue mystery series departs slightly from her traditional historic fiction, blending her knowledge of ages past with her ability to spin a fun adventure with interesting characters. The depiction of the ancient cities is very interesting.

I must say the writing could have been stronger--there is a lot of passive word

A true adventure book! You learn about the Anasazi Indians, artifact theft, and the flood of 2005 in southern Utah. Being from southern Utah, I was impressed with the author's detailed account about the flooding. It has plenty of adventure and mystery. Great Read!
