    Lisa Carter in her new book, Beneath a Navajo Moon published by Abingdon Press brings us into the life of Erin Dawson.

    From the back cover: What happens when love and danger collide deep in the heart of The Navajo Nation?

    The search for a woman who disappeared in 1906 leads cultural anthropologist Erin Dawson to Cedar Canyon, where the iconic terrain of red rock walls and mesas keep Navajo traditionsand maybe criminal evidencewell hidden.

    When Erins search leads her to cross paths with tribal policeman Adam Silverhorn, its hardly love at first sight. But everywhere she turns, Adam is already there.Fighting their feelings for each other, the two are suddenly thrust into a battle far more dangerousa common quest to rout an insidious drug cartel that has spawned the recent rise in gang violence on the reservation. Adams position of authority gives Erin a rare glimpse into Navajo life few outsiders like her ever seeand into a crime ring that no one dares to imagine. As danger mounts, Adam and Erin begin to wonder if they will live to tell how they really feel.

    For most of us we have no idea of what happens on an Indian Reservation. Some of us think of casinos, some think of alcoholism, perhaps gangs. Adam is a tribal policeman, and we should see more of him, terrific character, who has to patrol the Navajo Nation which is quite an undertaking. Erin is searching out a disappearance from 1906. They join forces to try to crack a drug ring. In the midst of all of this there is even a romance. Intrigue, mystery, large amounts of danger and a clash of cultures are just some of the ingredients in this wonderful adventure. I am looking forward to the next book from this highly talented author.

    For as long as I can remember I love reading about the Native American people, their cultures and their love for the land and for the living things that dwell on the earth. Lisa Carter has taken this aspect, combining both contemporary and historical storylines to produce an amazing murder mystery and a bit of romance in her latest novel Beneath a Navajo Moon.

    Cultural anthropologist Erin Dawson has been following the story of Olivia Thornton, from 1906 through her journal that captures a time from her life when she was taken captive by an Navajo Indian known as Silver Eagle. What she discovers is that this started out as a kidnapping but instead love was found. Despite the fact that Olivia's family tried to discourage her from reuniting with Silver Eagle, she made an attempt to find him at all costs when marriages between white women and Indians were frowned upon. Erin knows that there is more to this story that what is in the journal and she is going to do everything she can to unlock the mystery.

    What she doesn't plan on is falling for tribal policeman Adam Silverhorn. He is in the process of investigating the murder of the chief of police in Cedar Canyon on the Navajo Reservation. Armed with a handful of clues he's been learning more about an undercover operation that has been threading its way through the police department and even he has his own secrets to hide. The one thing he hadn't planned on is becoming friends with Erin in the process and with them spending more time together, he has to remind himself where the boundaries of their relationship are, despite her uncanny ability to appeal to his appetite for a great meal!

    I received Beneath a Navajo Moon by Lisa Carter compliments of Abingdon Press for my honest review and did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable one. The opinions contained here are strictly my own. This is such a great novel because of how Lisa has written this from two perspectives, one from Olivia Thornton's as she comes to terms with being kidnapped by a Navajo Indian who wants to learn more about the God she believes in and from Erin's perspective as she tries to figure out what happened to Olivia when she set forth to find the man she had fallen in love with despite the prejudices from both families based on their cultural differences. It is a great example of the power of love and how nothing can stand in the way. For anyone who loves a bit of mystery steep in Indian heritage, you will definitely love this one. I easily give it a 5 out of 5 stars.

    Get a close-up look at the Navajo Nation. While completing an internship, Erin searches for Olivia Thornton, who was captured by Indians, then "rescued" against her will, and tried to return to her Navajo love. As much turmoil besets Erin, whose car breaks down in the middle of nowhere, her house is ransacked, someone wants her dead. And what about tribal policeman Adam Silverhorn? He's not all he appears to be.

    Great read.

    I was captured in the first few paragraphs like the character was captured but the Navajo Warrior. The book kept switching between 1906 and the present day. Sometimes these were awkward but they kept my attention. The characters are so tightly woven that you feel like you are part of the story. I would most definitely recommend this book to anyone. If you like the "Jim Chee" books by Tony Hillerman you will like this one.

    I loved Lisa Carter's Aloha Rose- part of the Quilts of Love series- so I was very excited to pick up Beneath a Navajo Moon. It's also a nice thick, meaty book; and I love holding those physical books in my hands. (I know, call me a crazy book lady!) I wasn't disappointed by the read.

    Erin Dawson is staying on the Navajo reservation serving as an intern at the Cultural Center and exploring the mystery of her ancestor who supposedly lived with the Navajos in the early 1900s when she meets Adam Silverhorn, a reservation police officer. As Erin continues her search for Olivia, her ancestor, she and Adam get caught in the midst of gangs and drug cartels on the reservation. Erin has to learn to submit her feelings for Adam- an unbeliever- to God.

    I loved this one. Erin and Adam were both great characters. Their story had romance and mystery and some suspense. I loved the history connection with Erin's search for Olivia, her ancestor. And there was a great message of God's love and forgiveness and His power to perform miracles. As well, Erin's story was inspirational as she had to learn what it truly meant to be a living sacrifice for God, giving up our will to do His.

    I related to the pressure Erin felt to serve God in the way everyone else thought was right and her confusion about what God really wanted her to do for Him. It's difficult sometimes to discern between well-meaning friends and relatives and God's own call on your life. Erin has to deal with this as she considers where she is going to serve God.

    This was a great one. I continue to be a fan of Lisa Carter. Her characters are developed well and her stories have a great blend of romance, suspense and inspiration to live the way God wants us to live. At the end of Beneath a Navajo Moon is an excerpt from Under a Turquoise Sky, another one I want to look for.

    I give this one 5 stars and a PG for content.
