Saturday Stories: Stone of Heaven

We’ve all heard about twins being polar opposites. This is the case with identical twins, Abigail and Victoria Carswell. They may look alike, but that’s as far as any personality trait goes. Abby is an adventurous risk-taker who views the world as her oyster, especially when she snags the treasure of whatever illusive pearl she tracking at the moment. Tori craves seclusion and is perfectly content to design jewelry in her personal railcar as she travels the country side in complete safety and comfort.

And yet, they are absolute twins, sensing trouble and heartache no matter how many miles apart their lives take them.

Let’s not forget Reid Hunter, a treasure hunter and Abby Carswell’s keenest competitor. They’ve vied for the same treasures over the years, each taking in stride when the other happens to luck out on the adventure of every lifetime.

Reid senses something is wrong when Abby doesn’t throw her hat into the latest treasure hunt — and the most dangerous so far — the search for the blue jade, the Stone of Heaven. He knows there’s trouble when the reclusive Tori Carswell shows up at the airstrip looking for her sister.

What could have happened to Abby to bring Tori a world away from her comfort zone?

As Tori and Reid tangle together in their mistrust of each other, time is running out to rescue Abby who has been captured by the Mayan priests who seek to uncover the power of their sacred god. Tori and Reid learning to trust one another is a parallel adventure to the one that races to the tomb in time to save the world.

L.A. Sartor writes a story that draws you in and holds tight for the whole ride. I recommend Stone of Heaven to anyone, especially if its a grand adventure you’re looking for!!

Stone of Heaven

The Recluse …
Tori Carswell treasures her solitude and simple life. Her identical twin, Abby Carswell, is the polar opposite, seeking increasingly risky adventures. Now Abby has put herself in mortal danger, captive of an ancient Mayan cult. Her only hope? Woefully under-prepared Tori.

And the Treasure Hunter …
Reid Hunter, good-natured and currently broke, aims to beat his ex-partner Abby to the fabled blue jade known as the Stone of Heaven. But when reclusive, aero-phobic Tori overcomes her fear of flying and tracks her sister to a well guarded tomb deep in the Yucatan rainforest, he realizes Abby is in serious trouble.

Can Opposites Accomplish the Impossible?
Abby no longer trusts Reid. Can Tori risk doing so now, and join forces with him to save her sister? Or will Reid put riches before life and love?

    Thanks Audra:

    I’ve been wanting to read this book for months. I’ve been to the location and I like books set in exotic settings. I thought it would be a few more months before its release. I already have it on my Kindle and will start to read it tonight.

    I’ll be very interested to see if there was any childhood event that happened to one and not the other that makes these twins so different from each other.


  4. Hi Vince,
    I loved the Yucatan peninsula when we went there on vacation 8 or 9 years ago. We visited a Mayan village and I gained an appreciation for a culture that has not changed over the years.

    You’ll like Stone of Heaven. I say a thing about twins and incidents…


  5. Hi Vince,
    Hmmm, it will be interesting to see about your take on the twins.

    I’m so pleased you have it already, what a gift to me to have you read it.
