Treasure Hunting for the City of Gold by Carolyn Arnold @Carolyn_Arnold

Carolyn Arnold can sure spin a tale and I am very eager to hunt for the City of Gold.

Amazon  /  Goodreads


I love treasure hunting and am very excited to travel to South America to search for the Lost City of Gold with Carolyn Arnold.

Matthew was the reason Cal was the Indiana Jones type, a modern day treasure hunter. An adrenaline junkie and thrill seeker. Danger is part of his game.

Matthew, and his friends, Cal and Robyn…could danger have followed them home?

Sophie has ‘feelings’ and they are not good ones.

Have you heard of the Lost City of Gold? Carolyn Arnold made me curious enough, I had to Google Patiti, Bolivia and El Dorado. Check it out for yourself.

Due to circumstances beyond their control, their journey is thrown together, with less research and planning than the other adventures they had been on.

Danger looms from more than the jungle.

She came from his past and all their lives are on the line.

A cross between Indiana Jones and the Lost World, without the dinosaurs, add a kidnapping, and a lot of action and adventure in the jungle and I find it impossible to go wrong with City of Gold by Carolyn Arnold. I loved the book and I am super excited to have my hands on the next adventure in the series, The Secret of the Last Pharoah.

Finding the Inca’s lost City of Gold would be the discovery of a lifetime. But failing could mean her death…

Archaeologist Matthew Connor and his friends Cal and Robyn are finally home after a dangerous retrieval expedition in Cambodia. While they succeeded in obtaining the priceless Pandu artifact they sought, it almost cost them their lives. Still, Matthew is ready for the next adventure. Yet when new intel surfaces indicating the possible location of the legendary City of Gold, Matthew is hesitant to embark on the quest.

Not only is the evidence questionable but it means looking for the lost city of Paititi far away from where other explorers have concentrated their efforts. As appealing as making the discovery would be, it’s just too risky. But when Cal’s girlfriend, Sophie, is abducted by Matthew’s old nemesis who is dead-set on acquiring the Pandu statue, Matthew may be forced into action. Saving Sophie’s life means either breaking into the Royal Ontario Museum to steal the relic or offering up something no one in his or her right mind can refuse—the City of Gold.

Now Matthew and his two closest friends have to find a city and a treasure that have been lost for centuries. And they only have seven days to do it. As they race against the clock, they quickly discover that the streets they seek aren’t actually paved with gold, but with blood.

  1. Searching for the Lost City of Gold? interesting! I don’t think I have read that topic other than elementary school history book about the conquistadors. I have only seen it in the Disney movie actually! I’ve been to the Amazon a few times so I think I would enjoy a book set in a south american rain forest [BTW.. This is dragonfly @ Our Familiarium from my new [old] identify] Sorry it took me so long to come and visit!

    • Oooo you’ve been to the rain forest. I am jealous. I guess that means you didn’t see the Lost City??? lol I figured you were busy, so no problem. Between the holidays and the flu, I’ve just got back into the swing of things.

    • I love it too. Reading is an education, whether it’s fiction or non. Rogue waves…that sounds interesting and…maybe…a little dangerous for the characters. lol

    • I feel the same way. I have Book II and I am eager for my next adventure in The Secret of the Last Pharaoh. Glad to hear from you and I hope all is well. 🙂
