Mary Vine’s first novel, “Maya’s Gold” was released on September 24th, 2007 byBlack Lyon Publishing.
All famous mystery author Stanton Black wanted was to leave the flashbulbs of Hollywood behind. Hiding out in the wilds of northeast Oregon seemed like the perfect way to get over the attempt on his life while researching his work. His latest novel would draw on the history of his ancestors and the lore of gold country. Now, all he needed was a suitable tour guide.
Special education teacher Maya Valentine was no tour guide. After the death of her parents, Maya has come home to Salisbury Junction for the summer only to have an ailing friend talk her into escorting Stanton around the area. As a pattern of crime around her and the newfound gold on her property leads to a real-life mystery, her relationship with Stanton turns to thoughts of romance. A romance too impossible to consider.

The book has hit the shelves and the reading public has had nothing but kudos for Mary Vine’s work:
“MAYA’S GOLD… is intriguing, dangerous and romantic all at the same time. The relationship between Maya and Stanton was tumultuous at first and then sweet, which is very enjoyable. Well defined characters and superb dialog combined with a wonderfully descriptive setting made for one shiny nugget of a tale.”
