Reviewed by Christian Sia for Readers' Favorite

Before her death, Claire was on the verge of making one of the greatest discoveries in archaeology, one that could verify the claim about the existence of a place known as Heaven’s Oasis, a discovery that would render biblical facts indisputable. Now, after her death, things change. She becomes an object of ridicule in the archaeological community. And worst of all, many people already know about what she had been working on before her death. Would her entire efforts be in vain?

Only one person is ready to stand up to uphold her name, Kevin Foster, a man who’s been the love of her life. He has to prove that Claire wasn’t making unfounded claims; he has to clear her name. Which is why Kevin decides to take up where his lover left off. Can he complete the expedition and lay bare centuries-old secrets that could prove the existence of God? Heaven's Oasis by Jeff W Horton is a thriller that will delight readers who love intrigue, treasure hunts, and stories laced with symbolism and artifacts.

The story is well told and the reader knows the conflict will become huge when the knowledge of what Claire had been working on becomes public. The introduction of a billionaire arms dealer, Kain Masterson, raises the stakes. Why does he want so desperately to discover the hidden oasis? Who will get to the truth first? It is interesting to watch the players in this deadly game as they race towards the clues and artifacts. The characters are very compelling and well sculpted. The pace is fast and the entire story holds a lot in store for curious readers. Jeff W Horton has created a work of great entertainment in Heaven’s Oasis. The writing is beautiful and the powerful descriptions take readers on a thrill ride through the hidden regions of the Middle East.
