    1. This is a cracking debut. It was thrilling to travel along on this expedition with Riley Cooper. I loved experiencing her character blossom as this suspenseful story unfolded. I can't wait for her next adventure. Stacy's writing is captivating. I could not put the book down. I'm ready for Expedition Indigo, the movie. And for Riley Cooper, book two. Bravo!


    2. EXPEDITION INDIGO is one heck of a book. It tells a fascinating story of Riley Cooper, archaeologist, and her quest for a cross once belonging to Charlemagne. Riley is a blend of professional and woman rare in modern novels in that she doesn't exhibit super-human strength, knows her mind well and yet worries about girl things such as how she looks and how she's perceived. Her toughness is subtly done, something I found refreshing. The dashing Stefano draws Riley's interest, but when she finds he [...]


    3. I loved this book. I didn't want this book to end, and was so glad it included a preview of Riley's next adventure. I thoroughly enjoyed the underwater adventures of Riley Cooper, a strong woman of many talents--including archeology, scuba diving, and making music. Those were a great combination for someone who joins a dive to recover a ship downed off the coast of Capri (one of my fav places to travel) in the 800s. As an archeologist, Riley knows how to handle the treasures they find; as a dive [...]


    4. Travel, adventure, double crosses, intrigue, thieves, yachts, SCUBA diving, sexy men, a Vatican connection, an engaging protagonist – these are a few of the reasons I love Stacy Allen's Expedition Indigo. This page-turning thriller captured my imagination and took me on a wild high stakes ride.In Allen’s first Riley Cooper book, Riley comes into the position of archeologist for an international salvage team when her best friend and mentor is unable to make the trip. But her expertise and coo [...]


    5. I enjoyed reading this fun, smart action adventure novel and found it difficult to put down. I'm a fan of thrillers that revolve around history/archeology and this novel certainly does. The scenes are well-written and the reader gets a feeling of actually being on where the action is, whether it is on the storm tossed boat, or the murky depths of the Mediterranean. It is refreshing to have a nicely drawn smart, resourceful, but also realistic female protagonist. I look forward to reading more of [...]


    6. It only took me 3 days to read Expedition Indigo. Without giving too much away, the book introduces us to Archeologist Dr. Riley Cooper. She's extremely likeable, despite nerves she'll do anything to get the job done.I loved reading about Charlemagne, the deep sea dives and the feeling of being on an adventurous vacation in the Mediterranean, eating delicious foods. Can't wait for the 2nd Riley Cooper adventure!


    7. Expedition IndigoI just had the great honor of reading a ARC, and what a Thrill ride of a story! I enjoyed the research of the story, and how it all comes together so easy. Looking forward to Riley's next adventure!


    8. This book was a nice escape. If you like action/adventure with a dash of history finished with a strong female lead then you'll enjoy this book. It was easy to relate to Riley (the main character) and you can tell the author did her research for the story. Great read!


    9. Wonderful! This book has a little bit of everything. Adventure, romance, murder. Looking forward to the next installment of Riley Cooper.


    10. I received Expedition Indigo as an ARC and devoured it in less than 48 hours. The adventure tale centers on the mythology of Charlemagne and the Crux Fidelis - the coronation cross sought after by undersea treasure hunters. Archaeologist Riley Cooper is one of the most compelling female protagonists I've read in a long time - smart, ingenious and courageous beyond her years. I loved that the action took place off the coast of Sorrento, Italy because the details are what make this story a pleasur [...]


    11. Expedition Indigo is an action-packed good read. I'm not a fan of historical time-travel type fantasies, and fortunately this is not one. With enough historical and cultural detail to weave a rich story, Stacy Allen creates an exciting, contemporary adventure with characters of good depth. The heroine, Riley Cooper, is a satisfyingly complex, skilled, ethical, professional and loveable character, and the supporting cast are well-portrayed and interesting individuals as well. Allen's remarkable s [...]


    12. For an avid reader, or bookworm, there is nothing greater than finding a new author, especially one that's writing a series that is exciting, knows how to tell a great story, and writes characters that you either want to know or be. In this first novel Stacy Allen introduces us to Dr. Riley Cooper an intelligent, ballsy heroine, who finds adventure on the high seas and in the arms of a steamy Italian lover. Need I say more. From page one the action starts and never lets up. It's the type of book [...]


    13. So interesting, what a read!I really enjoyed this, it is not like a lot of books I read. I found that I could easily follow along even in the parts in other languages. That was great! I often get lost when another language is just kinda thrown in there to add to the story. But, I usually lose some of the story and get caught up on the change in language. Not the case here. SO happy too. I found this to be thrilling with a twist of romance. Stefano is an interesting character and I love the spark [...]


    14. I wondered why my wife couldn’t put down Expedition Indigo. As soon as I read the first pages, I knew why. Allen paints history and undersea adventure with bittersweet romance in a Mediterranean backdrop.Expedition Indigo’s pace keeps the pages turning with archaeologist, Dr. Riley Cooper, as a believable heroine. As the characters go head to head with robust motivation, the stakes loom larger than life and can change our understanding of history. Riley is no superhero. She overcomes vulnera [...]


    15. My goodness, this book starts out with a bang and doesn't let up! Even when I thought I was safe with the characters getting coffee, bam, Allen adds a shocker, and suspense. Allen is a fantastic teacher-writer, and by that I mean, she sneaks in lessons about Italy, landmarks, history, and diving while telling us a crackling, edge-of-your-seat suspense--and equally important, love story. CAN'T WAIT FOR PART II!! What a fantastic read that can be done in one or two sittings (assuming you must take [...]


    16. Received a complimentary copy to read and review. Great book. I couldn't put it down. It's a real page turner. I love the characters that Stacy has created. It has great twists and turns. There's suspense, intrigue, and romance thrown into the mix. It makes for a very enjoyable read. I highly recommend it to those readers who love a romance with suspense. It won't disappoint. It's one of those to be added to your TBR list. I look forward to reading more of Stacy's books.


    17. Expedition Indigo is a great story and a comfortable read. I truly enjoyed it. Each time I picked it up I did not want to put it down without discovering what was happening next. Riley's on again/off again relationship with Stefano and the race to trump the bad guys, not to mention the storm, kept me glued to the story. Congratulations to Ms. Allen on an excellent and thrilling first novel. I can't wait for Riley's next adventure. Sandra Vanderpool


    18. Great debut novel. Fast-paced action, adventure, and intrigue, with a little romance thrown in for fun! Riley Cooper is a superb title character, with traits we can all relate to in some way. Fantastic job, Stacey! Keep them coming!




    19. EXPEDITION INDIGO opens with a compelling prologue about a shipwreck in the Mediterranean in 808 A.D. In fact, I was so drawn into the story of 12-year-old Lazio that, at first, I was a little disappointed when the present-day story began. Soon, though, protagonist Riley Cooper, won me over. Quirky, intelligent, and highly moral, Riley has OCD, a condition rarely seen in adventure heroines and which Allen writes about with sensitivity. Riley's rituals, along with her conflicting desires for safe [...]


    20. Expedition Indigo is the kind of story you do not want to end. The characters were well developed and enjoyable to follow as they moved toward their goals. The author's obvious experience with diving, history, and archeology gave the characters' excusion high credibility. It was interesting to see a strong female lead who was comfortable with herself and confident. This character should provide the author with plenty of fuel for an exciting series. The story contained just enough exposition to h [...]


    21. Having read this novel within a few days and Loving it, I am honored to give Allen a five star review for her debut. Stacy is skilled at creating characters with depth (a strong female lead for one who you will root for and adore), a plot with excitement, adventure (I read books to be transported to the author's worldt only does Stacy have the talent for this, I actually learned a lot too along the way), and having the ability to take a reader along with her through these events (scenery, charac [...]


    22. Stacy Allen's debut novel is a gem. She hit all of my buttons - Italy (and gorgeous Italian men), food, wine, and adventure. Her protagonist, Riley Copper, could easily be a good friend: quirky, seasoned with OCD traits, learned, interesting, strong, courageous in her own way, and motivated by a call to do the right thing at every turn.I thought one of Mrs. Allen's best writing traits was that she is herself a wealth of knowledge, but the information about SCUBA, travel, and archaeology was wove [...]


    23. This debut thriller is the kind I like. The characters are real, believable. There's history and exotic locations. The author knows what she's writing about, clearly, and her heroine Riley Cooper experiences real emotions like anxiety. Nothing cardboard here. Furthermored admittedly this is just me talkingbut I LOVE the cover. Why are there so few really BLUE covers when it is my favorite color and it draws me in every time! Well done, Stacy Allen, and I look forward to more adventures from your [...]


    24. Take Indiana Jones and Dirk Pitt, add a dash of quirks and a teaspoon of reluctance, and enter Riley Cooper. This is a rollicking good, suspense-filled adventure with memorable characters and beautifully choreographed scenes in Italy, onboard ship, and in the water. I really enjoyed getting a glimpse into treasure hunting, scuba diving, and even life in the Vatican! Calling this book extremely well plotted and a true page page-turner is not an exaggeration and I can't wait to see what Riley gets [...]


    25. Take Hedy Lamarr, Dirk Pitt, Nora Charles, Adrian Monk, and Barbara Tsakiris and reform them into one character, and you get Riley Cooper!Academia, underwater adventure, villains, car chases, murder and attempted murder are the ingredients in this well crafted novel populated with friends, foes, romantic interest, and even the Vatican.Kristin Kalbli is the audio performer magnifica who brings each character into sharp focus and excitement into the narrative.This is a book not to be missed!I am g [...]


    26. My kind of treasure hunt! The first Riley Cooper adventure takes the female archaeologist to an underwater treasure hunt off the coast of Italy. The descriptions of deep sea diving made me wish I had the guts to try it myself. It was no surprise to learn that author Stacy Allen has experience in this type of expedition; as I read the book I felt like I was right there on the voyage. I'm very much looking forward to the next book in the series.


    27. What a fun book this was to read. From Dr. Riley Cooper, who is OCD and not super outgoing to the dog-loving villian, the characters all just come alive. I fell in love, dived, worried, and rejoiced as I read this book. It will pull you in and run you through the whole gamut of emotions before you even know what hit you.


    28. Blends mystery and history together to create a suspenseful ride. The first scene, opening on the ancient ship and the shipwreck, thoroughly drew me in. I loved the details on Italy and on scuba diving, and the romantic angle also kept my interest. Riley is a great character, and I look forward to her next adventure.
