An incurable traveler, Mary Schultz has trekked Chile’s Atacama Desert and Easter Island to learn about the visual astronomy of ancient peoples. Together with her husband, she has explored the Mayan ruins of Mexico and Central America, lived and sailed aboard a 41 ft. ketch, and camped from Alaska to the Panama Canal. Mary Schultz’ personal essays have been anthologized: When A Life Mate Dies: Stories of Love, Loss and Healing (Healing with Words Series) by Susan Heinlein; her short fiction has appeared in Yokoi, the Bozeman, Montana occasional arts magazine, and the Mendocino Review to name a few. If you are familiar with Apple Computer, City of Hope, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, publications focused on software solutions for architecture, engineering and construction, and Total Gym, over decades you have likely read Mary’s award-winning advertising & marketing writing.

This is a wonderfully constructed story, which pulled me in from the very first page. The author's voice is compelling and I had complete confidence in her ability to guide me through this young US/Mexican man's life. I really liked the characters she brought to life on the page, as well as the detailed descriptions of a fictional Dorado Bay, on the Pacific coast of Mexico. Schultz also cleverly held back some important backstory, only slowly revealing it, to keep her readers guessing. An excellent read, which I highly recommend.

El Dorado Bay was a real 'draw you in' story.
This story keeps you wondering what the interesting and colorful characters are going to do next. The descriptive style of the writing kept me involved. I could relate to choices the characters made because they were young, and how we all have to remember to follow our hearts to truly seek happiness. I recommend this humorous and thought provoking story of those who struggle with making healthy choices while taking responsibility for their lack of judgement.
An entertaining read!

What a sweet book! You will be immersed in the vibrant colors, the lovely
people, yummy food and lively culture of Mexico from start to finish. There are quite a few wonderful surprises, lots of romance, twists and turns,
forgiveness, new beginnings and happy endings. But you will not want the book itself to end! I enjoyed every page.
