A dangerous search for an ancient ship leads to a heart’s treasure beyond price.
Ever since her days as an undergrad student at Harvard, where she roomed with Bryn Bailey (Pathways)–nautical archaeologist Dr. Christina Alvarez has been obsessed with finding her ancestor’s sunken treasure ship and striking underwater gold. Determined to achieve her goal, Christina has traveled to the Caribbean island of Robert’s Foe, where treasure hunter Mitch Crawford–the one man who can assist her–refuses to help. But Christina’s fight to win Mitch over may lead them both to a Treasure more valuable than either one of them ever dreamed.
This is my first encounter with any works of fiction by Lisa Tawn Bergren. I enjoyed her book, Treasure. It is filled with romance, danger, mystery, and intrigue. Although I found the hero to be unlikeable at first, even though he undergoes a rapid character change after a while, I tolerated him for the sake of the story. I found the heroine to be somewhat dependent on the hero to “rescue” her, although there are several times when she must rely on her own wits to escape her dangerous pursuers. I found this book to fit nicely into the genre in which it falls, even if the characters were a bit too “formula” bound for my tastes. It was definitely a good afternoon diversion from daily life.
