Book Review

Publisher's Note:

Anne Norris moved to Savannah, Georgia, for a fresh start. Now her pirate-tour business is flagging, and paying the rent requires more than wishful thinking. When she discovers evidence of a shipwreck off the coast of Tybee Island, she knows it could be just the boon she needs to stay afloat. She takes her findings to local museum director Carter Hale for confirmation, but she runs after a disastrous first meeting. Carter has been searching for the location of the wreck detailed in the worn pages of an 18th-century diary, the discovery of which could open the door to his dream job at a prestigious museum. But convincing Anne to help him fill in the missing pieces of the puzzle is no easy task. And working with Carter means that Anne will have to do the one thing she swore she'd never do again: trust a man. Finding a monetary backer and sticking with a search that's turning up nothing will take all their dedication--and every secret they've tried to hide. If they can find the lost…

A Glitter of Gold

by Liz Johnson

Overall Book Review:

Liz Johnson has come out with her second book in the Georgia Coast Romance series.  A Glitter of Gold has all of the classic hallmarks one would look for in a great story – pirates, hidden treasure, secret diaries and romance.  Yes indeed, this story has a little of everything.

The way in which the story is written allows the reader to really feel the emotions that the characters are feeling.  The two main characters Anne Norris and Carter Hale have a lot of family challenges that one really needs to feel to appreciate.  As is often the case, there is a limited amount that can be said about this without spoiling the story, but the journal belonging to Carter’s family really adds to the story in a poignant and meaningful way.

Romantics will find themselves hopeful, frustrated, annoyed, and even a little crushed as they read this story.  Enjoy this opportunity to escape from reality and enter into someone else’s world for a while.  There is intrigue, romance and discovery to be had.
