What I like about Theresa's writing that it is not overly dramatic and there is not a lot of indecision with her characters. The best comparison that I can make is that her writing reminds me of Mary Balogh whose writing I admire because even though her stories are wonderful, I don't get irritated with the story or the characters. This book personifies how life, no matter how you think it will turn out can surprise you.
Benedict Frost never anticipated that life in the Navy would render him blind from a tropical disease, and that he would wind up as a guest of a country Vicar while searching for a lost treasure.
Charlotte has run away from her life in London and wound up back in the same town she grew up in looking for the same treasure.
They meet and discover that they have more in common then they thought. Both want to be loved for who they are and have the means to live independently. There is a mystery to be solved and family problems that must be worked out. Will they find the treasure together or go their separate ways?
I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who loves a good romance with great characters and a mystery with a satisfying ending.
