Liz Johnson: A Glitter of Gold

By Kelly Bridgewater

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 ship, they may discover a treasure worth more than all the pirate gold in the world--love.

My Thoughts:

A Glitter of Gold by Liz Johnson delivers exactly what she promised. There is emotional and inner conflict running crazy through the main two characters. Anne Norris, the heroine, is trying to run from her past and Carter is trying to make a name for himself that has no ties from his family legacy. The synopsis hinted at a treasure hunt, and it is definitely there, but for someone who likes a lot more action to the story, I felt that the story dragged a lot. It centered around the two characters, and the treasure hunt was the item to draw them together, but it wasn't the main focus of the story. The romance took center stage and was the main focus of the story. For a contemporary romance, Johnson did deliver just what fans of contemporary romance want. This is a wonderful book for fans of Melissa Tagg, Lindsey Harrel, or Kara Issac, but for me, personally, it felt dry and needed more action and more focus on the hunt for Catherine, the ship.

I received a complimentary copy of A Glitter of Gold by Liz Johnson from Revell Publishing, but the opinions stated are all my own.

My Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
