    Tempting Treasures is a surprisingly good book Having read my fair share of historical romances I was instantly captivated by the characters and sucked into their world It was hard to put down I finished it in two sittings The book flows well; there are no long drawn out flowery descriptive paragraphs to make you lose focus The characters are well developed and likable I found myself relating to just about everyone in the bookI loved the story as it was never merely a romance or just a mystery The plot twists were surprising and enjoyable The way everything played out was also immensely satisfyingTLDR A very good book that I would read it again Highly recommended

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review I love plots that center around treasure hunting They're fun to read and I enjoy watching the main characters piece together the clues as they narrow down their search What I enjoyed about Tempting Treasures was that it was all set in the family house Keeping the treasure hunt narrowed down into that location made for an even intriguing plot and the supernatural elements that Buchholz included added depth and a uniueness that many treasuring hunt plots lack I struggled a bit with connecting with the characters While I wanted to root for and connect with Elena I wasn't able to see through her eyes or fully understand the emotions that drove her actions Overall a fun read with lots of twists and turns that made for a well developed plot line

    This was an exciting story with some really great twists and turns I liked Elena and James Their chemistry was good and they got some nice toe curling scenes between them The emotions ran a roller coaster and pulled you along with the mystery Unfortunately I felt like the mystery lost steam at times and was a bit unsatisfactory in its actualization The characters were a bit inconsistent at times with unsubstantiated emotions I did enjoy the side characters that filled in the story especially Katherine The English and grammatical mistakes were distracting wwwcleanromancereviewscom

    PG13Violence fist fighting shooting violent accidents murderLanguage some infreuent swearsSex descriptive kissing and making out but no other detailsI LOVED this book I thought it was so clever The story rocks and the content is great; the punctuation might drive you up a tree but do not let it deter you from reading it
