A Love to Treasure by Kimberly Rose Johnson

A Love to Treasure

Publisher’s Summary

School teacher Nicole Davis is on summer break, but this vacation is unlike any other. Her beloved Grandmother’s final wish has landed Nicole smack in the middle of her favorite destination—Sunriver, Oregon, following Grams’s clues on a mysterious scavenger hunt. Unexpectedly, Nicole finds more than just a fellow sleuth in a handsome police officer, Mark Stone. But Mark must return to his job in Portland at summer’s end, and Nicole must guard her heart.

Mark is hoping for a quiet summer in Sunriver as he contemplates his future in law enforcement, but a string of burglaries draws him from his self-imposed break from detective work and thrusts him into the middle of the investigation. To complicate matters, Nicole is in jeopardy, and he knows his growing feelings for her could cloud his judgment. Will their differing career goals be the end of their summer romance—or just the beginning of forever after?

My Review

Nicole Davis is on summer break from her teaching position and vacationing at her favorite place, Sunriver Oregon. However, Nicole is there because of her Grandmother’s scavenger hunt, and not because she really wants to be. Her grandmother set up the hunt, before her death, hoping to curtail Nicole’s workaholic tendencies.

Mark Stone, a Portland police detective, is in Sunriver, Oregon, working as a street cop. Trying to forget what brought him there, he is anticipating an undisturbed summer in a quiet little town. Instead, he finds himself in the middle of an investigation he wants no part of.

I enjoyed how Kimberly Rose Johnson presents a unique twist to her romantic suspense novel. A young, career-focused woman is forced out of her comfort zone by a scavenger hunt. She has few clues, and it seems as if everyone is in on the secrets except her. A career police detective wants to scale back from his duties in a big city and comes to a seemingly idyllic town. All is not as it seems, and when you throw in a troubled teen and his cousin, two self-proclaimed party lovers and a string of burglaries, you have a recipe for mystery, mayhem and magnetism.

I received a copy of this book from the author. However, I was under no obligation to post a review.

      Oh, thank you so much. I’m honored that you subscribe to my blog!
      I appreciate your kind words so much.
      This was such an interesting story, I loved the twists. Just enough suspense to keep you guessing, but not so much as to be overwhelming (at least for me, anyway!).
      Thanks again so much for stopping by and the kind words.
      Blessings~

          Thanks, I agonize over the reviews. I try to make sure I give a teaser without giving anything away, and also encourage others to check out the book.
          I appreciate authors such as yourself, so much. I love to read and I know writing is not an easy craft. I feel my reviews are a small way of saying “thank you!”
          Blessings~
