The Greek island of Rhodes: luxurious and hot, beloved haunt of the Sun God, steeped in the mysteries of the past. In the late 1930s during the gathering storm-clouds of war, it is a dangerous place to fall in love. When pretty, passionate Eve Burnett meets the darkly intriguing Julio Falcone, she is torn. As a man, Julio is powerfully attractive. As a policeman, he is bound to be a Fascist. Her brother, David, who is missing, is connected to the Greek Partisans who wish to liberate Rhodes from their Italian overlords.
Now, as David appears at their parents' house soon after Julio makes Eve's acquaintance, Eve is compelled to hide her brother and a mysterious gold statuette. The Fascists are looking for him and this secret treasure. Soon, Eve realizes that she may be forced to choose between the man she loves and the ultimate safety of her family.
A Secret Treasure is a sweet love story amidst war. Eve and Julio find each other while trying to find her brother. Eve then hides her brother so that he doesn't go to jail. I will say that I didn't like Eve's parents. Everytime they ordered Eve around I wanted to yell at them. Totally me, they walked all over her until the end I felt. I really enjoyed this book. The ending was fast paced and intense, and the villain was a true mean and nasty villain!
