When Lacey Whitman buys a restored Victorian home, she never dreams discovering an antique diary will lead her back to sea and into the arms of the dive bum she’d rather forget. Her habit of living in the past comes to a screeching halt as diver Max Bertrand and the diary of his ancestor take Lacey on the quest of a lifetime: To discover and raise the privateer ship, Specter, and bring the treasure and legacy of a true hero home again. But will finding it cost her heart?
Who doesn't love a romance with treasure hunting wrapped in it? I enjoyed this well written, entertaining story. Ms. Thorne really does a superb job telling a story. Lacey is a good woman who gets caught up in the history of ancient pirates. She ends up finding secret treasure in her yard which leads her back to the dive bum who got under her skin. At first I didn't want to like Max and truly I didn't like him until towards the end. As you figure Max out a bit more you realize he's lived under the shadow of his ancestors all of his life. They turn out to be a great pair and the chemistry between them is great. I loved the whole pirate, missing treasure story line and I especially loved where the Specter was hidden. Such a good ending to the story too. Left me wondering if there will be a sequel.
