Review: Millie's Treasure by Kathleen Y'Barbo


About the book:
From bestselling author Kathleen Y'Barbo comes Millie's Treasure, the second book in The Secret Lives of Will Tucker series, a new set of novels involving romance, adventure, and hidden identity.

Memphis 1890―Bookish heiress Millie Jean Cope is as clever as she is beautiful. Unfortunately, though adept at solving puzzles and cryptograms, she doesn't realize her new fiancĂ© isn't who he claims to be, but instead is a charming scoundrel. The infamous Will Tucker is presenting himself as a British gentleman, Sir William Trueck, though in reality he is a crafty criminal looking for a hidden map to a secret treasure.

Pinkerton agent Kyle Russell has been on Tucker's trail for years. At last Kyle believes he has Tucker cornered, but he is uncertain whether the lovely woman on the con man's arm is an unsuspecting victim or willing accomplice. Finding reasons to spend time with Millie is easy. Keeping himself from falling in love with her is another issue entirely.

A fun and entertaining story of how God can shine the light of truth on the most cryptic circumstances.

My thoughts:


Millie's Treasure was a great continuation to The Secret Lives of Will Tucker series. I thoroughly enjoyed the Pinkerton Agent aspect (love these types of stories!) and thought the whole "treasure" mystery was fascinating. The main characters were great and I loved the ending -- what a way to hook me into reading the next book (not that I didn't already plan to, but it makes me want to read it even more!)

All in all, a great historical romance that I enjoyed! I recommend it if you enjoy these types of stories. You don't need to have read Flora's Wish first, as I think it's a great story on its own.
