Review: A Sparkle of Silver by Liz Johnson


About the book:
Uncovering the past can lead to an unexpected future . . . 

Millie Sullivan plays a 1920s-era guest during tours of a palatial estate on the shore of St. Simons Island, Georgia, where her great-grandmother was a real guest ninety years ago. When Millie learns of a lost diary that may contain the location of a hidden treasure on the estate and reveal the identity of her great-grandfather, she sets out to find the truth of her heritage--and the fortune she desperately needs. But it won't be easy.

When security guard Ben Thornton discovers her snooping in the estate's private library, he threatens to have her fired. Still, her story seems too ludicrous to be fiction, and her offer to split the treasure is too tempting to pass up.

Get ready for a romantic escapade through dark halls and dusty corners that will have you holding your breath and sighing with delight.

My thoughts:

A Sparkle of Silver was a great read. I enjoyed the letters in the story and how it blended contemporary and historical fiction beautifully.

The book had some mystery and a very nice romance story. I liked the characters immediately and was hoping for a happy ending, even when it looked like things might go a different way.

All in all, A Sparkle of Silver was really good and I recommend it to fans of this genre. It is a slower read, but I was never bored and thoroughly enjoyed it. Can't wait for the next one!
