A Sparkle of Silver (Georgia Coast Romance #1) by Liz Johnson

Ninety years ago, Millie Sullivan's great-grandmother was a guest at oil tycoon Howard Dawkins' palatial estate on the shore of St. Simons Island, Georgia. Now, Millie plays a 1920s-era guest during tours of the same manor. But when her grandmother suggests that there is a lost diary containing the location of a hidden treasure on the estate, along with the true identity of Millie's great-grandfather, Millie sets out to find the truth of her heritage--and the fortune that might be hers. When security guard Ben Thornton discovers her snooping in the estate's private library, he threatens to have her fired. But her story seems almost 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 as two charming characters get caught up in the adventure of uncovering the past and finding their way to an unexpected future.

My Review

I enjoyed this book and the author giving us a glimpse into the mind of a person affected with Alzheimer’s and the main character loving and trying to take care of her grandmother. She also is given a deadline to come up with money she doesn’t have to move her grandmother.
I loved that the other main character is carrying guilt for something his mother did while he was a child, and then we see how these overlaps.
Now while both are working at a wealthy 1920’s estate, only at the present time, we see how the present and past collide, but will these two, with a mission, first fall for each other, and achieve what others have failed at in the past, find the treasure.
I found myself walking in their shoes and loving the setting, and enjoying the read!

I received this book through Revell Publishing and was not required to give a positive review.
