A Love to Treasure,#1 Sunriver Dreams by Kimberly Rose Johnson

***** 5 stars

Treasure Hunt by Deceased...

A Love to Treasure is a book with a double-entendre title. Nicole Davis, Kimberly Johnson's female protagonist, has returned to the idyllic resort community of Sunriver, OR for the summer. As she follows a treasure hunt left by her beloved late grandmother, she also gets to know undercover detective Mark Stone.

I loved how Nicole's and Mark's relationship developed,but how Kimberly also had Nicole make time to befriend Susan and her trouble-magnet nephew, Connor. While most people might not find themselves in a situation like Nicole's, it sure was fun imagining trying to take enjoy a resort while trying to face so many uncertainties. 

Having read several of Kimberly Johnson's novels before, this has got to be the best yet. The others were like your favorite flavor of frappuccino. Adding the mystery to the romance in this story was like adding whipped cream and a marashino cherry to the top of said favorite frappuccino--PURE DELIGHT!!

I received an ecopy of this novel from Kimberly Rose Johnson and Mountain Brook Ink in exchange or an honest review.
