Where Treasure Lies

by | Mar 5, 2023 | Uncategorized | 1 comment

I’m excited to be a part of release week for Where Treasure Lies by Amanda Tru.

She posed this thought-provoking question: Have you ever experienced any ridiculous, hilarious, or just plain bad travel luck?

Have I ever!!!  I am an avid traveler. Through the years I’ve learned to anticipate and even enjoy the unexpected foibles of travel. One summer I went on a road trip with my daughter through France—and a bit of Andorra and Italy. We stayed in AirBnbs the whole time with one exception. We went to Andorra, a lovely country nestled in the Pyrenees. Chalets, curvy roads, wildflowers.  Postcard vistas. Tired and in a strange country, we looked forward to our apartment and a rest before we toured the village. The address was correct, but there was no apartment there waiting for us. Nothing.

Panic? Not quite since that would do no good. We found a hostel but decided something better was waiting for us. Voila! A quaint European hotel had a corner room with views on two sides overlooking the town out to the mountains. Who knew that we needed a good night’s sleep in a big room with a full-sized bathroom? God knew.

Here’s a little bit about this exciting book.

Two stories…thirty years apart. Will solving the mystery of the past provide the key to the present?

Scott Connelly arrives in the Suamalie Islands determined to acquire property for his father and leave as soon as possible. But he doesn’t count on the animosity of the residents, the fascinating local legend of a sunken Spanish treasure ship, or the highly unavailable waitress who comes to his rescue. The fabled treasure promises to buy his freedom, but even seeking it may be a dangerous risk.

News of her father’s death precedes Tavia Connelly’s arrival in the Suamalie Islands. Despite the hatred of the island residents, Tavia’s determined to settle her father’s affairs and return immediately to assume her role as head of the family company. But her father’s wishes require her to find out what happened long ago, given only Scott’s mumbled clues, crazy rumors, and a centuries-old fable.

Tavia should be safe after all those years, but her presence attracts a lot of resentment, and the ghosts of Scott’s enemies may still lie in wait for someone to come searching for a treasure that may have never existed.

But what if it did?

Take a trip to the Suamalie Islands where palm trees sway, the sand and sea pulse with life, and the people will steal your heart.
