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 fiancé 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 Review


I loved how fun this book sounded, a little romance, history, and science. Witty characters and a great setting is how a good book is written. I enjoyed bits and pieces of this book, but it was not as good as I expected. I love how smart Millie is and fun Kyle and Millie's encounters are but there was not a lot of depth to the story in my personal opinion. It is a fun read but not something I could really get into. I know a ton of people will love this story though so I will go ahead and recommend it because the story line and romance is fun and "cryptic". 

"I received this book from CFBA for free in exchange for an honest review."
