PERILOUS PURSUIT
It’s been five years since Shiloh Evans encountered the murderous gold hunters seeking Blackbeard’s hidden stash. After they killed her policewoman cousin, Shiloh left town to regroup, and earn her own police badge. Because she would see this case solved — someday. She just didn’t expect the killers to attack her new home in Treasure Point, Georgia…on the same day her ex-fiancé arrived in town. Adam Cole has tried to overcome his love for Shiloh. But he won’t just sit by when she’s in danger. Working together, they plan a trap. But springing it requires getting to centuries-buried treasure before the killers get to them.

Barbe Noire ? Une chasse au trésor ? I’M IN.
Arrivé avec presque trois semaines de retard (à tel point que tout le monde, moi, le vendeur, la poste…) le croyait perdu… et pas du tout en état comme neuf.
Mais bon, à ce stade et vu le prix des autres exemplaires d’occasion, je suis juste content de l’avoir à la maison ♥

She tied her shoes, then moved as soundlessly as she was able to the door and pulled it open just a teeny crack. Enough to let her slip out.
No one was there.
You’d think there’d be security. Then she heard voices and opened the door a tad bit wider. Ah. There was a security guard in the hall. And he was flirting with the cute nurse at the desk. If she was’t sneaking out, it would no doubt annoy her that the guard wasn’t more vigilant. As it worked in her favor, though, she decided to take advantage.

Si le début est un peu lent, la suite ne cesse de devenir de plus en plus mouvementée, et en bonus, on a droit à une véritable fin, bien développée. Une lecture vraiment très sympa !
