A Glitter of Gold

About the Book

Anne Norris moved to Savannah, Georgia, for a fresh start. Now her pirate-tour business is flagging and paying the rent requires more than wishful thinking. When she discovers evidence of a shipwreck off the coast of Tybee Island, she knows it could be just the boon she needs to stay afloat. She takes her findings to local museum director Carter Hale for confirmation, but things do not go as planned.

Carter is fascinated with the wreck, the discovery of which could open the door to his dream job at a prestigious museum. But convincing Anne to help him fill in the missing pieces of the puzzle is no easy task. And working with Carter means Anne will have to do the one thing she swore she’d never do again: trust a man.

My Thoughts

Liz Johnson writes such beautiful stories. They always have such interesting and unique storylines. This one follows suit. I mean who doesn’t like a book about a sunken ship, treasure floating to shore, plus some mild romance? Mystery and history! It’s a perfect combination. The story clips along nicely, it kept my interest well. I felt like the characters were likable and relatable. Themes of forgiveness, restoration, love, grace, and family ties were evident throughout the story. I love the way Ms. Johnson writes these themes into her stories. They are parts of real life and she handles them beautifully. I also liked that Anne wasn’t a spoiled rich kid. She was struggling financially. This is something most people can relate to at some point in their life. I love that it was part of this story. This book is great for a day at the beach, an afternoon in your favorite chair, or a cold winter night wrapped in a blanket. You’ll soak up every part of the story and learn a little bit about pirate history too! What’s not to love? I recommend this book and gave it 4 stars. I received a copy from Revell. I was in no way required to write a positive review. All thoughts are my own.
