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 she runs after a disastrous first meeting.

Carter has been searching for the location of the wreck detailed in the worn pages of an 18th-century diary, 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 that Anne will have to do the one thing she swore she'd never do again: trust a man.

Finding a monetary backer and sticking with a search that's turning up nothing will take all their dedication--and every secret they've tried to hide. If they can find the lost ship, they may discover a treasure worth more than all the pirate gold in the world--love.   
 
My Rating & Thoughts:    🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟    (4 stars)   

While I never got that invested in the treasure hunt side of the story I found myself engrossed in the characters and had to know where the story would take them and how it would end.
 
Anne is trying to rebuild her life after a terrible situation and is carrying such a heavy burden; I really felt for her and wanted her to learn to let others in. Carter has a dream and vision, but is struggling to reach it. These two meet through the discovery of an artifact and begin the journey of discovering where it came from. This journey takes them on a path that they weren’t expecting and teaches them so much about themselves. I enjoyed experiencing these characters and seeing them learn to trust.
 
I especially enjoyed the journal entries from an old diary and found myself missing them once we got through the whole diary. The ending left me feeling completely satisfied. I enjoyed my time spent with these characters and look forward to seeing what Ms. Johnson writes next.
