Birdie is a thief on a mission to find a family heirloom dating back to the Civil War. She has only a single clue to start from as she searches in Liberty, Ohio. As she digs around, she starts to create a life for herself: a straight, legal life with friends. It’s not something she’s ever had, and she’s not sure how to handle it. Is the treasure she is looking for a priceless heirloom, or the new life she is discovering?

Based on the summary, I expected the treasure hunt to be a big part of the story. It wasn’t, but I wasn’t disappointed. The focus is really on the characters, and the history of Birdie’s family. It was an unexpected treat.

This is a story full of lovable characters. I loved Birdie. She is a feisty woman with sad background. Her desire to have a “real” life is commendable, even if she isn’t sure how to do it. Theodora is awesome. A sassy, gun-packing elderly lady who speaks her mind. You have to love a character like that.

Hugh wasn’t my favourite love interest. He felt a little flat to me, but I can’t deny the sizzle between he and Birdie. This may have been a clean read, but the sexual tension was thick. This was a great romance story that built so slowly it was tortuous. In a good way, of course.

Overall, I highly recommend this book. It had romance, a treasure hunt, and a great moral about being able to start over. It was very heartwarming and humourous. I loved it, and can’t wait for the next book featuring The Second Chance Grill.

  1. Sounds like my kind of book.

  2. Ooh I didn't see your review in July but I completely agree. I love how the book is centered around the characters rather than the treasure hunt.
