A Treasure Concealed

A Treasure Concealed, is a book based in Montana at a gold mining site.  Emily's Father has moved them from one mining camp to another, hoping to strike it rich.  Meanwhile, Emily is busy taking care of her sick Mother, and all of the other chores that fall upon her shoulders.  While she watches time pass away, she is dreaming of a home and future of her own.  When a stranger shows up in town, it changes everything.

I have read so many books over the years that I don't throw out the word love, unless I truly mean it, and even though I can't say that I loved this book, I did really like it!  For me to have loved this book, I would have liked a bit more tension or chemistry in Emily and Caeden's relationship.  Their relationship was sweet, but there wasn't enough for me to fall with them.

Overall, the book was well written, and I thought the story was very original.  Having good character descriptions is huge, and she nailed it for me in this book.  I felt like I could picture where they lived and what they looked like, which makes this story truly come to life.  I think Tracie is an amazing author and I am excited to read the next in this series.

* I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House Publisher, in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
