I have been eager for Liz Johnson to start writing a new series as I loved her Prince Edward Island Dreams series! "A Sparkle of Silver" is the first book in her new Georgia Coast Romance series and it starts the series off with mystery, romance, revisiting the past and family relationships. Millie plays the role of a 1920's era guest at the Chateau; however she has a motive for playing this role besides the fact of it being a job for her. Millie's Grandma Joy requires much care and she has shared about a journal and her mother being a guest at the Chateau along with a hidden treasure. Millie is determined to uncover the secrets and treasure to help answer the questions as to who really is a part of her lineage, but also that her family receives what is rightfully theirs. However, Millie's searching is discovered by Ben whom is a security guard on the grounds, which he does for his own reasons. As these two team up to search for the treasure and discover what really happened during this summer from so many decades ago, there is much they learn about themselves, their pasts and their future.
This is a great story! It is a nice mix of mystery and romance and I absolutely loved the characters. I love the whole dressing up and playing the roles to set the scene at this place as a part of recreating history. Liz's writing is so descriptive, it was easy to picture the various scenes and become a part of the story! I am looking forward to book #2!
