Honestly, I hated this book and I don't use that term lightly. I started this book and managed to read three other books before I came back to it. I know everyone else loved it and thought it was great, but I thought it lacked depth. It was a very superficial book. I didn't feel like I ever got to know the characters all that well and it was soooooo predictable! Poor family, strong man, must steal to rescue family, falls in love with girl with her own issues, she hurts him, blah blah blah. I could have handled the plot if it wasn't such an awful book. I have read other books by this author and couldn't believe how much I didn't like this book. So, I apologize to everyone who loves this book but I can't help how I feel. I just wanted potential readers to be aware that this book isn't exactly 5 star material. I know I was disappointed and I don't want you to be as well.
This book kept me interested the whole way through. Truely one of the best romance novels I have read in a long time.
First in the series about the Lockhart's trying to retreive a lost treasure that will save their home. Good!!!
