I love Catherine Palmer's writing style! I love that in her series she has a wonderful sense of continuity, but not repetitiveness (both in plot and characters) -there is a difference; one is appreciated, the other is annoying. Haha ;)

I absolutely love the setting! A huge -and inherited- mansion full of masterpieces and mystery tucked away in the thick jungle undergrowth of a tiny village in Zanzibar, East Africa - with a clear, refreshingly safe and inviting lagoon right out back. (That just s
I thought the first book in this series A Kiss of Adventure was a fun quick read. This book is different. More of a mystery, less adventure. The main character is Jessica (Tillie's sister from the first book). She and her son make a big change in there life by moving from London to Africa when Jessica is left a house there by a trusted art professor. Nothing goes as planned, and to top it off she runs into Rick McTaggert who was (and actually is still) her husband. He left her 10 years earlier a ...more
I do like Catherine Palmer's work in general. This particular book again is part of her adventure line and I am not an adventure fan. Good story line as far as relationships and I like her characters. I can relate to some of the dilemmas they faced. But diving for buried treasure just not a draw for me. I did like it better than book 1 in the series though.

#2 in the Treasures of the Heart series.

A newly inherited house, a murdered professor, a sunken wreck, a lot of people harbouring bitterness...& a rekindled love - all set against the wonderful backdrop of Zanzibar Island, Tanzania.

I love how Africa comes alive in this series!

A fun yet poignant story... The Treasure of Zanzibar told a touching tale of love, betrayal, danger, and forgiveness. I loved the shark-free, amazing beach in the backyard of Jessie and her son's African home, and the intrigue of ancient sunken ships and lost treasure. The miraculous appearance of a long-lost love was bittersweet, yet lovely all the same. I wasn't too delighted over the murder parts... just gives you the chills if you think of it too deeply. And there was something I bit lacking ...more
Christian woman and son go to Zanzibar, reconnect with estranged husband/father. Solve a small mystery. Not earth shattering, but a decent read.
Even if there were parts that seemed a little rushed, overall this is a very well-written interesting book of trusting God for whatever His plans are for your life. It makes you think about how sometimes he does do miraculous things in people's lives. I know, I know, life doesn't always turn out that sweet after abandoned marriages and single women being content for ten years without a date. But, it can happen and how nice to read it in the form of suspenseful love and family type story! Thanks, ...more
A slightly surreal start to this book - Jess decides to move to a remote island after being left a mansion.. and doesn't let her ten-year-old son know until they're a week from departure.

However, an exciting story follows with some romance, a 'whodunit' murder to solve, and the thrill of diving to discover a wrecked ship. The Christian content isn't too overdone, and although the characters are a bit flat, and the plot perhaps a bit unlikely, I found it hard to put down once I was half way thro

A Whisper of Danger, a tale of reconciliation, is my favorite Palmer title. Romance, intrigue, faith, hero on a motorcycle, and an irrepressible kid--this book has it all. Palmer is heartwarming always, but this book got under my skin in a good way. I read it years ago and still remember the reconciliation scene.
I read this years ago, so I don't remember it, except that I thought it was exciting at the time. But it's probably one of those shallow in the romance department, so I'm giving it two or three stars.
I have really enjoyed this series, but this is probably my least favorite of the three books. The characters seemed less believeable, and less likable. The end seemed wrapped up a little too nicely.
Overall it was a pretty entertaining book. There were some parts that seemed forced or redundant. Liked the concept of an estranged husband winning back his wife because he's changed.

I loved the fact that this book has some Kiswahili in it.
It is quite the story on overcoming anger and bitterness and forgiving oneself and others.

Loved this book. Easy reading. Has reminders of how to see God in all things. Author keeps events interesting and descriptive.
Mary Baker
This was an interesting book because of the setting--a mysterious house in Zanzibar and the plot--the murder of a wealthy man.
I remember that I really like this book, but it's been so long since I read it... I really need to read it again.
the books in this series are a lot of fun to read. I really enjoyed them
I liked this one better than the first one.
