This was my first Catherine Palmer Catherine Palmer novel. I'll be sure to read more. The Heart's Treasure wasn't over-sappy with romance and it wasn't "preachy". It had mystery and adventure and was a fairly quick read. The characters could have had a little more depth but overall, a good book to wile away an evening.

Enjoyable read concerning conserving the historical evidence of the old West in New Mexico. Original plotline about a couple who had moved on from their youthful failed marriage. Each reinvents their lives with enjoyable careers, Kitt as an archaeologist and Michael as a world traveling journalist. They reunite at a dig and decide to work together to solve a mystery concerning an unusual corpse. All the while, they also find they have to heal their wounds from their past.

Christian romantic fiction about a young couple torn apart by the tragic loss of their baby daughter and brought back together after 15 years of growing up, with a mysterious twist involving their professions. An easy and satisfying read, though I feel like the story could have been told in fewer pages and with a little less angst.

It was cute

definitely not my favorite book ever, it was ok. some parts better than others. I don't know why, but I never found myself that connected w/ the characters as I usually do. the dialogue/ story between the two main characters, Kitt and Michael seemed forced and unrealistic.
would not seek out another book by this author. not impressed. her writing style seems very "elementary" to me.

This was a really good story - kept my attention right from the beginning. Nothing at all offensive, but no strong gospel message either (not that every story has to have that, just pointing it out!). It has a bit of mystery involved and some history thrown in about the West in the mid 1800's.

I liked that this was set in modern times as I had gotten used to reading Palmer's Historical Romances. As a young woman who married at 19, I wanted them to work it out something awful and was pleased with how the story went. Also love Hod, such a great character. :)

Your basic romance novel with just enough intrigue to keep me reading. I sort of figured out the end before I got to it. It was an okay read, I definitely will give the book to one of my friends to read.

I was a little hesitant about starting this book because it was mostly a love story. However I did enjoy the fictional history and archeology bits of the story. Overall a good read.

Authentic characters with real emotions, struggling with past hurts, finding the kind of true love that takes your breath away.

I love, love, love Catherine Palmer romances.
