Treasures Lost Treasures Found is one of Nora Robert's early stories. Personally, I loved it. Gosh This author is GIFTED! I probably enjoyed it a lot more due to my current summer surroundings, which made this story just perfect for me! I couldn't put it down.

Get a whiff of that. It's the fresh air of the salty ocean and sandy beach! Listen. It's the smooth sound of the ocean waves and the voice of seagulls flying around. Feel it. It's the heat of the hot summer sun feeling warm against your ski

Years later, when her father unexpectedly dies of a heart attack, Kate not only has to discover that she did not know about his illness, but also that her father spent years looking for a sunken ship, the “Liberty” and meticulously recorded data on it. She hires her former love and best diver there is and soon realiz

This book was an okay read. It was kind of slow and not much of a story line except the main characters and their love life or lack there of. I would have like to hear more about the town and the people in it. All we meet is a brother and sister-in-law. There's a doctor. Not much else. I liked the idea of looking for a long lost ship and finding treasure, but again, most of the book was the two main characters arguing about their relationship.
I'm a big fan of Nora Roberts, but this book was jus

Incorrectly categorized

I've read many Nora Roberts novels and have come to love her adventure and intrigue novels both as Nora and as JD Robb. But not so much the romance novels. Amazon parlays this as a ,suspense novel but it is all romance. All steam and emotion but not intriguing or suspenseful. Not a criticism of Nora Roberts at all just not my cup of tea. If you are a fan of romance and sex then this is right up your alley.

Good Read

I'm finding out that the less complicated st o bylines that defined her early writing is as enjoyable in many ways as her m o re layered ones as she matured as a writer. This approach seems to allow m e as the reader to hone in on the characters even more closely and thoroughly. I think I like that!

OMG! Tears, Lots of Them

This book is a must for anyone with a romantic bone in their body. If you've ever had a love that ended or even had bad times this book will bring you to tears. Good tears but still tears. I loved the book.
Shannon Murdoch-morris
A little different from the average Roberts novel, this book showed a slightly different dynamic between the main characters and the treasure hunt became symbolic of so much more than would first appear. Definitely a good read.

I bought a mystery box of Nora Roberts books. The first one I already read but this was new to me. It had shades of the movie Fools Gold, starting Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughy. What’s not to like with shipwrecks and second chance at love?
Geraldine Gueldner
Good read!

Always go back to reading Nora Roberts! She has a way of keeping your interest through the whole book! Amazing how many story lines and characters she has written about through her writing career!
Bernadette Shelby
Good fast’s nice to incorporate a few of her novels from time to time even if mostly a fluffy romance.

meh. This one did not do it for me. I did not like the heroine. Wanted to slap her.

Great read

It's not only interesting but it is intriguing to follow. The story keeps you involved for many reasons always hoping for the next discovery. Nora Roberts did it again.

Oh why did I waste my time?
Nothing special- a cheesy beach read
Tani Garberg
This was ok. Kate sounded arrogant and Ky sounded like a male who gets his way. And why would anyone run a restaurant without being the owner. Too much work.

So close to being a 5 star read but ultimately I felt let down by the ending. It was rushed and I desired so much more.

Another great novel by one of my favorite authors, Nora Roberts. And they all lived happily ever after love story.

"This one is for Romance Lovers ..."

This is the story of Kate Hardesty. Kate's father has recently passed away and while she was getting his affairs in order she ran across his research on a sunken ship. In his honor she sets out to finish his work and to bring the treasure home. She enlists the help of Ky Silver with whom she had a brief affair 4 years ago.

This book is the equivalent to easy listening ... - easy reading with some humor and clever dialogs, but oh so predictable. It is fairly ' S

It's amazing that this book didn't feel dated at all since it was written in 1986. Brilliance Audio did a wonderful job of making it come to life.
Author: Nora Roberts
First published: 1986
Length: 243 pages
Setting: Contemporary, Ocracoke.
Sex: That 80s hand wave that pretends to be explicit but pulls the curtain at the final moment Fairly frequent.
Hero: Diver.
Heroine: Lecturer.

Lots of internal monologue as our two MCs strain to find common ground to resurrect their second chance romance. But there never seemed to be an understandable reason for it failing the first time, no reason for the two of them to be celibate in the intervening 4 years

Really a 2.5

Roberts is a strong writer now, but it is easy to see from this work where she has grown from in the last 25 plus years. There is too much reflection by the characters for a book which is baely more than 200 pages. There is simply page after page of Kate thinking about Ky and her father, or Ky thinking about Kate and how his feeling are changing or being rediscovered. Meanwhile, the only action in the novel involves the search for the sunken ship and Kate and Ky’ individual run-ins w
