Set in Florida, this entertaining novella is part of the ‘States of Love’ series that offers stories of romance that span every corner of the United States. If all of them contain the same interesting and informative flavor of the state they are set in as ‘Treasure Trail’, this will be a great series to read. It will almost be like taking a tour encompassing the entire USA, only much cheaper than actually traveling there! Having been to St. Augustine many years ago, it was nice to “revisit” and ...more
It was nice -- both the MCs were pretty likable. I also enjoyed the treasure hunt. BUT I thought it missed the opportunity of telling some of the background part of the character. I mean, it said that Derrick survived an emotionally abusive relationship; however I thought it was pretty glossed over. Oh, and I missed Chris' POV in this; at least maybe I could see the two cats in his house ^^

I'm pretty sure this one's on me because everyone else seemed to have loved it. I struggled to connect with the MCs and the setting of this story. Chris and Derick were likable guys so I'm not sure what the problem was. As for the setting, I kept having to remind myself that it was in the U.S. (Florida). I kept thinking it was the U.K.

I have read this author one other time and enjoyed that story so I'm going to call this a fluke on my part.

A Joyfully Jay review.

4.5 stars

Derick owns a popular pub in downtown St. Augustine, Florida. It’s pirate themed and it’s part of a pub crawl for tourists. Derick has a bit of a crush on Christopher, the leader of one of the pub crawls. He dresses like a pirate, and they have some scripted banter back and forth. Derick is shy, though, and his employees keep encouraging him to go and talk to Christopher. One night, after the crawls are over, Christopher and some of his roommates come to Derick’s

I waffled between giving this little short 2.5 or 3 stars. I decided on 3 because I really, really liked the premise but I thought the execution needed work. There were a few editing issues, mixed up names and sentences that didn't make sense which took me out of the story. While I liked the MCs a lot I was never able to grasp any connection to them or their story and I need that in the romances I read.

What can make this story even more fun. Reading it while vacation in St. Augustine and staying at the Pirate Haus Inn. I loved the fun story of the "treasure" hunt that helps bring these two men together. I also had fun visiting all the same places from the hunt. This is a quick read but lots of fun. The author did their homework for this story.

Sweet and entertaining!
This was a sweet story of 2 shy men both with a crush on the other. Finally, one gets the liquid courage to start things. Very enjoyable.

Who wants to take a trip to Saint Augustine? This girl.

Pirates, Treasure maps, and beer, oh my! Chris is a sexy pirate re-enacter for a Pub Crawl in St. Augustine. Derick owns a pub on the crawl. For years the two have wanted each other. The only time the two spoke was from a script for the groups Chris was taking around.

One day Chris gets the drunken nerve to approach Derick. The two start talking after work, and Derick decides to make a Treasure map for Chris, finding clues to brake a cure

I was given an ARC to read in exchange for an honest review.

Treasure Trail is a delightful story of Derick, a bar owner in St. Augustine and Chris, who plays a pirate and leads a pub crawl. Derick is shy and suffers from social anxiety. He prefers to stay hidden in his office rather than out mingling with the customers. Chris is a very outgoing, personable man who loves his role as a pirate. He’s good at what he does and the tour groups always love him. When Chris decides to finally see if

Derick is a bartender and bar owner in St Augustine. He loves the Pirate Pub Tours that come through, especially a certain Pirate Captain.
Chris has liked Derick for a long time and been waiting for him to make a move, so he finally takes it upon himself to talk to Derick, this gets Derrick opening up, and Derick sends Chris on a little treasure hunt.

I liked both Chris and Derick; I thought the treasure hunt was such a sweet idea and Chris meeting Derick at night for Bike rides o home was
