Can they catch the murderer to save the hotel and her ex’s reputation or will the case take a turn that will leave them lost forever?
Something to Treasure is the second book in the More than Treasure series by Christy Newton. This book is best read as part of the series and not as a standalone. In this book, we get to know Cammie better than the first book. Cammie seems to be adjusting to all the changes in her life as her father is back in her life as well as having a boyfriend. We get to see what unsettles Cammie.
Simon is an ex-jewel thief turned PI. He is still hot and sexy man. Its apparent that while Simon is intelligent and is a good PI his first job above all else is to keep Cammie from getting hurt everything else comes across as second to that.
The chemistry between Simon and Cammie is intense. The sex scenes were hot and steamy. The sex scenes were not as detailed as some book are and I enjoyed that a lot. What puzzled me was why Cammie and Simon were sleeping in separate bedrooms. Is it a way to slow the relationship down and get to know the other person better? On the other hand, is there another reason?
Just like the prior book, this book was just as well written. The main and secondary characters were interesting and realistic. I read this book in one sitting because I could not put this book down. I found the mystery immensely entertaining. Ms. Newton kept me on my toes with all the twists and turns this story took. I had no idea what was going to pop up next. Overall, this was a magnificent book and I will be picking up the next book in the series shortly.
