Review 'Treasured Lies' by Kendall Talbot


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/26203159-treasured-lies
From award-winning author Kendall Talbot comes a new romantic adventure to dive into…

The discovery of The Flying Seahorse, a 13th century shipwreck, nearly killed Archer’s two best friends. Now, with their recovery assured and his fiancée back at his side, Archer can finally hunt for the treasure that has haunted him since his father’s death years before.

Rosalina learned things about herself that she didn’t expect: her capacity to love, her capacity to forgive and her capacity to do whatever it takes to protect the people she loves. Shooting Nox with a spear gun saved Archer’s life, and brought them back together — this time forever. Now she’s with her fiancé, in the beautiful Mediterranean, with a real chance of ending the guilt that’s tortured Archer for two decades.

But Nox isn’t dead, and he hasn’t given up. Archer and Rosalina may believe that they are safe, but nothing could be further from the truth. What once was about treasure is now about revenge — and it’s very, very personal.

This book is available at Amazon AU, Amazon UK, Amazon US and Barnes & Noble

My Review:


In April I read the first book in this series, ‘Treasured Secrets’. I really loved that book and the places it took you as a reader. So when the publisher approached me with the question if I wanted to read the second book ‘Treasured Lies’, I accepted as fast as I could.

In ‘Treasured Lies’ we meet Rosalina and Archer right from were ‘Treasured Secrets’ ended. Rosalina and Archer are trying to go on after the fight with Nox, the villain who was after the same treasure. Now they are engaged and finally have been able to find the treasure Archer’s father died for all those years ago. Since Archer’s friend and fellow diver, Jimmy was hurt badly after the fight with Nox, Rosalina is now helping Archer with diving for the treasure. But unfortunately, even with Nox gone, there are still other people who are trying to get their hands on the treasure. And soon Rosalina and her friends are in danger once again.

What I really loved about the first book ‘Treasured Secrets’, was the way that book took place in so many different countries. There was romance, there was adventure.. that book seemed to have it all. ‘Treasured Lies’ goes on right from were the first book ended and immediately I felt like I was back in the story and never left.
The romance between Rosalina and Archer continues. At times it even became hotter than the first book. But there were also a view hard moments between them. Moments were Rosalina had trouble believing Archer motives. Something I completely understood since Archer broke her heart when he kept so many secrets from her in the previous book. But it sure was fun reading about those two.

The treasure hunt is still pretty intense. One villain is down, but now there is another one who also wants to have the treasure Rosalina and Archer found. This villain definitely was responsible for a view terrifying moments. And he really doesn’t play fair.
Although there was less travel in this book I still really enjoyed the story. I just love the two main characters Rosalina and Archer. And the treasure hunting part in this series is just really fun to read about. It’s intense, terrifying and definitely frustrating at times.. but I love reading it.

‘Treasured Lies’ is another awesome book. The writing is easy to read and it definitely makes for a fun and cozy read.

My Rating:
