    1. Pearls by Lisa Mills is everything a good book should be. Romance, intrigue, mystery, buried treasure – this is one book I’d like to see made into a movie.

    2. Right from the start Lisa Mills draws you in for an adventurous ride through the dusty streets of Venezuela. Isabel finds herself caught up with two men, one treasure and plenty of action! If you want to experience intrigue and romance in one sittingis is the book for you. Great descriptive scenes excellent read.


    3. Not my favourite genre, but I got drawn in anyway. Kind of a Christian mash-up of Romancing the Stone (without the cannabis) and Indiana Jones (without Harrison Ford). I agree with Jen below that it's a bit "naive" or maybe just a little self-censored, which makes certain things somewhat less believable. But it was a fun read, and I liked the setting.


    4. A 500 year old Spanish journal describes the love between a Spanish sailor and a woman captured as a slave whom he rescues. This book haseverything-- a family's tale, hidden treasure, a naive young woman, a dashing man, a grumpy professor, members of the mob, and GodNo sexViolence mentioned in passing
