A Touch of Gold – Joyce & Jim Lavene


4/5 Lost Treasure Chests

On The Back:

Long before he became curator of the Duck Historical Museum, Max Caudle discovered its greatest treasure-a wooden chest full of gold. But a thief with his eye on the gold fires a cannonball into the museum, destroying the building-and killing Max.

Injured in the explosion, Dae finds her abilities have been amplified, overwhelming her with intense visions every time she touches an object. Now if ex-FBI agent-and burgeoning beau-Kevin Brickman can help Dae decipher her visions, she just might be able to stop the modern-day buccaneer from killing again.

My Thoughts:

It’s been quite awhile since I’ve read the first book in the series, but I remembered bits and pieces of it. This book picked up and carried on at a fast pace on it’s own.

The characters were great, like I said above I didn’t remember much from the first book, so I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book because as a general rule I don’t care for books about psychic people, but this book was really good. THe author did a great job of having a MC with a psychic power without having that overshadow the mystery, though it did play a large part in the mystery.

The setting was really good, though I feel it’s overused in the cozy mystery genre, Ellery Adams,a nd now Eva Gates also write mysteries set in this area.

Overall a good book, the author made the killer slightly obvious and it was slow to get into but it was still a good book. I already have the next one!
