There are three books in "The McBride Sisters"
1. A Treasure Worth Keeping
2. Hidden Treasures
3. Family Treasures
After reading her first book in this series, "A Treasure Worth Keeping," I couldn't wait to read this one. The first book was absolutely interesting, but I found I had to FORCE myself to finish this one. This is about Evie's sister, Meghan, who is a photographer. Her father talks her into going on an "investigation" to find an old piece of artwork for her father's "client."
This book was totally predictable. I didn't get any big surprises. I had it all figured out way in advance. I was a bit confused when Meghan stated her sister Evie couldn't get her on a boat when she was younger. I thought Evie was the one who had a fear of the water and boats...That seemed like a blooper to me...I couldn't buy the story of the reason Cade's mother left either. That was just a bit weird. The romance was also non-existent. It seemed to me the author was more focused on solving this mystery then in getting these two together, and every once in a while she remembered that they were supposed to be getting together and would make a small scene. I also couldn't buy the whole ADD issue thing - I didn't see Cade being a monster - and the way the author abruptly left out meghan's leaving...she was there taking pictures at the wedding one moment, then gone the next? Suddenly, Cade was trying to hunt her down to profess his undying love for her...
I gave this a three because it was an okay book. Had the author written more romance in it and focused more on issues surrounding the couple, I would have been happier. But at the end of the book, the only emotion I felt was relief that the book was over - I still didn't buy that they loved each other...I'm wondering if this relationship will last?
I'm hoping the third book is better.
