Quaint story of treasures and romance
I found reading about Birdie interesting. Her character was well developed and readers got to know quite a bit about her past and personality. This wasn't so with Hugh. I wished we are given a better glimpse of his past, beyond the fact that he is a man with a soft spot for women and had done something in the past that continues to haunt him. Strangely enough though, Hugh was my favorite character. I can't pinpoint exactly why, but it might have to do with the fact that he received the harsher "punishment" at the end of the story. Birdie had been a petty thief for years and I couldn't understand why she was let off so easily. I couldn't even sympathize with her after we are told that she had been used by her con mother when she was a little girl.
I thought that the topic of Civil War gems was a bit too far-fetched. A plantation owner giving gems to a former slave? Incredible! Yet, since this book is completely a fiction work, it deserves allowance.
Overall, while Treasure Me is a quaint story of treasures and romance, it is just not the type of story I'd pick up when I'm looking for something to read. Its prose was good, but I couldn't like it, as much as I had wanted to.
