First off, I must say that I really do wish that all sources for which you can submit a review to would allow half ratings, because I strongly believe that Treasure Me deserves a Solid 4.5 rating!! I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of reading this book!!
Christine Nolfi has expertly written this book with the most descriptive characters and settings of most books that I have read. I have this very clear picture of who Birdie Kaminsky is and of what Liberty, Ohio is like! There are some stories that you read and just go along with the lines, and there are other stories that you read and get lost in the words, which leaves you with a feeling that you are within the confines of the story yourself! The latter is exactly what happened for me and I thoroughly enjoyed the Liberty experience! Nolfi has skillfully and proficiently intertwined the "old" Liberty in with the "new" Liberty, leaving the reader feeling like he or she has a vast knowledge of the history, present, and even the future of the town!
Treasure Me is the perfect combination of humor, mystery, and intriguing relationships that gives the book a perfect balance!
This book was such a pleasure to read! I already have book two in the Liberty series, Second Chance Grille, the prequel to Treasure Me, on my Kindle so I certainly will be continuing on with the antics of the Liberty crew and I can't wait to see what is in store for them!
Stellar writing Christine Nolfi, stellar writing!!

This is the first book of a new series about Liberty, Ohio.
This one starts out in the present day but goes back in time to the Civil War and how blacks were taken out of the south via the Underground Railroad system to start new life's in the north.
This is about Birdie and her family over the centuries of time. She is a thief-it's all she knows how to do thanks to her mother. Her father is in jail for a car theft and she travels to Liberty, OH to find the treasure.
She reads a book about being a lady, the etiquette and manners. We find her in a restaurant where she's just gotten a job waitressing and will be living in the apartment upstairs. She will have to share it with Hugh, a newspaper reporter.
They tend to get along ok at times not so well. She finds the clues she was looking for in her search for the rubies. She talks to many in town and finds more. Problem is Hugh's friend at the paper is onto a story about Birde's parents and how they stole the money in the investment firm.
This is also the story of many others paths that she crosses and they all have a bearing in the story. Took me quite some time to actually get into this story and I'm so glad I stuck it out as it is an adventure, some travel, and some romance.
Especially like the ending and how everything fits into place.
There is an excerpt from the next book in the series, at the end.
I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.

This book was an absolute pleasure to read. It is a charming tale of hidden treasure and new beginnings. The story was engaging and very entertaining. It was hard for me to put down. I was always wanting to read “just one more chapter.”Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
I was enchanted by the small town of Liberty, Ohio and its wonderfully quirky residents. I fell in love with the town and, most of all, The Second Chance Grill. It was great how Ms. Nolfi weaved the history of the town into the story. The sexual tension between Birdie and Hugh added an interesting dimension to the story as a whole.
I absolutely loved all of the characters. From the skillet-wielding Finney to the gun-toting Theodora, the quirky cast of characters was great fun to read about. Of course the main character, Birdie Kaminsky, captured my heart from the outset. I loved witnessing her transformation as the story progressed. In the end, she finds a treasure far more precious than what she set out to find.
I would absolutely recommend this book. Christine Nolfi is an immensely talented storyteller and this book is just one example of her talent.
