    A touching Historical Romance

    Adam's Treasure (an Historical Romance that will keep you turning the pages) - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat


    'Oh, my! What have I done? To ride away with a man who had put his hands under her skirt, tried to steal her prize, and broke into her bedroom didn't make much sense. However, staying there with that other man, Dawson, coming after her had not been a possibility. But had she been kidnapped, or had she gone willingly? The lines were blurred. To be sure, she had not fought Mr. Skelding after he dumped her out the window. Where could she go but with him? Her mother had taught her, better the devil you know, than to meet the devil you don't. She had made a split-second decision to go with the agent.'

    Put yourself in Marilla Logan's position. She had left New Jersey after the deaths of her family, finds herself working in Smythe Tavern, deep in the south, shortly after the end of the Civil War and there laying on the floor is a packet that just might be her ticket out of this nasty job and town. Little does she know but this "little ticket out" becomes a "big ticket to trouble." Apparently a group that calls itself the Knights of the Golden Circle are in the process of organizing another up rise within the south. And the man with his hand up her skirt, trying himself to retrieve the packet, is none other than Pinkerton Agent Adam Skelding. His mission - find the hidden monies and treasures before it can be used to finance this uprise. His problem, other than Marilla - the letters contained in the packet are in code.

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading Adam's Treasure. I never skip to the back of a book when reading and since the resources were listed at the back, I had no idea as to how much research and actually facts went into the writing of Adam's Treasure. I know why the book was so believable. If you enjoy Historical Romances, you will love this book.

    Sal at Two Lips Reviews Writes:

    Diane Wylie paints a vivid picture of Post Civil War America following the assassination of President Lincoln. Adam's Treasure reflects the extensive research Ms. Wylie did before beginning this novel. For those interested, she was kind enough to give a list of resources in the back of the book.

    Marilla is one motivated and determined woman. I admired the way Ms. Wylie presented this spirited lady who doesn't mind expressing her deepest feelings. Struggling with a humiliating and destructive past, Adam is a perfect foil for this outgoing woman, as he keeps his feelings to himself. I felt his distress in fighting his demons, but I had difficulty feeling the deep emotional connection between Adam and Marilla that Ms. Wylie usually establishes with her characters. I found Nickolas, the young and handsome wilderness tracker, a profoundly interesting character, and I hope Ms. Wylie can be persuaded to write a book about this budding hero. In the meantime, Adam's Treasure is a book sure to please the enthusiastic historical reader.
