Overview

When Caroline flees Chicago following the brutal murder of her husband, the last thing she expects-or wants-is to fall for Matt Carlson, a builder with strong roots in the small town of Mountainview, Tennessee. She needs to focus on raising her six-year-old daughter and protecting both their hearts from ever being shattered again.

Matt is struggling with issues of his own...guilt over the death of his wife and the responsibility of raising a cynical teenaged nephew who is dropped on his doorstep, abandoned by Matt's alcoholic sister. He doesn't have time to fall in love, yet he can't help being drawn to the woman who is ready to defend her home-and her daughter-with nothing more than a feisty attitude and a broom handle.

Can Matt's help and friendship convince Caroline to trust again...and when Caroline's daughter goes missing, will Matt be able to find the girl before it's too late and he loses everything he loves...again?

All I have to say is, the world needs more romances like this one. Mary Manners is a master at the craft of sweet and inspiring romances with a touch of family flair and a sprinkle of humor.

Buried Treasures is a wonderful, light romance. It can be read in one long read. The story line keeps your attention. Mary Manners is a great author in that she develops the characters into believable,everyday people. Her settings are described in such detail that nothing is left out. I can't wait to read more of her books!I recieved this book from The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

Another great read by Mary! This is the story of two people, Caroline and Matt, both carrying their own secrets, one willing to reach out the other not so much. Throw in some lively and fun characters such as Paul, Sue, Andie and Callie. You will fall in love with the characters and their lives. You will find yourself cheering as well as shaking your head in disbelief at some things but this thing is for sure, you won't be able to put it down until you find out what happens in so many of the situations presented. It is a page turner of a different kind. Pick one up and see what you think. I was given this book by Mary Manners with no strings attached, but to post a review, and this is my honest opinion of this story...one of many. Must go find some more!!

Buried Treasures By: Mary Manners I really enjoyed this book. One of those you don't put down till your done. I love the characters. Loved sweet little Callie. Caroline left Chicago after her husband is murdered. She inherites her Aunts home in Tennessee way out in the country. Her only desire is to raise and protect her daughter. Protecting them from ever being hurt again. Then there is Matt the guy next door. Matt has issues he is dealing with over the loss of his wife and helping with a nephew while his sister is getting her life together. Can the two come together and learn to trust one another? This book is great. Another great story by Mary Manners.

I just finished Buried Treasure by Mary Manners. What a great book! I didn’t want to put it down. The storyline drew me in immediately. The spiritual element of trusting God versus fear of circumstances brought some truths home as well. I have been telling all my friends about this incredible book and can’t wait to read more from this amazing author. I received this book for free from BookClubNetwork in exchange for my honest review.

I just got done ready “Buried Treasures” by Mary Manners and found it a very quick read as I did not want to stop reading once I started the book.  It is about a two people who lost their spouses early in life and how they rebuild their lives.  Caroline has a young daughter who depends on her so that makes Caroline makes some hard choices but as it turns out good choices.  Matt is busy raising his 15 year old nephew while his sister is in rehab.  Paul came to Matt angry and bitter but Matt helps him see that he is loveable and that God loves him. I like this book because it has laughter, love and some hard life lessons.  It is very well written and I cannot wait to read some more my Ms. Manners.
