About the Author

Dear reader,

Thanks so much for deciding to join Simon and Grace on their treasure hunting journey! I hope you enjoy the wild ride! This story is so special to me for many reasons. First of all, I’m thrilled to be joining so many other talented Beyond Fairytales authors. Second, I’m excited about returning to my “happy place” in this book, Scotland. There’s just something about that particular setting that makes me so happy. With the beautiful scenery, the ancient customs and culture, and the haunting past, it’s the perfect place to set a search for a family heirloom. All through the writing and editing of the book, too, I listened to amazing Celtic music that guided me through the scenes, the emotions and the suspense of the book. Finally, I’m excited also about sharing the journeys Grace and Simon go through during the book. These characters were so much fun to get to know and so easy to write. Not only are they people I’d like to have as friends, they’re also perfect for each other. I hope you’ll let me know what you think of Chasing Gold when you’re finished at ! I’ve got to get back to work on my next book!

3.5 Stars...So what do you get when you mix a woman who is trying to prove she can get the job done with a man who is trying to prove himself to his family by going out in the field? You get some tension, some harsh words, and then some sparks as Simon and Grace learn to rely and lean on each other while chasing down Grace’s family treasure that was lost centuries ago. This was a quick, fun read that followed Grace and Simon as they searched for the treasure. Since the book was short, there wasn't time for a lot of character development, but I feel the author did a real nice job with Grace – it was easy to relate to her feelings of having to prove herself and the pressure she put on herself to get the job done. And her reaction to Simon when he arrived showed all that pent up frustration she held inside from not feeling that her uncle was giving her his full support at finding the treasure. It was also fun watching her show her softer side as she and Simon began to give in to the attraction for one another. Simon was a bit of a nerd – and boy does that picture on the cover look exactly like I pictured him! He’s tired of feeling like the glorified secretary and has had a hard time getting his brothers to take him seriously. I do wish there was just a little more on the relationship between Simon and his brothers. There seemed to be so much more going on between them then just the brothers not thinking Simon could handle field work, that a bit more backstory would have helped understand some of that dynamic. The suspense and little bits of action that were thrown in kept the story moving, and it was fun to see Grace and Simon start to see each other as more than what their initial impression of each other was. I especially loved watching Simon go a bit alpha on Grace – it’s always fun when that “nerdy” guy turns out to have a bit of a naughty side! A fun read – and I would definitely give other stories from this author and/or in this series a try! I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.
