"Lost Gold of the Shenandoah by Billie Irene Johnson is an adventure filled 'whodunit' that takes the quirky residents of modern day small town Apple Grove, Virginia down a historical civil war treasure hunt. Starting in war torn 1864 with a stolen gold shipment, the story quickly goes back and forth to present day, revolving around a heritage B&B recently bought by Lauren Reynolds. Lauren gets more than she bargained for when the whole town develops gold fever from a find on her property. Johnson's humorous writing style makes this an entertaining page-turner filled with secret passageways, jealous fury, romantic gallantry and murder. Mix that in with the memorable characters: a power hungry mayor; a conniving Southern Belle; a handsome town sheriff and a whole town filled with Civil War reenactors, and you get mayhem. Not only is she a great story teller, she also has a unique insight into men and women that had me laughing out loud several times. I now know it is the women that really run the South. Lost Gold of the Shenandoah definitely gets my vote for a great read." - TopBookReviewers
