Like the first book in the series, this story is awash with big emotions. I’ve also noticed that the author has a remarkable flair for writing young characters: they’re engaging and age-appropriate, not tiny adults. I really appreciate that our hero and heroine are more mature with a wide variety of life experiences. But these two characters are just so stubborn. Jerrod and Dawn are adorable together but there were several times I wanted to smack their heads together to knock some sense into them. I especially loved the messages in this story about family ties, forgiveness, and starting over. I received a complimentary copy of this book.
Something to Treasure by Virginia McCullough is sweet, sincere and romantic with an engaging cast of characters and a quaint small town. The love story between Jerrod and Dawn is swoonworthy, true, but it’s much more dimensional than that. For one thing, they are slightly older than a ‘typical’ romance novel; both at or near 40. They also both have children from previous marriages – Dawn’s teenage son Gordon and Jerrod’s adorable five-year-old Carrie. And while their stories are different (Dawn’s husband left her for another woman, while Jerrod’s wife died) they both carry the burden of loss and single-parenthood. This means that a romance between them has many more considerations than that of a pair of twenty-somethings. These added layers really give the book depth and authenticity. Bottom Line: Something to Treasure by Virginia McCullough is a compelling story of loss and discovery. And I’m not just talking about the discoveries Jerrod makes in his diving excursions. Rather, I mean the discovery of friendship, belonging, and home … as well as renewal. Layered characters and an emotional plot make this a book you can sink your heart into, just like its predecessor Girl in the Spotlight, and I’m already eager for more books set in Two Moon Bay!

Something to Treasure is the first book I have read by Virginia McCullough. I love this beautiful and well written story. I felt a connection to Dawn right from the start. I understood her feelings and what she had gone through in her life. I admired her strength and "nothing is going to get me down" personality. I was not sure about Jarrod at first but that quickly changed as I got to know him. I thought Something to Treasure is a great book. The story is true to life, heartwarming and inspiring. I enjoyed spending my time with Dawn and Jarrod. I love their chemistry and did not want to tell them goodbye at the end. I am so happy to be introduced to Virginia McCullough's work. This definitely will not be the last one I read. I look forward to reading more from her in the future. I give Something to Treasure 5+ stars. I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100 percent my own honest opinion.
