""You can't escape high school, Lacey. It follows you around like a piece of toilet paper on your shoe."
Lacey has always been a bit of a nerd. Slightly obsessed with genealogy and pirates, she buys a home built by the descendant of Captain Bertrand. Her research on the man has fascinated her. Though she had a run in with the man's living descendant, Max, that was less than happy at the time, she is undaunted in her fascination. When rumor leads her to think there may be clues to buried treasure at her house, things get interesting. And when Max Bertrand agrees that she might be onto something, they just might be on the adventure of a lifetime.
My Opinion: This was a great mystery and adventure book that really keeps you on the edge of your seat. Though it starts off a little slow, it picks up the pace quickly and keeps you going until the very end. Lacey is a dedicated and slightly obsessed character who really portrays the"nerdy" kid who grew up to do just what they loved to do. Max, though a bit rough around the edges, was a wonderful character that really grows on you. A little lighter on the actual romance side, it's still a sweet love story and the adventure makes the rest of the plot wonderful. Great read.
