A Glitter of Gold by Liz Johnson

Anne Norris has been through some tough times. To escape the memories of her past, she moves to Savannah, Georgia for a fresh start. She not only starts over in a new place but she starts a new business leading pirate tours. However, the tourist business can be fickle and paying rent requires a steady income. At the same time, her family misses her back in her home town in California so she feels pressure to return home even though she can't face the past. Anne isn't sure what to do so she takes a walk on the beach after a hurricane--and finds evidence of a shipwreck off the coast. She wonders if this could help her business--if it is real. She takes her new found item to a local museum and meets Carter--who has struggles of his own to deal with. Could this be the answer to both of their problems--or will it cause more trouble for Anne?

After reading A Sparkle of Silver last year, I was anxiously awaiting the second book in the Georgia Coast Romance series. A Glitter of Gold by Liz Johnson did not disappoint. I enjoyed the mystery in this book and the romance. Also, there is a dual timeline story through an old diary that makes this book extra enticing to read. The diary story line invites the reader to an adventure from 250 years ago. The modern story shares how two people can face challenges and overcome hurts from their past and make a better future. Both stories in A Glitter of Gold invite the reader to hope for both the characters and their own lives. I especially liked the discussion of shame and grace near the end of the book. A Glitter of Gold does not include a set of discussion questions but it would make a good book for a book club to read. The author does include a sneak peak into the final book in the series at the back of the book--which leaves me anxiously awaiting that release!

I received this book from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own.
