I’m a fan of Sherwood’s previous Dark Horse stories so I chose this one based on the author and honestly I adored the cover. Lost Treasure is a contemporary story written in past tense so those that were bothered by the present tense of previous Sherwood novels can rest easy. The characters are natural, not too complicated, and the story just flows effortlessly. There is a mild tension and the only conflict is how Kyle and Ryan will eventually get together. The story is a light, smooth tale with good imagery and a breezy writing style that keeps you reading. [contd…]
