Stephanie Gage's father has been kidnapped - by a dangerous man who wants to make a trade. Her beloved dad for a multimillion-dollar family heirloom that's gone missing. Either Stephanie finds the valuable violin or her father dies. But to trace it down, she must rely on Tate Fuego -- the man who broke her hear years ago. Stephanie knows that Tate's reasons for helping have nothing to do with her. And that the handsome demolitions expert knows more about destroying things than saving lives. But trusting Tate is all that stands between Stephanie and a madman's ultimate revenge.
The Treasure Seekers series is a wonderful twist to the Love Inspired Suspense line. This isn't the first in the series but I dived right in and gobbled it up anyway and LOVED it. It's a great standalone read but now I'm itching to devour Victor and Brooke's story in the first book, Lost Legacy.
So -- what has me so enamoured with this new series? Because it's unique. No police, navy seals or FBI in sight. Not that I'm averse to reading about men in uniform (batting eyelashes furiously) but it was so refreshing to read a suspense based around ordinary people -- well as ordinary as treasure seekers can be!
Also loved the pacing and tension. Mentink revved it up right from the start and kept me breathless the whole delicious read. She kept throwing harrowing twist after harrowing twist until I thought my whole world had tilted on its axis! I was dizzy by the end.
Also loved the way she managed to mesh all the characters together -- secondary ones maintained prominence without overpowering the story. And Stephanie and Tate were the perfect combination of a love lost and doomed forever...not! Between emotional turmoil and suspenseful tension, I was a goner and read Dangerous Melody (brilliant title by the way) in one sitting.
