If anyone can save him, she's the one

Jerrod Walters hopes relocating to the coastal town of Two Moon Bay can be the fresh start he and his young daughter need. But the single dad is caught off guard when a beautiful PR professional offers to promote his diving excursions to legendary shipwreck sites. There's so much he admires about Dawn Larson, starting with the woman's upbeat, can-do personality. Dawn's boundless capacity for joy might be the only thing capable of bringing him back to life after his tragic loss...

I would like to thank Prism Book Tours for giving me this copy of the book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.

Something to Treasure was the first book I’ve read by Virginia McCullough.

Jarrod was such a surprise to me.  I hadn’t expected him to be such a scholar.  He did extensive research on shipwrecks and considered himself to be an amateur archaeologist.  It was fascinating to read about the shipwrecks in the Great Lakes and the passion that Jarrod had for shipping and history was presented in such an interesting way.

The author did such a great job in her descriptions of the area that I could picture what it all looked like.  And she made the small town of Two Moons come alive in a great way.

The story was touching as Jerrod dealt with guilt and grief over the death of his wife and daughter and the way he handled it, and as Dawn dealt with her own grief over what appeared to be the end of her dreams.  Yet it wasn’t a mournful story.

There was one small problem with the timeline, as I first read about events on the Fourth of July, and then the next chapter placed them in late June.  It was slightly distracting, but didn’t really take away from the story.

This is the second book in the series, and while it was clear that some of the characters were from the first book, I didn’t feel like the story was incomplete because I had not read that book.  I will probably go back at some time and read it, though.  🙂

Here is the information about the first book:

The daughter they never knew

When Miles Jenkins sees the graceful young figure skater on TV, he can't believe how much she resembles Lark McGee, the girl he dated briefly in college. Could this aspiring star be the child Lark gave up for adoption eighteen years ago? He has to find out.

Locating Lark ignites conflicting emotions in Miles—including regrets for what might have been and romantic feelings that take the two single parents by surprise. As they prepare to meet their daughter, this deeper connection between the two just might be the chance at love they never got.

Her award-winning romance and women’s fiction titles include The Jacks of Her Heart, Amber Light, Greta’s Grace, The Chapels on the Hill, and Island Healing.

Born and raised in Chicago, Virginia has been lucky enough to develop her writing career in many locations, including the coast of Maine, the mountains of North Carolina, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and currently, Northeast Wisconsin.

The mother of two grown children, you’ll find Virginia with her nose a book, walking on trails or her neighborhood street, or she may be packing her bag to take off for her next adventure. And she’s always working on another story about hope, healing, and second chances.
