Trove (The Katie Walsh Mysteries, #1)


MYSTERY:  It was the digger!?! Five years ago, Dr. Katie Walsh had a one-night tryst with a sexy dark-haired, grey-eyed man. No names had been exchanged, just an agreement to share one amazing night of inhibition. Now face to face with him, years later, all she wanted to do was scratch his beautiful grey eyes out for stealing her promotion. He was a digger! An archaeologist!  And there was no way he deserved the job she’d bled and sweated for.

It was his KitKat - the woman who’d haunted his dreams for the last five years. He knew she’d be livid over the promotion, but he needed her. Not just for her expertise in obscure runes that could lead to the most significant find in archaeological history, but because he’d never forgotten their one night of passion.


"Trove" is a tempting beginning to a promising series and Montgomery is kind enough to let the reader know—  right from the get-go— that they’ll have to be patient. The steamy love story is cleverly threaded through a secondary tale of lies and intrigue and keeps the pages turning effortlessly. Interwoven relationships, a sinister threat, and the anticipation of discovery all contribute to a read worth delving into. A fun game of cat and mouse, Trove delivers its treasure. X marks the spot!
