    I skipped the first story in this book as I’ve already read it when I read the full trilogy. The second story really steals the show for me! I was completely sucked in and felt like I was diving for treasure with them. It was such an interesting storyline and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The love story was a bit predictable but hey, which Nora Roberts love story isn’t a tad predictable?! I loved it nonetheless, such a fun and easy read.

    Treasures contains two stories - Secret Star, the third and final installment in the Stars of Mithra trilogy, and Treasures Lost, Treasures Found, a Harlequin originally published in 1986. I found Secret Star to be a somewhat disappointing conclusion to the trilogy. I couldn't connect with heroine Grace. While she did have a difficult family life, her main problems as an adult stemmed from the fact that she was too beautiful, perfect and rich.

While she did have a difficult family life, her main problems as an adult stemmed from the fact that she was too beautiful, perfect and rich. Sorry, but if I'm to be empathetic, I need to be able to relate on some level. I could sympathize with some of her troubles, but most of the time I wanted to tell her to get over herself. 3 stars. The middle book of the trilogy, Captive Star, with its snappy dialogue, was definitely the pick of the bunch for me. Treasures Lost, Treasures Found was a quick read about love lost and recaptured. Kate shared a summer of love with Ky 4 years ago on Ocracoke Island. Kate left Ky to fulfill her father's ambitions for her, but following the her father's death and the subsequent discovery of his secret research, she is back on Ocracoke Island. Treasures Lost, Treasures Found was an enjoyable read about lovers reunited on a search for shipwrecked treasure. Ky made a great hero and there was enough action to keep things moving. As with most of NR's work, it has aged extremely well. 4 stars.

    2020 Treasures Lost, Treasures Found - Ky and Kate were cute together. Although, Ky annoyed me just a little bit. He had that caveman attitude of needing to protect his woman at all costs. Which, like, I get and all, but he didn't like when she tried to protect him. And sometimes men need as much protection as women do. Love is all about protecting the ones you love, so I was slightly agitated about him and his attitude. The pacing was a little slow for me, too.

Nora Roberts usually has such a great build up with her romances, but this time, for me, it just seemed to slow. I mean, we definitely knew that they were going to fall for each other (again) from the start, but it didn't really seem to happen until 3/4 of the way through the story. And I never really got why she felt like she had to do all she could to make her father like her. Or why she worshipped/followed him everywhere. Like, you are a grown adult woman. You do not need to bend over backwards to make your father approve of you. He should just approve of you because you are doing what you want to do. That you are happy with your life. I mean, she didn't even cry at his funeral. That is quite telling, if you ask me.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Secret Star - 2/5 - Tied with the first story for my least favorite of the trilogy. Grace isn't TSTL at least, but she's almost worse. She's cool, calm, collected and not afraid to use her body and her looks to get what she wants - but she has a vulnerable side of course. This is my least favorite character type that Nora Roberts writes. I like a strong, confident heroine, but I don't like it when they're manipulative, calculating and willing to use sex as a means to accomplish something. And Gr Secret Star - 2/5 - Tied with the first story for my least favorite of the trilogy. Grace isn't TSTL at least, but she's almost worse. She's cool, calm, collected and not afraid to use her body and her looks to get what she wants - but she has a vulnerable side of course. This is my least favorite character type that Nora Roberts writes. I like a strong, confident heroine, but I don't like it when they're manipulative, calculating and willing to use sex as a means to accomplish something. And Grace comes a little too close to this for my tastes. She has her good parts and what not, but I just couldn't identify with her nor really sympathize with her. Buchanan, the hero isn't bad, but I can't understand him. Why do heroes fall in love with heroines they don't respect? Sure the respect comes eventually - but he finds himself falling in love with a woman that he barely knows and who he's been thinking the worst of all this time. The suspense in this book is definitely the best part. It wraps up nicely (even though the whole premise of mailing priceless diamonds was a bit ridiculous) and there's plenty of suspense here. I just didn't like the characters or the romance that much. Treasures Lost, Treasures Found - 3/5 - You can really see the difference between Nora's 1980's stuff and her 1990's stuff. It gets so much better. You see it in the fact that her characters have a bit more depth and she actually switches POV. In this story, Kate is trying to finish her father's dream (he's dead) and goes back to North Carolina, to Ky Silver, to search for the sunken ship that her father was looking for. She and Ky have a history. They'd been in love and when Ky asked Kate to stay, she walked away...unwilling to give up her father's approval. So thing start off very bitter between the two of them. They do soften towards each other, as they must, but Kate continually got on my nerves with her irrational stubbornness and yes, on occasion her stupidity. It frustrated me that she thought everyone was trying to control her and keep her from doing what she needed to do, when they seriously did know better than her and were looking out for her. (view spoiler)[ I don't think asking someone to take some bed rest after they'd been stung by a sting ray and out cold for 24 hours is too much. But no, stupid Kate insists she can dive again the day after. (hide spoiler)] I also got irritated that the heroine blames everything on Ky, who isn't such a bad hero, a bit alpha, but he controls with good reason...and when he doesn't it is often because he's emotionally overwrought. I don't equate wanting to take care of someone and protect them as trying to bend them to your will. So that part of the book didn't really make a whole lot of sense to me. Still, it was a lot better in quality than the early books I've been reading by Nora. I actually enjoyed it. Though the ending could have been much better as well.

    This is actually two books in one. Secret star was a bit far fetched for me and Treasures Lost, Treasures Found was your stereotypical paperback romance. I read these because I read Angels Falls by Roberts and liked it... it had a more envolved story line so I thought I was going to be reading something similar. Not the case but still desecent mindless reading if you need a book for laying out this summer.

    I enjoy Nora Roberts. Her books are among some of my favourites. However I wasn't as enamoured with this book as I have been with others. I found it difficult to relate to the two main characters. As well I didn't think their issues were resolved, at least not to my satisfaction. Anyway, on to my next book.

    A typical Nora Roberts plot of romanticism with misunderstanding in the middle which leads to happy ending in the end. A light read for an enlightened endeavour to de stress a hectic day.

    I really like Treasures Lost, Treasures Found. It was a nice little story about two frustrating people who just won't admit that they love one another and should be together. I enjoyed the Secret Star as well, except the ending. This book was the last in a trilogy that evolved around three couples and one evil guy. I was disappointed with how easy it was for the bad guy to be taken down. There should have been more conflict. Other than that, I enjoyed the book.

    I only read the first story in the book, which was the continuation of Stars of Mithra trilogy. It was okay. I guess I expected more about who was behind the killings and that all just seemed to tie up too quickly and nicely for me. Oh well...

    Read Treasures Lost, Treasures Found some time ago under another collection. Secret Star was good, she didn't hit a couple of the genre tropes that I expected. I started with the last in the series but it still caught my interest.

    I really like the stars trilogy, first two books happen simotaneously and the third locks in with the first two. Usually when they package a trilogy into two books and throw a random fourth book to complete the package I find that single book lacking but I truly enjoyed the bonus book this time.

    Haven't even begun this one yet - it's two novels in one: "Secret Star" and "Treasures Lost, Treasures Found". Been awhile since I've read a Nora Roberts. Her books are usually good reads, entertaining.

    Secret Star was a bit disappointing, the way it didn't really have a very good climatic ending. But I did like treasures lost, treasures found. Although, it was very similar to the reef, without the murder and revenge. But still a good read.

    Nora Roberts. What else do I need to say. You can not go wrong with her books. Loved Ky and Kate romance. Would like to read a Marsh and Linda story. Roberts is a great story teller and easy to read author. Liked this story.

    Good book for reading during travel. Fun romance, not so absorbing that one misses the gate change announcement, nor so emotional that one must put it down and dig for a tissue while seatmates inquire tactlessly why one is crying. Still, compelling enough to avoid resorting to Sky Mall.
