    I do like a good Nora Roberts book every now and then but this one was just okay for me. Treasures Lost, Treasures Found introduces us to Kate and Ky. They had a little love fest going on back in their day until the day her dad sends her away. These two get an unexpected reunion after he dies because she wants to continue his research.

Things started off rather slow for me which was okay because it was rather slow at work. These two were kind of cute and it was pretty obvious that their flame was going to rekindle. It was adorable when Ky was going to make her pay for leaving him and their island of love years ago.. because we all knew it was going to happen. It didn't take long for these two to figure out that they never really stopped loving one another. I get it, it happens.. but eh. In the end, they were cute and the story was cute - I just wished the pacing was better.

    I liked the story as a whole but this is the 3rd Nora Roberts book I have tried and it really was just meh for me. I don’t think she is the author for me. I liked the characters Kate was a strong-willed woman and Ky was a great “hero” type just nothing really stood out for me or caught my attention. I guess it was just an ok romance story. Nice HEA Now the narration was fantastic really Therese Plummer is a total favorite of mine.

    2020 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.

    Treasures Lost Treasures Found is one of Nora Robert's early stories. Personally, I loved it. Gosh This author is GIFTED! I probably enjoyed it a lot more due to my current summer surroundings, which made this story just perfect for me! I couldn't put it down. Get a whiff of that. It's the fresh air of the salty ocean and sandy beach! Listen. It's the smooth sound of the ocean waves and the voice of seagulls flying around. Feel it.

It's the heat of the hot summer sun feeling warm against your skin. Mmm! Well ain't that a delicious taste? The taste of the seafood that cozy little restaurant is just best at making! Would you look at that? The sight of the ocean life. The sight of it's wonders and dangers, and of treasures that have been lost there for centuries. Now add love into the picture. That takes up all the senses as well! Ky and Kate had a wonderful summer romance, but instead of staying with him she took the choice of going back home and going for her career. Four years later Kate finds notes and sea charts her father left behind, and decides to continue her father's search on a sunken ship that held... TREASURE! Gold. Now for this journey, Kate needs Ky's ocean expertise. He only decides to help her because he basically held a grudge on her for just leaving those four years ago. So he wants to make her pay. He wants her to want him back, for her to feel for him again... and by the time she does he'll be the one turning around to choose a different path. Yeah his plan starts going out the dump when he realizes he's never stopped loving her. This story takes you in on Kate and Ky's journey to find that sunken treasure! And to get a hold of the most wonderful treasure given by life itself... love. ♥

Years later, when her father unexpectedly dies of a heart attack, Kate not only has to discover that she did not know about his illness, but also that her father spent years looking for a sunken ship, the “Liberty” and meticulously recorded data on it. She hires her former love and best diver there is and soon realizes that she is not only fascinated by diving, but also by Dominic and her overwhelming feelings for him. Extremely sensitive and very effective, Nora Roberts has written a romance novel that is exciting, captivating and full of passion at the same time. The author has created action in a clear style that has just the right mix of fantastic description, erotic and dialogue, yet still leaves the reader space for their own imagination and fantasy. Though you can tell, that this novel was written somewhere in the 1980s, there is nothing cheesy about this novel. You can also see, that Nora Roberts still uses a basic plot in all of her novels and that the beauty of the landscape is a big part of each and every one of her books. Only the story and the figures change. I like that very much. Impressively, the author has brought her figures through their actions to the reader. Her protagonist portrayed Nora Roberts as a very petite and incredibly strong woman, who desperately longs for her father´s love and pride, and even more to decide about her own life. It is remarkable to observe how Kate is undergoing development in the course of the plot that clearly shows to the reader that no matter what happens in the end, she will achieve her goal and free herself from the father, who is overpowering even beyond death. An absolutely successful romance novel that has no kitsch in it and is written as sentimentally as only Nora Roberts can write. Ideal for enjoyable reading hours and exciting entertainment. But I have to say too, now, around ten years later after reading it for the second time, that it is none of those novels, that were able to thrill me as much as I was excited about it when I read it for the first time. My rating is that I gave the first time because the novel still deserves it. My personal change in taste and feelings about a book is not changing the novel itself.

    I skimmed through a lot of the detail in this story, but I liked the chemistry between the characters and the overall premise. There were some issues with pacing, and the whole thing about owing this to her father felt overdone without a very compelling reason why she felt the constant need to seek his approval her whole life. I think a little more backstory on both characters and what happened four years ago (specifically how they parted) would've been great. The ending felt extremely abrupt to I skimmed through a lot of the detail in this story, but I liked the chemistry between the characters and the overall premise.

I think a little more backstory on both characters and what happened four years ago (specifically how they parted) would've been great. The ending felt extremely abrupt to me— Kate realizes love requires compromise, they agree to compromise, the end? Even just an epilogue of their relationship a year later and what they did about the Liberty and Kate's museum plans would've brought much more closure. The story was decent when it got going, but the ending was completely unsatisfying. I also wish the secondary characters had a bit more development and were present more than being convenient for plot. It got a little boring when it was just the two main characters having the same insecurities over and over again the whole time. I tend to really enjoy Nora Roberts, but this missed the mark for me.

    When her father dies, Kate Hardesty discovers he was researching a particular sunken treasure. She decides to try and find the English merchant ship in honor of his extensive work. It means reuniting with Ky Silver, the man she fell in love with and left behind four years earlier. This time Kate is determined to keep things professional. This should've checked off all my favorite trope boxes, but it was such a struggle to read. I finally gave up three chapters in. I just didn't care what happened When her father dies, Kate Hardesty discovers he was researching a particular sunken treasure.

This time Kate is determined to keep things professional. This should've checked off all my favorite trope boxes, but it was such a struggle to read. I finally gave up three chapters in. I just didn't care what happened to either main characters, much less their treasure hunt. Slow and boring is a quick take on what I found. Very sad for a Roberts' book. DNF, 2 out of 5 for what I did manage to read.

    This book was an okay read. It was kind of slow and not much of a story line except the main characters and their love life or lack there of. I would have like to hear more about the town and the people in it. All we meet is a brother and sister-in-law. There's a doctor. Not much else. I liked the idea of looking for a long lost ship and finding treasure, but again, most of the book was the two main characters arguing about their relationship.

    Incorrectly categorized I've read many Nora Roberts novels and have come to love her adventure and intrigue novels both as Nora and as JD Robb. But not so much the romance novels. Amazon parlays this as a ,suspense novel but it is all romance. All steam and emotion but not intriguing or suspenseful. Not a criticism of Nora Roberts at all just not my cup of tea. If you are a fan of romance and sex then this is right up your alley.

    I found it annoying The two main characters seemed to go around in circles aGain and again as they tried to figure out their relationship. It just did not make any sense to me. The female protag was whiny and immature. I found myself skimming a lot of the book to get to the HEA (or HFN with these two)....which SPOILER ...............seemed to happen abruptly in the last few pages of the story

    Treasure Found I enjoyed the concept of the plot, but was distracted by a couple of things. Having gone scuba diving, I'm familiar with the terminology, equipment and process. It was hard to play out in my mind Ky putting rings to his lips and kissing Kate's hand with a regulator in his mouth. Yes, he could remove the regulator, but that was left out of the narrative. As a speed reader, I also had to slow down when reading the two short names beginning with the letter K.

    Good Read I'm finding out that the less complicated st o bylines that defined her early writing is as enjoyable in many ways as her m o re layered ones as she matured as a writer. This approach seems to allow m e as the reader to hone in on the characters even more closely and thoroughly. I think I like that!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I only gave it 3 stars because the history of the sunken treasure was fantastic. Best part of the book. If it hadn't existed, I'd give this 1 star because Kate was awful. It made no sense to hurt herself and Ky by just dumping him like that. It wasn't like he did anything to push her away. She's just a miserable person who likes to be miserable, just like her dad. It's coward!y and selfish.

    OMG! Tears, Lots of Them This book is a must for anyone with a romantic bone in their body. If you've ever had a love that ended or even had bad times this book will bring you to tears. Good tears but still tears. I loved the book.

    Good read! Always go back to reading Nora Roberts! She has a way of keeping your interest through the whole book! Amazing how many story lines and characters she has written about through her writing career!

    A little different from the average Roberts novel, this book showed a slightly different dynamic between the main characters and the treasure hunt became symbolic of so much more than would first appear. Definitely a good read.

    I bought a mystery box of Nora Roberts books. The first one I already read but this was new to me. It had shades of the movie Fools Gold, starting Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughy. What’s not to like with shipwrecks and second chance at love?

    Debra

    A Yale literature professor and a certified North Carolina diver. An 18th century shipwreck. There’s history between them and heartache. It’s a good story. I’m still disappointed. It was supposed to be a mystery. There is no mystery as far as I’m concerned. It’s a good romance but not a mystery.

    Yikes. Sex and more graphic sex. It was hard to find a plot between the inane choices made by the characters and the sex scenes. Are people really this stupid and unable to communicate? On the other hand, I enjoyed the diving and salvage aspects of the book.

    This was ok. Kate sounded arrogant and Ky sounded like a male who gets his way. And why would anyone run a restaurant without being the owner. Too much work.
