Kody Cameron intended to help with her family's estate in Florida before going back to New York to work in live dinner theater. Unfortunately, there had been rumors of mob treasure buried on the property her family owns, and a team of thieves is determined to get it. Luckily for her, one of them is actually undercover FBI agent Nick Connolly. He does his best to minimize the violence and urges Kody to look through historical documents to find the treasure. It isn't just because he's a good agent, it's because he had met her before and wants the chance to ask her out.

Kody is a very likable heroine, and she works to undermine the thieves whenever possible. Even when terrified for her safety, she also is concerned for the safety of the manor staff, her parents, and the kidnapping victim that Nick is looking for. It's a believable kind of bravery because she doesn't have superhuman strength, just adrenaline, love and loyalty pushing her forward. Nick is an upstanding agent and does his best to balance the undercover work with saving others. Both are well-rounded characters, and the way they're drawn to each other feels natural over the course of the story. We don't necessarily see much of the supporting cast, so they're more thinly described. The suspense and plotting is fast paced and carries you through to the end, which is a very satisfying conclusion. It's a nice romantic thriller to curl up and read.
