Elizabeth's Review

My rating: 3 of 5 stars - Average Read

Before I go into my review - I need to note that Treasuring Amber is an interconnected stand alone and I have not read the books that come before in the series. I think some of the factors that influenced the rating I gave the book would have been different had I read the whole series - or even just more of it.

Treasuring Amber is an interesting premise. Amber is a young woman (very early 20's) who has recently moved to town and is creating a life for herself. She's a little brash and might need lessons on how clothes can send an image, but most everyone seems to like her. An impromptu kiss with a friend's brother leads to sparks and a case of insta-lust and the potential for more - maybe.... until a jerk neighbor discovers a past betrayal and everything blows up.

I struggled in connecting to Amber and Harper (her love interest), but I think a part of that goes back to not having read more of the series. I have the feeling that a lot of their character development happened in prior books. I did find myself rooting for Amber - she seems like a girl who has done the best with the hand life dealt and I have to admit to getting angry on her behalf.
Harper was a little harder for me to relate too and understand his "feelings" for Amber and believe that they were genuine, so that made the ending of the book a little harder for me to accept. I would have like to have seem him work a little harder.

Overall, this was a well written book and entertaining. I would caution readers who have not spent time with this series as I think the backstories would help connect some of the dots a little bit.
