Review:Secrets of the Lost Summer by Carla Neggers

Well I had to stay up late to finish the book. It was a enjoyable read.
Oliva Frost lived in Boston for the last 5 years. But last fall bought a early nineteen hundred home in her hometown Knights Bridge to slowly turn into a business.  Oliva planned to open a place for weddings, parties and someday mini conference stays.
Oliva is a graphic designers and she had a lunchen date with her biggest client.
Her friend Maggie she had been helping her get her work turned around was comming to Boston and they planned to get together but Maggie cancelled and then her business lunchen was cancelled by text.  Oliva decided to go to lunch by herself and at the restraunt she saw her friend with her client at lunch.  Oliva could not believe her so called friend Maggie was stealing her client.
Oliva was hurt and decided that she would go back now to her hometown and start fixing up her home.  She was going to freelance for her firm till she was ready to open her business.
The house stood by itself except a old beaten up home with junk and weeds in the yard.  It was close to a Dam that used to be four towns but the goverment years ago decided to move them so they could have plenty of water for Boston.
The owner had bought the home two years ago and it stood empty getting worse.
So she wrote to owner in California and asked them to clean up yard or let her do it.
Dylan McCaffrey got her letter and he had never heard of the place or new nothing about it. Found out his dad had bought the house right before he died.  Dylan dad was a treasure hunter.  Dylan was a professional hockey player till he got injured and cut.  Then he helped his best friend Noah, since kindergarden start his business and they just went public so now he was rich.  He decided to go to Knights Bridge and see what his dad was doing their. So Dylan went to clean up yard and decide what to do with the house.
So Dylan and Oliva  got caught up in figuring out the mystery of what treasure his father was looking for.
Oliva is close to her family but they have a bunch of issues to work out. Dylan gets closer to his deceased father as he figures the mystery out and keeps coming back to Oliva.
It kept my interest in the book till the end. I will read more books by Carla in the future. I was given this ebook to read from Netgalley in exchange for honest review.
