Adelle Bradbury doesn’t like adventure—in books or real life. As a quiet librarian who hides behind reading glasses, she doesn’t expect to be swept into a dangerous mission to recover one of the world’s most famous lost treasures. But that’s exactly what happens when a mysterious history buff enlists her help to recover a treasure map—A map he insists is concealed in one of the library’s old books, its contents revealing the secret location of King Solomon’s missing wealth. Suddenly, mild-mannered Adelle is thrust into a world of treasure hunters, secret societies, and thieving profiteers. In a mad dash to protect the treasure, she finds a courage she never expected and something more—the possibility of true love.

“Who ever said being a librarian was safe?”

This fun story with its typical bookish librarian at the forefront of dangerous intrigue will satisfy that craving for a few moments of sweet escape. And with a hero reminiscent of Indiana Jones, what more could a true lover of romance ask for? Oh, that’s right, there must be some spiteful villains, a mystery to solve and, of course, a treasure to find. It’s all in these few pages. My only complaint is that I wanted the story to continue. Author Laura Briggs does a wonderful job drawing out her characters and, even though this story is short, we get a really good view of what the future holds for Adelle and Brandon.

If you’re collecting a library of short reads for yourself, don’t pass up Hidden in Pages.
