I really don't know how to explain how much I enjoyed The Treasures of Venice. Venice... how romantic. I was swept away from the very beginning. A handsome stranger walks up to Samantha and asks her to play along and act like they are together. (Yes, please!) Most of the chapters end with a flash back to Serafina and Nino in 1485 Venice; you notice some correlation between the two couples.

I would really recommend this to any fan of romance/historical fiction.

From GoodReads:

When American librarian Samantha Lewis and Irish rogue Keirnan Fitzgerald set off to find priceless jewels, they become embroiled in a 500-year-old love story that eerily prefigures their own...

In 15th century Venice, beautiful and wealthy Serafina falls in love with Nino, a young Florentine sculptor. They decide to flee to Padua, and to fund the trip, Nino copies a set of jewels that then disappear.

In modern-day Venice, Keirnan needs Samantha's help to locate the jewels so he can pay his sister's ransom. Samantha must decide whether the man she's so drawn to is her soul mate from a previous life...or are they merely pawns in a relentless quest for a priceless treasure?
