American Isabel Palmer is in Venezuela reconnecting with her maternal grandmother when her grandmother gives her the family’s most valuable posession: a 500-year-old diary that belonged to one of the Spaniards in Venezuela. Manuel Santiago agrees to help her translate the diary. In exchange, he can use the information in the diary to locate legendary pearls that were allegedly stolen by her ancestor. But danger follows the two as they begin to search for the pearls, and they may find more than just buried treasure as their attraction spikes. (AUTHORLISAMILLS.COM, Mar., 252 pp., $9.99)
