Ninety years ago, Millie Sullivan's great-grandmother was a guest at oil tycoon Howard Dawkins' palatial estate on the shore of St. Simons Island, Georgia. Now, Millie plays a 1920s-era guest during tours of the same manor. But when her grandmother suggests there is a lost diary containing the location of a hidden treasure on the estate, along with the true identity of Millie's great-grandfather, Millie sets out to find the truth of her heritage - and the fortune that might be hers.
When security guard Ben Thornton discovers her snooping in the estate's private library, he threatens to have her fired. But her story seems almost too ludicrous to be fiction, and her offer to split the treasure is too tempting to pass up....
Get ready for a romantic escapade through dark halls and dusty corners that will have you holding your breath and sighing with delight as two charming characters get caught up in the adventure of uncovering the past and finding their way to an unexpected future.

A Sparkling Ending
I have to be honest, it took me a while to get into this story. But once I did, I was fully invested and finished without stopping.
Millie and Ben are on such an adventure, trying to solve the mystery of Great Grandma Ruth's journal and find the hidden treasure. Each has their own reason why they need money though they are very reluctant to talk about it.
I loved how Millie talked to herself, to the point of the voice in her head taking over and arguing with her. (I can relate)
I liked how Grandma Joy gave such great advice on her more lucid days. Dementia is different for everyone, I think the author portrays this very well.
The romance between Millie and Ben came as a surprise to them. It was very sweet.
No spoilers, but I must say that I loved the conclusion.
The narrator did a great job of bringing the story to life.

Sweet, heartwarming story of past meets present!
A sweet and heartwarming romantic story centered upon family legacies that are so much more than expected, more than the mistakes and regret of the past and present, and about forgiveness and mercy for those who have wronged us—all told amid the charming Georgia coastline in the shadow of a historic chateau.
