Finder's Keepers by Sarah Monzon

From the publisher:

Three lives. Three hundred years. One ship that ties them together.

Spain, 1689
The same evil that stole her mother’s life stalks Isabella Castellano. Afraid for her safety, Isabella disguises herself as a cabin boy and hires on to one of His Majesty’s treasure fleet vessels. But has her flight from a known threat only led her to be ensnared in a sea of dangers?

Florida, Present Day
Summer Arnet will go anywhere to capture the perfect shot that will get her marine photography noticed by the prestigious nature magazine, Our World—even diving in waters haunted by great white sharks. When a treasure hunter with a ladies’-man reputation approaches her about a sunken ship at one of her dive locations, it may be the chance she’s been looking for to launch her career…if his charming smile doesn’t derail her first.
A past tragedy has left a hole in Trent Carrington’s life—a hole he’s tried to fill with women, money, and adventure. Could the feisty marine photographer be the missing piece, or will Trent finally accept that the treasure he seeks can’t be found where rust and moths destroy? 

Do you like historical fiction and contemporary fiction? This book is the perfect blend of both! The book goes between 1689 and Present Day. It goes between and weaves the lives and stories together.  Both stories will keep you reading.  Each could be its own book if the author had wanted to develop it that way but it was a great blend. 

Isabella's story is one of strength.  She may be a woman but she will rise the challenges that come her way and make a new path for herself. This was empowering to read but also showed how we all need someone in our corner.  A friend, a relative, a love.  Each has a special part that we crave. 

Summer is an oceanic photographer who still grieves in her heart for the father she never knew.  Trent is an adventure seeking womanizer who is about to learn about love and maturity where he didn't expect it.  I liked how Summer's past and Trent's present lifestyle weaved together. I thought that was really well done.

Spiritually, there were a few conversations that really stand out to me. Each person reading this will probably find a conversation that strikes them.

I received this ebook free from the author in exchange for my honest review.
