The Unlikely Gift of Treasure Blume Blog Tour

With her love of sweaters, goofy hair, and awkward manners—not to mention her family curse—Treasure Blume knows love is not in her future. That is, until she matches wits with Dennis Cameron, a divorced chef with a six-year-old daughter. Full of mischief, mayhem, and laugh-out-loud humor, this is an unlikely love story you’ll want to read over and over again!

Treasure Blume has the coolest name.  Treasure.  Love that.

This book started out pretty slow for me.  I spent the first third of the thinking that this was labeled incorrectly as a romance.  When I finally got to the part where Dennis enters the picture, things started to pick up.  By the end of the book I was smiling and rooting for Dennis and Treasure.

Treasure has this family curse that makes everyone instantly dislike her.  Well, except for young children and old people.  When you take that into account, that doesn't leave very good odds for a great romantic life.  Poor Treasure.  I think the word that comes to mind when I think of Treasure is tenacious.  Second up would be compassionate.  She is a great character.  I sure am glad she found some help in the clothing department though.

This book has a whole cast of colorful characters from Grammy and her dancing team, to school teachers and of course Dennis and his daughter.

I loved when Grammy entered into a gift wrap competition.  That is hilarious.  I want to see one of those in real life some day.  I think my mother in law should enter.  She has spent years working in gift wrap and she does an amazing job wrapping.

All in all a good book.  I enjoyed it.  Squeeky clean and fun.

You can purchase this book at Cedar Fort and Amazon.
