Two players, one rule: FINDERS KEEPERS
A Latin puzzle hides the clues to a lost Scottish treasure for more than a century.
By: Claude Dancourt, author
When Salome enlists in the Medieval Latin literature class, her plan is fairly simple: meet the evasive Professor Graham face-to-face, pick his brain about the Pierce riddle, and be on her way before he starts spelling ‘treasure hunter’. As best laid plans go, though, by the end of her first class, she and the famous scholar’s son, Alec, are fighting like cats and dogs. Bickering leads to kissing, and kissing leads to…well, more arguing. The Latin puzzle is the key to finding the long lost Highland Heart, a diamond and emerald brooch that belonged to the Stuart royal family. The translation is the easy part, even if trees, shells and Hell make little sense together. Alec Graham is Sam’s best chance to help her unravel the mystery and reap its reward. It doesn’t mean she has to agree to all of his terms.
“Classic authors shaped our language,” says Claude Dancourt. “I had fun including some bits of Scottish History in this treasure hunt.”
The characters are solid, complex and intriguing. The plot is laced with action, humor, and enough twists to keep you guessing. These characteristics will make FINDERS KEEPERS impossible to put down.
FINDERS KEEPERS is available for the nook and kindle ($1.99) on Amazon, Barnes & Nobles, Kobo, iBook, Smashwords and all good retailers.
