an exciting ride that has you reading at breakneck speed just to find out what happens I was immediately hooked on the setting and the background story of Riki and Dallas There is a lot of WWII history given which drags you in I loved the story of the pearl itself and it was totally plausible given the rollout within the book and history presented You always think of treasure hunting in the ocean, but I loved the backdrop of the mountains of Australia This book dove right in and I took off running with it Yes, it s a romance, but the story around it is very intriguing Lots of action, suspense, even some humor along the way I loved Riki and Dallas Riki is a tough girl Trained by the best to be able to handle any situation by herself with ease She s true to her word and if she says you re going down, I d believe her Dallas what a sweetheart He s a charmer for sure and such a romantic at heart I could easily see them together so the couple clicked with me My only complaint their quiet sexy times were left to my imagination Boo I generally don t mind a clean read, but I seriously wanted to read what sexy Dallas was getting down to with Riki The Jewel Intrigue series are all stand alone books as each treasure hunting adventure is different Monica McCabe has put herself in my sights Phantom Pearl is a winner and I can t wait to read what adventure she pens next 4 Stars 3

exciting read copy rec d for review considerationfull review Riki Maddox and Dallas Landry want the Phantom Pearl for very different reasons and that has pit them against each other And it s not a rivalry that is new either Riki has rubbed Dallas s losses in his face by winning the treasure hunt or rather, artefact first, leaving him a laughing stock in front of Homeland Security and Dallas has finally, finally caught up this time around in the search for the Pearl It s a chase that takes them half around the world and as they tangle with the Yakuza, Riki Maddox and Dallas Landry want the Phantom Pearl for very different reasons and that has pit them against each other And it s not a rivalry that is new either Riki has rubbed Dallas s losses in his face by winning the treasure hunt or

half around the world and as they tangle with the Yakuza, Riki and Dallas learn that there is no end to treachery and are forced to reevaluate the meaning of allies and foes.Coming off Phantom Pearl is akin to stepping off the platform of a roller coaster ride still woozy and dazed, with the sun a little too bright in my eyes It s that exciting a ride which makes you quite paradoxically want to slow down to savour every moment of it even as the pace picks up enough to break your neck I was immediately intrigued by the setting and the context, never having even heard of Yamashita s gold despite having having some kind of familiarity with Asia Pacific history Monica McCabe blends fact and fiction seamlessly and easily made this summer blockbuster material for me, where every page is filled with wry humour, unexpected laughs and a treasure hunting adventure in far flung locations rich in mystery, action and swashbuckling romance It s so different from many romantic suspense adventure type stories set in South America or even Europe that Phantom Pearl s sheer daring was enough to make me sit up and take notice While I couldn t exactly swallow the sudden realisation of love sneaking over both Dallas and Riki just as I couldn t quite imagine the huge climatic scene in Singapore s largest shipyard happening without setting off international furore, I m reminded yet again that Phantom Pearl is fiction layered over fact and it s all in the name of having an entertaining good time which I did The Jewel Intrigue series are all standalones all the books are entirely unrelated, linked loosely only by the theme of treasure hunting and every story is a thrill ride that needs no prior knowledge to enjoy McCabe is going instantly on my watch and read list and needless to say, I can t wait to see what else she has up her sleeve ARC by netgalley ever grateful, as always
