On the "island of roses and ruins" - Gotland in the Baltic Sea - a shy librarian and a dashing FBI agent must work together to catch a killer and recover a priceless silver treasure in this sweetly romantic suspense novel from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jenna Bennett.
When Annika Holst's father dies, it's up to the young librarian to carry out his last will: to take his ashes back to his hometown, medieval Visby on the Swedish island of Gotland.
But no sooner does the plane touch down in Stockholm, than the bag with the cremains goes missing. A young American named Nick Costa comes to Annika's aid... but can she trust the handsome stranger? And what of Curt Gardiner, another young man from “back home,” also visiting his mother’s native Sweden?
To catch a murderer, recover her father’s ashes, and find a missing Viking treasure, Annika has to put her trust in one of them. But the wrong choice could mean not only the loss of her heart... but of her life as well.

Great Romantic/mystery book
This was a great read for anyone who likes mystery and romance. Like all of Jenna Bennett's books these characters were very likable. The book takes place in Europe which made the book even more interesting. All around great read.
What a cool Swedish mystery. I loved the setting and the characters. The FBI agent with his dark good looks and the lovely Annika Holst with her mission to return her Father's ashes to his homeland begin an adventure steeped in intrigue. Great chemistry amidst murders and an old museum theft complete with lost Viking treasure.
