A setting in Greece and a mystery hearkening back to WWII and the relatively young age of our heroine probably contributed to that feeling.

The young woman accompanies her long lost archaeologist father to a volcanic island in Greece to investigate long lost sunken treasure.

Michaels really did write excellent romantic suspense, and one has just a touch of the sort of excitement one looks to Mary Stewart for.

I was oping that her mother or father would reveal that she 'd been there many times as a child, which might have xplained it really nicely.

There, consequently, she appears to find herself as a part of a myth of her namesake, with the unlikely trio of three former resistance fighters ( her father, another archeologist, and dead friend, whose role has been taken by a ephew who resembles him -- and falls for Sandy) and a former Nazi commander who was there at the same time and his consort, a Greek woman who first worked with the resistance but now lives with the former Nazi.
