Exposing Amber by Elizabeth Goddard

This week's feature title is:

Exposing Amber
by Elizabeth Goddard
HP #913
ISBN 978-1-60260-912-9

About The Book:
A historian should love the past…unless it’s his own.

Brandon Selman is struggling to reestablish his position and reputation as a competent museum director. Hampered by scandal from his last post, he is determined to stay on the straight and narrow. He especially will not allow himself to be taken in by any innocent-looking college student interns.

Amber McKinsey is excited to learn she’s been accepted as a summer intern for the Harrington museum. Working under Dr. Selman is just the opportunity she needs to determine the direction her future studies should take. But the reality is not the dream, and her own secrets threaten to undo her.

Then, a valuable artifact disappears and Amber is the likely suspect. How can Amber leave the shadows of the past behind when they follow her so closely? And could Brandon have misjudged a woman so badly again? Will either of them learn to trust or forgive before it’s too late?

From the Book:
He grabbed his keys and exited the museum.

Walking backward, he gazed up at the large letters. The Harrington Natural and Cultural Museum.

Everything was riding on his making this museum work. Everything. He’d been given a chance to prove himself.

An image of the young intern with dark hair flashed before his eyes, replacing that of the museum. He turned toward the Jeep and heard the telltale chirp of the lock’s disengagement. She was a striking beauty, really. Good thing he wasn’t one to easily fall for beautiful women.

The last thing he needed was an ever-present reminder of his past failures, lingering around the museum every day.

I'm a big-time history buff and I LOVE museums. I'm anticipating visiting the Cook County Historical Society Museum in Chicago next month and learning about The Great Chicago Fire and Al Capone, Wrigley Gum and the history of the Lincoln Park Zoo. (And a zillion other things too. :) )
Question of the day: Are you a fan of museums, and if so, what's one of your favorites?


  1. Oh, I first heard about this book on "The Borrowed Book" blog, and I really want to read it! ;) Sounds great!

    I do enjoy going to museums, and while I had an interesting time this summer visiting the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. (even though we barely had time to do anything--there are so many buildings!), my favorite museum is the High Desert Museum near Bend, Oregon. I love their exhibits, the atmosphere...everything!



  2. I haven't been to many museums so I'm pretty fond of our Museum of Nature and Science here in Denver.

    But I HAVE been to the Louvre and still my heart.

  3. Cindy, my family went to the Science Museum in Denver last fall while I was at a conference. Their pictures were so neat!

    I'm anticipating a trip to the Field Museum in Chicago next month. :)

    I also love all the MN Historical Society Sites that I've been to. If I'm counting correctly, I've been to 15 of the 20 so far. :)

  4. Love love love museums! And I can't wait to read Beth's book!

  5. I love visiting Ellis Island in NYC Harbor, the immigrant stories are so fascinating!
