Jennifer's Review
Treasure Fever is a good book. I enjoyed reading it. 
It’s about a woman named Lexa who is determined to find a rare treasure. She breaks into a library, gets her information from a manuscript, and goes on the run. She goes to foreign countries in search of the fabled treasure called El Dorado.  She is soon being pursued by a guy named Max who works for the NSA, but when they meet, Max falls in love with her and decides to help her. 
Together, the two of them hop from country to country getting help from a taxi driver. 
Meanwhile another NSA agent is sent after them with bodyguards; he soon finds them and the chase is on. Do Max and Lexa ever find the treasure? Does the other NSA agent, Dean, find them, and if so, what does he do? What happens to Max and Lexa and Dean? 
I give this book 3 stars.
