Summary: (from goodreads) Petty thief Birdie Kaminsky has arrived in Liberty, Ohio to steal a treasure hidden since the Civil War. She’s in possession of a charming clue passed down in her family for generations: Liberty safeguards the cherished heart.

The beautiful thief wants to go straight. She secretly admires the clue’s author, freedwoman Justice Postell, who rose above the horrors of slavery to build a new life in Ohio. According to family lore, Justice left South Carolina at the dawn of the Civil War. Heavy with child, she carried untold riches on her journey north. As Birdie searches for the treasure, she begins to believe a questionable part of the story: a tale of love between Justice and Lucas Postell, the French plantation owner who was Birdie’s ancestor.

If the stories are true, Justice bore a child with Lucas. Some of those black relatives might still live in town. Birdie can’t help but wonder if she’s found one—Liberty’s feisty matriarch, Theodora Hendricks, who packs a pistol and heartwarming stories about Justice. Birdie doesn’t know that an investigative reporter who has arrived in town will trip her up—as will her conscience when she begins to wonder if it’s possible to start a new life with stolen riches. Yet with each new clue she unearths, Birdie begins to discover a family history more precious than gems, a tradition of love richer than she could imagine.

Birdie Kaminsky is a petty thief that has grown up with stealing ingrained in her lifestyle. After all this time of stealing, she wants to start a new life. One where she doesn't have to look over her shoulder. Birdie has a clue to a family treasure from Civil war times, but she just has a tiny newspaper clipping to go by.

When Birdie starts searching for the treasure in this little town called Liberty, Ohio where she ends up meeting this reporter named Hugh. Hugh and Birdie have amazing sexual chemistry and you can't but help feel the tension every time they are in a room together. While staying in Liberty, Birdie makes friends with a shotgun of a lady named Theodora and she finds out she might have clues to the treasure.

Even though the book is about a treasure, it is about redeeming yourself even after everything that has happened in your life. Treasure Me was a mix of mystery, love and history all into one and a very lovely read.
