4.5 strong stars! I love this author. I will read whatever she writes:) Another fantastic couple, but Holy Trust Issues, Batman! I'm kind of amazed that Grant managed to work through that particular emotional plot bunny. I'm pretty sure if I were Libby, Mark would have groveled a lot more/longer...just sayin'. I loved the intricacies and resolution of the suspense plot, and the romance portion was superb. I would have liked a stronger romantic wrap up at the end, but overall a great read!

Since I loved (and that's a weak word!!!) the two books in the Evidence series, I couldn't miss this one!
And I was right! :D

The story is deliciously complicated! The attraction between Libby and Mark intense. The reasons for Mark distrust realistic.

I love how Ms. Grant manages to make every action true and every reaction exactly what anybody would have.

It's a real treat to read a book so complicated, but so real.

Libby is under so much pressure that is incredible how it is possible for her not

Rachel Grant is a very good author if you are looking for a mystery or the suspense side of a RS. I've read 5 of her books almost in a row, mostly by chance (deals on different times). But I would be dishonest if I didn't add that she's good at what she does, and that's one of the reason I did buy her books.

Grave Danger is a perfect example, the story twists around you until you are not sure what is up and what is down. Her personal background is archaeology and that explains why all her heroine

In this archaeological thriller our heroine, Libby Maitland has been hired to excavate a site so a large corporation can get the permits they need to build a Cultural Center. But things aren’t going smoothly. First unexplained things start happening around her which makes her think her ex who she has had a restraining order against is back stalking her. The local Police Chief, Mark Colby isn’t all that helpful at first. But it’s not long before he realizes that maybe she’s not crazy and there is

This is the third of Rachel Grants novels that I've devoured over the last week. They are all top notch Romantic Suspense finds. I usually reserve my 5 stars (and written reviews) for "really good quality" fiction, and while it's one of my favorite genres, Romantic Suspense doesn't lend itself to life altering novels. But, I chose to give these novels five stars because the portrayal of archeology (from government work to private contractors to the dig bums) was so spot on. I worked briefly in t ...more

My first book by Rachel Grant, although I have been collecting them for ages, and I have about 7 consecutive ones in my kindle of her archeological romantic suspense series.

This has been quite entertaining, but I thought the heroine was a bit of a doormat, too fast to forgive the hero after he treated her so appallingly. Not really your female version of Indiana Jones just yet, but I may be persuaded to follow her in the rest of the series.
The slight disappointment with her heroine was probabl

A keep-you-on-the-edge-of-your-seat book. A carefully layered, mysterious murder drives a wedge in the romance between the archaeologist who finds the body in her dig and the police chief who has to investigate the murder. Plenty of secrets, excellent detail on how archaeologists work, and a well-laid out Washington State setting make this a great read.
It was okay well not until when the males gone territorial.

I eventually skimmed.

This was definitely an interesting read. One of the things I liked were the different POV's. it wasn't just the the two main characters we also got some insight from the secondary characters and the killer/stalker!

So basically Libby is an archeologist that is sent to a little town called Coho, WA to do an excavation and report on the local Indian tribe. She is hired by Jack Caruthers who is trying to build a cultural center. His son Jason Caruthers, a hot shot attorney from Se

Grave Danger is my second Rachel Grant novel and I thoroughly enjoyed her voice and story telling. Since RS is a favorite genre of mine to read, when it delivers a great balance of suspenseful storyline mixed with the perfect blend of romance...color me happy. Ms. Grant hit the mark on both counts with Grave Danger.

Once again, as was the case in Concrete Evidence, the field of Archaeology provides the perfect backdrop for the drama unfolding for Libby Maitland who just wants to do the best job s

4 Suspense filled stars! This is my second Rachel Grant novel and I have yet to be disappointed. I liked the constant suspense of this book, and the line of doubt even had me questioning is Libby was legit at one point in the book!

Libby is working a project that could make or break her fragile company/career. After a rough assignment prior to this one she needs everything to run smoothly on this dig, but this project is anything but smooth. Libby finds herself questioning if the little things ha

I loved the body in evidence (review later) and so does this book. Rachel Grant really know her stuff in romantic suspense.
The story kick of with an archaeologist, Libby reported her stolen track to the local police chief, Mark. Spark flew and she also flirting banter is so lovable. The mystery evolved as more past of Libby is uncover that made our hero suspicious escalating. As the dig continues, she discover a bones whom she believes as murder victim o

I could not put this book down. It hooks you very tightly!!

What I liked: This is a fantastic romantic suspense. As a matter of fact, it reminds me somewhat of Linda Howard's works. Not quite as intricate yet but Ms Grant has the tools. Grave Danger is a complete novel, It's well written, pacing is great, and the character's development is right on point. I had absolutely no idea who the bad guy was. Well, I thought I did. Color me surprised. The attraction/tension between Libby and Mark was just
This was an entertaining romantic suspense book!

The Center is being built on land with Native American artifacts buried in it. Libby runs into two issues. One, the Native American tribe wants her to conduct and publish an in depth report about the ill-treatment of the Indians by the previous and deceased white landowner, Lyle Montgomery.

a wonderful 4 star read, review to come...:)

I enjoyed the book, and I particularly liked all the information about archaeology. I would have liked the ending to be different. I think a certain cop had one to many chances and should have been given the heave-ho...:)
Archaeologist Libby Maitland no sooner lands the project of a lifetime, a data recovery excavation in a small town in the Pacific Northwest when she fears she is being stalked, or is she? She enlists the help of the very handsome chie

This story felt very real. Libby is a no-nonsense heroine, who is confident in her work. She had some problems with an ex, which affected her last job, and has shaken some of her confidence in her personal life. She meets Mark when she comes out of a restaurant to discover that her truck is missing and goes to the police station to report it stolen. I kind of expected that at that point Mark would be all "I know that your an honest person (even though I just met you) and can tell your being set ...more

Grave Danger is an excellent romantic suspense novel. I particularly enjoy Rachel Grant’s books because, like me, she has a background in contract archeology. In Grave Danger, archeologist Libby Maitland has landed a great contract in a small town in the Pacific Northwest. She can deal with the usual problems of the business, keeping the crew at work and the clients happy, but she’s got serious trouble this time: a burial where there shouldn’t be a burial, and a stalker no one else, especially n ...more

Rachel Grant’s new novel Grave Danger is concrete evidence that her talent is rock solid. I really enjoyed the strong thread of authenticity Grant’s expertise as an archaeologist brings to an intriguing mystery set in an historic sawmill town in the Pacific Northwest. Just when you think life can’t get any worse for archaeologist Libby Maitland, it does—especially when police chief Mark Colby can’t decide whether he should believe her or the evidence when a data recovery excavation yields an une ...more

I received a copy of this book in the goodreads giveaway. I have to say that this book was written perfectly!!! Nothing could have made it better than it was. Filled with suspicion of all characters involved, just when you think you have a character figured out you start wondering if they are really all they seem to be. This book had me drawn in from the very start. I look forward to reading more books written by this author. This book was perfection on a page.

Great RS with the perfect balance of suspense & action and romance. Libby is an excellent and realistic heroine (who's also a scientist like me) and Mark... oh, Mark. He's put in an untenable position with his scorching attraction to Libby, who looks like the perfect suspect for all that's going on, and though he's a complete wanker for a good chunk of the book, he's also a real sweetheart and can grovel like a champ. Can't wait to read more from this author! ...more

I loved, loved, loved this book!

It had a little bit of everything and had me on such a roller coaster ride of emotions that I didn't want it to end.

This was well written. The characters were great, their dialogue flowed well and the description to detail was so graphic I was able to easily visualize everything.

I laughed, I cried, I had my lil heart twinges when things got emotional.

Would I recommend this book? Oh yes!!!

Would I read more from this author? Oh yes!!

I was born and raised in Oregon. Washington is just across the way and I can step into the backdrop of this book easily. Also I have always wanted to be an Archeologist. Digging up history can be either a boring every day job or you can accidentally find things people don't you to dig up. I love this book.

This was a great romantic suspense. I enjoyed the main characters, Libby Maitland and Mark Colby, and loved seeing their relationship develop. The storyline was intriguing, and kept my attention. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story of an archaeologist who is being stalked, and am looking forward to more by this author.

This is a GREAT Romantic Suspense novel by Rachel Grant that blends true archeological information with a very intricate plot that always had me second guessing. The characters are strong and believable so the romance is just as plausible as the plot.

I am so glad this author was recommended to me and I tell all my friends about her. Can't wait for the next book!

A great romantic suspense! I loved the conflict between the H/h, and I had trouble putting this one down. I didn't guess the identity of the antagonist, and there were several good suspects. That's unusual. All too often I know "who done it," but Grant keep the suspense going. I've read all her books, loved them all, but I think this one's my favorite.

WOW!! This book had me an edge, a good edge. Once the middle of this book hit, it was a full ride to the end!! All my "suspects" didn't even come close when it was revealed. Is there a second book? I sense there is story with Simone....
