I've now read all six books in this series and it seems to me it got better with every book. I was lukewarm on the first one but completely enthralled by Ashes and Bones. I'm sorry the series stops here.

Ashes and Bones

As usual Dana Cameron a great job developing her characters and allowing them to populate her story. Well done Ms. Cameron.

This is the 6th in Dana Cameron's Emma Fielding mystery series, and the last one, I think. And unfortunately that meant the book was referring back to all kinds of events and characters that I knew nothing about. I also was expecting more about archeology, which was what led me to pick up the book from the library sale in the first place. I believe Cameron's other books have more of that in it. I felt this one had enough promise that I'll try another of her books and I suspect I'll like it more ...more

I originally picked this up because the cover art. (Yep I’m on of those who’s attracted by clever cover art. Brings out my Kaylee type “Shiny” response.) I found this to be a little disappointing though. It might have been better had I read the previous books in the series, especially the prequel to this one in which the characters had previous experience with one another. I didn’t particularly like the main character or many of the other characters for that matter. I sure as heck wouldn’t want ...more

Ashes and Bones is part of Dana Cameron's Emma Fielding Mystery series. Emma Fielding is an archaeologist. Well, she is an academic as she only goes out in the field one time in the novel. Her life tho seems to be going well until a man from her past wreaks havoc in her life and those around her causing everyone to question her. The novel - first one I read in the series - flows smoothly for the first 2/3 then it seems as tho Cameron is stretching to make the ending fit. It just seemed forced, t ...more

I really enjoyed this book. I did not read any of the series before this book but I was able to piece together some of what had previously happened. I knew who was behind all the problems pretty early on since Emma was pretty much screaming his name at anyone who would listen (and they all told her she was wrong). I couldn't figure out how he was doing all of it at first but it was all revealed piece by piece. I kind of wish that the author hadn't revealed who was behind everything so quickly bu ...more

What I learn from this book is that poor Emma has it all in her life a great job, a great husband. But as you know that in life when you got are happy. There is always jealousy. That's what happend to Emma she thougth that the man that she kill by accident she saw him in the airport, when she was comming back home with her husband. Then she keeps having this really bad dreams about her getting shot and loosing all of her blood, and almost dying. I really reccomended this book if you like mistery

I think if I had read the previous books in this series first I may have enjoyed it more. I didn't like how everything was so neatly tied up at the end...it just seemed like it all happend to fast, and I felt that the reason that the main villian was out to get her wasn't clear, again, if I had read the previous books maybe I would have understood it a bit better.

Just finished this book the other day. Nice end to the series. If you like cozy mysteries with a little information about Archeology on the side, then this is a nice little 6 book series. Dana Cameron is litterate and a real Archeologist. I liked learning about the profession and about early life in the colonies.

This is the worst book I've read in a long time. I am not even sure I'm going to finish it. I like mysteries but these characters are so cartoon-like and the situations so contrived it's laughable.

I was born and raised in New England and I live in Massachusetts now, with my husband and benevolent feline overlords. Mine is a quiet, fairly ordinary life. I love that because it's what saves me from an overdeveloped sense of paranoia and a tendency to expect the worst. Combined with an eye for detail and a quirky take on life, these traits give me a vivid internal
