's review

it was amazing

Great for readers of cosy mystery and history and family drama.

Having now read this book and the next in the series I can say both books were great reads especially the history and the forensics. They're well written, kept me guessing to the end and the author obviously knows the subjects. The Olmecs and Mayans (second book) were both intriguing cultures but a bit sickening and upsetting with some of their cultural practices but then maybe that's true for all cultures.

Reading these books made me feel both happy and sad. My daughter is like Elizabeth. She's bright, focussed on her work and had a tough time at school. It was painful to watch her struggle with bullying. The same confusion and hurt in my daughter by not knowing automatically how to get along with loud or outgoing people seems to be part of the Elizabeth character although maybe that’s not what the author intended. It made me happy to see this kind of character as a lead character and I'm looking forward to giving it to my daughter to read as I'm sure it will make her feel good to see a character that was bullied at school become the lead character in a series.

A great find.
