Publisher's Summary

Meet Samantha Beck and Rebecca Nisha - two women born 25 years and hundreds of miles apart, yet joined together by a shocking family ritual.

When Samantha discovers the remains of an ancient tribe in Pennsylvania, she expects to at last prove her grandmother's Native American ancestry and to make a name for herself as a budding archaeologist. She does not expect to make an enemy and a lover of a fellow descendant - son of Rebecca Nisha - who unwittingly wears a necklace made of his dead mother's bones.

As the story unfolds, alternating between Samantha's story and Rebecca's 25 years before, Samantha becomes more and more determined to discover the devastating mystery that estranged Rebecca's wealthy Pennsylvania Dutch father from her half-Native American son. Samantha gradually uncovers a troubling secret and decides to risk everything - love and career - to restore harmony to Rebecca's family.

Loved it

I was hooked from the very beginning. It was so hard to put this book down. I listened to the audiobook and I loved it. This story is so much more than just mystery. It has hints of historical, romance, and paranormal. I absolutely loved it!!
The story follows Samantha who is an archeologist while she searches for her ancestors. She runs into Tukihela who at the beginning doesn’t support her research. To avoid giving away spoilers, just know that you will love this book and I highly recommend it. I listened to the audiobook which I also recommend. I enjoyed it and it was nice to hear the narrator do the chanting etc as well.

Storytelling at its finest...

It is so enjoyable to find a book that is beautifully written, well-researched, and positively captivating. The Mystery Tomb is all of the above. The story is told from the points of view of two female characters: Samantha Beck, an archeology grad student and Rebecca Nisha, a young lady of privilege whose tragic death occurred before Samantha was even born. The author alternated between these two main characters and wove an intriguing tale of suspense that deftly incorporated some truly fascinating Native American folklore. The audiobook of this story has the perfect narrator. She reads the story at a good pace and gave each character a distinct voice.

This is a tale of mystery and intrigue with excellent world-building, wonderful authentic characters, a bit of mysticism, and a bit of romance. While not a high-octane adventure story, there is plenty of suspense to keep you turning the pages (or keep you listening) all the way to the satisfying “happily ever after” ending. There is no foul or off-putting language, no explicit sex scenes, and no graphic violence but there is a great story that you won’t soon forget.

I was gifted a copy of this audiobook from the author and the above is my voluntary and unbiased review.
