Lindsey is enjoying her second year in Briar Creek as the library director, meeting with the crafternoon club, and happily dating tour boat captain Mike Sullivan. But when a salvage company arrives in town to dig up treasure buried on Pirate Island over three hundred years ago, the locals are torn between protecting the island and welcoming the publicity.
In spite of the squabbling, Charlie Peyton, Lindsey’s downstairs neighbor, takes a job with the salvage company. But when Trudi Hargrave, the local tourism director who hired the company, is found murdered at the excavation site, Charlie becomes the chief suspect. To help him, Lindsey must do some digging of her own before the real killer buries the truth for good .
Here is what I thought
So by now you must know I am loving this series since I am just speeding through them! I love it!
My only problem is I forget to review one before starting the next one and then they start to fade into one another…lol.
So in this one Briar Creek gets treasure fever when some treasure hunters come to try and find Captain Kidd’s pirate treasure on one of the islands. Not everyone is happy about this especially Milton one of the towns historians and he is seen arguing with Trudi, the one who has brought the salvage company to Briar Creek.
When Trudi is found dead of course Milton is going to be one of the suspects but Lindsay can’t believe that nice old man capable of murder so she starts to investigate. There are a few people in town who Trudi rubbed the wrong way as she just wasn’t a real nice person but when a map goes missing it points Lindsay in a direction to at least check up on.
Also, Lindsay’s ex shows up trying to woo her back but she is not going to be wooed as she likes Sully and her life in Briar Creek but it does cause some problems. 🙁
I think one of the things I like the most about this one besides Sully and Lindsay, is that the mystery of Ruby Island is finally solved so we at least know what happened there.
I have falling in love with this series and so I highly recommend it to any cozy lover!
