For Celeste Blackmoore and her sisters, locating a hundred year old buried treasure in the gold mining ghost town of Dead Water sounds like an easy job ... until they find themselves facing threats from both sides of the grave.
While dealing with a ghost who wants revenge, a sheriff who wants to lock them up and a thieving stranger who wants them out of town, the girls find themselves using their unique paranormal skills to investigate a century old secret that holds the key to the treasure.
Throw in a hunky bartender, a shotgun toting old timer, a mysterious stranger from their past and, of course, their trusty cat Belladonna who always knows just where to look (if only the sisters would listen to her!) and the girls soon discover that looking for buried treasure can be deadly.
In a town where no one, including the ghosts, are what they seem, can the girls find the treasure before they end up in grave danger?
I really enjoy the Blackmoore Sisters Mysteries. In Buried Secrets, they head West on a treasure hunting trip with Luke, one of the sisters’ boyfriends and his team. I like that the people around the women recognize, and believe in, their powers.
I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about the sisters leaving their hometown, but since they took all of the recurring characters with them, it didn’t really matter much. The girls piece together what happened Dead Water’s past and get right in the middle of some present day illegal activities. Overall, it’s a bit predictable, but there was a least one twist I didn’t see coming.
I would suggest starting the series at the beginning. They’re light, quick read that are just fun. There are a lot of characters though, and a variety of powers, so I think starting with #1 allows you to get introduced to them all and get to know them.
I’m looking forward to the next in the series, where I hope we learn more about Belladonna the cat and the mysterious Matteo who always shows up just in the nick of time and then disappears.
