ARTIFACT, A Jaya Jones Treasure Hunt Mystery by Gigi Pandian

When Jaya reads in the paper that her lover from the past has been killed on an archeologist dig, she finds herself more upset than she expected.  Had she really cared for him enough to feel this badly?  It gets even more confusing when she gets a package from the dead man containing an artifact...

Henery Press and Net Galley allowed me download a copy of this ebook for review (thank you).  It will be published August 6th, so watch for it.  If you like adventures, you'll want to read this one.

Jaya goes to the local university to see if anyone can identify this anklet with a ruby in it that is missing several stones.  It turns out to be a bracelet you wear further up your arm and it's part of a stolen treasure.  If this isn't hard enough to swallow, Jaya's apartment gets overturned by someone trying to steal it.

Jaya decides to go the dig to get some answers.  This is a convoluted tale with Indian and English history tied into it as well as more than one thief and now a murderer, too.  Jaya ends up with a romance conflict, has no idea who she can really trust because everyone has secrets, and I found it to be an exciting tale with a wonderful ending.  I don't think Jaya story is done yet, though.  I expect there to be more in this series.

Why don't you get a copy of the book and go hunting artifacts yourself?

Happy reading.
