Thank you to HarperCollins and NetGalley for an arc in exchange for an honest review.

It’s a little bittersweet to know that this is the last Ruth Galloway book. I’ve been following these books for years — I love the archaeology aspects and adore the mystery. This book really brings this series full circle. (I don’t want to put spoilers, you’re just going to have to read!).

In this last book all of our previous characters return, Shona and Phil, Clough (love him!), Tanya, Tony, and several new ones as well. And of course we have Cathbad and Judy as well! It was so nice to see everyone together in this book as they work to solve the mystery.

This had everything that I’ve loved about previous books in it; we get our action, our mystery solving, our romantic entanglements and all these pieces are woven together in this conclusion.

I thought Griffiths closed out the series nicely — but also leaves room if there is a chance of more.
