To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Yeah! Back to the brilliant books that Dobbs is known for. A painting, a jungle, snakes, FBI and a possible curse. What more could you ask for. The heroine has grown in character and the plot is brilliant. Loved it
I LOVE this series, and wish there were more available (all at once, so I could binge read them for days). I love the quirky group that is brought together both in the museum staff (Max, Kate, Gideon) and in the Golden Capers (Kate's parent's "retirement" buddies). I enjoy the hint of romance, the museum info, the espionage and the humor in each book! They are more than a "cozy mystery" but not quite as harsh or in depth as a standard mystery novel (which suits me perfectly!)
If you want a fast read and don't want to have to think much, this is a good series for that. It almost has a "young adult" genre feel to it - seems amateurish or something. Definitely not a Baldacci or anything near. It's like a cross between Charlies Angels and a James Bond wannabe. I guess "cute" might be a good description.
Museum investigator Kate Diamond & her crew, the Golden Capers are back again. This time Kate & her gang are involved in locating an ancient Aztec tomb. Complicating her efforts are a shadowy group of bad guys seeking the same treasure. Not only does Kate & company have to survive intense heat, nasty bugs, & bad guys, but there are lots of poisonous snakes, of which Kate is deathly afraid! To quote Indiana Jones, "Snakes, why does there have to be snakes!"
I have been waiting forever for the sequel to Kate's first adventure, Hidden Agemda, to come out. It was worth the wait! A strong plot, lots of action, & an unbelievable ending! (Literally!) can't wait for book 3 to come out. Leighann, write faster!
She actually has to recover from mishaps so she goes on an expedition with her family and friends. She winds up finding the tomb but has to flood it. Now she is partners with Ace Mason. Who knows what will happen next.
