Synopsis:
“We hid the body. The money belonged to everyone, but we stole it for ourselves. You have to help me give it back before it’s too late. If I don’t stop this, that money’s gonna drag us all straight down to hell.”
With these words, whispered to hospital chaplain Lindsay Harding as part of a cryptic confession, the stage is set for another intricately-plotted Mount Moriah mystery. All signs point to murder, but no one can find any trace of a body. Lindsay’s sure not all is as it seems, but she’ll need true grit and quick wit to follow a trail back through history to Burnt Island, a remote patch of North Carolina swampland.
Lindsay’s task is complicated by the shifting landscape of her personal life. After pre-wedding jitters jeopardize a relationship that seemed destined to be her best shot at happily-ever-after, Lindsay falls under the spell of a charming stranger. Whether she gets another chance at love will depend on following her heart…and on whether she can keep that heart beating long enough to unlock the mystery of Burnt Island.

She has won a number of awards for her short stories, including the 2013 Bloody Scotland prize. Her non-fiction writing includes an academic article co-authored with the researcher who created Dolly the Sheep. More recently, she was project manager of the Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic, a research clinic founded in Scotland by the author J.K. Rowling. Her work as the coordinator of a pastoral services program at the Duke University Medical Center provided the inspiration for her bestselling Reverend Lindsay Harding mystery series.
She lives in Blacksburg, Virginia, USA, with her Civil War history professor husband, their daughter, and their miniature Schnauzer.

My review:  The Burnt Island Burial Ground by Mindy Quigley A Lindsay Harding Mystery
(Book 3)


4 STARS

This is the first book of the Lindsay Harding mystery that I have read, while it does a good job standing alone I wish I had read the first two books in the series.

The mysteries are confusing and I was really lost on who were the good guys and who not too trust.  

I was confused about who would Lindsay be better off with.  Who does she really want or what does she want.  I guess she has gone through a lot of trials this year.

Lindsay Harding is the main character.  She is a chaplain at the hospital.  That would be a tough job.  She has been dealing with some depression from events that happened in the first two books.  Her boyfriend is confused by his love life too.

Lindsay is staying with her father while she is getting some remodeling done so her grandmother can move in with her.  Her mother is in prison.

A patient in the hospital starts to confess to something but does not come out and tell her everything before he dies.  Did he really confess to murder or just hiding the body.

I like the characters and want to see where they go from here.  Who belongs together?  Who can Lindsay turn to when things go wrong with her life?

This is a clean read that is full of drama, history and mystery.  I had never heard of the historical people and natives before.  I would like to read more up on the Lowery band or Lowery war.

I was given The Burnt Island Burial Ground to read and in return I agreed to give a honest review and be part of it's blog tour.
