Treasure among the Shadows by Marie Romero Cash
This is book 3 of Jemimah's Mystery
Treasure among the Shadows sounds good and I was getting all ready for a treasure hunt mystery and ended being a murder mystery, police procedure mystery so was a little disappointed that way. I think if I realized right away it was more murder than treasure would have enjoyed it more.
I saw a few errors in book. talking about Jemimah's background said her father left Mormon church and joined a cult and later said she was excommunicated from Mormon church. It should have been from the cult not Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints(Mormons). (my personal bias)
I love the idea two guys got together and made a treasure hunt. Wish it would have had less about that idea or a lot more. Personally Should right another with people hunting it the focus.
The woman who died in the casino kind of gotten loss in the story.
How did the journals get back in her house hidden? I thought she left for the week. Maybe I missed that part.
It kept my attention and was interesting would be willing to read another book by Marie and see what that story is. I liked some of the characters and wish their was a little more of their off time life so we can connect more to the characters.
I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it by Librarything Early Review program.

A woman is strangled and shot. She was last seen alive at a casino near Santa Fe. Forensic Psychologist Jemimah Hodge is on the case, as is her new boyfriend, Sheriff Rick Romero. The trail has already grown cold when another woman is murdered under similar circumstances. The first dead woman left behind a disgruntled ex-spouse but no other obvious suspects. Gilda Humphreys, the second victim, is another story. First there is her househusband, then there are all her co-workers ... It seems no one is shedding a tear for Gilda. While going through Gilda's field notes, Jemimah discovers that the woman was experiencing a sexual renaissance. Could one of her lovers have killed her? Then there is Tim McCabe's treasure hunt. A wealthy gallery owner and collector, McCabe has buried a chest filled with valuable coins and jewelry and challenged the public to find it. When Gilda wasn't dressing down her co-workers or dallying with lovers, she was searching for McCabe's treasure. Was it greed that killed Gilda? A scorned lover or vengeful co-worker? With so many suspects and so few clues, Rick and Jemimah face one of the most challenging cases of their careers. Treasure Among the Shadows is the third book in Jemimah Hodge Murder Mystery series.
