Kate Lockwood is back in Cold Creek for the wedding of her youngest sister. For anthropologist Kate, the promise of studying some untouched burial mounds is better than dealing with family drama. Unfortunately, she has to convince Grant Mason to let her poke around on his family’s land, if she is to discover anything about the Adena civilization that used to call the area home.

Grant is firm in his notion to let the dead remain undisturbed. Then one of his friends is killed. As Kate and Grant assist the deputy with an investigation into the murder, Kate begins to believe everything is connected to the mound.

When Kate becomes a target, she knows there is a connection between the murder in Cold Creek and the Adena burial mounds. Someone in town has a dark purpose and a desire to keep it secret. It is up to Kate and Grant to put their heads together and solve the mystery before it is too late.

This book is the second in a trilogy and it is possible that reading the first story might answer some the questions a reader will almost certainly ask. The romance in this book is extremely understated and while the friendship between Kate and Grant seems strong, the chemistry is lacking. Hopefully a lot of the loose ends from the subplots going on will be answered in the third book.
