If You Like Mary Anna Evans Books, You’ll Love…

Artifacts is the first book in the Faye Longchamp Archaeological Mysteries series. The book starts with Faye doing her best to hang to Joyeuse, a moldering plantation hidden along the Florida coast. The house has been in the family since her great-great-grandmother Cally came to own the plantation as a newly freed slave and it has been in the family ever since. Now, taxes are getting beyond Faye’s ability to pay them so she decides to go digging for artifacts on the property to try and pay down the debt. Instead of finding something worth money, she instead finds a human skull. Instead of going to the authorities she decides to investigate the murder herself.

Another good book in the series is called Catacombs and this one has Faye staying at a historic Oklahoma City hotel when an explosion hits. She is rocked, but okay. The explosion has a silver lining though as it manages to crack open the old hotel’s floor to reveal subterranean chambers that had housed Chinese immigrants a century before. It is a fascinating find and Faye is excited to check it out, but when the bodies of three children are found down there her fascination turns to dread.
