#BookReview: Mayan Mendacity by L.J.M Owen #NetGalley
Dr Elizabeth Pimms has a new puzzle. What is the story behind the tiny skeletons discovered on a Guatemalan island? And how do they relate to an ancient Mayan queen? The bones, along with other remains, are a gift for Elizabeth. But soon the giver reveals his true nature. An enraged colleague then questions Elizabeth’s family history. Elizabeth seeks DNA evidence to put all skeletons to rest. A pregnant enemy, a crystal skull, a New York foodie, and an intruder in Elizabeth’s phrenic library variously aid or interrupt Elizabeth’s attempts to solve mysteries both ancient and personal.

    1. I know what you mean. I'm constantly adding more books to my TBR even though I know it will take me forever to read them all. Time is always too little. I do want to check out the other books in this series now I've read this one though.

    1. Some scenes were quite hard to read due to what happened. From a purely historical point of view it was interesting though.

    1. It was really just the dog scene and the very end that were tough reading. The rest was fine.
