Review of The Burnt Island Burial Ground
by Mindy Quigley

A true cozy mystery–no foul language, no sexual content, and no graphic violence, that follows the life of a minister’s daughter and hospital chaplain, Lindsay Harding. Lindsay doesn’t act how you would think a chaplain should act, she’s much more human, which is refreshing and realistic. I enjoyed Dunette and Simmy also. I couldn’t help but be disappointed in some of the people that should be more supportive of her — her mother, her boyfriend, which made me feel like I was part of her inner circle. Good job by the author. The book rose slowly to a climax, then settled back down nicely. I especially enjoyed the moments where the book became “thriller-like” with a lot of action. I wish I had read the first two in the series and I can’t wait to see what happens in Book #4.

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.
