Scotland. Archaeological dig. Vikings. All good!
This is a smartly written short story with a charming leading lady, Mari, along with two love struck assistants, and a nasty boss.
I didn't expect as much as I received from this book. The story stayed upbeat with plenty of character development, interesting actions by the characters, and a neat spin towards the middle I didn't see coming but made the story all the more enjoyable.
Highly recommend for quiet time read before bed or at the beach.
I hope this author carries Mari to more stories.
Special note: I don;t normally rate a short story with 5 stars but i really liked this one.
As the story concludes, one is left hoping Holly will come up with another story, perhaps a series of stories, where we will again find Mari using her special talents in equally intriguing circumstances.
When short stories are this good, we readers often yearn for more. We forget that it's s short story.
