Mayan Mendacity (Dr Pimms, Intermillennial Sleuth #2) by L.J.M. Owen


Summary: 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.

With archaeological intrigue, forensic insight and cosy comfort, Mayan Mendacity takes readers back into the world of Dr Pimms, Intermillennial Sleuth. Really cold cases.


My Review:  FINALLY A BOOK SET IN GUATEMALA!!!!!  I was really wanting a book that was set in Guatemala and I found this one and I loved it. I didn’t realize it was second in a series but I don’t think it took away from the story. It started off kinda weird and creepy **SPOILER** THEY KILL A DOG ugh I hate that and I almost stopped reading because of that, but I am glad I didn’t because our Mayan queen gets revenge.

I loved the story and the characters and I am very glad I stumbled across this book in Netgalley. The characters were delightfully complex and once I started getting into the plot I did not want to put it down. I would not put it down… in fact the book kept me up until 3am. Thank goodness I am between jobs now 🙂

I will continue reading this author and this series and I do plan on going back and reading book one as I feel the author has a style of writing I absolutely love.

Very well done novel
