Cleverly has obviously done her research into 1920s France, and this authenticity lends a nice touch to her second book about aspiring archaeologist Laetitia, a funny, charismatic character who meets her match in William. Let's hope he appears in the next mystery.

Laetitia Talbot is heartbroken over the violent death of her beloved godfather, Daniel Thorndon. Laetitia heads to France to investigate. Through some manipulation, Laetitia gets a job on the excavation site of an old church in Burgundy.

Her father demands that she travel with a bodyguard, so former soldier William Gunning accompanies her. Laetitia and William become entangled in a French family's secrets and an ancient Celtic mystery, and her investigation into Daniel's death puts her own life in jeopardy and unearths more secrets than she bargained for.
