An empty grave. A century of secrets revealed. Can she heal the deadly curse of her family’s sordid past before she loses the love of her life forever?

Emma Ambrose purposely stays away from her family’s Texas oil estate, throwing herself into her work as an archeologist in the tombs of Egypt. Ancient mummies are infinitely safer than the family curse that follows the Ambrose Estate heiress. A curse that dooms her to never finding love—because it means certain death for any man who falls in love with her.

At night, Ian Phelps is a man drowning in grief after losing his wife in a tragedy. By day, he’s the county coroner, tagging dead people while mourning with those who have lost loved ones. But meeting Emma Ambrose—under the most unusual circumstances—shows him that life isn’t over yet. Her wild auburn hair, sexy curves, and whip-smart brains may be just what he needs to come alive again.

Together, Ian and Emma discover a family graveyard with secrets that defy the impossible. A series of ancient tragedies continue to affect the present—as well as the future. Can the pair of star-crossed lovers reverse the deadly hundred-year-old Ambrose Curse once and for all?

Rating: Mild. Mild kissing.

    I enjoyed the mystery aspect of this book quite a bit. Trying to figure out where a missing body disappeared to would be daunting and it was interesting to see them follow the clues to figure it out. And thank heavens for the DNA testing of modern times to be able to get definitive answers.

    I liked the mystery part of the book a little better than the romance part. I had a hard time feeling the transition from interesting stranger to love interest. There is a lot of kissing (nothing more than that) but I’m always more interested in what led up to the kissing than the kissing itself so I felt like I didn’t get enough of that.

    I liked both Emma and Travis. They had interesting careers to read a little about. Not career choices I read a lot about in romance novels. Each of the Ambrose sisters have been interesting characters.

    I have enjoyed this series. The whole idea of a family curse is intriguing. The journal the sisters get clues from is terribly sad even if it does have a happier ending. I was glad to see they got so many answers to their family questions about the curse and previous generations of family. I look forward to reading about the other sisters.
