Digging Up History by Sheila Connolly

Hello my cozy friends,

Today I am discussing "Digging Up History" the 8th installment in the "A Museum Mystery" by Sheila Connolly.

Print Length: 221 pages
Publisher: Beyond the Page Publishing (June 25 2019)
Genre: Historical Fiction , Mystery

The New York Times bestselling author of Dead End Street returns with Nell Pratt discovering one of Philadelphia’s darker buried secrets . . .
When a summer intern at the Preservation Society discovers an aged document hidden in the binding of an antique book, Society president Nell Pratt is intrigued by the possibilities: is it a valuable historic document or just a useless scrap of paper? When analysis reveals that it’s a hand-drawn map of one of Philadelphia’s oldest neighborhoods, Nell learns that the area is being excavated for a new real estate development and may hold long-buried secrets from the city’s historic heyday.
Determined to get to the bottom of the map’s origin and what it might tell her about the mysterious plot of land, Nell will have to contend with a construction company owner who disappears, a former Society board member who’s harbored a dark secret her entire life, and a remarkable discovery that may have the dead turning over in their graves . . .

This was the first time I read a book in the "A Museum Mystery" series, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Even though I hadn't read the previous books I had no trouble following along, it can totally be read as a stand alone.

I found myself engrossed in the story and reading it in one sitting.  It was entertaining, full of twists and turns as well as a few surprises.  I even learnt something about Philadelphia and american history.

The Protagonist Nell is a strong, educated woman, and the side characters are realistic too.  The characters are well rounded.  I look forward to reading the next installment in this series.

I requested and received an Advance Reader Copy of this book from Beyond the Page Publishing and NetGalley.  All thoughts and opinions are my OWN.
