Beautiful Sacrifice by Elizabeth Lowell book review

Archaeologist Lina Taylor has devoted her life to studying ancient Mayan artifacts, splitting her time between digs in South America and the classroom teaching college students. But the professor’s structured, studious life is about to spin out of control. Some extremely valuable and important Mayan artifacts have gone missing. Is it fanatics determined to create chaos and usher in annihilation?

Helping out a friend, former Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer Hunter Johnson is determined to recover the missing pieces and he needs Lina’s help. A man used to calling the shots and working alone, he isn’t comfortable letting anyone get close, especially a beautiful and brainy woman like Lina. His gift for reading people tells him there’s a lot going on below that professional exterior, and he’s more than a little curious to probe her depths. Burying herself in her work, Lina’s had little experience handling men, especially one as fascinating and exasperating as the secretive, headstrong Hunter. A devoted archaeologist, she has the skill to excavate those protective layers all the way to his core.

But finding the missing pieces is only the beginning of a mystery that will plunge these unlikely partners into adventure, romance, and danger more thrilling, sensual, and deadly than either of them knows . . .


I read this this weekend and it took me a while to read it. I thought the author did her research and I liked the book but this would not be a book I would ever read ever again. It did entertain me but it could have been better.     

I give this 3 out of 5
