Review: Interred With Their Bones by Jennifer Lee Carrell…

 From the Publisher: Jennifer Lee Carrell’s highly acclaimed debut novel is a brilliant, breathlessly paced literary adventure. The action begins on the eve of the Globe’s production of Hamlet when Shakespeare scholar and theater director Kate Stanley’s eccentric mentor Rosalind Howard gives her a mysterious box, claiming to have made a groundbreaking discovery. Before she can reveal it to Kate, the Globe is burned to the ground and Roz is found dead…murdered precisely in the manner of Hamlet’s father.

Inside the box Kate finds the first piece in a Shakespearean puzzle, setting her on a deadly, high stakes treasure hunt. From London to Harvard to the American West, Kate races to evade a killer and solve a tantalizing string of clues hidden in the words of Shakespeare, which may unlock one of history’s greatest secrets.

Here’s what I thought…

The first thing I want to tell you is that I don’t normally review books like this one. Why? Well it’s just not the type of book I’ve been reading the last couple of years. Mostly I’ve been reading romance, erotica, paranormal, or a combination of the 3. The genre best suited for this book is mystery/historical fiction. I used to read a lot of  both of those genres. What caught my eye and then my attention? The book’s cover art.

I’m usually loathe to compare books or writers but I think if you like Dan Brown’s DaVinci Code, or Lost Symbol this is a book you’d enjoy as well…
