Synopsis

Should some secrets stay buried?

For as long as Cassie Hunt can remember her Aunt Aggie has spoken about the forgotten world that exists just below their feet, in the tunnels and catacombs of the Sand House. The story is what inspired Cassie to become an archaeologist.
But Aggie has a secret that she’s buried as deep as the tunnels and when excavation work begins on the site, Cassie is the only one who can help her keep it. With the assistance of her old university friend, Noah Flanagan, she puts into action a plan to honour Aggie’s wishes.
It seems the deeper Noah and Cassie dig, the more shocking the secrets uncovered – and danger is never far away, both above and below the ground …

    A compelling read, a real page turner.

    When Cassie receives an urgent phone call from her sister informing her that her beloved aunt is ill in hospital, she leaves her archaeological dig in sunny Italy and rushes home to rainy Doncaster. Once home she finds her aunt clinging onto life just long enough to tell Cassie a 50-year-old secret and making her promise to achieve what Aggie could never manage.

    The secret is contained in the catacombs that run under her aunt’s home. Cassie uses her expertise as an archaeologist to join the excavation of the catacombs, but her promise means she has to crawl along long dangerous tunnels and enter the crumbling catacombs where there is another danger waiting for her.

    Steeped in atmosphere, two unconnected mysteries and a romance make this an absorbing read.

    I would certainly describe this book as a suspenseful good read. Cassie had a rough childhood in Doncaster, she and her sister were brought up by their aunt Aggie. She is now an archeologist, working in Italy, but gets called back to Yorkshire because her aunt is terminally ill and reveals a secret to Cassie. We are introduced to Noah, who Cassie knew at University, and who is now working on the sandstone tunnels, a male nurse who is not all he seems, and other characters. There is plenty of suspense, a basically true story about the sand tunnels, with a little invention about current excavations (artistic licence), a nice helping of romance, a really moving part (yes, I shed a tear or two), and a satisfactory ending. All things taken in account, I could recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the genre, it’s well worth reading.

    This book opens in sunny Italy and moves to a cold Yorkshire. Cassie’s work on a dig in Herculaneum is her dream, she is rudely awakened to reality by a phone call from home which shatters her dream. Her return to find her aunt seriously ill and wanting Cassie to fulfil her dying wish leads Cassie into a new life. The re-entry of Noah into this life opens more doors than one. This is a good read with an excellent story and a good romance. The story kept me turning the pages and entertained as I am sure it will you.

    A very enjoyable read, well set up, with good sense of conflict for the main character between her profession and her family. The characters were well rounded and believable, and I liked that it didn’t have the usual tone of a thriller, something a bit different both in feel and context.
