Review: Medallion of Murder by BR Myers

Medallion of Murder (Nefertari Hughes Mystery, #3)
Synopsis
Still struggling with nightmares from the past summer, Terry tries to bury her secret guilt and enjoy her family’s first Christmas in Devonshire. But when a murdered man is found with a postcard addressed to her, Terry fears the repercussions from that fateful night in Egypt are becoming a reality.

After she receives a coded message from Awad, Terry and her best friend Maude are thrown into the hunt for a lost medallion, an artifact that possesses a great power—and a gruesome destiny. As each clue leads to more disturbing truths (and bodies), Terry begins to suspect she’s the real target of the search. When Awad goes missing, she becomes certain the Illuminati are involved, and has no choice but to risk losing the thing she cherishes the most to get him back.

But Terry will soon discover the secrets of the tomb cannot be erased by distance or power, because the ghosts of her past are closing in quickly… and this time, they refuse to stay buried.
Review

The mystery continues in Nefertari Hughes Mystery #3. As I've read and loved both book one and two in this series, I've been looking forward to reading this one. It's just as intriguing and engaging as first two books has been. I already love all the characters, especially Terry. Even with her super-human abilities she is still a teenager and simply trying to make the best choices she can. Her father doesn't always agree with her and he isn't happy with her carrier choice either. But this is something Terry needs to figure out on her own. She is lucky to have some amazing friends who are always there to support her. With their help she is able to get through almost everything in her life...

Unfortunately, her nightmares are something she needs to deal with alone. The past is definitely coming back to haunt her. And when Awad went missing after leaving her random clues, there is no way she isn't going to look for him. But will they be able to uncover the truth before it's too late and also what kind of sacrifices will they be making this time?

One thing is clear though, things are not always as they seem and past cannot remain buried for long.

I loved it! It took me a while to get into the story as I had actually forgotten most of the story (ops!), but once I did there was no putting down this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend to all mystery lovers, especially those who enjoy touch of myth and intrigue along with a good adventure in their books.

P.S. I received a complimentary copy of this book via NetGalley.
