This second installment of Grave Diggers was more entertaining than the last installment. Hart added a bit more excitement by putting in a touch of adventure in her story with a heroine that is described to be like so many authors I know. This heroine kept this book pretty entertaining.
Miller Darling just received a package about her brother that will send her to follow the tales of King Solomon and his treasure to save him. Being friends with Tess, who is well connected to the Gravediggers, gave Miller the advantage to getting help and protection from Elias. With a background in specialized military, Elias is just the guy to help her. Of course, Tess and Elias have known each other before. In fact, they’ve gotten up close and personal with each other and though the sexual tension between them is high, only now will they get the chance to really let go.
I didn’t plan to continue with this series after rating the last installment at three stars. However, with the heroine being a quirky romance writer and a mention of King Solomon’s treasure, I couldn’t stay away. Hart’s addition of Indiana Jones theme made this story fun, but still felt less of the suspense novel. There were a few exciting scenes that got me turning the pages, but it was Miller who really stole the show.
Miller cracked me up with her antics and her author minded ideas, not to mention smart comebacks. Her relationship with her UPS guy made me laugh and her constant note taking of what she can write about was hilarious.
Elias was equally entertaining. His denial and refusal to commit annoyed me at times, but I understood his reasons. Once he owned up to his feelings, he was uber sweet. Similar to the first book, this hero has Jason Bourne’s sexy persona.
Unfortunately, the ending/epilogue fell a little short for me. No spoiler here, but I thought the time jump could’ve been done better. It felt like there’s information that I missed and it would’ve been nice to know. I read an ARC copy, so it’s possible that the final copy might have been changed or updated. Still, rating this book a little higher than the last installment because Miller is a hoot!

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
