The Burnt Island Burial Ground
by Mindy Quigley
This fast-paced action mystery, with strong developed characters and a story plot that will keep you guessing until the end. I am eagerly waiting to see what will be next for Lindsay.
~Shelley’s Book Case
This is a clean read that is full of drama, history and mystery.
It’s a great detective story, engaging and funny, a perfect mix of action, mystery, romance. The plot is compelling and well developed, the characters are likeable, interesting and easy to relate to.
I really enjoyed The Burnt Island Burial Ground by Mindy Quigley, and recommend it to all fans of cozy mysteries, especially those who like spunky, sassy, strong, Southern heroines. The Burnt Island Burial Ground has earned the top rating of Five Kitties!
Good job by the author. The book rose slowly to a climax, then settled back down nicely. I especially enjoyed the moments where the book became “thriller-like” with a lot of action.

“We hid the body. The money belonged to everyone, but we stole it for ourselves. You have to help me give it back before it’s too late. If I don’t stop this, that money’s gonna drag us all straight down to hell.”
With these words, whispered to hospital chaplain Lindsay Harding as part of a cryptic confession, the stage is set for another intricately-plotted Mount Moriah mystery. All signs point to murder, but no one can find any trace of a body. Lindsay’s sure not all is as it seems, but she’ll need true grit and quick wit to follow a trail back through history to Burnt Island, a remote patch of North Carolina swampland.
Lindsay’s task is complicated by the shifting landscape of her personal life. After pre-wedding jitters jeopardize a relationship that seemed destined to be her best shot at happily-ever-after, Lindsay falls under the spell of a charming stranger. Whether she gets another chance at love will depend on following her heart…and on whether she can keep that heart beating long enough to unlock the mystery of Burnt Island.
