Early praise for Buried Lies

"Buried Lies takes the reader on a journey that won't soon be forgotten!" See the entire review by Patricia Reid at

"Just finished the ARC. It had everything I like--a biblio-mystery, an old western novel theme, a treasure hunt, a bit of romance, two wonderful dogs, and plenty of surprise twists. Outstanding!" -- Paul Ziebarth, manager Barnes & Noble, Davenport, IA.

Another early ARC reader, Kaye Barley of Boone, NC, said, "Buried Lies was terrific! An old-fashioned treasure hunt along with a puzzle mystery. I enjoyed it tremendously!"
