I didn't find Lovely in Her Bones appealing, as other reviewers did. There's no I-told-you-so English professor in it (see Bimbos of the Death Sun), so that's a plus, but a couple of the characters do relate information a little pedantically, which makes it sound like the author looked it up to make it seem like she knew what she was writing about. Plus, the book is supposed to be humorous, and I didn't find it so. Maybe it's just a different type of humor that I don't recognize as funny. Tony Hillerman's blurb on the cover refers to "sardonic wit". The author even uses the word "sardonic", but in a way I don't find correct. Plus, the way she described whisking eggs was so wrong I can't help but wonder if she's never scrambled an egg in her life. I'm ignorant of medicinal plants and herbal remedies, so McCrumb could have made up whatever she wanted about that, but I'll stumble over commonplace things described incorrectly. Even worse, the protagonist turned out to be one of those "too stupid to live" characters. "Hey, I think I'll go confront the person I think is the murderer. No, I don't want anyone to go with me, thanks. Why, yes, even though I think you're a murderer, I'll have a drink, thanks. Gosh, this drink tastes bad; it must be those special herbs you brewed it with; I'll drink all of it anyway." Alas, she was rescued just in time by her friends, so the series continues. Needless to say, I won't.

I read this book quickly, in just a few hours. I have read several books by Sharyn McCrumb. This was not my favorite, but it was still a good read. I found my self distracted by the dated references to technology. The characters were constantly searching for a phone, and having to drive to different locations to find one. In a time when everyone has cel phones, this seemed old fashioned. Also the computer was using floppy discs. I know for the time it was written, it was probably cutting edge technology. But the book is over 20 years old.

The heroine Elizabeth is likable, but seems a little too eager to confront the murderer without thinking it through. She was also very insecure in her relationship with Milo. I was also disappointed in Milo, because he showed no faith in Elizabeth's work. Still, the mystery was interesting. It was set on an archeological dig, which I always find fascinating. I also learned a little about the Cherokees that I didn't know before. ( )

This is an enjoyable mystery with a surprise villain, Another in the Elizabeth McPherson series, this is a quick read with engaging characters, an interesting setting, and a couple of grisly murders to spice things up. ( )
