ARTIFACTS is the first Faye Longchamp mystery, published in 2011. As far as I remember, I got the Kindle book for free.
The setting is an old plantation along the Florida coast, and the main character, Faye Longchamp, is a keen but penniless archaeologist who has to cut corners all the time to make ends meet.
“Faye Longchamp was digging like a pothunter, and she hated herself for it. Pothunters were a bare notch above grave robbers. They were vultures. Once a pothunter defiled an ancient site, archaeologists could only hope to salvage a fraction of the information it had once held. And information, not artifacts, was the goal of legitimate archaeology.”
I liked the unusual setting and the main character, but to be honest, I think the pace was fairly slow. If you want excitement and speed, this one is not for you. Seeing that it was the first in the series, I may try some of the later volumes, however.
