Book Review: "Quicksand" by Gigi Pandian

"Quicksand" by Gigi Pandian is the latest mystery that I've been devouring. It's official publishing date comes up in a few days, March 10, 2015. This is the second Gigi Pandian book I've read in the last few months and I am certainly not disappointed with this selection. Read the other review here... ("The Accidental Alchemist").

This latest offering (volume 3) from Gigi Pandian continues her Jaya Jones series. Our main character is aptly described as a "female Indiana Jones". She is an historian working as a professor in a San Francisco University but she's certainly always ready for any treasure hunt that has her delving into interesting artifacts, historical relics and mysterious clues. I enjoyed the ease that the author writes about historical situations, the reader can learn a little something without being overwhelmed with superfluous details that would weigh down the book.

In "Quicksand" Jaya has just started the University term and she's thrilled to find her students interested in what she's teaching them. This is why our heroine feels torn when she gets a letter and a plane ticket in the mail ostensibly from her newest love interest. Jaya loves teaching but who could turn down a free trip to Paris especially when she'd love to reconnect with Lane, the man who sent the ticket. When Jones gives in and gets on the plane she inadvertently steps into a complicated and dangerous situation that just might ruin her career.

"Quicksand" was a fun and interesting read that runs along at a good paste and keeps the reader guessing as to how the mystery will all end. If the two books I've read by this author are any indication of her usual prowess, I would have to highly recommend any book Gigi Pandian writes. They're fun and easy to read, making them a good selection between heavier mysteries. Why not try this selection, it stands alone well, not requiring the reader to have indulged in the two previous selections in the Jaya Jones series. 
Best,
