For the past seven years, Jeanette has traveled halfway around the world for Tom because of his lifelong obsession with relics. When Tom deleted his social media accounts and set an out-of-office automatic reply to his emails, Jeanette went looking for him. Her search begins in Kinsale where Tom rented a guesthouse from Conlin. Here she meets Conlin and his daughter, Saoirse, and finds out that they last saw Tom a month ago. She had a nagging feeling that Conlin knew more than he divulged. In the pub, Michael approached her and told her that shady characters had taken an interest in Tom and his work. Now she firmly believes Tom had discovered something valuable and disappeared to keep Conlin and his daughter safe. This is where Jeanette, Conlin, and Saoirse's adventure begins in search of Tom in The Mystery Stone by Victoria Marswell.
The Mystery Stone by Victoria Marswell begins when Jeanette and Tom find a drawing of an ancient relic in Jack’s attic. Tom told Jack and Jeanette he was going to be a world-famous archaeologist and would discover more than this one stone. The characters were well developed, and I could relate to them. Jeanette and Tom are siblings and she is always going out of her way to rescue Tom. I was anxious to know what was going to happen when they found Tom and the stone; the suspense was killing me. The superstitions and beliefs around the ancient relics are very interesting. I would never have guessed what the relics were needed for in my wildest dreams. Victoria knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat from the beginning until the end.
