Still, she is shocked when a skeleton dressed in its Sunday best falls out of a packing crate that had been stored in a kudzu-covered shed on her grandfather's farm for more than sixty years. When other crates are discovered, each containing a stash of valuable artifacts, Lindsay begins to wonder.

As Lindsay struggles with these troubling questions, she helps a local private investigator locate the wooded grave of Shirley Foster, a missing faculty member. Lindsay is sucked into the investigation, which leads to more questions that answers. Why did Shirley Foster lie to the world about her life? Who wanted her dead? Secrets and lies loom large in Lindsay's life, both professional and personal, as she struggles to find solutions to the mysteries. When artifacts disappear from the university and she and her students are threatened, the stakes are raised. With her job, her reputation, and her life on the line, Lindsay must find a thief and a killer before the police assume she is ultimately responsible....

    I enjoyed this book more than her last one in this series. Great story line, lots of suspense and fingers pointed everywhere. We get to meet Lindsay's brother "Sinjin", a smoke jumper - great mix, hope he appears in the next 2 books at some point.Lindsay's contract with the university is due to be signed again or will it. What she would really like is tenure, but the way things are going, that may be out of reach and/or impossible.2 thumbs up and 4 stars - (a bit of a cliff hanger and a TSTL moment kept this book at 4 stars).

    This is one of those archaeology mysteries. I enjoy this series but I think there may only be one more in this series to read. I think she moved on to another series. But I like the Lindsay Chamberlain character. She can't stay out of trouble. Here, her half-brother Sinjin comes to call. Archaeological finds that her grandfather made get sent to her. A skeleton shows up. The finds get stolen and the finger is pointed at her. Plus, she loses her job. So Lindsay is in trouble throughout the whole thing.I find them pretty entertaining.

    The cover art is a reflection of the boring drawing room mystery that is Dressed to Die. Lindsay needs a new well, tenure and the strength to not rehash the few details the reader receives to death. Connor needs to learn how not to telegraph the bad guy.

    Up to authors best standardExciting, fast moving, with interesting characterization. People were as interesting as the plot! A bit preposterous, as usual, but I look forward to reading the rest of the series

    Lindsay Chamberlain never invites danger into her life; it just happens upon her frequently like an unwanted guest. In her third adventure, Dressed to Die, Lindsay is in danger...of losing her job at the University of Georgia's Archaeology Department due to a merger with another department. If that were not enough to worry her, a cache of priceless artifacts delivered to her by her father is stolen, and all eyes are on Lindsay. Oh, did I mention that in the midst of all this, Lindsay also becomes involved in the murder case of a long-missing UGA professor whose skeleton is recently found? Friends and strangers linked to Lindsay are either injured or killed trying to help, and Lindsay must put together all of the strewn puzzle pieces before she is next on the hit list.This series gets better with each book. No contrived plotlines or dialogue here, no bones about it.

    In this third book with anthropology professor, Lindsay Chamberlain, we find a complex mix of academic politics, a long-ago murder, a lot of bones, and a number of complicated clues and information that are gradually revealed to be inter-related. Lindsay persists in asking questions (and she's very good at it) and getting more immersed in the murder of woman and fellow professor.Her brother comes to visit as well and their relationship takes on a stronger and endearing texture. These books have a lot of great information about archaeology and anthropology as well as other things like chemistry, weaving, dancing, and Georgia/Kentucky history. It's a very satisfying story with good strong, complicated far-from-perfect characters. Edgy suspense and great plot.

    So this wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great. It's still a generally enjoyable whodunnit tho. My main feeling from start to finish was "The lady doth protest too much". Lindsay spent far too much time on how much she didn't want to be involved / solve the mystery / be a detective etc. etc. It was really wearing thin by the end. And, while there were no caves in this book, there were other confined spaces (am beginning to think writing may be Beverly Connor's attempt to somehow overcome extreme claustrophobia).There were, really, only 2 main contenders as The Bad Guy from the start and one of them was it. So although it strings you along a while and I wasn't really sure till I was told exactly which of the 2 it was, it wasn't a huge surprise.

    Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books...1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.4 stars... I really enjoyed this book and will definitely be on the look out to pick up more from the series/author.5 stars... I loved this book! It has earned a permanent home in my collection and I'll be picking up the rest of the series and other books from the author ASAP.

    Forensic anthropologist, Lindsay Chamberlain, is asked to help identify skeletal remains thought to be those of a missing University faculty member.Meanwhile, skeletal remains wearing a shirt and tie along with other valuable artifacts have been found on her grandfather’s property drawing Lindsay into solving this personal mystery.The reading group rated this book 3.Some of the group couldn’t get into this book but those who finished reading it just loved it! They didn’t have much to say about this book after they answered my questions. No more CSI type books!!!!

    Ik kwam dit boek tegen op mijn ereader en wist niet meer zeker of ik hem nu al had gelezen of niet. Dus heb ik hem maar even gelezen. En ik vond het wel een lekker tussendoortje. Pas aan het eind kwam het mij een beetje bekend voor dus ik ben blij dat ik hem wel heb uitgelezen, nu staat hij in ieder geval in mijn leeslijst en weet ik voor in de toekomst dat ik dit boek dus wel heb gelezen.

    Sufficiently complex to carry a rather lengthy mystery. I enjoyed having multiple unknowns to ponder. Working the archaeology into the story numerous times makes it a winner, in my opinion. Good series so far.

    This series just keeps getting better. This offered an education in University politics too, which was fun. The mystery was delightful with archaeology, history, myth all adding the seasoning needed to make this a great read!

    In this story, the main character, Lindsay, wonders if her grandfather had been a thief, looter, or maybe a murderer. Since my relatives had been all of the above, I enjoyed reading how Lindsay tangles with her fears. I enjoyed the book.

    I enjoyed this addition to the series. I liked Sinjin's character and hope to see him again. All the plot lines worked well with one another in this tale.

    I really enjoyed reading this book. I never thought I would find archaeological mysteries interesting. This one made me read the rest of the Lindsay Chamberlain series.
