A woman is strangled and shot. She was last seen alive at a casino near Santa Fe. Forensic Psychologist Jemimah Hodge is on the case, as is her new boyfriend, Sheriff Rick Romero. The trail has already grown cold when another woman is murdered under similar circumstances. The first dead woman left behind a disgruntled ex-spouse but no other obvious suspects. Gilda Humphreys, the second victim, is another story. First there is her househusband, then there are all her co-workers … It seems no one is shedding a tear for Gilda.
While going through Gilda's field notes, Jemimah discovers that the woman was experiencing a sexual renaissance. Could one of her lovers have killed her? Then there is Tim McCabe's treasure hunt. A wealthy gallery owner and collector, McCabe has buried a chest filled with valuable coins and jewelry and challenged the public to find it. When Gilda wasn't dressing down her co-workers or dallying with lovers, she was searching for McCabe's treasure.
Was it greed that killed Gilda? A scorned lover or vengeful co-worker? With so many suspects and so few clues, Rick and Jemimah face one of the most challenging cases of their careers.
Treasure Among the Shadows is the third book in Jemimah Hodge Murder Mystery series.

Marie Romero Cash pens "Treasure Among the Shadows" in a plot filled with mystery and plenty of twists and turns to keep you interested. This is the first book I've read in this series and wished I read the first two since I'm really not sure if I'm missing anything or if these are each stand alone books in the series. I found the author's characters to be interesting and well developed with some good chemistry. A must read for all murder mystery fans.
I give "Treasure Among the Shadows" a 4 star rating.
