    One thought on “Bet Your Bones”

    1. This is the second book I have read in this series. Both deal with anthropology in different geological locations with history, lore and myths. It is a historical novel in mystery form as she always adds a good deal of information. A tad much, but she is an excellent story teller. I like the way the main character thinks, humor a touch of intrigue, honesty and humor. The way she gathers facts is different in many ways than qualified authorities, but the results are better, other than leaving her [...]

    2. She hemorrhages question marks. It's her primary method of moving the plot forward. Hawaii was nice, but not much more.

    3. Getting kinda tired of reading mysteries but this book is good, got some surprises there. I really love learning about a Hawaiian word Kapu, because I saw it on the bedroom door of Lilo in Disney's Lilo and Stitch, I always thought it keep out, it actually is a heavy part of the Hawaiian culture, Kapu is what is taboo and if you cross it it means death. So of course Lilo puts that sort of a warning on her door. This book mentions a lot about Hawaiian myths and legends. That's what I like about t [...]

    4. It was a good mystery for a while but anticlimactic. By the end when everything has been sorted out, it’s just so boring. I think it was meant to be gripping but it’s not. Not bad but not great

    5. I requested Bet Your Bones by Jeanne Matthews from Poisoned Pen Press through Net Galley.This is the second mystery of a series, but reading the first isn't a prerequisite. I was attracted by the Hawaii setting and the mention of myths. Myths are protagonist Dinah Pelerin's specialty as she studies for her anthropology degree.Her undaunted curiosity (a given for most scientists) is what had Dinah in the Philippines; her deep concern for her best friend Claude Ann draws her to the Big Island. But [...]

    6. Received from Netgalley.Summary: A wedding on the lip of a Hawaiian volcano sounds risky to Dinah Pelerin, the bride’s best friend and maid of honor. The bride, Claude Ann Kemper, has bet her heart that she’s found the right man at last. The groom has gone all in on a real estate deal he believes will set him and his new wife up for life. A group of Native Hawaiians claims that the sacred bones of an ancestral king are buried on the land the groom plans to sell and one of them has vowed do w [...]

    7. 3.5 starsDinah Pelerin, wanna be anthropologist, takes a break from an internship in the Philippines to once again stand as maid of honor for her best friend Claude Ann. Dinah has reservations about Claudy’s upcoming nuptials to Xander just as she did about Claudy’s previous wedding. When a theft and murder occurs we play detective right along with Dinah as she tries to suss out a killer. We learn a bit more about Dinah’s past in the follow up to BONES OF CONTENTION but in the context of h [...]

    8. Bet Your Bones was well written and a good read. I loved the setting of Hawaiiwho doesn't love Hawaii! I did find the main character Dinah to be flaky. Flaky in that she seemed to be drifting around and not settling on a career path. And that she even went to Claude Anne's wedding in Hawaii in the first place when she and Claude Anne had a falling out years ago. Besides being flaky, Dinah is a student of cultural anthropology. This allowed for the recounting of a number of very interesting Hawai [...]

    9. In Matthews’ mystery novel, budding anthropologist Dinah Pekerin goes to Hawaii for her best friend’s wedding. The wedding is too held on the rim of a volcano, the same volcano that the fiancé is involved in a controversial land development deal over. The myths and legends fascinate Dinah but the locals are upset and protesting the desecration of sacred burial grounds. When a murder takes place, Dinah follows a trail of blackmail, secrets, and risky business all the while walking a thin lin [...]

    10. Bet Your Bones is a fun mystery. Anthropologist/amateur sleuth Dinah Pelerin’s second adventure takes place in Hawaii, where her long-time friend’s wedding is disrupted by many interesting complications, not the least of which is murder. Author Jeanne Matthews does a great job weaving Hawaiian myths and local flavor into the plot. The story’s pacing is atypical because the main “dead body” arrives well into the book, but I thought this allowed for the characters to be more fully develo [...]

    11. Aspiring anthropologist Dinah Pelerin flies to Hawaii to act as maid of honor--for the second time--to her childhood friend Claude Ann, trying to repress her unease that Claude is marrying an older man, Xander, whom she met only weeks before. Xander is closing a big real estate deal, and there are protestors who oppose his development plan. Are they behind the ugly trick played on Claude Ann at the celebratory party? The wedding party leaves Oahu for the Big Island, where the ceremony is schedul [...]

    12. I like these stories and the characters but, as I've said before, the author is a little too caught up in the myths that she inserts into the storyline. I know that this is her "niche," but just a little into to myths would be fine and appropriate -- I think she just puts too much of it into her books and it takes away a little for me (resulting in three stars instead of four). I often find myself skipping forward.

    13. Nice 2nd story in the Dinah Pelerin series. Due to the background of the protagonist being cultural anthropology, each book deals with a different area of the world and introduces us to some of the myths and legends of the indigenous people. Throw in a murder to two for solving and the books are quite fun to read.

    14. A nice mystery by Jeanne Matthews, set in Hawaii, and giving lots of interesting insights into Hawaiian myths and legends, and a murder at a wedding to which our hero has been invited as best maid. I'd have said there were too many characters to keep tabs on, but it was good anyway.

    15. Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Wonderful writing, great wit, well drawn characters and a tight plot. Highly recommend anything Jeanne Matthews writes. She's a high quality writer who always entertains.

    16. I liked this sequel a bit more than the first on the series. I felt like the mystery was a little more solid. I also came to like Dinah a lot more as a character. I look forward to reading the next one.
