    About “Dana Cameron”

    1. Dana Cameron

      From the author s own website I was born and raised in New England and I live in Massachusetts now, with my husband and benevolent feline overlords Mine is a quiet, fairly ordinary life I love that because it s what saves me from an overdeveloped sense of paranoia and a tendency to expect the worst Combined with an eye for detail and a quirky take on life, these traits give me a vivid internal life, one that s sometimes a little nerve wracking, but very useful for writing mystery and suspense.My interest in archaeology stems from childhood, where my interest in books and the opportunities I had to travel made me begin to think about cultural differences The thing I like best about this work is that it is a real opportunity to try and resurrect individuals from the monolith of history I ve worked on prehistoric and historical sites in the U.S and in Europe, and like to teach, in the field, in museums, in the classroom, and through writing.In my first book, Site Unseen, my protagonist Emma Fielding discovers that archaeologists are trained to ask the same questions that detectives ask who, what, where, when, how, and why When I started on these books, I realized that archaeology is also good training for writing because research, logic, and persistence are so important to both endeavors Naturally, that training worked with the archaeology mysteries and it also helped with my first short story, The Lords of Misrule, a historical mystery which appeared in the anthology, Sugarplums and Scandal But how has it worked when I ve tackled subjects as seemingly diverse as werewolves The Night Things Changed in Wolfsbane and Mistletoe and Swing Shift in Crimes By Moonlight and noir Femme Sole, in Boston Noir Easy it s all about getting into someone else s shoes and walking around for a while Preferably, getting into fictional trouble while you do it Asking what if and thinking about how culture and subcultures in addition to personality shape behavior.

    1. This is the first novel in the series of mysteries regarding archaelogist Emma Fielding.Workign on an archaelogical site dating back from the 1700's , Emma also discovers something else--a very modern corpse. When a second body turns up, Emma must solve a real life puzzle.I did like this book; but the pacing was uneven. Parts were very good; aprts really dragged. Also, I learned at little more about archaelogy than I wanted or needed to.When we do get to the final confrontation, it is well writt [...]

    2. Loved this. Absolutely ate it up with a spoon. Fed my inner desire to work at an archeology site, and my love of spunky female heroines.

    3. I read and enjoyed this one when it first came out and read it again because I wanted to see what changes were made in the Hallmark Movie based on the book. The book is a lot more complex (no big surprise there) and quite a bit darker. Several key relationships have been changed in the movie, in a couple of cases leaving people alive who are killed off in the book and turning at least one villain into a quasi-friend. As always, movies and books are like apples and oranges, and it's possible to e [...]

    4. Love archaeologist Emma Fielding! Started with book 3, liked it so much I must read the entire series. The field has always held fascination for me and I love the detail in her writings on not just that but academia as well. The characters that are her friends are witty and engaging so that you have a sense of already knowing them. Emma herself is headstrong, independent, exacting in her work and a bit of a slob at home. In other words, flawed and believable.First rate mystery! I look forward to [...]

    5. Site Unseen de la señorita Cameron es un verdadero bodrio. El sitio arqueológico al que se refiere el titulo de la novela, es un lugar carente de interés. La investigación de los homicidios no parece tener importancia. Aquí sólo es importante la bola de tonterías que piensa y hace la protagonista Emma. Si la ven, no la compren, no vale la pena.

    6. Emma Fielding is an archeologist on a dig looking for a settlement pre-Jamestown. There are murders and fires and it is a rather complex mystery which was good but not as satisfying to me as some.

    7. The book kept me on my toes. While I guessed the villain pretty early on it was the how and why that kept me guessing and reading late into the night. Now to watch the Hallmark movie hopefully they stayed true to the actual storyline.

    8. Style irritated in places and reduced enjoyment. The plots are excellent, there is great flow, and action! The background of a married archaeology professor is unique. Most characters are full-dimensional. We understand how the elder property owner became her best friend, feel the notoriety of her Grandfather's reputation in the field, there is a workplace nemesis, and a privileged student who frustrates her. Ms. Cameron knows a student's demeanour well! I love her description of one who dismiss [...]

    9. This is a well written book of murder and archeology and a woman's response to multiple tragedies in quick succession.There was perhaps more theorizing that necessary, I always keep saying, "get on with it!". However I couldn't put the book down and finished it in one sitting, all 340 pages of it. Perhaps the characters weren't as fully fleshed as they should have been, as I have no image of any of them as people.The writing kept the story flowing and interesting.I will have to find the rest of [...]

    10. I love mysteries and I love smart women so this book by Dana Cameron was definitely my cup of tea. Cameron's characters are crafted so precisely that by the middle of the book you feel like they are old friends and trusted colleagues. When things go awry you can't help but get involved on a personal level. Emma Fielding isn't that worn out female hero who can go from professor's closet office to superwoman karate star in the flick of a page. She is as real as any woman you might know. She is vul [...]

    11. If you've watch the Hallmark movie based on this book, please please please read the book. It's rare that Hallmark makes a less than stellar adaptation for their mystery series (I'm a huge fan of Aurora Teagarden series) but unfortunately with this one it was a huge miss.When I read the overview of this series, I loved the premise of a female archaeologist who finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery.Overall I found the story to be engaging and the mystery well thought out. Even though I [...]

    12. I picked up this book because Hallmark Channel created a movie based on the story this year. I am glad I did. The story in the book is much better than the movie. Emma is an archeologist who is looking for the oldest settlement in America. She is convinced the settlement was in Maine. While she is out walking along the shore, she discovers a body. Because Augie spent a lot of time drunk, everyone thinks he took his boat out and had an accident. It isn't until other things start happening, that E [...]

    13. Great mysteryThis book is a great mystery. It has an archaeological theme. The main character is Dr. Emma Feilding, an archaeologist, professor, and amateur detective, and pretty realistic and interesting character. She's married, she's smart, and has a job she loves Doin ( and she's very good at it). The mystery happens to start when Emma is out walking on the beach, and discovers the body of a friend, Auggie Brooks. Afterwards certain other events unravel around the site she is excavating, to [...]

    14. I enjoy several other similar series of books, and this one seemed right up my alley. But it didn’t live up to my expectations. It drug on and on without much substance. Emma sticking her nose in things, rather than letting actually qualified people do the investigating, drove me nuts. I don’t know enough about archeology to know about the accuracy in that regard, but I do know her accounting of which bones she broke did not correspond with the body parts she hurt. I think I’ll skip the re [...]

    15. I thought this book was only okay. It's filled with details about the field of archaeology, which I found interesting. The mystery part of it was also decent with several twists and turns and a fair amount of action. While it ended with Dr. Fielding's amazement that a Republican saved her life and leaves the reader on a cliffhanger, I didn't like the cursing and probably won't read other books in the series.

    16. I really enjoyed this. I would have enjoyed it more, if there had been more archaeology and romance in it, but it is what it is. I will be checking out the made for tv movie that came from this. Murder, mystery, ancient artifacts, a smidge of romance who could ask for much more? I liked the author's story telling ability. I was not bored or wishing I could hurry up and finish.I will definitely be checking out her other books.

    17. Solid mystery but I struggled getting into it. The book was good and maybe I struggled because I watched the hallmark movie version before reading but I liked the plot. Just seemed like I did not really feel connected to any of the characters. I wanted it to be great because I loved the movie. I will read the next one to see if it improves since I don't know anything about the story.

    18. An enjoyable mystery!I like Dana Cameron. She’s a good storyteller. This is the first mystery I’ve read of hers. I believe it’s also her first book. She keeps you wanting to turn the pages to find out what happens next. I thought the ending was a bit too predictable, but not so much that I’m complaining. I’ll definitely keep reading the series.

    19. A very good mystery with a little archeology thrown in the mix. Dana Cameron is a talented writer who knows her way around the English language and an archeological dig. * I took one star away because of language. (there was a moderate amount of offensive language by the main character as well as by several other minor characters)

    20. I'm not 100% convinced about this character / series yet, but am willing to give Book 2 a go. I felt like it wasn't a very "tight" read which I can't explain any better than that. It definitely didn't stand out amongst similar in the genre for me.

    21. A decent startWhile this one was not bad, I got the feeling the author was trying to stuff all the mystery/thriller cliches into one book. There were a few places where things just dragged way out. <><

    22. Good Mystery with Archaeology too boot!This mystery kept me reading and had good main character development plus archaeological details that I found interesting and not too difficult to follow. I am glad that it is the first in a series and will definitely read more of them.

    23. For the first half of this book I was so excited. It was well written and interesting -- of course I'm an archaeology buff. Then we put away archaeology and descended into a maelstrom of emotion, irrationality, and melodrama. Very disappointing.

    24. Who has not had fantasies of digging up a new settlement and changing history? But perhaps not having to deal with an inconvenient corpse. One of these heroines who takes independence to an absurd extreme. So a bit irritating in places.

    25. Fun mystery with an archaelogist!I thoroughly enjoyed this first book of the Emma Fielding series. Love that she's an archaelogist, you get to explore her very interesting world. Great plot, interesting characters - I am definitely moving right on to book 2!

    26. The characters were not likable or interesting and the story dragged. I understand why Hallmark rewrote the entire story for the movie. The movie was at least somewhat entertaining; the book was not.

    27. Thrilling and intelligent A truly entertaining and well crafted mystery. Perfect for fans of archaeology, history, and a great murder mystery. A must read.
