**XENA CORE (THE) by Wishes - [M/J]
The spunky archeologist and her devoted Southern belle of a partner are back in this intriguing mystery which begins as a simple effort to reunite a daughter with her long-lost mother. After Janice receives a letter from the mother she hasn't seen in over a decade, Mel puts aside some personal needs of her own to accompany her friend to England intent on encouraging a reconciliation between mother and daughter. Janice's suspicion that she was summoned for more than just a family reunion soon prove correct, however, as the two find themselves right in the middle of a complicated mystery involving photographs, stolen artifacts, extortion and secrets dating back to Janice's painful childhood. Through it all the two women's friendship acts as a source of strength and security much as it did for their ancestors - keeping them steadfastedly by each others' side in the face of both known and unknown dangers. Featuring Wishes' distinctive combination of great writing and well-developed characters, this is a worthy sequel to Wishes' first Mel/Janice story, THE GABRIELLE STELE.
