Meet the Author

A long-time writer and reader, loves adventure and mystery. Growing up on Ellis Peters/Edith Pargeter, Elizabeth Peters/Barbara Michaels (and Indiana Jones and Walter Farley), action-based history and mystery pursuits have always driven my imagination.Last Assault on Oak Island is one treasure that has always fascinated me. The Rediscovered series is a collection of other lost treasures history has buried. I'm eager to put forth some of the theories and rumors backed by research and a heavy dose of "maybe..." in the next four books planned.Room of Fire follows the first book, and from there, Dr. Sheldon and Lauren cross into the Middle East, Asia, and more.

    The Money Pit treasure has been out of reach for 200 years. Carlos Sheldon and his student assistant Laura Gates are determined to bring it up out of the hole and show that it wasn’t just a legend after all in Jenn Rekka’s Last Assault on Oak Island. With financial failures by treasure hunters abounding, it is becoming clear that Mahone Bay on Oak Island is home to one of the most extravagant hoaxes in history. However, where one treasure hunter has taken a wrong turn, another finds yet more mysterious discoveries that have been shrouded in myth and legend for two centuries. After finding a British admiral’s wartime journal and discovering new information surrounding the Money Pit treasure, Dr. Sheldon and Lauren might just have found the right path to unraveling the mystery. Will one last stab at the Oak Island treasure reveal the truth or is it nothing more than a legend that has haunted treasure hunters and their backers alike?

    Jenn Rekka has intertwined Last Assault on Oak Island with mystery and suspense enough to keep the reader turning pages and unraveling each set of clues. Each of the characters involved and the way in which they interact with each other as the pieces of the puzzle come together keep the reader engaged all of the way up until the end. Last Assault on Oak Island is a brilliant must-read for those who love suspense and mystery. The book will take you on a wild ride right up to the end.

    Great Story

    I got interested in this saga with a new "reality" show on Discovery Channel where two brothers from Michigan are exploring the triangular swamp for the treasure. Great story and interaction between characters. Needs more editing as there are several grammatical errors but all-in-all a good read.
