Set on Widow’s Island off the Pacific Northwest. Close to the Bone by Kendra Elliot is the first of four scheduled novellas. Each book contains a murder-mystery and there is an overall arc about a missing person from twenty years ago. From the characters to the island history I quickly slipped into this series.
Tempted by Love is the third novel in the romantic suspense series, Montana Heat by Jennifer Ryan. A best friend(s) little sister trope, a hit and run and plenty of danger made Tempted by Love a page-turner.
A Merciful Secret by Kendra Elliot is the third book of the series. Set in Oregon, it features an FBI Agent who grew up in a survivalist household. Mercy, the FBI and Police Chief Truman Daly, investigate the murder of an old woman rumored to be a witch.
A Merciful Truth by Kendra Elliot is the second novel in the Mercy Kilpatrick series featuring an FBI Agent in Bend, Oregon. Family, fires and growth made for an interesting case as we get to know the players and work to solve a mystery that has left police wives widowed.
Pale as Death by Heather Graham is part of the Krewe of Hunters series, but contains a standalone case and romance. Once again Luke Daniels narrates as LAPD detective Sophie Manning hunts down a killer who seems to echo the infamous Black Dahlia Killer. Bruce McFadden, a consultant for the FBI steps in to help. Sizzling chemistry, murder, and ghosts delivered another fantastic case.
Author, Anne Frasier, reunites readers with Detective Jude Fontaine in her newest novel The Body Counter. I soon found myself pulled into this suspenseful murder mystery.
