The Bones She Buried – Lisa Regan


I was fortunate to receive this book as an Advance Reader Copy from Netgalley, in exchange for an objective review.

Detective Josie Quinn is frantically attempting to bake a dessert in hopes of impressing boyfriend Noah Fraley’s mother, but all attempts are in the rash as Noah arrives to pick her up for their evening. Fretting about arriving empty handed, they arrive at the house only to find the front door ajar, the home ransacked, and no signs of Colette, Noah’s mom. As they search the house, they spot her outside on the ground by the garden, with no pulse to be found.
Starting CPR, Josie quickly realizes that Colette’s death was no accident – her mouth and throat are packed with soil from the garden.

Devastated by the turn of events, Noah withdraws, while Josie goes into ‘cop’ mode – determined to find justice for Colette – but who would want her dead, and why? And what were they looking for inside the home? Her own search of the home yields a clue – a small bag containing three strange objects; a belt buckle, an arrowhead & a flash drive, labelled Brant.

As Josie and fellow Detective Gretchen Palmer identify the recipient of the flash drive, they discover that he had his brother disappeared under questionable circumstances. Then the Brant brothers surviving sibling is killed, and her home razed…but what is it that the killer trying to hide?? As Josie frantically searches for answers, a killer will do anything to keep secrets hidden – and he’s much closer than anyone imagines…

Another great read by Lisa Regan featuring Detective Josie Quinn, and as usual, it was hard to put this book down! The storyline hooked me from the start and kept me reading well into the night! A fabulous, ‘lighter ’series to get your ‘mystery’ on…looking forward to many more Josei stories from Ms. Regan.

Hi there! I am Mel and I love to read!! My favorite genres are typically mystery/thriller, adventure/suspense and occasionally chick lit/romance stories (when the mystery/thrillers get to be too much, which isn't too often!) I have just started to write reviews for Amazon, Goodreads and this blog, although I am a novice to blogging, so THIS is a work in progress - as you can see the reviews are numerous and the true blogs are few - I'll hopefully be improving on that as time goes on!! I'm looking to network, give some newer authors some exposure and to perhaps explore myself a bit in this whole process!! I am a critical care turned CDI nurse, recently transplanted to coastal Florida, from New England. (Would love to assist with medical/hospital verbiage/scenes for authors!) I love a great cup (or pot) of coffee, day trips, visiting state parks and other nature made places, and exploring/photographing wildlife. And birds...I am a HUGE bird/nature nerd!! Thanks for stopping by! :)
