Inherit The Bones

Summary: Secrets and lies can’t stay buried forever in Cedar Valley.

In the summer, hikers and campers pack the small Colorado town’s meadows and fields. And in the winter, skiers and snowboarders take over the mountains. Season by season, year after year, time passes and the lies, like the aspens and evergreens that surround the town, take root and spread deep.

Now, someone has uncovered the lies, and it is his murder that continues a chain of events that began almost forty years ago. Detective Gemma Monroe’s investigation takes her from the seedy grounds of a traveling circus to the powerful homes of those who would control Cedar Valley’s future.

Six-months pregnant, with a partner she can’t trust and colleagues who know more than they’re saying, Gemma tracks a killer who will stop at nothing to keep those secrets buried.


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I’m always on the lookout for a good police detective/Private Investigator book featuring a woman. I really love Sue Grafton’s Kinsey, Ingrid Thoft’s Fina & others. So, I was excited to see this book- it just sounded so great.

However, for me, it was just ok. Gemma has possibilities, but she was mired down in talk of trying to figure out if her boyfriend was cheating on her again or not. We never actually met the boyfriend in this book- he was away for business, but we heard quite a bit about him.


What I liked: 

The cover.

The actual mystery. How Emily Littlejohn weaves together 2 stories and makes a mystery that twists in all the right places!


Bottom line: For me, this was just ok. I have requested the 2nd book in the series to see if I enjoy it more. We’ll see!
