A frantic chase to catch a grave robber reveals a startling discovery in this tenth installment of the Widow’s Island novella series by Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melinda Leigh.
Deputy Tessa Black spots a man disturbing a grave in the local cemetery and gives chase. But when Tessa catches him, she learns that the ghoulish trespasser wasn’t robbing graves; he was burying a box of bones.
With the help of her fiancé, park ranger Logan Wilde, Tessa discovers that the remains belong to a missing teenager from a nearby island. After the girl disappeared nine months ago, police labeled her a runaway. Now, though, it’s clear the teenager was murdered.
When the only witness is an uncooperative teenager, Tessa and Logan must find the killer before the boy becomes the next target.
This was a gripping, twisty thriller and is the tenth book of the Widow Island series. Although I have not read any of the series, this actually hooked me into the story from the beginning till the end. Since this is a novella, this was a quick read as well. Overall a gripping thriller worth four stars.
Many thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the ARC. The review is based on my honest opinion only.
