When former FBI agent Cate Wilde moves back to Widow’s Island, she envisions a simpler life than the one she had in law enforcement. But Cate’s past has a habit of catching up with her. When she receives a mysterious package containing a child’s mandible, she finds herself thrust back into action.

The mandible leads Cate to an unsolved case she worked seven years ago—the kidnapping of a three-year-old girl. At the time, Cate suspected the girl was kidnapped by her overprotective father. But after they both vanished, the case went cold.

At the urging of the girl’s mother, Cate dives back into the case and learns her prime suspect may still be a threat. Armed with new clues and a fresh perspective, Cate must confront the possibility that the kidnapper is poised to strike again. But can she save his new child from the same fate before it’s too late?

I read the first 4 books in this Widow’s Island series through Kindle Unlimited.  They are written alternately by Kendra Eliot and Melinda Leigh.  Each book in the series are short, novella length.   I would read them in order due to the personal relationships.

In previous books, Cate is an FBI agent who is injured and comes back to the island to stay with her grandma while she recuperates.  While she is there, she gets involved with a new case on the island.  She is on leave but decides to stay on the island to run the bakery / bookshop with her grandma and her new boyfriend, the island doctor.

Cate receives a new lead from an old case of child abduction, where she was the lead.  The case was not solved and she is unhappy with that.  The new lead throws her back into the case, even though she is no longer working for the FBI because the family wants her and trusts her.

The Lost Bones is dark and suspenseful.  Cate puts herself in real danger but is determined to save the child.  Henry supports and helps her like the good guy he is.   Tessa and Logan also get in on the action.  I really felt this one and wonder if Cate can really stay totally out of FBI work.  She has a great mind and instincts for it.

Narration:

Jane Oppenheimer has taken over for Christine Williams in narrating the series.   I enjoyed her performance and felt her voices were appropriate.  I listened at my usual 1.5x speed.
