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.
I’ve been reading the Widow’s Island series. The books alternate between the authors and each author has its own main character although the whole series is set in the same world and the main characters are close friends. They are written alternately by Kendra Elliot and Melinda Leigh. Each book in the series are short, novella length. I would read them in order due to the personal relationships.
Now we focus on Tess, who is the sheriff on Widow’s Island, and her latest cases. It is so nice to see the circle of friends and family, law enforcement and medical personnel who work well together to solve problems and help people.
The case involve bones that someone tried to bury on top of a fresh grave. There is a teenager, alone out in the wilderness who has run from his home. There are multiple mysterious men on the island who may be suspects. Tess, with the help of Logan, really does a great job of tracking all leads and handling what happens.
Tess does this while caring for a mother who has dementia, a teen sister, and preparing for her wedding to Logan. She has great support. Logan is a caring and supportive man. I care about these characters and wish them the best.
We are back to Christine Williams narrating the series. I easily slipped into listening and enjoyed her performance. The voices and tones were appropriate. I listened at my usual 1.5x speed.
