Publisher's Summary

After a brutal snowstorm in the Cascade Mountains, Chris Jacobs discovers two things he never expected to see: the charred shell of a cabin, and Gianna Trask and her sixteen-year-old daughter huddled in an SUV, having barely escaped from their burning vacation rental.

Still scarred from a childhood ordeal, Chris knows there's something sinister about the scene - it's the stench of burned flesh.

Forced to wait out the blizzard in their rescuer's retreat, medical examiner Gianna Trask wonders if her hidden past has finally caught up with her. When a body is found in the destroyed cabin's ashes and a forest ranger is brutally murdered, both Gianna and Chris must confront their secrets if they want to escape the violent threat lurking outside.

In the fifth book in the Bone Secrets series, Kendra Elliot leads listeners on a dangerous, twisting journey of two lives forever changed by a fiery snowstorm in the mountains.

A bone secret

What didn’t you like about Tanya Eby’s performance?

She is not a good actress for reading. She charging through the story as if she only has five minutes to get it done. No real emotion just reading! I cannot continue with this story. I don't understand why the author wouldn't recognize this.

Any additional comments?

Cannot finish this book!

Murders in the Oregon Cascades!

Kendra Elliot has written another excellent mystery/thriller set in western Oregon! Tanya Eby's narration is superb as always.

This novel is not the type of serial killer book that Elliot usually writes. While the antagonist kills several people it is an effort to reach a specific goal.

I love these books!!

This series will have you binge reading/listening! You always meet characters from earlier books so it’s more enjoyable if you know their stories. Single mom Giana and her teen daughter have moved across the country so she could take the assistant ME position. She decides to spend some quality time with Violet before starting her job. That’s when things go south...their peaceful cabin is set on fire and it’s obvious that someone is after them. Rescue comes in the form of single dad, semi-recluse, Chris...and his adorable dog. As bodies are piling up and secrets revealed, we have to wonder if Chris can keep them safe...he has his own set if secrets. Captivating story that leaves you wanting more.

I am so glad Chris gets his own HEA! Chris, we met him a couple books ago in this series, is really Michael's brother David, and was kidnapped as a child and walked out of the woods two years later with a different identity. Now after a snowstorm in the Cascade mountains he finds a burned cabin and a mother and her teenage daughter in their disabled truck. Taking them back to his home to wait out the storm he has suspicions the mother, Gianna, has been poisoned but not down. Gianna is the newest member of the ME staff but more intriguing is in the cabin was a body she did not know about. This author gives us so many twists and turns and keeps us guessing right up to the end and intermixes a romance between Gianna and Chris which was so good to find out Chris could overcome his past.

Great book! Great voices !!

I’m very critical of narrators because I want to lose myself in an audiobook. I don’t want to hear someone reading, I want to believe the voices of the characters are real and unique and will take me on a journey. Tanya Eby hit every note perfectly, she’s an amazing talent and one of my new favorites. When a well written book is performed by a true talent it’s magic and I’ll be a fan for life.

OK, but not quite as good as previous books

Audible. Also available to borrow ebook/audio via KU. This is one of those books that’s less expensive to buy the ebook & add-on the audio ($6.98 for both at the time of this review).

Chris Jacobs (introduced in book 3, Buried) is at his secluded cabin when he sees a neighboring cabin on fire. He finds Gianna Trask and her teen daughter, Violet, in their vehicle outside the remains. It becomes apparent that Gianna is being targeted and she and Chris (along with Michael & Jamie) work to discover why and keep her safe.

This was a nice HEA for Chris. Unfortunately, something was missing and it didn’t quite wow me the way some of the others did. The pacing was quite slow at times. Perhaps because in an effort to bring readers up to speed on events from Buried there was a LOT of info-dumping from that book. Parts were really good, but other parts felt overly confusing or forced. 3.5 stars.

Tanya Eby was great narrating this, though I do wish Luke Daniels could have been brought back since he narrated Buried.
