Publisher's Summary

Dark secrets surface in the third Widow’s Island novella by number one Wall Street Journal best-selling author Melinda Leigh.

When a body washes up on the state park beach, Deputy Tessa Black’s experience as a former Seattle detective tells her that the death was not an accident. All evidence points to another murder on the remote island.

The victim is a local contractor with a shockingly long list of enemies. The more locals Tessa interviews, the more people she suspects - from the bitter ex-wife and estranged current wife to disgruntled former clients and employees. They all have different reasons to want him dead.

As Tessa’s investigation heats up, arson and a vicious assault convince her the killer is desperate to hide his crime - and that she’d better solve the case before he claims another victim.

Good suspense

This book has an enjoyable setting and enjoyable characters. The suspense is good. The narration is good but not as enjoyable for me as some.

Clean Suspenseful romance

Now I usually like a little steam with my romance but this was still excellent. Melinda Leigh knows how to create a scene and make it come alive in your mind. These books, I feel,should definitely be read in order. It helps to know the history of at least one storyline. I will be reading the next one.

Nice and short

Perfect length for a couple of hikes. These Widows Island stories are very entertaining. They are solved quickly by interesting characters.

Good series

I'm eager to find out what happened to a childhood friend of the main characters. They are getting closer to the answer. I must keep reading this series!

Thrills, Fear, and Finding True Love

As usual, Leigh writes an excellent mystery with clues you really need to watch for if you really want to test your sleuthing skills. Also as usual, Leigh writes a powerful and intense romantic component.

Whisper of Bones

I am enjoying this series of novellas, especially since I am listening to them in audio! This one is about a body that washes up on the beach. Turns out this body was dead for hours prior to being put in the water. Turns out he is a contractor and there are lots of twists and turns and then an arson added in. More insights into Tessa, Logan, Cate and Henry (the local doctor/coroner) and getting closer to knowing what happened to their missing friend Samantha. Definitely looking forward to the next book!

I've been enjoying this series, but

this book tended towards the trite. Still it's a quick listen and moves a little distance along the story arc. I listened to it as part of Kindle Unlimited so I'm not as unhappy as I would have been if I'd paid for it and it was permanently a party of my library. in that case I'd have been tempted to return it.

okay

I did not care for the book it explained to many procedures. Typically murder mystery just no pizazz.
