Finding the jewelry that belonged to Samantha out in an orchard pumphouse where teens used to go to carouse has given Cate and Tessa a new lead to their friend’s disappearance. But, in a shocking turn, a seemingly unrelated hit and run death of the town drunk leads them even further along the path to discovery. I just can’t get enough of this series and I was thrilled to be tracking once again with FBI Agent Cate Wilde as she and Tessa hunt the cold trail.
Bred in the Bone is fourth of the Widow’s Island series that build on each other and don’t make good standalones.
Cate was traumatized from her last case gone wrong. She’s physically healed and nearing the time when she needs to report back to duty in Seattle. However, for the first time since she was a kid, leaving Widow’s Island doesn’t feel right. There is Henry and their newfound love, of course. He is the only doctor on the island so he can’t leave. But, she worked so hard for her career even if she knows that she still can’t return to duty because approaching a closed front door out on a visit with Tessa even if its just to inform a man of his son’s death has her panicking. Before she can spend too much time on those thoughts, Sam’s case goes from cold case to quite warm and she is dodged to get to the bottom of it once and for all.
This one got exciting and dang it, I can’t babble because it would spoiler it for folks. Just trust me, that this one takes things up a notch on the surprises and twists. Great action and suspense along with solid friendship and tender romance. What more could you ask for right?
Christine Williams narrated to perfection and is a staple to the joy of experiencing this series. I get lost in a good way in her narration and this was no exception.
Can’t recommend this series enough.
