“I adore this series, it has a little bit everything; great characters, a little romance and a thriller/mystery plot line that keeps it all interesting.”
~ Under the Covers

An old car dredged from a lake digs up an old case and fresh pain for private investigator Lance Kruger. It’s his father’s car and it has bones in the boot.  Lance always knew that when his dad went out to the grocery store when he was a child but never came back that something terrible happened to him; he would never have abandoned his family. However, that all seems to come into doubt when the bones in the back of the car turn out to be female. Could his father have murdered some one and than run away? Lance and Morgan dig out the case file and do what they do best; find the truth, no matter how painful it is.

I adore this series, it has a little bit everything; great characters, a little romance and a thriller/mystery plot line that keeps it all interesting. Bones Don’t Lie is no different, only this time the case was something a lot more personal and something we have heard spoken about a lot in the previous two books; Lance’s father disappearing. Finally we get to the bottom of the mystery in this book.

As I am at heart a romance fan, what I loved about this book was the relationship development between Lance and Morgan. Although they are already a couple this book really helped solidify this as the tables are turned and Lance is the one who needs Morgan’s help and support as they investigate his dad’s case. I loved seeing the murder and mayhem broken up by glimpses of their family lives and slowly seeing theirs meld together.

But, it is the thriller story line and the mystery of the body in the boot that intrigued me. I loved seeing this all unfold as multiple suspects are offered up for us readers to consider, as witnesses reveal their lies and skeletons start rattling in closets. I enjoyed trying to figure out the whole story and I even got some of it right.

I really enjoyed this book, Leigh is a fantastic writer who manages to combine her thrillers with a little romance and family life without compromising on either. I highly recommend you go to book one and give this series a try.
