“IN HER BONES was a captivating page turner.”
~ Under the Covers
I was so excited to read this book and I’m not really sure why. Well, I do. I love the topic of exploring the family members of known serial killers and how their lives were before things came to light, also the aftermath. That was my main interest in this book. But also, I wanted to try Kate Moretti again. My first read by her was good, even if it didn’t blow me away, and I wanted more.
IN HER BONES was a captivating page turner. Alluring even. I kept reading with morbid fascination and I loved exploring the wonderfully complex mind of Edie Beckett. She’s developed an unhealthy obsession with the lives of the survivors of her mothers’ victims. She also fears becoming like her most of all. And then she finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation that quite frankly points to her as the prime suspect, and she can’t remember a lot about the night in question.
This book kept me turning the pages, questioning motives, suspecting people, developing theories. I thoroughly enjoyed myself! I didn’t want to put it down. And through it all, I really liked our main protagonist. Even though my theories changed, I think there came a point about halfway through where I knew who the culprit would be. And I had a one track mind from there. I was right, but that still didn’t take away from my enjoyment and I still liked the execution. Was it a bit easy in the end? Maybe. But it didn’t take away from the fun ride this had been.
I highly recommend this one for fans of a good mystery and just really riveting writing. With a strong yet broken female protagonist you’ll be rooting for, and even a nicely placed hint of romance, I couldn’t have asked for more. I’m now anxious to read more from this author!
