“If you want something short but which somehow still manages to pack in a good mystery alongside a little romance, then this is a great place to start.”
~ Under the Covers

Whisper of Bones by Melinda Leigh and Bred in the Bone by Kendra Elliot are book 3 and 4 in the Widow’s Island series of novellas. Set on a small island, each novellas has its own self contained mystery whilst best friends since childhood Deputy Tessa Black (penned by Leigh) and FBI special agent Cate Wilde (penned by Elliot) look for their friend Samantha who went missing, now presumed dead, when they were all teenagers.

I decided to review these together, for a couple of reasons; they’re both really short – or at least felt that way, i read them very quickly – and they are so well entwined with one mystery leading straight into another, I am unsure how you could pick one up without immediately diving for the next one. If I had to pick the one I liked the most, it would be Bred in the Bone; however, Elliot had a much meatier subject…we finally find out what happened to Samantha (don’t worry I won’t give away any spoilers!). It was so good. Was I expecting the events that happened? Maybe, but that didn’t detract from my enjoyment of the execution of the book.

Both these novellas had me utterly gripped, Melinda Leigh and Kendra Elliot have complimentary styles and this series of novellas has, so far worked really. If you want something short but which somehow still manages to pack in a good mystery alongside a little romance, then this is a great place to start.spacer

I was startled that we were getting the deets on Samantha already, but loved how it worked out. Agreed. They do well in a tag team.

I’m really hoping these get released in paperback!
