Close to the Bone Reviews
Really enjoyed the book! My only complaint- I wish it was longer!!! Loved the story, characters and writing style. I enjoyed getting to know the characters and can't wait until Cate and Tessa start looking into what happened to their best friend.

FBI Special Agent Cate Wilde is summoned back home to a remote island in the Pacific Northwest (Widow's Island) because a teenager's skeletal remains have been found on an island nearby (Ruby's Island). Also on the case is Cate's old friend, county deputy Tessa Black. While they try to solve the case they are reminded of their good friend (Samantha) who vanished twenty years ago and who was never found, and the similarities in this case to that case.
This was a very captivating story/novella. It ...more
Kendra Elliot and Melinda Leigh are regular collaborators.
There must be a dozen books in the Rogue ... series. Most of them are around 100 pages so they're a long way from weighty tomes.
They've put that series to bed and have returned with the Widow's Island series. Set on an island loosely based on San Juan and the surrounding islands in Washington State it follows an FBI agent on the island to recover from a gun shot wound and a police officer. While the authors do share characters, Kendra E ...more
Nice setting and premise but the mystery was wrapped up quickly with no real investigation. An OK read but not the best.
What a great start to what I'm sure will be a fabulous new series! As always Kendra didn't disappoint with this excellent novella. The characters are wonderful and the storyline is beyond superb. This little novella has everything you can possibly want in a mystery/thriller. My only complaint is that it's not long enough. I would love for this series to be full length novels. It's just so damn good. But what do you expect it's Kendra freaking Elliot! I'm so, so excited for this series and to see ...more
Fast read, good story line, just wish it was longer - not a fan of novellas, but this one was pretty good. The characters are likeable for the most part. A small town where everyone knows your name and business - how irritating is that! Enough of the back story is given on the main characters to keep your interest. The story does wrap up mostly, but still leaves you wanting more in the next installment, which I hope is a full novel.

FTC DISCLAIMER: I RECEIVED AN E-ARC FROM THE PUBLISHER THROUGH NET GALLEY. I VOLUNTARILY OFFER MY HONEST REVIEW OF THE BOOK, THOUGH IT IS NOT EXPECTED OF ME! RECEIPT OF THIS BOOK IN THIS MANNER DOES NOT AFFECT MY OPINION OF THE BOOK OR THE CONTENT OF MY REVIEW!
I've read several of the author's works, but none of the ones that she's "co-wrote" with Melinda Leigh. That leaves me feeling a little lost sometimes when reading their works, but this book did a good job of filling in some blanks for me! ...more
I've been enjoying Elliot's FBI series, Mercy Kilpatrick and was curious about her Rogue River series of novellas written with author Melinda Leigh. So when I got the chance to review this new series by them I jumped in. I am so thrilled that I did. Right now there are four books slated; Close to the Bone, A Bone to Pick, Whisper of Bones, and Bred in the Bone. They are all available in KU, Kindle, and it looks like Audible.
In Close to the Bone, FBI Special Agent Cate Wilde has returned to her c ...more
