Bones Dont Lie-Melinda Leigh (Morgan Dane Series #3) #Book Review


Private investigator Lance Kruger was just a boy when his father vanished twenty-three years ago. Since then he’s lived under the weight of that disappearance—until his father’s car is finally dredged up from the bottom of Grey Lake. It should be a time for closure, except for the skeleton found in the trunk. A missing person case gone cold has become one of murder, and Lance and attorney Morgan Dane must face the deadly past that’s risen to the surface.

For Lance, the investigation yields troubling questions about a man he thought he knew. But memories can play dirty tricks. For Morgan, uncovering each new lie comes with a disquieting fear that someone is out there watching, because someone is killing every witness tied to this decades-old crime. Morgan and Lance follow in the shadows of a relentless killer and walk right into the cross fire.

My Thoughts:

Wow! I have been enjoying the series. Morgan Dane has me up until late at night I refuse to put it down wanting to learn more. I love the suspense, the anticipation the anxiety the thrill of wanting to know what will happen next. If you’ve read this far you’d have known that Lance father was missing since Book 1. In this thought provoking chapter they were tasked with finding out what happened on the night of his disappearance now that evidence turned up showing a murder had took place. Lance grovelled with the thought of considering his Dad was a murderer and who left him only at 10 years old with his mother battling depression and other mental issues.

Lance, Morgan along with Sharp carried readers on a roller coaster ride trying to solve this mystery. Morgan knew she was close to the discovery she was in danger. You’ll be surprised to see what was eventually discovered on that night. I was shocked to find out that someone so close to the case had done the deed.

I also loved the scenes with Sophie, she’s such a sweetheart. Now fully warned up to Lance. Morgan and Lance are getting closer and I want to see if things will get more serious with them now that the girls have accepted Lance and all.

Melinda surely knows how to keep us users in suspense.

Young mother Chelsea Clark leaves the house for a girls’ night out…and vanishes. Her family knows she would never voluntarily leave her two small children. Her desperate husband—also the prime suspect—hires Morgan to find his wife and prove his innocence.

As a single mother, Morgan sympathizes with Chelsea’s family and is determined to find her. She teams up with private investigator Lance Kruger. But the deeper they dig, the deadlier their investigation gets. When Morgan is stalked by a violent predator, everything—and everyone—she holds dear is in grave danger.

Now, Morgan must track down a deranged criminal to protect her own family…but she won’t need to leave home to find him. She’s his next target.

My Thoughts:

Melinda Leigh takes us on another roller coaster ride into this suspense series where a young mother Chelsea Clarke goes missing and the husband Tim Clarke desperate to find her , hires Sharps PI Firm. Morgan and Lance have formed the dynamic duo after solving the major case in Book 1 which was all over the news.

Morgan and Lance used all their tactic to solve the case while occasionally stepping on the Sheriff’s toes. Lance the with the skills he learnt while on the force and Morgan a former prosecutor was very intuitive. The plot took me by surprise when they thought the case was over they had found Chelsea but Morgan still knew that something was an amiss the killer was now hunting her. They came up with a plan which was pretty dangerous but managed not only to solve the kidnapping of the young mother but other missing persons from the town. I loved how the writer maintained the suspense and built on the budding romance that was developing between Lance and Morgan who finally shared their feelings for ea other. I look forward to seeing where their relationship is going and for them solving more mysteries in their little hometown.
