Review: The Dark Bones (A Dark Lure #2) by Loreth Anne White



Blurb from Goodreads:
She’s come back to solve the mystery of her father’s death and confront her own dark past.

When Detective Rebecca North left her rural hometown, she vowed never to return. Her father’s apparent suicide has changed that. The official report is that retired cop Noah North shot himself, knocked over a lantern, and set his isolated cabin ablaze. But Rebecca cannot believe he killed himself.

To prove it, she needs the help of Ash Haugen, the man she left behind. But Rebecca and Ash share more than broken hearts. Something darker lies between them, and the investigation is stirring it back to life. Clues lead them to the home of Olivia West and her deeply troubled twelve-year-old daughter, Tori. The child knows more about the murder than anyone can imagine, but she’s too terrified to say a word.

And as a cold-blooded killer resurfaces from the past, Rebecca and Ash begin to fear that their own secrets may be even harder to survive.
My Review:
Loreth Anne White is a queen! I have fallen so in love with her Angie Pallorino series (reviews HERE) and now this series.  She truly excels at thrillers that are multi-faceted and headed up by strong women.  I also love the various Canadian settings she writes about - I am always immediately sucked into her books and this latest is no exception.  You do not need to read the first book in this series to enjoy this one but it would help you understand some of the secondary characters and the setting better. I can't wait for more!

The Dark Bones comes out soon on May 21, 2019, you can purchase HERE!  
"Oh Jesus, Becca." He surged back up to his feet. "I wanted you. I needed you. Touching me. Your hands in my blood, inside my pain, fuck it. Your care-- I wanted your care. Whitney was finally gone. I wanted to drown in you. Just you." Emotion burned back into his eyes.

  1. I haven't heard of this one until now, but it sounds great. I might have to add it to my TBR, but I'll have to check out book one first.

I love this trope, sub-genre, setting: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend

I Love This Trope, Sub-Genre, Setting is a new feature on my blog in which I discuss a trope, sub-genre or setting that I love and tell you about books that are shining examples of said trope, sub-genre or setting.  Feel free to play along and please let me know about your favorite books in this realm and whether you like this trope, sub-genre and/or setting as much as I do! Today I am spotlighting the trope of: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend, which I would define as any book where the heroine either has a crush on or falls for her brother's best friend or her best friend's brother.

I have to confess that I love this trope in nearly all of its iterations!  I have a younger brother so I never got to crush on any of his friends but it's fun reading about that and it's equally as fun as reading about falling for your best friend's brother -- instant sisters!  I know there are a ton of books that I'm missing/haven't read so please let m…
