Bones Under the Ice (1) (A Jhonni Laurent Mystery)

We rated this book:


In Bones Under the Ice, not long after a major blizzard, Sheriff Jhonni Laurent finds the body of a high school senior buried under the snow. Jhonni is sheriff of four counties, most of which are farm country and murder is rare. As she investigates, the bodies begin to pile up, not unlike the snow, which is unfortunate timing, seeing as she’s a month away from re-election. Jhonni will have to solve these murders while also battling small town politics, which consists of a century-old feud between farmers and her chief deputy trying to oust her by any means necessary.

This is the first in the Jhonni Laurent series and it started out perfectly. It’s not a fast-paced thriller, but rather a slow-burn murder mystery. It’s like the start of a beautiful friendship as you get to know Jhonni and those around her. You grow with her as it’s her first murder case and as she pieces things together. I look forward to seeing how each part of Jhonni’s life plays out as well as seeing more of Vern. I highly recommend you add this series to your to-read list.
