The Unquiet Bones: A Novel

We rated this book:


A construction crew is preparing to move an old chapel to a new location when they discover the remains of a young woman. Sergeant Jane Munro, still reeling from the disappearance of her fiancé, is assigned the case. The body appears to belong to a teen who disappeared almost fifty years ago. As Jane works the case, she’ll discover that The Unquiet Bones of Annalise have many secrets to tell, some much darker than anyone could have guessed.

This was a very well-written, engaging story. The only thing I didn’t like was Jane’s interactions with people on a personal level. She felt like two different characters in one person, which made her seem disjointed. The multiple points of view were interesting and gave you a picture of how everyone saw this life-changing event. You can clearly see the devastation that one lie can bring.

While the case is solved at the end of the story, there seems to be room for more. I’m not sure if the author is planning a series, but there is definitely room to keep going. I would be interested in seeing what other cold cases Jane can solve. Overall, a thought-provoking cold-case mystery.
