Buried by Kendra Elliot
Buried by Kendra Elliot is the 3rd book in the Bone Secrets series. What a fantastic read.
A little about the series.
The Bone Secrets series, if you haven’t read any of them, are a series of books that don’t follow the same main characters book to book. Bit characters from the first book are main characters in the second, and so on. Book by book, we learn more about the characters, as each has their own story!
So, to that end, Michael Brody was a side character in Hidden, Book 1. As a jealous brat, he was endearing. You could feel the love he had for Lacey Campbell, and the hurt when he saw her with Jack Harper. When he showed up in Buried, as a primary character, I cheered him on as he found love.
A little background.
18 years ago, Michael Brody’s brother Daniel went missing along with a school bus full of other children on their way back from a field trip. Two years later, the sole survivor, Chris Jacobs emerges from the woods, malnourished, injured, dirty, and scared.
Michael sets out to find out what has happened to his brother, and his only lead is Chris, who has secluded himself completely. So Michael finds the next best thing, Chris’s sister Jamie.
Suddenly, a whirlwind of danger descends upon them. “The Tattooed Man” is suddenly hunting them down, as they race against time to find Chris Jacobs, and ultimately find out what happened to Daniel Brody and the other children on the bus.
Buried was fast-paced, heart pounding, and twisted.
If graphic details bother you, you will be happy to know that Kendra Elliot is a writer who can make her readers understand horrific happenings, without the gory, gross details. I know that turns off many readers (though I’m not one of them, I’m okay with details). So, if you like twisty mysteries without grizzle, Kendra’s books may work very well for you.
If you like a little romance with your murder mysteries, Kendra Elliot’s books may also be for you. I’m not typically a romance kind of girl. However, they tie into the story neatly, and I find myself liking the characters, so I enjoy cheering for their love to grow.
Five twisty stars, all the way. I can’t wait to start Book 4, Alone.
