After a brutal snowstorm in the Cascade Mountains, Chris Jacobs discovers two things he never expected to see: the charred shell of a cabin, and Gianna Trask and her sixteen-year-old daughter huddled in an SUV, having barely escaped from their burning vacation rental.

Still scarred from a childhood ordeal, Chris knows there’s something sinister about the scene—it’s the stench of burned flesh.

Forced to wait out the blizzard in their rescuer’s retreat, medical examiner Gianna Trask wonders if her hidden past has finally caught up with her. When a body is found in the destroyed cabin’s ashes and a forest ranger is brutally murdered, both Gianna and Chris must confront their secrets if they want to escape the violent threat lurking outside.

In the fifth book in the Bone Secrets series, Kendra Elliot leads readers on a dangerous, twisting journey of two lives forever changed by a fiery snowstorm in the mountains.

Known by Kendra Elliot

Known by Kendra Elliot is the 5th, and final, book in the Bone Secrets series. If you haven’t read this series yet, let me encourage you to do so. All of the books were four and five stars for me.

They are also available, with audible, for free if you have a Kindle Unlimited account.

The series goes as follows:

Hidden (#1)
Chilled (#2)
Buried (#3)
Alone (#4)
Known (#5)

Kendra Elliot also wrote a novella/short story, Veiled, Bone Secrets #3.5. I whizzed through it but skipped to the ending because I just wasn’t feeling it. So it landed on my DNF pile.

Back to Known!

Welcome back to Chris from Buried, #3. Chris is at his remote cabin in the Cascade Mountains during a brutal snowstorm. During his stay, he discovers Gianna and her 16-year-old daughter, Violet, huddled in an SUV. Having escaped from the harrowing ordeal of their vacation rental cabin burning down, Violet is found nursing her mother, who was violently ill all night.

As we know from Buried, Chris knows what burnt flesh smells like. And there was a strong odor of burnt flesh in that cabin. Low and behold, a charred body was found.

Was someone trying to kill Gianna and Violet? Well, they do see another set of footprints around the side of the house, which they know aren’t theirs or Chris’. And how did a body get in there? As is typical in a Kendra Elliot book, Gianna must face her past to figure out the present.

I really enjoyed Known. While it wasn’t my favorite in the series, it still deserves five stars in its own right. Chris is one of my favorite characters from the series.

Additionally, we got an excellent introduction to new characters, Gianna and Violet. They were very likable characters, whom I enjoyed getting to know. And as always, I enjoyed the budding romance that is another familiar element in Kendra Elliot novels.

Again, if you haven’t read the Bone Secrets series, and you enjoy murder mysteries with a splash of romance, you may very well love these! Five Stars!
