A Grave Search
Julie Hall is finally adjusting to her new career: locating dead bodies with dowsing rods.
The crime scene is drenched with blood, but the body is nowhere to be found.
When a grieving mother requests Julie’s help tracking the body of her missing daughter, Julie is hesitant. Not only do the circumstances sound disturbing, the job is in her hometown, a place steeped in upsetting memories and unresolved trauma. But her interest is piqued, and she takes the case, knowing she’ll have the support of her FBI agent boyfriend along the way.
Soon, Julie finds herself exactly where she doesn’t want to be—trapped in the dangerous spotlight created to keep the story in the media. And as she digs deeper into the mystery of the young woman’s death, she uncovers secrets about her own past she thought were buried forever.
And don’t miss the first installment in the Bodies of Evidence series. A Grave Calling is available now from Wendy Roberts and Carina Press!
Wow! This series is rockin’ with adrenaline. In this book Julie is trying to start her life anew. After everything that happened 15 months ago who could blame her. Her life seems to be on track with a new house, FBI boyfriend and actually making a business out of her talent. But when a distraught mother asks for her help to find her daughter’s body, things are not always what they seem and the prime suspect is someone from her past.
Can Julie find the missing girl? Can she uncover the truth and deal with the past that seems to be popping back up?
I tell you these books are amazing. They keep you guessing and on the edge of your seat. I was biting my nails and there were definitely some “oh shit” moments! The adventures that Julie goes on are something else. She is a very brave and strong woman. She deals with some really heavy stuff, that a normal person would buckle under that kind of pressure. I am also loving the chemistry between her and Garrett. He is a sexy alpha male who is very protective. It makes me laugh at some of his antics.
In this book though Wendy introduces a new character Tracey. She is a new friend for Julie, where she has no friends. It is a budding new relationship and I hope to see more from Tracey in the next books. She seems to be someone who Julie can use in her life to help her balance the crazy.
We also find out the long asked question, “What really happened to Molly Arsentault?” Julie’s mom.
I am a big fan of Wendy Roberts. I started out reading her books The Ghost Duster Mysteries. Her books have a strong female characters with unique abilities. I like that aspect of her books. This aspect makes for great storylines with wonderful plots that keep the mystery. Her books hold the reader’s attention, flowing smoothly at a steady pace and are highly entertaining.
I am so in love with this series and can not wait to see what adventures Julie gets into next.
