Her Mother’s Grave – Lisa Regan

When two young boys discover human bones buried beneath a tree in a trailer park, Detective Josie Quinn races to join her team at the scene. She used to play in those woods as a child, happier outside and away from her abusive mother, Belinda Rose.

Josie’s past crashes into her present when a rare dental condition confirms the bones belong to a teenage foster-child who was murdered thirty years ago. A girl named Belinda Rose…

Josie hasn’t seen her mother in years but, with an undeniable connection between her mother and the dead girl, does she dare try to track her down?

Just as Josie gets closer to uncovering a secret that will shatter her world forever, another body is uncovered. It’s suddenly clear that someone very close to Josie will stop at nothing to keep the truth buried forever.

As she battles the demons from her past, can Josie stop this killer before another precious life is taken?


My review

I could easily compare this book with a part of the Tour of France. I felt like I started on the top of the Alpe d’Huez and raced downhill taking the 21 hairpin bends without slowing down. That’s how fast paced it was and about how many twists and turns the story had.

The family close to you, you know them inside out, don’t you …?

I have not read the two other books and I regret that I did not know of the author before. One thing is for sure, I will read every story will write in the future. I can’t wait to devour the next part starring Josie Quinn and her team. 5 stars.

Thank you, Lisa Regan, Bookouture and Netgalley.
