Book Review: Bone Box

I like snagging an author and reading all her books, in chronological order. This isn't the case this time! I was desperate for a book. I knew what I wanted to find, more by the author of Message in a Bottle. I'd borrowed a couple of these from my client. However, I couldn't make the dang computer work at the library, having forgotten the author's name. Maybe if I type it here I'll remember! Nicholas Sparks. SIGH.

Anyway, I sauntered by the 'To Be Shelved' cart and found 6 of Kellerman's books. Someone was also binge reading! I picked up one and really enjoyed it. I have two more, on loan, on my night table.

Bone Box

Faye Kellerman | Bestselling Author
It's a good mystery. I like her writing. Her female character, Lazarus, is a strong one. She is prolific. I find good writers get better over time.

There is action and suspense, in addition to the mystery about the bones they found.

But what I found timely was the family (Lazarus and Decker) were hosting Passover meals. I relearned a lot that I had forgotten,  many are celebrating Passover this week.  Kellerman writes of keeping a Kosher house, as well.

About the Book  from Harper Collins

In this thrilling chapter in Faye Kellerman’s bestselling series, Rina Lazarus makes a shocking discovery in the woods of her upstate New York community that leads her husband, police detective Peter Decker, through a series of gruesome, decades old, unsolved murders, pointing to a diabolical, serial killer who’s been hiding in plain sight.

I had quite forgotten about her. She was alright if I recall.

I've read several of Faye Kellerman's mysteries and enjoyed them. Have you read any of her husband's? Jonathan Kellerman. Like you, I love to find an author and read everything of his/hers. Thank you for reviewing!

I haven't read a Fay Kellerman book in a long time. Maybe I should take a break from BC books and read something more relaxing, if you consider crime books relaxing. - Margy

I've read some Jonathan Kellerman but never Faye's work. It's always nice to hear that another series that is available to binge is worth reading. Thanks for the review!

Good info, Barrie! I didn't know. It was a fluke I got this one!!!! Thanks for hosting.

A Passover mystery sounds cool! We call that meal a Seder. Thanks for your review!
