Review – A Bone to Pick (Widow’s Island #2)

A Bone to Pick (Widow's Island #2)
By: Melinda Leigh
Release Date: October 30, 2018
Publisher: Montlake Romance
Series: Widow's Island

As we return to Widow’s Island I have to say that while it was interesting that two authors were writing this series I found it easy to transition from Kendra Elliot to Melinda Leigh. Their styles are similar enough that I wasn’t completely thrown off by the change of author and I can only imagine the intense process they went through to accomplish this series. I’m always impressed when authors co-write books and series.

Again, as is the pattern with this series it was a quick read (only 101 pages) but still Melinda Leigh was able to drive the series forward with the limited pages.

This book focuses on Tessa more than Cate and part of me just might like Tessa a bit more than Cate. However, I’m only two books into the series so that could change over time.

In order to care for her sick mother Tessa had returned to the island after making detective in the Seattle police department. Returning home and expecting less intense work than the city of Seattle Tessa thought it would be just like any other night but soon a dead man is found, stuck via a harpoon to a sign. Definitely a bit less routine. As a result of this strange crime Tessa teams up with Logan, a local park ranger, to find the murderer.

There are currently four books published for this series and six announced with expected publication in 2020 (October and November, respectively) so I will be jumping back into this series sometime soon, I just need to figure out when that will be.

About author

Brittney Soban

Brittney is a writer, reader and general lover of all things that end up printed on a page. With a few published poems and a lot of unpublished stories and novels she spends her days doing a nine to five job while wishing she was home working on the worlds she loves to create. As “punishment”, her and her brothers were banned from watching television for a week, leading to Brittney deciding that the free books at the library were better than TV and, in a very Matilda fashion, she took home loads of books every day and has never looked back. A reader of all types of literature, she will read practically anything put in front of her as long as something within it, no matter how small, sparks her interest. Give her high fantasy, science fiction, mystery, it doesn’t matter, but her love does lie within the fantasy and YA genres. A series junkie on top of everything else, she picks and chooses when to begin a series based on how many standalone books also await her attention in her to be read pile. Once she starts a series she will read every installment available back to back until she finishes a series or is forced to wait for the next publication. Called a book dragon by her boyfriend, the term is fitting as she owns more books than anything else and is quite sure her obituary will state she died under an avalanche of books. She truly wouldn’t have it any other way.
