Review – Gone to Her Grave (Rogue River #2)

Gone to Her Grave Gone to Her Grave
By: Melinda Leigh
Release Date: October 21st, 2014
Publisher: Montlake Romance
Series: Rogue River

In the second novella of this series we focus on Social Worker Carly Taylor. Believing a kid has been falsely accused of dealing a lethal new drug she works to prove the kid innocent. This determination puts her at direct odds with her estranged husband Seth, the detective in charge of the investigation.

Seth’s constant worry and oversight of Carly as he believes her job is too dangerous is was drove a wedge between them to begin with. Even as this case becomes more intense and, in reality, dangerous, Carly still can’t see beyond Seth’s over protectiveness.

While I didn’t love this novella as much as the first installment Melinda Leigh didn’t fail to impress me by pulling me into the story so fast, especially in the limited pages of the novella.

Much like the first (and like all of Kendra Elliot’s and Melinda Leigh’s stories) there is a definite suspense/romance pattern here. As I’ve said before in my reviews of romantic suspense novels and novellas, if you don’t like the formula, don’t read. While it is quite predictable the plot makes for an enjoyable read that is fast on top of satisfying that need for some thrills without diving too deep into a story.

Overall I enjoyed this installment and I’ve already read the next.

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 With a few published poems and a lot of unpublished stories and novels she spends her days doing a nine to five job while wishing she was home working on the worlds she loves to create.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.
