Review – Walking on Her Grave(Rogue River #4)

Walking on Her Grave(Rogue River #4)
By: Melinda Leigh
Release Date: November 18th, 2014
Publisher: Montlake Romance
Series: Rogue River

This, ladies and gentlemen, is how you round out a series! I have to say that while I tend to lean toward the characters in Kendra Elliot’s half of this novella series I was pulled in immediately by Melinda Leigh this time and the final book in the novella series. If you’ve read novellas one through three already, go ahead and finish the series. If you haven’t read any start with number one, you won’t regret it.

The pace in this book is fast, I was turning pages quickly and I was especially pleased by how fast the plot moved.

The story line continues to focus on the lethal drug, C-22, and the lives it is destroying in the small town. Carly and Seth are the focus here once more and we see how they struggle to respect each other’s decisions and job while doing their own work. A runaway teen and dead bodies means that nothing will end easily here in Solitude, Oregon and, as fans of thrillers and romantic suspense, do we want it do be easy?

A lot of things come full circle and while I’ve seen other reviews stating that they wish the story had gone on a bit longer (and maybe been a novel rather than a novella) I have to disagree. I came into this series knowing it was all novellas and that it was only a snapshot of the town and, setting that expectation for myself, I dove in knowing I might not have every single answer to every single question but that the big ticket items were answers. And they were.

Really, what more could a novella reader as for?

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 With a few published poems and a lot of unpublished stories and novels she spends her days doing a nine to five job while wishing she was home working on the worlds she loves to create.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