Bare Bones – Kathy Reichs

First, the bones of a newborn baby are found in a wood stove; the mother, hardly more than a child herself, has disappeared. 

Next, a Cessna flies into a rock face. The bodies of the pilot and passenger are burned beyond recognition, and covered in an unknown substance. 

And then a cache of bones is discovered in a remote corner of the country. But what happened there, and who will be the next victim? The answers lie hidden deep within the bones – if only Tempe can decipher them in time...

For those of you who read my last review, you would remember that Sookie Stackhouse is one of my favourite heroines. Speaking of favourite heroines, Temperance Brennan is right up there.

There is something great about strong, intelligent and feisty chicks in literature! They make for great reading. Tempe never fails to please.

In this novel, our beloved anthropologist finds herself helping the police investigate three different cases. At first, they seem like they are unrelated, but are they? What could the body of a newborn baby, a missing teen, a plane crash and the discovery of some buried bones, have to do with each other? If anyone can solve this puzzle, it's Tempe.

This is book number 6 in the Bones series. There isn't really anything new here... sure the story is different but Reichs has a formula and she sticks to it. That's fine by me though, because that is what I like about these books. I know what to expect.

One good thing about this book, is that Tempe and Ryan FINALLY get it together. About time. The tension and attraction between these two characters has been played with throughout all the books so it was great to finally get some satisfaction!

I must admit, I do prefer the Bones books set in Québec rather than North Carolina. They are more interesting somehow... but that could be because I enjoy learning about the French Canadian culture and history.

I am looking forward to the next book in this series. I think I am about halfway through what has been written to date. 

You may like these novels if you like Karin Slaughter or James Patterson.
