The Bones She Buried by Lisa Regan Review

Another Josie Quinn book down, and I can’t get enough! I can’t believe in such a short time there have been 5 books! Josie is one of my favorite characters of all time; Such a strong, independent woman! She has been through so much (go read book 1 to 4) and has come out even stronger.

This time around, the story involves Noah, Josie boyfriend, and fellow cop, and as much I hated to see how this affected their relationship, I really enjoyed the storyline! As per usual, I couldn’t see the ending from a mile away. I already can’t wait for the 6th book and can’t wait to find out more about Josie and Noah’s relationship. I’m a huge fan of romance as well, so I absolutely love that this series has a great amount of mystery/thriller sprinkled with romance!

Every time I start a Josie Quinn novel, I know I will not be able to do anything that day and I will need to finish it! Get ready for an action-packed page-turner!

Thank you to Bookouture for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.

Lisa Regan has done it again with another phenomenal detective novel featuring Josie Quinn. After reading Her Final Confession in December, I knew I wanted to keep following detective Josie Quinn's series. The Bones She Buried proved to be just as addictive with an intense and complex case of murders to be solved. 

As I read this novel, I was certain I had it all figured out on several occasions, but turns out I didn't. It kept me on the edge of my seat until the final twists where family secrets and sins come to light. It's definitely action packed as Josie struggles to keep up and make sense of the different murders and torched houses. The author does a great job at building the plot gradually and making sure not to give too much too soon.

I love Josie's appetite to solve her cases. With this particular one, it causes friction between her and Noah when his mother is murdered but after being picked apart, they find their way back together. 

Prepare yourselves for another wild ride as Josie, Finn and Gretchen try to solve the case and outrun the killers. As soon as I turned the last page, I knew I had to go back and start from the beginning and read the first three books in Josie Quinn's series. And I'll be waiting for the next installment in the series as well. 

My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thank you to Bookouture for my copy in exchange for an honest review.

Here's a quick synopsis:
Arriving with her partner Noah for dinner at his family’s immaculate countryside home, Detective Josie Quinn is devastated to find Noah’s mother, Colette, lying lifeless in the back garden, her mouth clogged with soil.

Searching the house for answers, Josie’s team don’t know what to make of the rosary beads buried in the dirt near the body, or the hidden file labelled “Drew Pratt”, the small town of Denton’s most famous missing person.

As she delves deeper into Pratt’s case, Josie quickly discovers he had a brother who’s body mysteriously washed up on the banks of a river. There’s also a diary entry suggesting that Colette may have met him on the last day he was seen alive. Can Josie believe the unthinkable, that a kind old soul like Colette might have been involved in their murders? And, will Josie’s new relationship with Noah survive the accusation?

Josie’s only hope lies in tracking down Pratt’s daughter. But when she arrives at her home to find she’s been murdered just minutes before, Josie knows the real killer is one step ahead and won’t stop until Colette’s secret is buried forever. With many more innocent lives on the line, how deep is Josie prepared dig to reach the truth? (Reference : Goodreads)
