I read Her Mother’s Grave with three of my Traveling Sisters and this story left all of shocked with that final twist that we all enjoyed and never saw coming.
Her Mother’s Grave is the third book in the Detective Josie Quinn series and has come to be the favorite of the three for me and this series has also become a favorite of mine. Josie did not start out as a favorite character for me and I really thought she was cold and hard to connect with, in the first book Vanishing Girls. It took me a while to warm up to her and I really wanted to know what demons haunt her. Well, Lisa Regan takes us back to Josie’s childhood and we finally see who that demon is and see into to her dark past. A little darker than we thought it would be and Lisa Regan shocked us a bit here, as we didn’t see some of that darkest coming from her.
After human remains are discovered Detective Josie Quinn is on a new case and we start to see a connection between Josie’s past and present. From the very start, we all were hooked and didn’t want to leave a coulee into we read the very last page.
Lisa Regan does such a fantastic job here creating and developing Josie’s character over the three stories, allowing us to think and feel differently for her with each book. A real talent and gift from an author who can have us more invested in a character with each book. For me and a couple other TS this one is the best in the series and one not to be missed. I highly recommend this one and of course, I highly recommend this series. If you haven’t read it, I suggest putting this one and the whole series on the top of your list.
Thank you to NetGalley, Bookouture, and Lisa Regan for a copy to read and review.
