Book Review ~ Gone to Her Grave by Melinda Leigh

Finished ~ Gone to Her Grave (Rouge River 02) by Melinda Leigh
Completed 10/11
3 of 5 stars
110 page Kindle

I received this book from NetGalley for my honest review.

Gone to Her Grave is the second book in the new "Rouge River" series by authors Kendra Elliot and Melinda Leigh, a series of novellas set in small town Solitude, Oregon.

My review of the first book ~ On Her Father's Grave by Kendra Elliot.


PLEASE NOTE ~ I am unable to turn off my emotions when I read / review. This book is likely MUCH better than my review. My judgement is clouded by my own personal feelings. The first book was fantastic, and some of this one was as well. Please take this review with a grain of salt and try the series, as it's very enjoyable.

Book 2 starts where book 1 left off. There's still a new drug out there that is killing people. In this one, a woman is in the hospital, still alive, after trying the drug her kid brought home with him.

Carly Taylor, the sister of Stevie from the first book, is a social worker who believes that the kid who is accused of dealing the drug is innocent. She sets out to try to prove it, getting herself involved in 3 separate issues/families. She's also separated from her husband who believes her job is too dangerous and she's left him because of that. They have to work together to find out who the dealer is, and to get the drug off the street before more people are killed.

As for my thoughts on the book, please remember I'm clouded by feelings about this, so I did not like it as much as others will.

The story is quick moving and, in my opinion because of many things, not nearly as good as the first book. I'm not a fan of Carly and if this had not be apart of this series I really want to continue reading, I would not have read this book on it's own. Seth isn't much better than Carly, trying to control her and what she wants to do, and they don't talk to each other.

The story of just the drugs and searching for who is dealing is fine. The stories with Carly and the different families is not. It's hard for me to rate, really, even harder for me to read. I hope fans of romantic suspense will try this series. It's fantastic, overall.
