NEVER FORCE YOURSELF TO READ A BOOK YOU DO NOT ENJOY
The Bone Keeper
by : Luca Veste
Pup date: Feb 1, 2019
What if the figure that haunted your nightmares as child, the myth of the man in the woods, was real?
He'll slice your flesh.
Your bones he'll keep.
Twenty years ago, four teenagers went exploring in the local woods, trying to find to the supposed home of The Bone Keeper. Only three returned.
Now, a woman is found wandering the streets of Liverpool, horrifically injured, claiming to have fled the Bone Keeper. Investigating officer DC Louise Henderson must convince skeptical colleagues that this urban myth might be flesh and blood. But when a body is unearthed in the woodland the woman has fled from, the case takes on a much darker tone. The disappeared have been found. And their killer is watching every move the police make.
The brilliant new police procedural from Luca Veste, featuring series characters Murphy and Rossi - a guaranteed page-turner.
It really is a page- turner , because as soon as i read the first page which has the poem i was hooked because of how keep it was and is ,
The Bone Keeper's coming
The Bone Keeper's real
He doesn't stop
He doesn't feel
He'll snatch you up
And make you weep
He'll slice your flesh
Your bones he'll keep.
The story is told in chapters title Before and Now, while the before chapters can be a little confusion at times , the more you read the more understanding their become and eventually link up to the rest of the story , but to understand how and why you have to read the story. As for the characters the only one i had trouble with was Louise, there was times i just had trouble believing in her character .and you have no idea if its a copy cat or if the Bone Keeper is real . So if you like stories like this and not just any type of story but the ones that holds an element of surprise and actually gives you the heebie-jeebies and uneasiness with its creepy children’s rhyme and an urban myth that plays on people’s fears, think the bogey man crossed with the worse kind of killer ( like Jack the Ripper) and your half way there.Plus add a touch of the slasher elements to it and you wouldn't want to go any where by yourself. With that said I would like to think Netgalley for letting me read and review it in a change my honest opinion.
The last attack happened more than 50 years ago in another sleepy resort-side village called Bodega Bay. Little was known about that attack, since several of the principals involved either fled or died off soon afterward, and many of the records were ordered burned along with the dead birds. In fact, no one can be sure it is the same situation after all these years. Tory McKnight, a future ornithologist working on a migration project, at first refuses to believe the reports she hears. Later she feels there must be a reason for what is taking place in the quaint town of San Clemente and begins to investigate. As things progress from bad to worse, more professional help is needed, and it may already be too late. For everyone who was left hanging with more questions than answers from the movie The Birds, and for all those who like a good suspense horror book, this will satisfy your cravings. Joe Moore's first book in a darker genre will keep you on the edge of your seat and searching the skies. Hurry and read this before the next gathering My Thoughts: Rating:4.5 If you like or love The Alfred Hitchcock movie The Birds then you might like this. Wow just wow, what a read.I can differentially say it has a touch and fell of the Alfred Hitchcock movie , and while it's better than the movie The Birds 2, non thing can beat the original movie, and I have to say reading this at night right before going to bed was not a good idea especially if you have a love bird in your room, because unfortunately I read this before going to bed and it give me nightmares which is something that horror neve does. It takes the story a lot deeper and more dark then the Alfred Hitchcock's movie ever did, and it adds something to the story , but you have to read it to find out. With that said I want to thank Netgalley for letting me read and review it .
In this spellbinding and suspenseful debut, a young woman haunted by the past returns home to care for her ailing mother and begins to dig deeper into her sister’s unsolved murder.
Sixteen years ago, Sylvie’s sister Persephone never came home. Out too late with the boyfriend she was forbidden to see, Persephone was missing for three days before her body was found—and years later, her murder remains unsolved.
In the present day, Sylvie returns home to care for her estranged mother, Annie, as she undergoes treatment for cancer. Prone to unexplained “Dark Days” even before Persephone’s death, Annie’s once-close bond with Sylvie dissolved in the weeks after their loss, making for an uncomfortable reunion all these years later. Worse, Persephone’s former boyfriend, Ben, is now a nurse at the cancer center where Annie is being treated. Sylvie’s always believed Ben was responsible for the murder—but she carries her own guilt about that night, guilt that traps her in the past while the world goes on around her.
As she navigates the complicated relationship with her mother, Sylvie begins to uncover the secrets that fill their house—and what really happened the night Persephone died. As it turns out, the truth really will set you free, once you can bear to look at it.
The Winter Sister is a mesmerizing portrayal of the complex bond between sisters, between mothers and daughters alike, and forces us to ask ourselves—how well do we really know the people we love most?
Five stars all the way
Wow just wow
First off I would defiantly recommend this book to my friends.
It's as suspenseful as I was hoping for as well as having that dark twisted I love in books.
Because as soon as I started reading I couldn't stop , it pulled me in to the story and had me hooked from the very beginning and wouldn't let go because I had to know what happened and why .
It even made me question wither Sylvie and Persephone had anything to do with Persephone's murder or if she some how know who did it because she was keeping secrets from the sister's, and how she played them off against one other .The entire time I was read The Wine Sister I dislike their mother ok ,so it was more then dislike ,I plan out hated her. It also had me question whether Ben was killer and he was other person I didn't like very much as was Persephone because of how she acted tours her mother and sister . Like I said before this book is definitely suspenseful with a dark twist that I didn't see coming .And it seems like everyone has secrets to tell more so than others. It even had me going back and forth between Persephone's mother and her boyfriend on who killed her.Because of how crazy her mother seems and how her boyfriend acts. To find out more you have to read the book.With that said I would love to give a big thanks to the publisher for inviting me to read and review The Winter Sister as well as to Netgalley in change for my honest opinion.Can't wait to see what else this author comes up with.

While I did like how it went state by state and give information in their monsters and history as well as some of their lore ,I wish it would have given a bit more about ever thing I listed up above . As well as more of the drawings that where in the book , with that said I would like to think Netgalley as well as the publisher for letting me read and review it .

Can't wait to read more from this author.
Six school friends go on a camping trip and after a night of partying, one is missing in the morning; the discovery of her body thirty years later reopens a cold case investigated by a former classmate who envied the group from afar in a gripping thriller for readers of The Woman in Cabin 10 and the Lynley series.
One night during the scorching summer of 1983, a group of teenagers go camping in the forest. The evening starts like any other--they drink, they dance, they fight, they kiss. Some of them slip off into the woods in pairs, others are left jealous and heartbroken. But in the morning, the youngest in the group, Aurora, has disappeared. Her friends claim that she was safe the last time they saw her, right before she went to sleep. An exhaustive investigation is launched but no trace of the teenager is found. The search is eventually called off.
Thirty years later Aurora's body is unearthed and Jonah Sheens is the detective put in charge of solving the long-cold case. Back in 1983, he had played a part in the search as a young cop, and their small-town community meant he had known the teenagers--including Aurora--personally. Now, he's determined to finally get to the truth of what happened that night. His investigation brings the members of the camping party back to the forest, where they will be confronted once again with the events of that night--events that left one of them dead, and all of them profoundly and forever changed

Thriller with a paranormal feel ,everyone seems to have secrets, keeps you guessing on who would want Eleanor dead, for a while I thought she came back as a zombie ( but you have to read the book to find out why I thought out), also it keeps you guessing on who Eleanor can trust , and how does her almost death content to the murder girl's from the summer before. What can I say but I loved it . With that said I would love to say thanks to Netgalley for letting me read and review it in change for my honest opinion.
First in a gripping new mystery series about a retired MP and her bomb-sniffing dog who become embroiled in an investigation in the beautiful Vermont wilderness
It may be the Fourth of July weekend, but for retired soldiers Mercy Carr and Belgian Malinois Elvis, it’s just another walk in the remote Lye Brook Wilderness—until the former bomb-sniffing dog alerts to explosives and they find a squalling baby abandoned near a shallow grave filled with what appear to be human bones. U.S. Game Warden Troy Warner and his search-and rescue Newfoundland Susie Bear respond to Mercy’s 911 call, and the four must work together to track down a missing mother, solve a cold-case murder, and keep the citizens of Vermont safe on potentially the most incendiary Independence Day since the American Revolution.
A Borrowing of Bones is full of complex twists and real details about search-and-rescue dog training that Paula learned through the training of her own dog. With its canine sidekicks and rich, dramatic story, this debut will be a must-have for mystery fans.
