I am glad to report to you that this is a clean mystery. There is practically no profanity, and there are no sex scenes whatsoever. There are no violent scenes nor any descriptions that will cause you to squirm. It is rare to find a book like this--especially a mystery. I also notice that this is the first in a series, and I am certain I would like the read the next in the series. Clarice was almost reminiscent of Miss Marple of Agatha Christie fame.
If you are looking for a quick mystery read with a few unusual twists, I would recommend this book highly. You will find small town charm and intrigue that will keep you guessing!
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
As a Florida born girl myself, I loved the setting and authenticity offered in Make Old Bones. Make Old Bones begins with the murder of Connie, a 15 year old girl that was never solved. Move ahead to what would have been her 30th high school reunion and the discovery of her bones in the dumbwaiter. From there you head out on a wild and tangled journey to find the killer, excuse me, double murderer, while a hurricane, or `cane, is bearing down on the B&B this is centres around.
I loved that while I strongly disliked the killer from the get go, I didn't `solve' the murders until right near the end. The story writing was rich. The `feel' was so real that I felt like I was there. I actually honeymooned in Dayton Beach to the setting was great, IMO.
For any that have never dealt directly with hurricanes, this story also portrays how violent and viscous they are. . . and how communities often come together. Leslie S. Talley really did her research on the area, issues, weather, and more to weave together a wonderful mystery/thriller that any that love the genre will get lost in, only coming up for air on the last page.
